Got this used for $800. Needed another $1200 to get it into good mechanical condition. Interior is still very nice; the body is rusty in the usual Michigan places. 205+K miles on the straight six w/auto trans ... still runs PERFECTLY. Amazing powertrain.
The straight-six motor. Overall reliability. Hooks up real well for 2wd.
More rust-resistance ... the driver's seat belt mount rusted out completely! I welded in some angle iron. I hope it holds!
