Lot 290 - 1980 Mitsubishi Sapporo
|Sold - £4,480
- A very clean and tidy example
- Substantial history folder
- Rare and sought-after
The Mitsubishi Sapporo coupé was in production from 1978 until 1984. These were very well equipped vehicles for the time. Standard equipment included four electric windows revealing a great looking pillarless coupé, power steering, alloy wheels and a radio cassette. Compare that to the UK based manufacturers at the time and it is easy to see how the Japanese manufacturers managed to gain such a foothold in the UK market. These cars are supremely reliable and simple to work on.
This example was originally registered in the UK on 5th September 1980 and presents in remarkable condition, particularly taking into account the car is 40 years old. The white coachwork is in very good condition and the beige velour interior is also in very good order showing no real signs of wear. We are advised the car drives well and is supplied with a V5C registration document, a MoT test certificate which expires in February 2023, service books and manual, together with a substantial history folder. These cars are rare and highly sought-after. Mitsubishi Sapporo’s in this condition are virtually unheard of.
