1970 Toyota CORONA Deluxe coupe RT52 Toyoglide Deluxe coupeThe engine is the stock 1.9L 4-cylinder and it runs very reliably. Easy to modify for more power if need be. I would leave the drivetrain as-is and concentrate on interior and exterior aesthetics. It is from out West, Nebraska, so the dust on it and in it have kept the body relatively dry. Rust on one lower quarter out back, but not the other side. The front has a dented fender, and rust at the bottom of the fender. You can see the factory red paintshowsthrough the hideous black spray can paint job it once had. This should tell you it is not full of bondo or major accidents. The front grill isdamaged, the front bumper, side marker light is falling out, and the chrome headlightsurroundmay need repair as well. We hit a tree on Saturday literally at 6 ft in a parking space as the brakes failed 100%. The bumper is bent...but we decided to leave the old images form the week before and the newest ones.
The transmission is the TOYOGLIDE automatic unit. Drive and talk on your phone without pretending you are so sporty and in need of a manual gearbox. Get in, turn the key, it fires to life. NO jacking with the choke.Smooth running, it just sits at a nice idle, revs up, and does NOT billow white or black smoke.
The tires are brand new and have not been down the road or anywhere. ($400.00 warranty in my name)
The car does sort of drive, as the brakes are not working. So a quick test drive with no brakes put the car into a big tree at low speed andsmashed thebumper. The before picture I will leave up. Now it has a bent front bumper. Core support is fine.We took it on a test drive using the hand brake. It failed quickly. The car had thetransmissionhousing off when I bought the car, assuming they removed it to take out the nasty carpet it had. Well, that shifter is vague. Trying to find reverse, it went in drive andsmackeda tree not 7 feet in front of it. Dead center. This literally happened Saturday, as you saw the car listed before with a good front bumper. The good news? Now it starts right up with a turn of the key, no more fiddling with starter wires under the hood.
We can still get it transported for you and beat most or any prices.That will be up to the owner to ship it, or solicit our services for auto transport.
INTERIOR: factory, rough, old stuff. It is dusty, has torn upholstery, no carpet, and the seats are barely bolted in since the carpet was removed and the floors cleaned up. The floors are factory and look clean! No pan replacement or patches, and it looks solid. The body has rust on trunk lid and a few other areas, but is by no means a rust bucket! Odd stuff, like one rear fender lip has rust on one side, not the other.
Dash iscracked, some lights work, some don't. The back seat was removed and things cleaned up behind it. The door cards are rotten and torn, but the windows do go up and down.
The car has been sitting for years. I would consider it a basket case needing complete restoration, or the minimal work, like brakes, to make it a driver. It does go into every gear and move under its own power.
When the engine is running, it leaks fuel at the metal line, we run it on anauxiliarytank since the gas tank is being treated with lacquer thinnerand stabil tocleanit out. We run a tiny plastic tank up front, and it gravity feeds to hear it run.
Ask questions, I'll answer. I work really hard to keep this perfect feedback after 12 years since ebay started. So work with me and I willworkwith you. I can't store it more than 15 days form auction end time. Look, this BS where you buy it and don't pay for it getting old. You guys knowexactlywhat you are doing, so really sit and figure out if this is what you want.
I do not have a title, as in the state of Georgia we use a Registration and a Bill of Sale, both are current of which I have in my hand. It will transfer to any state and you get a title. Look it up, goolge it, you can and will use the registration and Bill of Sale Georgia Form T7, submittted to your state = TITLE
Here is a video of it running with an auxiliary tank. Smooth engine for having been sitting for a while.
