1979 Toyota CorollaHi, efore you ask me, ES, he house that it is behind (1st picture) it's the house from Breaking Bad (where Jesse and Jane lived).
I am selling my daily drive Toyota Corolla TE38 Wagon. Clean TITLE under my name!It has the Toyota's workhorse 2TC and 5 speed transmission (T50). It is Rear Wheel Drive, hich it makes a great candidate for Drifting projects! It is very light, t weights less than 1900 pounds!
People leave notes on the window asking if I sell it, ut since it is my daily drive I say "no". Believe it or not, t is a "head turner". Always the car next to me has somebody staring or pointing to my red wagon. People always ask me about what year it is and they have crazy stories about when they were younger and they used to have the same Corolla, nd how it lasted for ever,etc,etc...One of the reasons why I am selling it, s because I have another car (Datsun 280Z) ready to drive and I don't have space for both. I am very afraid of this wagon getting stolen, o I rather sell it.
I drive it every single day on the Freeway at 70-75mph. It starts right up even at 12 degrees! It never left me walking, ell it's a Toyota, hey run forever. I do around 25 miles (sometimes more) 7 days a week. It has AC but it isn't working. The heater works great, he blower motor works like new. I realized that the carpet is a little bit wet on the heater area, o that means it leaks a little bit.All the doors lock and open without problems,but they don't open with the keys, o I always leave one door unlocked to get in.All the windows roll up and down, ut the drivers window is a little bit harder than the other ones. All the dash lights, eadlights, ide markers, top and tail lights work. Speedometer,parking brake, il, nd battery light are in perfect working condition.
Parts that I installed two months ago: Spark plugs, ires, ap and rotor, alve cover gasket, eals, way bar link, ear shocks, ront bearings and seals, rake pads, nstalled fog lights, ew transmission fluid (Royal Purple!), ilters, ight bulbs, nd painted the hood with black plasti dip to give a "retro" JDM race look.
Parts that I have BRAND NEW in the box and I will give to the next owner (or install if I don't sell the car in one week) :Brand new front shocks (lifetime warranty), ater pump and gasket, elt, emperature sensor, lutch kit, hermostat, ifferential carrier bearing, ransmission mount, rake shoes, ontrol arm bushings, all joints, rake master cylinder, lutch slave and master cylinder, lutch hose, ifferential gasket, ifferential bearing, ontact points, itman arm, teering gear seal... ( I'm probably forgetting some other stuff).
The car drives good, ut I recommend all the suspension parts installed for a better drive. I work in two jobs 6 days a week and I don't have time to do it. (plus I have my Datsun project car).
The only bad things are the rust spot on the drivers floor (it's $100 fix at my local body shop), wo small stops on the side fenders (see the last pictures, heupholstery (I was planning to swap some newer seats) and the rear tailgate bracket (drivers side) that It is missing and the tailgate needs like 7 attempts to close ( that's why it looks kind of "OFF").The steering wheel has a some "loose game" which is typical of any 40 year old car. It is pretty much rust free, ince here in New Mexico they don't salt the roads.Odometer reads "11,500" and I am guessing it is "111,500" miles.
I was planing to use this car in "Better Call Saul" TV sho, ut I rather sell it and maybe try use my Datsun.
I will do my best to answer all the questions and provide the best information. Buyer pays for Shipping. Please, am selling with no returns, o ask all the questions you want. This is not a brand new car, o don't expect the silent driving of a Prius! It is almost 40 years old.
Thank you for watching.
