General Comments:

Good runner for a 43year old car.

No leg room

No features, all basic.

Good fuel economy, but heavy on oil.

Always problems with brakes.

Body work needed, but not a lot of rust.

No dents on the body, this car is as hard as a rock.

It's got a good engine, still running after 43 years and 352000 miles.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
