*Lovely doesn't necessarily mean it worked!
I thought so. But I drove it for two years without a hitch and with the then new-fangled radial tires it was a dream to drive - for that time in history at least.
It had leather upholstery, what we called a 'sofa seat' and a column mounted gear shift handle.
I miss bench seats. So many lost opportunities with buckets.
Way back in high school I had a beater 68 Plymouth Satellite with bench seats. That led to what back then we called "COD" turns for "come over darling" - a hard right hand corner so your girlfriend would end up in your lap. Also known as an "SOB" turn - "slide over babe!"
