1973 Dodge Colt Overview

In 1973, the first SnoDrift performance rally kicked off in Michigan, a race that was held on snow-covered gravel roads. The third place finisher in this inaugural event was a Dodge Colt. Unbeknownst to most owners of this economy subcompact was that the Dodge Colt was popular on the rally circuit and would continue to place well in subsequent SnoDrift events.

The 1973 Dodge Colt was virtually the same car as in 1972. A 2-door coupe was available in either hard or soft top versions. A 4-door sedan offered a little more room for four, and a 5-door wagon featured extra storage capacity. Reclining bucket seats were suprisingly comfortable for front seat riders. Engine choices on this rear-wheel drive were either a 1.4-liter I4 or a 1.6-liter I4 at 85-hp and 90 lb-ft of torque.

The 1973 Colt was based on a Mitsubishi platform, and as such performed much like its Toyota counterparts. It got great mileage, was energetic due to its light weight, and had a pretty durable engine -- features which made it an attractive economy purchase.
