love these cars. these were known as the Mitsubishi Celeste in japan, they are cool looking fastbacks, glad Plymouth got a hold of some to bring over to the states.

These could take leaded gas. I saw an ad for the Arrow in a Playboy of all things and that was one of the selling points during the fuel crisis. Same with the MkI Civic.

I lusted for this car back in the day. One of my paper route customers had one, walked passed it ever afternoon. Still not a bad looking car.

Nice proportions indeed, look at that side profile. Great to see it still ticking.

its mitsubishi all over. I think naming it an Arrow was an awful idea. I am an archer even.... like, Arrow - it's a good name for a thumper bike or a skateboard. They probably did it on purpose to sell more Furys.

Amazing coupe. Great color of car paint. In Europe they are really rare (don't know how in USA but I think so) and they called Mitsubishi Lancer I. Newest generations of Lancer can be spotted very often but first gen like at this post is THIS THING! Sry for my bad English. I from Poland. :)

Bought a '78 Arrow new from a dealership that failed to tell Chrysler Credit Corp. that I should have received credit for a trade-in vehicle. The Arrow itself kept running and running. After six years and 90K miles, parts availability had become zero, so I sold it.

Really liked that little Mitsubishi. Last I recall the dealer who sold it to me was believed to have fled to South America.
