Slow, cheap and reliable


A very reliable car for its age.

Did only change small things like brushes on the dynamo etc.

General Comments:

This was my first car.

All of my friends laughed at me when I was ragging through town in a 55 HP diesel.

Not a perfect car for a youngster, but reliability and low fuel costs, gave me the opportunity to spend money on other things as well.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
