Heres my newly acquired '76 RT115 Corona SR-5 coupe with a 20r and w50 5-speed. I Just picked it up last week with 105k Original miles and 99% complete, just missing one center cap and the driver side rocker trim. It has a few dings and dents and some minor rust at the base of the windows, but overall a very clean body with a near mint interior minus a small tear in the driver seat bottom. I'll be starting a build thread to cover the small upgrades and repairs but the plan is to keep it clean and simple.

So far I've replaced the coils with progressive rate springs from a Ford Courier (cut 1.75 coils), new KYB shocks, new calipers and pads, new ball joints, and new stabilizer bar end links. I picked up another set of leaf springs to firm up the rear, and will be installing a 32/36 and new header back 2.25" exhaust after I pull the windshield and rear glass to fix the little bit of rust in the frames and stop the small leaks.
