Astounding bit of work!
Door lock fell apart when I slammed the door, now I can't lock the door.
Water pump died, radiator, hoses.
Fuel filter clogged.
Speedo cable broken, so no speedo or odometer.
All these were because the car sat for 10 + years before I had it.
I absolutely love this car! The little Slant 6 is bulletproof, you couldn't kill this car if you wanted to! Of course if you did somehow actually manage to kill it, chances are the parts to fix it would be under $100, seeing as they made a billion of these motors.
More power than I thought it would have. Engine sounds Hoover-like when revved.
Steering has a lot of play, rear end whines, upholstery non-existent.
All these factors, and I still love my car. It's my first car, but I would not get rid of this car for the world. It's so unique and gets so many compliments wherever I go. When you're at a stop light people ask what it is, and in parking lots it's a people magnet since they're not very common.
It's not even restored! It's in beater condition and it still gets all the looks.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
