Here's my '76 RT115 Corona SR-5 hardtop with a 20r and w50 5-speed. When I picked it up in March it had 105k Original miles and was 99% original and complete. 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 nearly mint interior minus a small tear in the driver seat bottom. I've installed a Weber 32/36, new wheels, chin spoiler, and a 2.25" exhaust w/ header. The only other change I've made was a slight drop in the front to match the sagging rear, but still maintaining a very useable ride height.


How it looked when I found it:

Ford Courier springs, cut 1 3/4 coils to lower the front of the car even with the sagging rear leaf springs.

I've always had a bit of a weak spot for the various pillarless Corona Coupés. The RT115 is even one of the better versions imo. Cool colour too and I like your subtle yet effectful mods.
Keep her clean and enjoy!! :tu:
