    Sonny's '69 RT43 Corona

    How's it going fellow JNC'ers, here is a picture trail of my 1969 Toyota Corona that I purchased off this site earlier this year. The car had been sitting in a junkyard for atleast 20 years before I picked her up.

    I have a bunch of pictures of all the progress but for now here are a few before and after pics.
    I will update as time allows.

    Before:





    Updates: Rebuilt Head, Repaired Radiator and sanded/painted with clear coat, New Waterpump, Electric Fan, Removed A/C, Removed Smog Pump/Hoses, Replaced Airfilter Cover, Rebuilt Carburetor, New Points Ignition, New Ignition Coil, Removed stock Muffler replaced with a temporary Thrush Glasspack, 15x8 -7 Offset Enkei EK64 Wheels, 165-55-R15 Federal Tires, Re-upholstered seats and dash cover, New Carpet, Polish and repainted Front Grille, Sanded down engine bay and painted with Clear Coat, Re-wired Engine Bay, Cut front springs, new shocks, Rolled front and rear fenders. Many more updates to come.

    After:

    i rolled my fenders using the old metal pipe method; took about 2 minutes to do.

    i cut just about 2 full coils off the front. im thinking of cutting atleast half a coil more.

    Glad you were able to get her before they scrapped her. She has cleaned up well. Are there any other plans for her?

    Thanks UtahSleeper, It has been a lot of hard work. I plan on doing a few more mods in the near future. Next year I will be doing an engine, trans, rear-end and brakes swap.
