1973 Dodge Colt Is The Muscle Car Subcompact That Got Overshadowed...​

Introduced in 1970 as a 1971 model, the Dodge Colt was Dodge’s response to the AMC Gremlin, Chevrolet Vega, and Ford Pinto. Based on the first-generation Mitsubishi Colt Galant, it was one of the first captive imports and offered the Mitsubishi brand its first federalized product to be sold in the United States. The Dodge Colt never received the attention it deserved, being overshadowed by Dodge’s muscle car lineup consisting of Coronets, Chargers, Challengers, Monacos, Polaras, and Darts.

Cute little car. Seems to have a lot more style than some of today's sub-compact cars. I briefly owned a 1978 (Mitsubishi) Dodge Challenger. While it do the name plate any justice, it was a nice, small sporty car like this Colt.

It is funny how many people don't know about the 1978 Mitsubishi Dodge Challenger or even the 1970s Colt in today's world. While it was completely underpowered, it was indeed stylish.
