In need of consistent tuning.
Motor rebuilt - it was getting a bit sluggish.
Could be hard to start some times.
Rear tires keep evapourating.
Bit of rust in all the usual places.
Cold drafts in cabin especially by feet.
Heater never worked properly - replace heater core numerous times.
Clutch bands in trimatic (traumatic) auto replaced.
Some over heating issue's when first purchased remedied by fitting a fan shroud - I don't know why they were sold in New Zealand with out them.
Head lights were shocking.
This car was cheap and surprisingly powerful and quick considering its size and engine.
4 years after the engine was rebuilt this car recorded 109 hp at the rear wheels on the rolling road. Not to shabby for a 253 V8.
This car was in original condition, and had only 2 owners for the first 25 years of its life.
Ain't nothing like a bench seat for cornering at high speed.
If I could find another factory V8 HQ one in this car's condition I would buy it with out hesitating.
