I felt the need to post some pictures of my 1978 Corolla Deluxe. 2TC with 3-speed AT.
After a few months of working on her whenever I had free time, she Passed!
First day I brought her home
When I first started tinkering
After cleaning some stuff up and a quick tune-up. Had an exhaust leak and a bad starter so I have the manifold pulled in the picture. I ended up putting in a 4-2-1 manifold and pipe from a 3TC.
Most recent picture after passing smog
Cleaned off 30+ years of tags to reveal a 1979. Had to take a picture before I covered it with the 2014.
She made a friend during the smog test. 1979 TE51. Almost went home with it as I was offered a good price.
After passing smog I feel like I can pour some more money into this project. I'm hoping to work on suspension next and eventually I want a respray. The PO painted over the factory silver and there are a lot of areas of overspray, it bugs me. Hopefully I'll have some updates over the next few months.
