This car was basic, hardworking, reliable, and I wish I had another
Brake work done several times.
The universal joint was replaced.
The alternator was replaced.
The transmission was rebuilt.
It developed a cold start problem. It would only start on cold days if the engine was cold.
It had lots of carburetor work.
The manifold cracked.
The suspension went bad after about 12 years.
This car had a 258cid and it would climb Everest.
It had no pick-up, but at speed it could cruise for hours at 75.
It was very, very good in the snow.
The front seats were very comfortable. The back seats, not so much so.
It was a good car for trips - the trunk held a lot.
I regret ever selling it. It was a workhorse, inexpensive parts, relatively easy labor.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
