Unearthing a Classic Gem: 1976 Toyota Corona Coupe

This is a rare 2-door coupe made by Toyota, a Japanese automaker. The car was produced as a compact vehicle to rival the Datsun 510 made by Nissan Motors. It is a fifth-generation Toyota Corona built in 1976 and is still in its original condition. It runs and drives well and has only 108,000 miles on it. This car has great potential as a classic car to be restored.

The exterior of the car has a few dents and some rust, but it is remarkable considering its age. The interior is clean and neat, looking as if it has rarely been used. Unfortunately, there are no engine photos available for reference. This 1976 Toyota Corona hardtop coupe is seriously nice and rare and is being offered on Craigslist for $3000 in Everson.

According to the owner, this car is a very rare classic Toyota, as not many were imported, and the majority have been wrecked or scrapped long ago. This car is in amazing original shape for a 40-year-old import, especially for one that spent its entire life in the Pacific Northwest. The car has 108,000 original miles and an original 20r engine and w50 trans, with a new Weber 32/36 installed last year.

The car runs and drives great, but the engine needs to be resealed due to its old gaskets. Apart from the carburetor, exhaust, and front springs, the car is 100% original and 99% complete. The original parts that were removed are still available, except for some of the exhaust, if you wish to restore it to its original condition. Even the factory AM radio works!

There is some very minor rust and a few small dents, which are expected on an old car. The pictures of all the cosmetic body issues have been included. The rust at the base of the windows was bubbled under the paint, but the loose stuff has been scraped off and treated with rust reformer to prevent it from getting worse. The car will come with the original wheels; the mesh wheels are not included.

The owner loves this car, and it is painful to put it up for sale, but cash is needed. The price is $3000, firm. The owner is willing to consider possible trades, such as a nice 80-81 TE72 wagon, X3 Cressida wagon, or second amendment stuff from +cash.
