On its day brilliant, needs patience at times


Rotor arm failure in distributor cap.

Chassis rust requiring re-wielding.

Starter motor burn out.

Big bearing on #4 cylinder head wear requiring replacement and crank shaft replacement.

General Comments:

The car never fails to put a smile on my face.

Handles very precisely and pulls strongly above 4500rpm.

Looks fantastic and still turns heads everywhere.

Is hard work to drive slowly.

Not good if you are taller than 6foot.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
