Nothing much to say for my vintage candy blue Sprinter (I love it!)


Just a simple rust in the body... but it is OK right now.

Rubber in the windows has worn out after 35 years. (not bad!)

No air-con.

Worn out speedometer and front shocks.

General Comments:

Very low maintenance...

Grills are like a knight in shining armor...

Rides like European cars...

Very economical... You can have a engine swap for a race...

Interior is very nice... Paint is awesome...

With our 5 cars, this is my baby old school car.

Vintage, but reliable!

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
