MSapporo - Paul

Post by Msapporo » Wed Aug 28, 2019 10:50 am


I’m Paul, originally from The Netherlands.
Moved to Atlanta,GA. A few years ago.

I still own 3 Mitsubishi Sapporo’s but they are stored in The Netherlands. One of which is a convertible (modified later)

Getting a bit restless, so started looking to build up a Sapporo/Challenger collection here in the USA.

I am only interested in the type 1, 1978-1980, but these seem to be hard to find.

Great to see other old-Mitsubishi enthusiasts.

I’ll add some photos of the Sapporo’s I have owned in the past.
currently only own the red one, one of the grey ones. and the blueish convertible.

Welcome to the group, welcome to America, and thank you for finding us and for joining our humble little forum.
You have boarded the lifeboat jettisoned during the rude and untimely demise of Classic Colt Forum Circle.

Are you affiliated with this excellent website?

May I ask what brought you to Atlanta?
And how do your Sapporos feel about being left behind?
Will they ever cross the Atlantic?
At what elevation are they stored?

In March of 2012 I digitized the 1971-1983 dealer service manuals and parts catalogs for the U.S Chrysler imports.
If you'd like a copy I can mail you about 14GB of material (around 10,000 pages) on a USB flash drive
along with a ZIP archive of car ads dating back to about 2012.
Mostly craigslist, some eBay, a smattering of other venues.
If you're not shy about placing a phone call on an ad from two years ago, you might find what you want
and start building the new collection.
Fret not, quality specimens of these cars continue to surface.

I am on the verge of dismantling a 1978 Dodge Challenger.
I expect that it is in most respects the same as your cars.
If you need anything at all, do not hesitate to ask.
I've dismantled four others of this A135C chassis and kept almost everything except the unibody.

1978 Dodge Colt coupe ("Volga")
1982 Plymouth Sapporo

Welcome to the South! I personally have only seen a hand full of decent builder Sapporo's in this area. I'll keep an eye out for you though!

welcome to the site, it's great getting new members on a forum these days. Seems like most are dead, but a few of us hold on, maybe a bit slowly, but it's still going :)
