Car History

Story with my Galant started back in 2016 when after two years of searching in Poland I decided to import the car from Switzerland. I took so long because I was strictly after a second facelift, black or blue 2.5 V6 wagon with panoramic roof in Avance package, which as it turned out later does not exists (there were no factory Avance with panoramic roof).

Finally, in the spring of 2016 I found a black Elegance, factory equipped with TCL, ASC and a full Nardi Torino interior (steering wheel, shift knob, parking brake lever and even headrests with holes). I bought it based on 6 photos from the auction, so a bit blind. When it had finally arrived it turned out that the car was quite neglected inside and there was rust all over the underbody and suspension. Luckily the engine and gearbox were in a great shape, mileage was low and overall condition was way beyond what I could find in Poland. I wanted to do a quick underbody restoration, maybe 2 or 3 weeks  ...and so the Galant cut full year out of my life, pulled me like an anchor to the financial bottom, swept my social life and eat all my holidays and weekends.

I will not write about what was done, because I did everything that has to be done mechanically on the car. The chassis, after unscrewing what I could (suspension, fuel system with a tank, brake system, exhaust, bumpers, side skirts) was grinded to the bare sheet metal and sealed with primers and underbody protective products. Most of the parts were sandblasted and powder coated, some of them rebuild from stainless steel (fuel filler, filter mounts, etc.). Braking system has been fully restored (new brake pistons, seals, new rigid and flexible braided lines), the car has been soundproofed inside, the entire front suspension has been replaced with CTR, the rear has been fully restored with polyurethane bushings. I’ve spent 3 weeks in my garage doing a 2-3-step paint, lamps and windows polish.

I’m not a mechanic, most of these things I did myself for the first time.
You can check rebuild progress photos on my IG page, but that’s not even half of the work that has been done to this car:

Not too much mods yet, because for now I’ve focused on building a solid platform for future upgrades and bringing it to a perfect mechanical condition. Visual tuning is not my thing so I don’t plan on doing aggressive body or stance modifications. I’m more after good handling and sleeper look so brakes and suspension are my priority.
