Summary:

Funny looking starter classic

Faults:

The rubber brake link pipes cracked and had leaks.

The vinyl of the seats is disintegrating.

General Comments:

Fun spartan little car. Will run forever if not brutalized. Spare parts are really cheap. if you can, buy the spares in Spain. I paid 3 € for a brand new front turning light.

Seats four in comfort. Trunk is great.

The engine is bullet-proof.

Not the nicest car in the world, but funny looking.

No servo brake, no power steering, no electric windows, no air conditioning, no radio, no cigarette lighter, no fog lights... there is little that can go wrong!

Beware of rust. This car is protected with Spanish weather standards. If you live in a wet country, just don't buy this car unless it has been well cherished.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
