Summary:

Nice, fast and cheap

Faults:

I had a carburator leak, bad exhaust (which made me change my exhaust 2 times, first the last exhaust, then the middle exhaust), and very bad state of conservation of seats.

Bad battery.

General Comments:

I knew I wouldn't buy an old car without problems, but I'm very happy with the car since I solved it.

It's very comfortable, excellent driving and it tops out at 200km/h.

Excellent comfort on the rear seats.

It has great driving and it behaves like on rails.

It came with excellent body paint and a smooth clean engine. Loved it.
