Electrical malfunctions now and again, brakes got soft quickly.
Best cop car built! Will eat-up a 9C1 Caprice. Breakneck acceleration, intimidating presence on the road.
I bought this car from a friend my senior year of high school for $100 (yes, a complete running car for a bill). I put some money into it to make it roadworthy, and fell in love with it soon after. It was assigned to a police investigator and never saw active police duty (i.e, constant idling and high-speed pursuits).
The factory 318ci had been bored out to 360. This car could leave rubber for 50 yards. Everywhere I drove, other drivers got the hell out my way thinking I was a cop. The front-end styling of this car demands respect and no one ever pulled-out in front of me in traffic, which is priceless.
The brakes did get mushy pretty quickly due to the massive weight of the car.
Other than the cost of gas and brakes, I spent basically no $ on this. I was forced to get rid of it after it failed inspection (hole in frame). I still keep my eyes peeled for these, but I doubt I will ever find one again; especially not for 100 bucks. My advice: buy one. Mean machine...
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
