Sup old school import freaks,
I just recently purchased a very well cared for 79' Corolla with a 2TC. It has 129K from the orig owner. The yellow wasn't my first choice color but the car was in such good original condition, I couldn't pass it up. I buffed the paint out real nice, cleaned up the orig steel wheels and have begun detailing the exterior, stripping the sun damaged tan interior out and basic filter changes/maintenance to keep it running until the REAL work begins.
Purists, don't hate but plans are to start with a full street-tuned coilover race suspension and wheel/tire combo. I plan over the next 5+ years to build this Rolla to be quicker and better handling than my current stock AP1 S2000, or my previously owned AWD Talon TSi. I haven't determined whether to build up the 2tc or do a swap but the T40 tranny will definitely be swapped for a 5 speed whatever the motor choice is. I've owned an 81' Celica ST, and an 85' Cressida so it's nice to get back to an old school Toyota after a couple of turbo DSMs and Hondas.
