1980 Dodge Colt Overview

It very well might be sent home first on America's Next Top Model, but the mini-compact Dodge Colt gets the job done, and cheaply too. With its low pricetag and great mileage, this Mitsubishi-built car may be no great shakes to look at, but it certainly is one of the better values for a city car, commuter-mobile, or starter vehicle. The 1980 Colt adds a 4-door wagon to its lineup, in addition to the 2-door hatch.

In 1980, the Colt was offered with two different engine choices, the unchanged 1.4 and 1.6-liter I4s. Both came standard with a twin stick 4-speed that switched from power to economy modes, ostensibly giving you an eight-speed shifter. A 3-speed auto tran was optional.

Owners have been impressed with the durability of the 1980 Dodge Colt, particularly its unbreakable engine. Other high points include great fuel economy and a surprisingly fun ride. The pricetag is just right too. Major complaints focus on the aesthetics, as the Colt is rather plain and comes with few creature comforts on the inside.
