my first car was a very beige 1969 Toyota Corona sedanand I now owna heavily customized lowrider 1969 Toyota Corona coupe, I’m always on the lookout forCoronas in junkyards. Just prior to a California trip I took a week ago, I received aRow52notification about a 1974 Corona at an East Bay self-service yard.
Here’s what I found.
fifth-generation Coronaowner had been waiting for just such a parts bonanza to show up in a local U-Wrench yard, and this person yanked much of the good stuff from this RT118 wagon before I got there. I’ve donethe same thing to a junkyard ’41 Plymouth, so I know the glory of such a discovery.
Toyota War fame.
this ’66 sedan,this ’68 sedan,this ’70 sedan,this ’70 coupe,this ’79 sedan,this ’80 sedan,this ’81 wagon,this’81 wagon, andthis ’82 sedan. Since I hadn’t found a Corona from the middle 1970s until now, this is an especially satisfyingJunkyard Find.
