1974 Dodge Dart Custom Slant Six 225 from North America
This is the first vehicle I have ever owned as I just got my drivers license before purchasing it.
Nothing major has gone wrong with the car, I had to replace the battery, but that could be attributed to the amp and stereo that was installed.
Additionally, I had to get brake work done, as the shoes, lines and wheel cylinders were pretty worn.
The car was previously owned by a little ol lady who only drove it in winters and none of this work had been done in years.
Also, the engine needed a tune up, as there was a slight miss when the car was at idle.
The carb needed adjusting as well, in addition to the typical repairs such as radiator flush and good vehicle once over by a mechanic.
I love the front seat, the bench type seating is like sitting on a couch at home. The little vent windows are also super cool and provide for much ventilation. The interior gets somewhat warm on hot days, like the dash etc, which I cannot figure out why, but is normal from what I hear. In the over a year I have owned this car, it has definitely been worth the 1400 I spent.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
