Kidney, Anyone? 1972 Toyota Corona Mark II

1972 toyota corona mark II rt73l 01This baby blue beaut of a Toyota Corona Mark II is the mintiest we’ve ever spotted. The odometer reads 16,041 miles and the condition seems to corroborate that story. The door jambs could be licked. The trunk mat is as flat as Kansas. According to the seller, everything works, every square millimeter of paint is original, and it has never seen snow or salt.

The Corona Mark II was a more luxurious, slightly stretched version of the more common RT40 barikan Corona. It’s still powered by a four-cylinder 18R-C, but it eventually became its own model a few generations later, when the “Corona” was dropped and it simply became the “Mark II.” It’s the Cressida’s great-granddaddy.

Interestingly, the auction description says it’s part of a Youngstown, Ohio collection being trimmed, which begs the question: what’s in the rest of the collection?

More delicious photos after the jump.

    Hi guys,

    I understand the engine in the corona of the picture is a 18R-G?
    Well hate to say it but looks like a 18R to me.

    @Zechs: On the ebay acution page there is a photograph with the engine identifying itself as an 18R-C. 😉
    I would still like to sell my kidney for this one though. 😀

    There’s an older man that works down the street from me that has one of these. He drives it everyday to work, too. Told me when he got his divorce, the main items were the Corona MKII and the house. He got an apartment. Lolol.

    Who owns these cars and keeps them in such condition? I can understand an expensive car being maintained to this standard, but an economy car is amazing.

    This thing is beutiful! But i’m kinda wondering how this body style would look with the front end off of a 74 markII SSS. It’s still has the quad headlights but without the wierd angles and a sportier look. Maybe I’m just speaking blasphemy or something! Please don’t throw bricks through my window!!
