A great old car if you can find one with a good engine
I got the car rusted out and running poorly for $350.
Door seals stuffed so water leaks.
Water leaking caused carpet to mold.
Bad front seat upholstery.
Tread-less tires. (I think it is an ex bush-basher).
Bogged the rust and gave it a new paint job.
Cleaned inside right out, started smelling normal.
Put in new windscreen.
Changed oil, oil filter, air filter, degrease and cleaned engine, flushed old petrol and gave it new petrol.
The car was a dream for my first car. Handled very well. Poor top speed though. Very dodgy tape player that could not be removed. Sprung a leak in the radiator hoes I was unaware of and burnt it out. My mate took it for a drive a month later (after it had been driven a lot) and destroyed what was left of the piston rings and bearings. The whole engine needs an overhaul now. It is a great car as long as you treat it like it is old or when you first get it you replace all the rings, bearings, pipes... everything nearly.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
