    one more to the family(corona)

    i picked up a 1970 rt43 corona about a week ago and im loving it!
    i have done a bit of work including wet sanding but no compound or polish yet,new exhaust,and basic engine maintenance

    if there are any other corona owners in or around corona(yes i live in corona)please let me know.

    ...Nice :mrgreen: Paint looks to have shined up excellently. The world needs more time capsules.

    Not a Corona owner, but I'll keep a lookout for you when I'm in the vicinity (looks to be somewhere along Railroad?), and buy you some fish tacos if I see you. They always go well with a Corona, to continue punning 8)

    Is it just me, or is there no evidence that rear door handle holes ever existed?

    yes your are correct in two points
    those pics are outside my work that is off railroad witch is where the car is kept and yes apparently the never had door handles??
    well at least that was what i was told
    you may also notice the corona and deluxe badges are missing with no holes.
    i guess the previuse owner had the car made for him?when it was made that way im assuming was after production.
    so know im on the hunt for door handles badges and mirrors.
    do you own an older toyota?

    Mine is a 69 and is oiginal black plates. Matches my 69 Crown with the V8. Mirrors are the TE27 ones flipped around. Been to TORC since the late 90's.... That sticker on the back of the car is one of the original TORC stickers. See the 1600GT grille? ops:
