The car is one that once owned you would regret selling and want to buy another as soon as possible


Considering the car's age, very little.

Timing chain and ring and bearing job done at approximately 150,000 miles, and a full recondition at about 370/380,000 miles, not really sure, too long ago.

Seats have had cloth inserts fitted and some vinyl replaced where worn.

Replaced the points with electronic ignition and found the car performs better and has more power.

General Comments:

This car has been good reliable transport for work and trips.

The ride is quite firm, but very comfortable, my wife and I like it this way.

For an older car it handles well, good performance and is a real eye-catcher on the street.

I would not sell this car for any price.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
