Absolutely!
The 4 doors are pretty much just parts cars for 2 doors, convertibles and wagons. The rise in value of the others have brought the 4 doors up from the basement, but they are still very affordable. Endless repro parts mean keeping one running and looking good is a simple chore.

However, you may want to drive one before you commit. They are old cars, and drive like it. Pathetic brakes, lazy steering.
