So about two years ago my father gave me his 72 Corona Deluxe. This one is currently under construction and the head is being redone. Its a rust bucket with several dents, but the interior is very nice. So two nights ago i was surfing around on craigslist and i see a 72 Corona for $600! Its been kept in the Oregon high Dessert so there is no cancer, the interior is shot and there's about a centimeter of sand buildup on the car. So I called the guy, drove down there and bought it for $440 with some extra stuff! So as of now it is being delivered to my house and when it gets here i will post some pics! :lol:

Here are some pics of my other Rona:

So, the plan is to completely strip and sand my new rona while I'm driving the old one. In order to do that I'm gonna have to find someones garage I can use, because I don't have one... :(
I will post pictures when there is progress

Very nice! I can't believe you got a hold of two in sort of the same colour even! Good luck with the project.
