I thought I would start a thread for a car I just purchased from JNCer Yotaman. It will make a beautiful addition to my Cressida once it is fully refinished. It certainly isn't in the best shape but it has some massive upsides. All the glass is intact, the original motor runs, and it is a factory 4spd, which is simply unheard of in Canada. The car isn't at home yet, but here are the pictures I have so far, showing the good and the bad.
There are a fair amount of half-done repairs and bondo on the body panels but the frame seems solid. Aside from the driver's side floor pan and the rockers most of the body seems salvageable. We'll know more once I get it home and set to work with a wire wheel and a grinder.
More to come, comments and suggestions are more than welcome. The short term plan is to shore up the body as best as possible to prevent further corrosion. A full body restoration will be done once I finish school, for now I just want to get it driving again and looking decent.
