So, some of you may have seen my previous thread about pricetag on this car.
Now its finally mine!
This is problably the only 1970 Corona in Sweden according to the previuos owner, an old lady who bought this back in 1976.
In june i was taking a walk with my dad in his neighborhood, suddenly I saw a roofline I recognized behind a hedge, I took a couple of quick steps closer to the driveway and my jaw dropped to the ground.
What an awesome little car!!!
I took a picture of it and then went home. But this car haunted my thoughts the rest of the day and the next day I went back and dropped a note in their mailbox saying I was interested if it was for sale. Already the next day I got an answer from the lady.
Apperantly it had been in her and her husbands garage as long as they have had it, but pretty much standing still for the last 10 years, now they installed a new garage door and the toyota had to move out for a couple of days. She told me that she have had thoughts about selling it for some years, but didnt really know how(?!), so if I was really interested I could buy it. And so I did!
Future plans includes some nice old school japanese wheels, maybe 14 inch? A couple of inch drop and sportier fender mirrors, problably celica mirrors.
But first I need to fix the boring stuff; brakes and rubber bushing for the cardan shaft bearing.
