A classic and good looking car to drive by near the beaches

General Comments:

Excellent comfort and pleasure to drive. A real treasure from the past...

Nothing bad remarkable except the high consumption of gasoline (about 10 to 15 litres /100 Km's)

Poor lights (6 Volts model)

No stiff bars.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
