Chrysler’s connection with Mitsubishi goes back to the early 1970s, when the very first Mitsubishi Colt Galants shown up from Japan with Dodge Colt badging. Lots Of Mitsubishi-built Arrowheads as well as Ram 50 oppositions as well as s complied with, as well as the joint Chrysler-Mitsubishi plant in Illinois started constructing autos in1988 By the 1990 s, you can discover Mitsubishi DNA throughout the American Chrysler family members, as well as the Mitsubishi GTO was brought over to end up being the Dodge Stealth beginning in1991 Right here is just one of those first-year Stealths, currently staying in a Colorado self-service boneyard.
4 qualities of Stealth were readily available below in 1991, with the R/T Turbo AWD at the actual peak. This auto, a routine R/T, is one action down from that version yet still a quite fast maker for its time. MSRP was $25,155, or regarding $55,370 in 2022 bucks.
The R/T obtained this naturally-aspirated DOHC 6G72 engine, displacing 3.0 litres as well as making 222 horse power. Power went up to 300 steeds if you obtained the turbocharged variation in the R/T Turbo AWD (or the Mitsubishi 3000 GT VR-4).
The 3000GT(as the GTO was recognized below) was mechanically the same to this auto yet had somewhat various designing.
The GTO/3000 GT/Stealth changed the Mitsubishi Starion as well as its Chrysler/Dodge Conquest brother or sisters, which were offered below from the 1983 via 1989 version years.
The Starion was a rear-wheel-drive maker that contended up for sale versus the Toyota Supra as well as Nissan Z, while the Mitsubishi GTO was readily available with either front- or all-wheel-drive. As highlighted by this picture of the back suspension, this auto is a front-wheel-drive variation.
Americans enjoyed transmissions 30 years earlier, almost as high as we enjoy them today, yet this auto has an appropriate five-on-the-floor handbook. If you desired the optional four-speed automated, it set you back 813 dollars ($ 1,790 today). The Stealth R/T AWD had a necessary five-speed handbook transmission.
This auto has actually been struck hard by junkyard buyers as well as the wear and tears, yet it was relatively lavish when brand-new. A/c was basic tools on the R/T, though out the minimal Stealths.
This auto resembled 150,000 complete miles, yet dropped a little bit except that landmark.
The final year for the Dodge Stealth was 1996, though the Mitsubishi 3000 GT continued to be readily available below via1999 The Mitsubishi GTO hung on via 2000 in its homeland.
Outhandles the Lotus Esprit!
