Hey everyone! I know that I posted earlier about looking into a specific Corona RT95 that I saw locally, and that I might buy it, well long story short I BOUGHT HER!! :mrgreen: I picked her up for pretty low, and IMO she's in pretty decent condition for what I payed. However the biggest problem I face is swapping out or fixing the 18RC which blew a head gasket a few months ago :? The body obviously needs work, but as I have most of the parts already on the car, that shouldn't be too difficult!!

These are only pictures of the exterior, but once I start the restoration in a few days, I'll be sure to post pictures of the interior, engine, etc.

All the help is appreciated!!

Looks beautiful as is. The patina of the hood is spectacular. Good luck with the restoration, it's always good to see such jewels getting a second breath of life.

Wow its kinda funny how many of you want to keep the patina on the car!! :mrgreen: I was considering leaving it rusty and as it is, but I'm not sure yet because there aren't that many of these cars anymore...

Nice buy. Looks great as is. A bit of a mismatch on the rims though.
