How many miles are on the car? the chain has most likely been rattling its A** off for years while gramps just ignored it, and cousin had the misfortune to be behind the wheel at that moment...they normally give many miles of rattles before lurching. Too bad, Grandpa could have had a new chain rolled in for a few hundred bucks, but now your looking at major ducats $$, but if done prudently the car is worth repairing and then maintain and enjoy...
