Like a brand new 75 Valiant inside. Starts and stops like a brand new car.
Ride and handling compromised by this:
This bit is supposed to be underneath the car. It was still underneath when my friend bought it, this happened about 15 minutes after the plate went on. Not a big loss, he bought it for the big bolt pattern manual disc brakes and a few other items for the Barracuda. It was just such a charming car he decided to drive it for a few weeks before parting it out. It was actually on the road last year but only lasted 15 minutes under new management.
It also smells and drives like the 70's. Even with the rusted out frame rail it still drives and turns right quite nicely. (It probably also turns left but I can’t swear to it, never tried)
