Love this corona body style. I was trying to pickup a mint wagon near me, but the guy wanted too much for it. I have a plan for one in the future though. Very nice looking car!!! Cant wait to see it with matching wheels.

Could be a difference in production dates early to late my year??
Plans right now is to fix the infamous Weber Throttle shaft leak with the bearing kit,Do the brakes(SS lines Cross drilled rotors and Calipers) 22r Alum Radiator.
I would like to get the Skyline style wing for it, tint the windows rear sway bar exhausrt and header oil cooler and 2 m,ore wheel sand flares and drive it, I have been toying with the idea of air shocking it as I have plenty of air ride stuff as me and my little bro own a shop

Are you sure yours is a 78? lol

Because, I had a 75 that looked exactly like yours. I know because that hood design annoyed me. :)

3tcbob,

Had to mold the flare in with the body. Hopefully after the holidys all the body work will be done and painted primer black for the silver color.

Very nice! I like what you did with the headlights ALOT!

what route did you go with lowering the rear? leaf removal or blocks?
and how is the ride compared to stock?

Rob, what steps did you take to install your fender mirrors? Did you have to remove the fender? I'm searching for a style of fender mirror that would look good on my car. :)

Very nice Coronas! I used to own an '81 back in the Philippines that was lightly modded. I'd love to get one as a project car.

Yeah I had to take the fender off cause there is a piece of metal in there that sticks out some and was hitting the mounting bolts
