About 7 years. I rebuilt the engine but that was the main problem. I changed the steering to manual, it's a lot harder than I thought it would be. I just have to put the power unit back on, if it will fit. I flushed the radiator yesterday and that seems to have fixed that. I think the gas gauge trouble is the tank sending unit. It's always something with these cars. Part of the game. It's still drivable and maybe I have to high of expectations. Still love it.Gees Terry that is a list for sure. One thing then the other. How long have you had the car? Did you restore it?
