General Comments:

Obviously the marks section is by comparison with other cars of the period. In terms of roadholding, ride quality and the glorious all-synchro gearbox, this car is a delight to drive and eats up long distances both enthusiastically and reliably.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
