an exceptional car of great design and good quality but much maligned by the press and ignorant commentators

i have had 4 of these cars and i too was put of at first by the press and ignorant commentators as to the quality and reliability of this model.
However after braving my first purchase of a 75 tourer and after some initial teething problems [bottom pulley failed 2 days after purchase] and a shady dealer just outside Chester [now ceased trading] not wanting to honour a warranty i found the 75 to be an exceptionally good all rounder and having joined the 75 owners club/forum i have had invaluable help from members particularly Big Russ who has been a diamond when it comes to reviving an ailing car.[never forget that the car which never breaks down has not yet been invented]
so having had 3 tourers i now have just purchased my ideal 75 a saloon in Arron white a true design classic
it has lived in France for some time so is not subject to corrosion [another problem of most cars] the body is pristine and all the mechanics in top condition
