Actually a very underrated motor.
My dad had a few from the 1200 Riva to a 4x4 Niva and the later 1600 Samara estate.
I actually had one for a year or so and apart from the distributor eating itself it was a good cheap runaround.
We had a couple of dealerships in Keighley that helped things a bit, Colin Appleyards, who are a Suzuki dealership now and Reg Thompson (now gone).
Barrons of Bradford were the biggest in the area and the spares were dirt cheap.
