Can they be used as daily drivers?
Yes, from my personal experience a well maintained vehicle easily handles the requirements of being a reliable daily driver. Performance is adequate for acceleration onto freeways and they cruise nicely at 65. Keep the brakes and electrical system in good shape and add seat belts for your safety. Those big plush seats make for a really comfortable daily driver. Gas mileage is reasonable for a 3,200 pound car. Add a clock and original Mopar 802 pushbutton radio and you will be traveling in style.
