Hi. I am new to this site, but not new to old Toyota's.
Currently have a 1973 Celica and a 1972 Corona.

Celica project has been scraped after I found out that the previous owner put 3mm of bondo over the entire car to hide small cancer rust spots over the entire car that haven't bleed through the metal entirely. I'm just parting it out now to recuperate my money to start a new project. Trying to find a donor car to put the blacktop 4age I have sitting in my garage now. Was thinking of trying to find a te72 corolla. Here is a pic right off the trailer.

A few days ago, I picked up a 1972 Corona. Has only 134k miles. Picked it up for $700 and it runs perfectly fine. I haven't decided what I want to do with this yet.

Anyway, I hope I enjoy my stay here on Japanese Nostalgic Car.

Man, if you were closer I would buy those bumpers. At least the front one. Rear won't fit my RA29. The corona looks like fun. Drop the 4AGE into it!! Sleeper baby!

Slap some vintage wheels on it, drop it, and call it a day. :)

I want it :D. I'm more of a sedan guy then a coupe guy, but the celicas are definately my favorite nostalgic toyota coupe. My list of favorite nostalgic sedans grows every day, and now I want a corona :(.

I'll let you know on Monday how much the shipping is (post office nearby is only open M-F)




Was messing around with the sideskirts from my RA21 project. They fit perfectly on the Corona. Anyone have any ideas on how to make or find a front lip to buy that would fit these side skirts?
