Hydramatic damper plate springs cracked and failed at 55K Kms.
Power brake booster failed at 55K Kms.
Master cylinder failed.
Heater/demister valve leak.
New King Pins at 53K Kms.
One occasionally noisy valve lifter/tappet.
This old Premier looks, steers and runs like new and is absolutely original. Its smooth, quiet and surprisingly powerful for such a small engine.
The Nasco power assisted drum brakes work fine, but you just can't slam them on suddenly without a lock-up.
This unit is one of only 50 EHs to have power steering factory installed. It's a scary option too. The steering is as light at 80 km/hr as it is doing a reverse park. Very twitchy.
The Hydramatic transmission is not the world's most responsive unit, but it answers the question adequately when you need to to take off a bit quicker than usual.
The rich smell of the red leather seats takes me back to when at 6 years old my Dad used to take me and my mates to footy practice in his old EH.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
