Summary:

Well maintained, or decent shape, it's definitely a great car all around, I would buy another one

Faults:

Had to rebuild the carburetor ($500).

Had a problem with the heat, but very minor (all when I bought the car).

General Comments:

Beautiful looking car, if well maintained it will last forever.

Interior is average for its year.

After the fixes I did to it, never had a problem with it ever again.

Even with a V6 instead of its counter V8, it still had a lot of power.

Summary:

Great reliable gas pig

Faults:

The car is flawless except for window seals and the sun visors creak and the hood shocks don't work.

General Comments:

I am in the process or redoing the whole interior black. It has a Buick Grand National hood and doors, and I am putting a nice street 350 in the winter.

The differential and transmisson are bulletproof, not sporty. But she's a torquie little bugger bone stock.
