For Sale: 1992 Mitsubishi 3000 in Mesa, Arizona

Vehicle Description

This 1992 Mitsubishi 3000GT SL is a one-owner, low-mileage preserved coupe. And while you'll love the dark and sleek look of this fuel-injected classic, you'll want to take some time to appreciate how special this particular example is.


The story that we're told is that this was first used as a promotional vehicle by Mitsubishi, including for some sales literature. It was also featured as part of the display with Boyd Coddington's Mitsubishi-powered Alumacoupe. While we don't have verified proof of this, the timelines do seem to come together, and this also wears a set of similar Boyds wheels as on the Alumacoupe. What we also do know is that you're looking at a carefully kept one-owner classic. The Obsidian Black is the factory original application, and since this car has averaged only about 1,000 miles annually, it has the clean look worthy of the coupe's bold lines. The 3000GT is one of those great wind-cheating designs with pop-up headlights that give you a sleek flat front. The factory body kit had enough brake cooling ducts to make this look like a racecar, and the full-width rear spoiler appears track-ready, too. These had one of the sportiest looks of the era, and so we often see them get enjoyed a little bit too much. That's why finding such a crisp, clean, and well-respected example like this is a standout for more than just its story.


The interior is just as fresh and preserved. It showcases a nice mix of comfort and technology. A modern classic means bucket seats with plenty of bolstering, and these are clean and complete, right down to the distinct textured inserts. Yours even power adjusts. This has a nice performance attitude with a large speedo and tach directly in front of you, and all the auxiliary readouts are at eye level. You have all the best modern comfort features, too, like power windows, power locks, driver's airbag, tilt steering column, cruise control, and the factory AM/FM/CD stereo. The air conditioning is blowing cold, and we love the look of the digital readout on the automatic climate control. It all makes for the right merging of luxury and technology that were the hallmark of 1990s Japanese sports cars.


The engine bay looks as clean as you would expect a cherished and maturely maintained sports car to be. Everything is correctly in place, right down to the decals. And on this one-owner car, it's hard to believe it's anything by the original powerhouse. This fuel-injected 3.0-liter 24-valve V6 is the envy of the new classic imported performance car scene. Mitsubishi are masters at this kind of multi-valve motor. So this has plenty of low-end power, and it always feels like there's more power in reserve even at highway speeds. Plus, you have an all-around great anytime driver with the fully independent suspension, power steering, four-wheel disc brakes, and four-speed automatic transmission w/overdrive. We even have a receipt from 2020 for over $5k for proper maintenance on fundamentals like the A/C, coolant, and fuel injectors. It makes for a terrific driver, and so we know you won't be able to resist adding to the low odometer.


The sale comes complete with the dealer invoice, full owner's manual packet, sales literature, and maintenance receipts. This is the new class of modern classic vehicles, and so you know the desire for such a well-preserved example is only going to grow. Don't miss this deal. Call today!!!
