An exciting, individual and irreplaceable car!
Rust: top of the front wings, bottom of the doors and the front panel below the bumper, however new wings only ten pounds each, and the HS air-dam covers the rotting front panel!
Pre ignition: a good decoke sorted that one.
Carburetor diaphragm: wouldn't idle or go over 40 mph, got a replacement free from college!
Excellent ride, handling and comfort. Fitted heavy duty springs and gas dampers, and the handling is even better now!
Fun and rewarding to drive, I love this car!
However, it would seriously benefit from a 5 speed gearbox and electronic ignition, otherwise excellent all round!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
