Tuff as nails, with a classy look


The only problem I've had with this beast is the gas mileage, otherwise I put a tune-up kit in her.

General Comments:

It handles like an ocean liner, rides rough, but I haven't walked yet.

I use it more as a tractor than a highway rig. I bought it from a farmer just outside of town, that's how he used it too. It's a work-aholic, gas guzzling, tire wearing, loud and ugly.

My future plans are to do a complete restoration, back to factory. (with a few extras of course)

It came from the factory with a 396, 400 Turbo Hydro-matic transmission, a real screamer in its day, from what my old man told me.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
