Absolutely NOTHING, until the frame rusted out.

General Comments:

This car was my BEST vehicle purchase. I bought it for $175.00 and drove it everywhere.

I bought and installed a new convertible top for it when I got it, and it never gave me any trouble.

I received 19mpg highway with 6 passengers, luggage, and the top down.

My kids loved that car.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I grew up in a '69 and loved that car! Tons of power and floats down the road like a cloud. Probably couldn't even fit one in the modern 1.5 garages these days, but I miss it and can't think of a single thing that was problematic.
