Picked that as the #1 POS car in my life.

In retrospect though, after many decades now, perhaps it wasn't so bad...simple, reliable and got great gas mileage.

Low body line with high roof line - Good! Minimal pillars maximize driver's view - Good!
Normal size wheels and tires - Good! Real fenders - Good! Curb weight around 2200/
2300 lbs - Good! Current value in excellent condition circa $12900 (Hagertys) - Yeah
man, what's not to like?

Greetings.

I suddenly find myself forum-less so I figured it was long past time to warm this account up.

Yup, and it's not just middle aged nostalgia, it really wasn't a bad car, looking back at things.

Column shift three speed and vacuum operated wipers are just a couple of things that would befuddle a modern "driver".

Almost as simple, light, and economical as my 1958 Hillman Minx.
Likely faster, and possibly more crash-resistant, but we didn't worry about how cars crash back then.
