as these old original brakes just did not stop very good.

Last time I was out driving it alternator was charging 14.1V
It's a nice older car where everything is functional and 99% is working.(NOTE: wiper does not work, it's vacuum powered and I have not tested or look into what hoses need replacement)
NOTE: The Diagonal tires has been replace with more road worthy Radial Tries for Reliability.
The tread of a radial tire does a better job of gripping the road and provides improved durability and maneuverability. Comfort. Because their plies run radially from bead to bead around the tire instead of diagonally, radial tires are more flexible - giving you a more comfortable ride.
