Totally restored, this is a stately, luxurious car with a smooth silent, powerful ride. I love it
Manual Remote Side Mirror Mechanism.
Right Hand Back door Power window motor died at 20,000 km.
Cruise Control Mechanism Failed.
Shocks, Struts Springs - old age failure.
Radiator rusted through from lack of use.
Muffler and exhaust system - old age failure.
Bought new by my Father in 1978 new. Car was seldom used after his death in 1983. Car remained mostly in garage. Old age and lack of use were the real problems.
2005 had car completely restored and new paint job. Original interior in immaculate condition. A really handsome, stately car in very dark metallic green with clear coat. Powerful, smooth ride. Very quiet - Had all doora and hood and boot lids carefully realigned - better than originally installed. New polution-free air conditioning system installed.
While I personally drive BMW Z3, this magnificent classic car is a joy on the highway, with the ride of the big American cars of old. Had suspension replaced with a tighter feeling system.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
