Summary:

A classic that is fun to drive!

Faults:

In the first month, I had to replace the hydraulic pump for the top.

Other than that, mechanically, it's running well and I have no complaints.

General Comments:

I really enjoy driving this car! It's a classic and I get lots of compliments about its great looks.

The body is clean and the car handles well.

I don't have the rocket 350 carburetor, but that's alright. It still is fast enough for me and the gas mileage is better than the big block or the 4-barrel carburetor cutlasses.

Look for a blue convertible on the streets of Chicago-land in the spring, summer and fall (weather permitting).

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Summary:

What a Sleeper!

Faults:

Total Restoration, but that is to be expected after 32 years right?

Since the restoration was completed 3 years ago, nothing at all has gone wrong except a light blew out behind the gas gauge.

General Comments:

Awesome power and Performance.

Will do 13 flat on 295/15 are 15's all day long, but it will eat the gas.

Don't get on it to much and you can get 15 to 18 out of it on the highway.

Cheap to rebuild on the engine part.

Performance parts are harder to find, but when you do they are of the best quality.

Headers and Flowmaster helps a lot, and so does the Edelbrock 4 barrel.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
