1978 Plymouth Volare Custom 225 Slant Six 2 Barrel
Great car, fun to drive, and very comfortable seats
All the radiator hoses went (from age and dry rot).
Carb went at 57,000 (due to me beating on it). It sucked the gaskets in. The valve cover gasket went (due to age).
Body rotted out at the bottom, and so did the frame in the middle; my reason for getting rid of car.
This car was fun to drive; even with its 110 horsepower it still moved.
I never got stuck in the snow. It handled the snow great, plus being rear wheel drive, it was also fun to play in the snow.
Driving on dry pavement, it handled like it was on rails. It took every turn I threw it into beautifully.
The hill hugger transmission was great for me because of my long legs. I had to drive with both feet because the steering wheel didn't have tilt. Oh well, I still loved it.
The slant six was a beautiful engine. I couldn't kill it, and believe me I tried everything (without draining the oil and running it dry).
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
