UPDATE: In process of a 22re swap. Engine bay will be painted factory blue. Flat clear over patina for the body.

Free car. only gonna spend a few hundred bucks to get it on the road. will be slammed when i find some 15" steelies to throw on it. fixing floor rust soon and hopefully wont take much to get it running.

After its first bath in over 20 years and some black on the wheels so it wouldnt look like a complete pile while i work on it.

yea i could prob run bags pretty easily with some minor fabrication. But the control system and compressor are more expensive than dirt cheap so yea. lol. I need to get a set of those '85 and up cressida spares to make it truly ballin' first tho.

I found a set of these at the local pull-a-part. They are 14" on a cressida wagon. I dunno how they will look and am looking for some feedback before i go buy them.

Hmm fwd wheels are always a little lame looking imo, regardless of the face design. Maybe something with a little more offset and lip? Some slot mags might be found for cheap and have the right era style??

Yea that would be legit if i could find a set for under $100. with or without tires.

FWD wheels?? Those rims are RWD, bro... they were a factory option from Toyota in the 80's and used on the AE86 Corolla, the Toyota van, as well as the Cressida. 8)

I was wondering if anyone knew if there are any brake calipers, rotors, booster/master cylinder, clutch master cylinder or any other parts of that sort from dif cars that will swap over to my 70 corona wagon with little or no mods. Im about to head to the pull-a-part and i figure i will need these parts before i put this beast on the road. it has front disks and rear drums. thanks

What is wrong with the original parts? Anything from a newer car will not bolt on so it will be a hassle to modify. If you chance one thing, you will have to consider the whole system and make sure what you chage will work.

You do know that the front calipers (or similar ones) were also on the 240Z for a reason right? They work fine when rebuilt correctly.

My MK2 worked fine with the OE system rebuilt.

No I didnt know that. I only know stuff about VW's, newer hondas, and old american stuffs. I got this car for free, its been sitting for 20 years and I dont expect the braking system to function properly. I have nothing against original parts at all, I just have no money to buy new replacements and if I could find stuff that would work in a junk yard for cheap it would be awesome. Can I get rebuild kits from a local auto parts store for these things?

Been a while since an update. I wasnt able to come home and work on it because of final exams. But anyways I seam sealed the welded-in patches, cleaned up the interior a bit, put it back in, siliconed the cracked-to-hell windowseal, found another leak around the hatch and am in the process of fixing that with a lot of cleaning, POR and silicone. heres some pics. more soon.

The reason it leaked in the rear. POR'd and gonna fix the seal tomorrow.
