    74 Corona coupe 5spd

    hi everyone,
    i went and looked at a 74 Corona coupe today. 5 speed and running. it has some rust.

    so, my question is.. how rare these are in the US, especially the factory 5 speeds?

    thanks for any reply's..

    that is one of the 74's i kept coming across when trying to research them a little. i think that one is for sale in NZ..

    but yes, i've always like the look of the 74 coupe's so i am considering picking it up but there was a little more rust than i expected so i am giving it some more thought. it is pretty cheap though so we'll see..

    so they are pretty rare then?

    I believe they are. Or course rust is a big issue. Only you'll know if it's salvageable or not.

    It's rare. I've only seen 1 or 2 at US old school shows.

    Yes the 74-75 Corona is very uncommon. I know of one that is a complete basket case in Fontana for sale. Been for sale for a very very long time. That car is a bit of a roach. But there was a mint 75 SR in the junkyard a few years ago. Had I found that car when I found the one in Fontana I would have bought it. There is a very nice green one in San Diego that is RHD. I had pictures of that one, but on my old computer.

    If it's the Fontana car you're talking about if you can get it for 200 bucks then it's worth it. Like I said. That car has been for sale for a very very very long time. Like almost 2 years.

    Fontana car wasnt a running car nor did it have a 5 speed in it and he was asking like 800-700 for it back then and that was/is a basket case.

    I'd get it but i would really look over the rust issue. Here in Tucson, there are two identical colored car i've been chasing for years! So far, can't really blame them fro not selling. I content for now with my rt105 4dr sedan
