Last of the great Mopar squads
When I got it I never even had it checked out mechanically, I just looked under the hood and at the body, realized it needed a paint job, and said yes.
Since then, it has needed:
Main rear oil seal (leaking)
Freeze plugs (weeping)
Water pump (leaking, toast)
Timing chain (two inches of slack)
Front brake rotors
Front brake calipers
Pinion seal (leaking)
Emergency brake cable replaced.
R&R motor and:
Clean motor (layers of oil and grime)
Cylinder heads resurfaced (leaking)
Carb adjust (thermostatic spring)
Rear brake drums resurfaced
Rear view mirror fungus
Driver's side door hinge that must be lubed with motor every few months
Some slightly sloppy trim fitting
A great and underrated automobile. Dependable motor, tough, durable, reliable, comfortable, powerful, utilitarian, classic. Great seats. Great lines. Smooth, firm and comfortable ride.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
