We had out Explorer for about 2 years and it was ok, but it wasn't what we really wanted or needed, especially with gas being so high. When we found this car for less than we had been offered for the Explorer, we sold the Ford and grabbed the Galant!
(I don't have this car anymore. Believe it or not, it was stolen right out of my locked garage while it was partially disassembled for restoration back in the mid 1990's. The car's picture, and those in it's album, are of a similar car sourced from the Internet.)
As a Corvair nut, it's kind of obvious that I like unusual cars. Well, this one was unusual even for a Corvair! How's this for a build sheet: The base 95 h.p. engine hooked up to the optional 4-speed transaxle, and powering the rare factory-optional air conditioning? Not only that, but it had the ultra-rare AM/FM radio too! I got a great screamin' deal on this car, and it served me very well as a nice weather car as well as taking myself and my three kids in comfort to several out-of-town Corvair Club events. It may not have been blindingly fast, but that air conditioning sure made up for a lot of that!
