BUY­ING TIPS

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - The Best 1976 Buys -

These cars can rot hap­pily. Most im­por­tantly check the MacPher­son strut mount­ings.

Check sus­pen­sion mount­ings and body strength­en­ers.

In­ner sills need care­ful in­spec­tion, like­wise the seat­belt mount­ings, where rot can be a ma­jor safety is­sue.

En­gines are strong but of­ten thrashed, so watch for un­even tick­over and tim­ing chain rat­tle.

Check for tired gear link­ages and trans­mis­sion bear­ings.
