Summary:

A lovely jewel of American sedans

Faults:

The suspension, I have had to change everything, but after all that, my car is doing well.

I have to repair the engine; it was the first repair after 32 years!!

Previously I have adapted the natural gas system; it was the worst thing I have done with my car; it began to work bad, without synchronicity, powerless. Finally I had to replace valve packs, carburetor, plugs, but OK, it was a bad experience with a profound lesson: not to place a non-original combustion system in your classic car. The more original, better performance and more value for your jewel..!!

General Comments:

It's a wonderful experience driving this antique car. It's superb, trustworthy, comfortable and you feel safe. All you need is a good mechanic, love, passion, dedication and investment in original parts, but it's worth it...

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
