Summary:

Good car for the money

Faults:

Valve Cover Gasket seems to disintegrate within 2 years, changed it immediately after I bought the car and have had to change it again recently.

Complete steering box failure (probably a result of previous owner misaligning and over-tightening it to the front cross-member.

General Comments:

Fairy quick and economical.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

The FD still looks good as a design today. What a pity they never went as well as they looked in original factory spec.
