And to keep it looking new, it [jets a 7-step dip-and-spray rust protection treatment. fenders are bolted on for easier, lower cost replacement if need be. Now, about the nuts and bolts Cricket is powered by a 4 cylinder, 1500 cc. engine that has been tested in all kinds ol weather, so Cricket knows all about Canadian winters. The twin-carh version puts out 70 hp. 5400 rpm. The transmission is a fully-syn- chronized 4-speed unit, mounted on Ihe floor. If you prefer, you can got your Cricket with 3- tpsad automatic.
