Behold, my 1973 Corona MkII!
Okay... so... Several months ago I was searching for a MkII wagon, but found a MkII sedan with appx 45k on it down in LA. I couldn't pass it up. I was planning on being in Anaheim at the end of December, so we planned on meeting then. Unfortunately he couldn't make it then, but we rescheduled for early February when he said he'd be in Portland. So, two days ago was that day. TE37Jake and I drove down and picked it up... then drove to Woodinville, then back to Seattle to drop it off at my place, then I had to take him back to Tacoma. It was a 480 mile day (give or take), 10AM to Midnight.
My goal was to get something that didn't NEED any work, but that I could also make small improvements to as time went on. With only about 45k on the odometer, and the original owner having sold it in 2008, it's in great shape.
I hope to attack one little area at a time and clean up individual parts
Took off the front and rear bumper bumpers today. Front took some significant cutting and grinding. Finished it off nicely by chamfering all the work and topping with a nice coat of black on the mounts.
I'll pick up some of those chrome plugs to cover the resulting holes.
