Faults:

Lock-up torque converter stayed locked, unplugged computer from torque converter, problem solved.

Excessive wear on seats.

Carburetor needed rebuild, but I decided to replace engine instead. :)

General Comments:

The car originally had a 305 V-8 with a TH-200 transmission. I have replaced this with a 4-bolt main 350 with a Torker II intake, Flowmaster Afterburner exhaust manifolds, and a dress up kit. It is now mounted to a Turbo 350 transmission.

Handling could and will be improved with new performance tires and lowering springs from Eibach.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
