Ugly, much better than they looked
Minor problems, you could adjust everything on this car!!
I replaced the brake shoes soon after I bought it, probably the simplest, most effective self-adjusting brake system ever.
I had a little trouble with steering-wheel play, adjusted out nicely. My dad had another Mosky, his steering box died, but I rebuilt it for peanuts with new bearings from the dealership.
I got stopped by the cops one night for "showing a white light at the rear of the car". Some idiot had fitted high-power bulbs in the rear lamps which burned through the plastic lenses. Very cheap replacement, like all parts for these cars, they were built to last forever with only limited attention from Boris the blacksmith.
These cars were full of character. Surprisingly quick for their size, the engine was a bulletproof hybrid OHC/OHV.
Great little touches like the venetian blind in front of the radiator and the umbrella-handle handbrake that could lock the rear wheels.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
