A Hornet is a great, reliable car that can be either a hot rod or grocery getter
The valve cover gasket leaked oil. Very easy to replace.
The oil pan gasket also leaked. A pain to replace requiring an engine lift.
Normal wear and tear for an older car.
This car is very reliable. Parts are easy to replace and everything is very simple to understand.
Sometimes parts are hard to find, but with a little effort they can be found.
The 258 motor needs a few performance upgrades, but after installation it has a lot of pickup.
AMC interiors are known to be unusual, and sometimes the seats become uncomfortable.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
