This is a nice 1979 Toyota Corona with 18,799 original miles. There has been one owner since new who was from Virginia, and we have the original title that was issued to him on July 1, 1979. We haven’t had one of these cars in a long time, and although it isn't a show car, but this Corona is an everyday usable driver.

** The owner was a older gentleman who passed away of Leukemia in August of 2018. His family then decided to donate this car to the Leukemia Research Foundation. We handle many vehicles for non-profit and charitable organizations. We sell most of them to dealerships and through dealer networks, but we also offer some of the unusual vehicles to the public on ebay. The sale of these vehicles is for the benefit of the charity organizations to whom it was donated.

I don't think we ever had a Corona before, but we completed a basic check out and I drove this Toyota around for some errands. I’ll tell you everything we know about it: The four-cylinder 20R engine starts easily and runs well and the transmission shifts nicely. The whole driveline feels good without any issues or problems. The owner installed a complete set of Michelin tires, which are showing most of their tread. The brake pads are in great shape as well. The oil & filters were replaced last week and this Corona is ready to be driven today.

The photos of this Corona are just the way we received it, with only a wash and vacuum. The black paint is okay for a daily driver, but has numerous scratches and blemishes as expected of a 40 year old car. There are also some rust spots on the bottom of the rear quarter panels although the body and the undercarriage are quite solid. The interior is also in nice general condition. There are the usual surface cracks on the dash pad and plastic trim and some material deterioration on the sides of the seats. The carpeting is clean without any holes or damage. This has been a non-smoker owned vehicle, and there aren’t any interior odors or burn marks.

There isn't any accident history, and we have the original title which is clean and clear. This a solid classic car with exceptionally low mileage that runs great. This Corona could be a daily driver, or an easy restoration if desired.
