Hey guys this is my new 77 corolla wagon deluxe
i saw this one online,i emailed the guy and bought it.
it turns out the car was one mile away.i love it!the car has been sitting for 17 years.i was able to fire it up first try.im going to run through the car to see what it needs before its roadworthy.this thing needs a good cleaning forsure.i plan to daily it and have something fun to drive while my other 2 corollas are stripped down.i already had a great first experience with it.i had thrown some spare rollers on it to unload it off the trailer,a tire had gone flat and the car got stuck at the very end of the trailer..so when we were rocking it back and forth i had fell through the trailer and cut my leg up.lol it was great.

I went through the car today,i found a rats nest under the seat.they ate threw the carpets,luckily nothing else.
i pulled the seats so i could tear out the carpet.found alot of trash and bones..nothing cool though.
i washed the exterior and got 4 inches of dirt off of it.
I pushed it in my garage next to my mango until next payday.im going to flush out all the fluids,put new hoses,belts,wheel cylinders, brake pads and clean out the tank.

Looks better now that you have separated the dust from the body, looks worth saving for sure. Good luck with the rebuild.

Thank you :tu:
the body is pretty straight and solid.it has some minor surface rust but nothing bad,and i live in arizona snit wont get much worse.
the only bad part of the car really is the interior but i can piece it back together little by little

If you are going to drive something with 4 doors--that is the way to go!!!

I have two TE37's, but I'd like to get my hands on a wagon.
