In reply to the letter sent to you by M.J. Reynolds regarding his GT V4 Corsair which he considered disappointing.
I find my GT V4 extremely smooth through the gears rather like a 6-cylinder engine. The steering is light and very positive and the amount of turns on mine did not increase after running-in unlike M.J. Reynolds, who said that his did.
The fuel and temperature gauges, I think, are in the same place on the dashboard as M.J. Reynolds, and I suggest that he gets some new glasses.
The engine is very quiet and responsive. I only get 21 miles to the gallon as compared with Mr. Reynold’s car doing 29 m.p.g. Perhaps he should look under his bonnet and make sure all his plug leads are on and that there is no blockage in his carbnretter.
If you wish to drive round corners like a lunatic this car will not do it, but for normal fast road work it is well suited, At 22 m.p.h. in top gear it is smooth with no jolting; it also pulls away very well from this speed.
I would also wager my GT V4 will out-accelerate any de luxe V4. Taking all points into consideration this GT V4. Corsair is one of the very best cars I have ever driven—GT Cortinas included.
