That thing is rare! Good luck finding parts and please don't hack it up. She is one nice lookin' lil wagon with so much potential, keep us updated!


Yeah, the parts are scarce but I've managed to find what I've needed, though. Good thing for me that it was "complete" when I found it.
My plans are to do as much as I can WITHOUT hacking it up. I'll go as far as I can, though.

**Plans: drop/wheels/paint/interior/tunes - and a bit extra HP - whatever I can get to fit :wink:.

Thanks drive-by,
It's got a few minor issues but it's still in good nick, considering. Won't take much sorting out, just gotta get to it. It'll be back on the road again soon - doing minor tune-up stuff and waiting for the new fuel pump, should be here any day now. I have to drive it for a while to get it out of my system before doing the full resto with mods :D .

I have been eyeballin one of those are my town. I found it a year ago. I think that it is actually a driver as it had a current tag the last time I saw it. Just picked up a cressida wagon myself. Good luck with yours!

Stay on it because mine was registered while it was parked for about 3 years! They finally got tired of spending the money because nobody was driving it.

Finally got it on the ground, for good. All new joints, bushings & front inserts.
FRONT: 4 inch drop (d.i.y. e-Bay coil-over sleeves)
REAR: 2.5 inch drop (blocks)

Before:

After:

Still adjusting, but this is how it sits, for now.

Enjoy.

Looking good.

It's been a while since I commented on this, I currently have 3 wagons my 75, a 76 and just picked up a 77.
The 76 and 77 will become 1.
It's time to put all those bits I've been collecting into something, lowering is something I'm going to have to do with this next project, is that just lowering blocks in the rear?
