Found one I like but friend told me to try and find out if there are any major problems with this model. I'm a blonde with no mechanical knowledge!

You are talking about a 42 year old car so there could be tons of things wrong with the car. You need to have it checked by a professional mechanic before buying it and if it needs certain parts, interior, sheet metal, lights, etc. find out if they are still available.

The 260 V8 Oldsmobile motor is a great long mileage motor, not much performance but it will save you much gas.

If you are lucky, it would have the 5 speed manual trans with it also.

So basically, you will have a long running, durable car if it's been taken care of, parts are easily available ,( Chevy Nova same car basically,)as long it's not rusted badly.

Not much of a collector car, but time will tell.

Doug in P.R. :)
