1985 Ford BantamReview
A Great Little Work-horse! — The bantam has timeless styling, this one is 18 years old and is not out of place in any parking lot. The bucket seats in the Leisure I own are so comfortable, with side supports and head restraint, one could drive it all day and not feel uncomfortable All round vision is great, and no rattles or squeaks. Fuel economy is really good compared to many other vehicles of similar specs, and reliability is unquestionable. If one does regular servicing and keeps an eye on any parts that can wear there should be no downtime to speak of Not only for work purposes, it is really fun to drive during "Leisure" time Being a 1.6l engine in such a light body, acceleration is good, with braking system to match the performance even when fully loaded. If I did not already own one - I would buy one!!
Primary Use: Family transportation
Pros: Economy, reliability, style
Cons: None worth mentioning
