1987 Mitsubishi Colt GLX Auto 5 door hatchback This is a unique opportunity to purchase a one owner from new Colt GLX Auto with full service history.Finished in Palermo Grey metallic and nicely complimented with light tan/biscuit flecked cloth interior. Electric front windows Power steering Electric wing mirrors Original Phillips Radio/Cassette player This car was purchased from Mitsubishi in Cirencester (their head office) by its only owner who worked for Mitsubishi.I have the original bill of sale invoice dated 3/9/1987 for a total cost of £5938-41p which includes at 20% staff discount! The car was then registered on 7th September 1987.There is a full, up to date service history record with 27 entries in the booklet,this covers initial servicing intervals/visits at 6k miles and then from @ 1996 -when the mileage was @ 89k,oil and filter changes were carried out annually irrespective of the lowly annual mileage that was then being clocked up. The current mileage is 99,600,so the car has only covered 10k miles over the last 21 years and only 800 miles over the last 10 years. The car has had 2 cambelt changes -one at 54k and one at 98804 miles. Current MOT expires on 5th October 2017 (nil advisories) The folder also contains every single invoice relating to all the work that was carried out on the car,so every stamp in the book is backed up by a costed invoice detailing what specific work was undertaken and what parts were fitted. There is also every invoice for things like tyres/batteries/bulbs etc. Drivers handbook and 3 keys complete the package. I also have every single MOT certificate since the fist MOT was carried out in Sept 1990,and every single tax disc since 1988. It is the most comprehensive service record/history folder that ive ever seen-and ive seen a few! It really is a lovely car and sure to become 'classic' status in due course as they are built proof in terms of mechanical reliability and build quality. The boot area is in excellent order with spare wheel,jack and wheel brace .It has its original front and rear number plates -stating 'Mitsubishi Motors-Cirencester' It drives brilliantly and the 3 speed auto functions faultlessly. The paintwork and bodywork are in superb order with no dents/marks.The interior is also in tip top condition. The owner had initially purchased the car to travel from his home near Taunton to his workplace in Cirencester on a daily basis ,but retired in the early 90's and his wife then used the car for local transport until I purchased it recently. The pictures show the car fitted with a set of 'period' Rostyle wheels with chrome embellishers and Mitsubishi logo'd centre caps.I do have the original 13 inch wheels and centre caps which can be included in the sale or fitted instead of the 14inch Rostyles. In summary a brilliant example of a very practical ,well bolted together and ultra reliable piece of Japanese engineering,with impeccable service history/provenance and only I owner from new.
