Corvair Convertible

Old car going on a long trip?

I'm trying to buy a 1963 chevy corvair convertible which i'll have to drive 300 miles to get back once i decided to get the car. What would be the problem if i drive the car. Would it break down on the way back home? ARE CLASSIC CARS RELIABLE ON LONG TRIPS? This car is not new and restores and i will have to do more restoring job on but to get it back home i will have to drive back because that's the cheapest way! What are the chances that i would get home without any problems? Thanx

Are the engine and transmission in good mechanical condition? That is the thing that will count more than anything else. As long as it is running well you should be fine. Also check things like tires for dry rot, belts, hoses, fluids, and steering for excessice play. Not a big fan of driving an old car that far, but I bought a 77 Cutlass for $300 and drove it 100 miles home, stopping at every service station to fill up a leaky front tire. Had a few problems, but got it home. If you have someone travelling with you it will be much better that way.
