Summary:

Beautiful classic Aussie tank with balls and style

Faults:

The carburettor is worn out (so won't idle).

Steering box worn.

Electrical gremlin (blows fuses all of the time).

General Comments:

I got this car from a family friend for a parts car for my regal, I soon found that it was as good if not better than the regal itself.

Goes great in a straight line.

Handles awesome even after hitting a bank at 40 km/h.

Good on fuel.

Always gets me home.

When I get the money ill fix her up and keep her till I die.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
