Today, I was drinking coffee at the ass-crack of dawn, and was searching CL for JNC's like I do every morning, when I stumbled upon an ad for a 75 corolla deluxe, no description of the body style, tranny, etc, no photo, Well he had said he might entertain a datsun trade, and I had a 79 210 wagon i've been restoring slowly, so I shot him a text with a photo.
much to my surprise, he got back to me only a few moments later and said he loved the car and wanted a description, so I emailed him a paragraph or three about the datsun, and within moments, he had invited me to come check out the car.
at this point i had no idea what body style or shape this corolla was in, but i was certainly going to go check it out (i didn't ask him too many questions, i guess i wanted to be surprised) when i arrived, he couldn't have been more happy with my datsun, and I couldn't have been more happy with the BEAUTIFUL 2 door te31 that sat in front of my eyes, with it's original AM radio, floor mats, dealership receipt, 70's aftermarket wiper delay, not a dent on the car, or a scratch bigger then a finger width on the whole car. not a scratch on the glass, and every seal looks brand new. the locks turned like butter, and i gladly exchanged titles and drove this car home, in a state of complete and utter shock. I'll shoot some photos tomorrow.
I'm so stoked! I have an 82 starlet kp61 that i'm planning on building for the track (previous owner stripped interior, no heater, built engine and jdm wheels, flares), but now i have a beautiful stock cruiser to roll on. probably lower it on coilovers in the front, drop it a little in the back, throw some extra meshies i have on it, and drive her FOREVER.
