    1974 Corolla SR5 opinion needed

    Hello Everyone

    Trying to make up my mind on restoring the car.
    Pros:

    Complete real SR5.
    10 bolt rear end.
    AC car.
    long center console.
    Fender flares are in good condition with only surface rust.
    Since this is a real SR5 it has all Black interior in pretty fair to good condition.
    SR5 cluster complete.


    Cons:

    Car has usual rust issues (bottom of both fenders/rear wheel wells/rockers)
    Right qt panel will need work along with roof.

    really, you are asking for that kind of help here...

    when you have turned so many nostalgics into works of art. :mrgreen:

    body work is easy compared to sourcing rare parts

    now that i look at the 2nd gens, i rather have a second gen, than a third gen rolla..

    send it to me for scrap metal, ill take care of it... :twisted:

    I think you should sell it to me. I'll give you $100.

    Seriously, give me a call. I'd like to come look at it to see what can be done, because I think it should be restored if at all possible.

    So, when someone looks at your build page, is that a bong hit?

    On topic: Love these cars. My favorite Corolla. Can't wait to see the results!
