I got rid of my 73 Malibu after it began to leak everything and I rearend a F350 with an aftermarket bumper. It messed up the front clip and I had to duct tape the headlight in. I drove it for another 10K miles. I sold it for $500 to guy with a body shop. It leaked everything oil from the valve cover, front and rear main seals, valve guides. It also had leaky piston rings if that counts as an oil leak (internally). The trans leaked from both front pump seal and rear seal around the drive shaft. Coolant from the intake, and bottom radiator hose. If you hit the brakes too hard it would overcome the fittingl to the proportioning valve and leak brake fluid instead of sending pressure to the rear brakes. This is what caused the front end damage. It had no AC or heater. I did love that car. I haven't sat in a car what was more comfy. I drove it 15hr straight to Chicago without getting a sore spot.
Oh well, 40K miles out of a $2300 car isn't bad.
