  1. VERY GOOD CAR.
    BUT, IT REQUIRED A LOT OF MAINTENANCE & REPAIRS TO GET A GOOD CONDITION. I KNOW THE HISTORY OF THAT CAR. IT WAS USED BY AN OFFICER WHO LIVED IN INSEIN, YANGON, MYANMAR AND OWNED BY THE LEGISLATIVE DEPT.

  3. I grew up with this car as my dad was promoted and he received this car from his office once I was born. Such a coincidence! I used to stand in the front cabin beside the driver when I was little.The iron body is really thick and strong. I used to sit and stand on the bonnet. However, after years, we need to repair the body and re-paint at the repair shops every 2 to 3 years. We used to drive it at 60 miles per hour on highways and it started to shake if we exceeded that speed. It is the back-wheel driving car and I still remembered the time when we struggled in the mud road during rainy seasons while we went to some rural areas. The only part I did not like was its roof which is made of leather and the rain water seeps through the suture lines of the leather roof during heavy rain and the roof needs to be changed every 2 to 3 years. Overall, it was a reasonably reliable car.
