This is my all stock RX12 Corona Mark II.
It´s a European model and comes with the 18r 89hp engine. It was bought in 1975 in France and imported to Portugal in 1981. I got it last year and fully restored it to it's original specifications since my father used to have one also imported but from South Africa.
Hope you like it!

That is one beautiful car you have there... I love it.

How hard is it to get a driver side mirror?
Can you help to locate one for me?


Thanks

Thanks,

Oracles:
It´s easy to get both side mirrors on Ebay but if I could go back in time I would only put the drivers side mirror because the other one simply doesn´t work.

About the color:
I will see it and let you know.

About the restoration process:
I have tons of photos but I just need time to put them all online.

Some special details:

Those photos are awesome, and I'm not just saying that because of the eye candy. :) They have that fuzzy "retro" look, a great effect!

Hope to post some photos of the interior soon. About my father's rx12, well, I have to go back in time and try to find some old photos.

About the color code, it´s a Toyota color "Orange 393" with some special magic: The car was first painted plain orange before the final coat.

About the girl it's simple, Portuguese girls just love old Jap's!:wink: Well... it turns out that a photographer asked me if he could use the car for a photo session and I got the photo's from he's blog.
