1985 Ford Meteor GB 1.5
A very practical, reliable and economical car
Speed needle jumping. I simply replaced cable.
Stalling at roundabout. Replaced petrol filter.
Blinker switch failed. Went to wreckers, plenty available from 323, meteor, laser even 626, or new if preferred.
Clock died. Loose connector only, but plenty available at wreckers.
Perished plastic knobs, handles carpet or seats. Still some nice clean seats at wreckers for $50 a pair.
I am fully restoring my red meteor back to showroom just for the hell of it. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org for a chat. - Jim.
I have nearly replaced all of the interior with nice well-looked after examples. Mind you I have picked over dozens of cars over the past 2-3 years.
For the best mechanical care and brake servicing go to an ABS franchise located in every state. My brakes use to lock-up causing a slide,-not anymore.
I can tell you all about stopping RUST and how to cure a wet boot. I've cured, not covered over EVERY rust causing problem.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
