Why Are Mitsubishi Starions still so cheap? | Hagerty Media

About 15 years ago I bought a clean, good running 1988 Mitsubishi Starion ESI-R for $1900. It's a car I had lusted after when they were new with their turbocharged four-cylinder, bulging bodywork, and staggered deep dish five-spokes, but I hadn't given them much thought for a couple of decades.

I've always wanted a Starion. Attractive, relatively quick, etc.

Hello! If anyone on here see's this. I have a 1986 Starion ESI-R in excellent condition. The only problem is that is was garaged for 12 years. Body is excellent - but gas tank is rusted out.

It was running great until I filled the gas tank and stirred the rust sediment - I need a new gas tank and I'm not sure where to look. I've already searched all Mitsubishi car parts and dealers - gas tank is not being made anymore. Definitely need to get one if anyone knows anyone with one I will make an offer.

Most big cities have gas tank repair facilities, and the work is pretty cheap. Try this "near me" search to find a place that can fix yours:
