Very nice job on the fuel tank. It appears to be identical to my Celica tank. But much better shape, I wish I could find a good one. Also nice job on the motor, it sounds good and I'd like to see some more pics!!!!

Yes I have the original springs (I believe).

The height seems stock (not lowered).

Well, I got it on the road, but only using a set of temporary plates.

I had originally planned on sending it back to Canada as-is, with a rust spot near the fuel door, but I broke down and got it fixed.

At the same time I also did the window frames, wiper arms and the cowl bezel.
Unfortunately I didn't take a good photo of that.

The cowl bezel was a ton of work, and even then it didn't come out that well. Sanding off all that vinyl is tough work, especially when you know it is not going to look perfect.

I topped off the wiper arms with new blades and screws.

Here are the goodies:

There are a pair of caliper rebuild kits and a set of brake hoses there as well.
I haven't got around to them yet!

Edit:
The tires that are on it are only temporary. They are too large.

The car and I have made it to Canada.

It has been a long journey that isn't over yet...

Awesome! What does it cost to get a car back to Canada like that?

It is hard to say exactly. I brought it back with a bunch of other stuff.

Thread back from the dead, just a quick question I am looking for input on.

With regards to valuation, what has anyone on here paid to purchase (or sold for) a similar vehicle in similar condition to this one.

This one is stock. No aftermarket stuff at all, except for some internal engine bits and ign wires.

I have a spare engine, (no distributor... sorry) as well, but I suppose that doesn't count.

Any input is appreciated!

Saw that Elvin Wes guy was selling one with high mileage, and aftermarket stuff in the 13K range on ebay. Not sure if that's a legit valuation though.

I will be placing mine for sale soon as well and I am working on trying to get a ballpark figure together as well.

Sidenote - We both are rocking the L-Types. That cracks me up!
