    Mark's 1973 RT81 Corona

    Hey guys,

    Thought I'd share my 1973 Corona SE with you all, I have had her for nearly 3 months now and is a work in progress.

    She has 108xxx miles on her and is dead original, only modification is a CD player and chrome air filter assembly (still have the original - just looked daggy).

    The car has small "AMI" badges on the lower front guards, AMI stands for Australian Motor Industries - from my knowledge the parts for the car were imported from Japan, and the car was assembled in Melbourne, Australia.

    It has a 12R 1.6L engine (same as the early Hilux's, Hi-aces and Landcruisers?) and the W40 4 speed gearbox, 6.7" Diff with 4 '1 Ratio. I have done a fair bit of work to get her tidied up and now she is a sweet cruiser and my daily driver!

    Anyway... Here it is..

    Thanks man, I'm on a work trip at the moment, can't wait to get back and take her for a big cruise! Also just purchased a front sunvisor (the old metal ones that go above the front windscreen). Should be waiting for me when I get home

    Cheers guys,

    Not much has been happening with her lately, just more cleaning up and cruising. Engine bay is pretty much all done now! Here's a pic of her on a recent cruise to keep me going until I get stuck into her more!

    Starting to get back into it! She's been doing a lot of cruising lately, had to get a fresh set if white walls done as mine had gone brown. No windscreen seal goes in next week then she'll be sweet

    Did you get the new windscreen seal off ebay or where?

    Hey Rhys,

    I got it from Rare Spares, they had some chrome stripping to match it as well! Nice RT81 in your Avatar, you should post up a few pictures and some details
