Summary:

A bargain for the price, had very little rust. $400

Faults:

When I purchased the car the brakes were faulty, however I repaired them at the place of purchase.

Welsh plugs leaked.

Spark plug oil seals were perished.

General Comments:

Changed the front drum brakes to unassisted disk. Much better braking.

The car never came with seat belts, so I thought I was rather cool flaunting the law for awhile. Until I realized what would happen in an accident, then I thought I was just stupid. :-)

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
