The speedometer has never worked.
Brake master cylinder went just before 2004's MOT was due. Plus some welding on the rear N/S sill and new rear brake cylinders had to be fitted.
Petrol pipe in the engine perished- easy to fix thankfully.
Clutch master cylinder went and required a rebuild. (why the master cylinders?)
Clutch and brake pipes perished just before 2005's MOT, that was when we got rid of it because it was getting a bit beyond our budget. The handbrake broke as well then.
The horn contact on the steering wheel was worn and required adjustment to get the horn working again.
Apart from the rust on the sills, it had only slight surface rust on the rest of the body work, which was good for the year.
The auto choke got stuck in the off position and caused the car not to start. My dad managed to fix it though.
Most of these problems were age related and considering it was 33 years old when we got rid of it, it did quite well.
The alternator was on the way out as the lights were a bit flickery and the orange charge light was on dim most of the time.
The car really did go some and the acceleration in first and second was great.
It used to get odd looks from pedestrians!
The seats were very comfortable, especially the rear one.
The heater was very good, it used to heat up in about two minutes of the car being started, very good for the winter.
The column gear change was fun.
Good sized boot for the size of the car.
The original seats were a very nice dark green, but were a bit tattered due to the previous owners having a dog in the car.
Overall, it was a very nice car to own, but in the end we just couldn't afford the repairs so we donated it to a place that deals with old cars like it.
