    my rt52 corona coupe

    i jus picked up this corona coupe. been sitting 15 years.out of the weather luckily. its pretty much rust free. RUNS! and im stoked!

    this thing is a survivor. all original except it was repainted the wrong color
    the only damage in the interior is what you can see in the bottom of the drivers seat.

    stay tuned as i bring it back to its former glory

    Re: my rt52 corona coupe

    for now i just wanna get it road worthy. im trying to get it going by jul 6th for our local week long car shows and cruise (grafitti week) it needs the typical things like clutch and brake master cyl. as far as future plans im thinking wheels and drop maybe a small chin spoiler. fender mirrors for sure. if i can find them. and when i get tired of the gutless motor i wanna swap it out too. any suggestions on what type of motor to use. i was thinking maybe a 4agze?

    any imput is welcome

    p.s. i found the grill in the trunk!

    (Browsing and and commenting whilst stoned is a bad idea, hence the edit ops: ) But a 1j or 2j would be uber rad. Your coupe makes a gorgeous car when done right and it sounds like youre heading in the right direction :wink
