This is my Uncle's 74 corolla. He bought it himself and drove it as a daily runner. Sadly he died in 1976 at the age of 43. My father kept quiet about custody of the car waiting for the things to get favourable. Finally, we got it as per free will of the curent users in the family.

We Receovered the car from Faisalabad which is around 300 kms from Islamabad. We were fully prepared for a tow but car was able to complete 95% of the journey on its own travelling at 50-65 kmph.

After restoration, It was presented it as a borthday gift to my father on his 65th birthday. That was an emotional moment for sure.


This is how i started off. Parked in faisalabad collecting dust and rust.
