    1973 Toyota Corona MarkII Wagon MX29

    I've been on JNC for a while but thought I'd finally put my cars into their garages.

    This is my latest nostalgic. I was looking for something bigger than my 510 wagon to daily drive and carry my kids and their friends in. What better car than a bigger rare Toyota? Shipped it to Salt Lake from Washington along with a parts car.

    Here's some history that I know. The brown car was parked in a garage in 1992 after gas prices reached $1.00. It was rescued the end of last year and now has the entire drive train of the yellow parts car. I still have a few items to dial in but it runs great. Both cars came with the more rare (I am told) 4 speed manual from the factory.

    The yellow car was owned by a producer at one point and was actually in the 2006 TV series 'Vanished', obviously before it was wrecked. I considered getting ambitious and repairing the yellow car but there are too many good parts that I want to swap over and it has quite extensive buckling in the unibody.

    When I got it I promptly dropped it 2" and threw a set of DR20s on it. Much better. I will update as I go but for now I'm driving it and fixing and detailing as I go. Here are some pics:


















    Here are my other 2 nostalgics:

    I really want a MkII or Crown Wagon. Yours is looking very nice sir! Especially like the DR20s on it. I agree with the sentiments about the yellow car. 20-30 years ago the parts would have been easy to find, now, you are looking at a lot of labor charges to get that worked out. Pull every good panel off of that car and then be done with it. Your other two JNCs look like great fun as well. Looks like the dime is turbo-ed, or is the intake just really shiney?

    I'm definitely planning to part out the yellow car. I will even sawzall sections if needed so as much of it stays alive as possible. I plan to post it in the parts section as soon as I figure out what I want from it but in the meantime, let me know if there's something you're interested in.

    Nope, just a home fabricated intake with a K&N. Mainly so I could adjust the carb without removing the air cleaner.

    Awesome! Great to see other MarkII wagons here.

    Hit me up when you're parting out, looks like there might be much that I need.

    I added 2" blocks between the axle and the leaf spring with longer U bolts. The front stock springs were cut about 2 coils and I put in stiffer shocks. Good luck with your coupe.
