1974 Toyota Corona Wagon

Post by fin59shaw on Wed Jan 02, 2013 4:13 pm

Hello, I'm brand new to this forum, and haven't really done many postings anywhere else. I found a really nice '74 Corona wagon this Spring, it had been sitting under a carport since 1988. 55k miles, and really solid. I've been replacing all the belts, hoses, water pump, fuel pump, brake master cylinder, wheel cylinders, clutch master & slave cylinder, and brake hoses. It should turn into a good car, it really purrs.
The Corona has a tan interior, and I'm thinking about paining the exterior in Atomic Orange (a Corvette color, really kind of bronze-ish). I am interested in seeing what kind of parts or upgrades that other people are doing. I got a new radio for it, but I think I'm going to have to do some cutting to the dash to get it in. Anyone have an easy solution for that?
Rusty

Welcome Rusty!

Cant wait to see this gem. 74's are really nice, but just for curiosity sake whats the chassis rt#?

So for photos, you need to find a photo hosting site ( [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] is what I use). Then you can use the img code and place then inbetween > [.img][./img] . minus the periods of course.

I finally got the Corona on the road, mostly.  There are still some bugs to work out, mostly fuel related.  It was sitting for 30 years, so I had to take the tank out and clean it, but it still has some crud from the fuel lines causing problems.
But it is on the road on a partial basis.  Put some new Michelins on it today.  The old tires still had all the tread, but they started separating because of the dry rot.
The last oil change had been in 1986, and only 50 miles ago, that's how long it had been sitting.  It is starting to take shape, and it will be fun to drive.
I'm trying to add a photo, hopefully it will work.

Sorry it took so long to get back to Lope70Mark2. If you are still around, the Chassis Code is RT118, but I have no idea what that means. Thanks for steering me towards Photobucket, I don't know what else I would use it for, but it got my photo uploaded.

Just put in a sunroof and power locks! The sunroof went good, just chopped a big hole in the roof and stuck it in. I had a professional put in the headliner, and it looks nice. The power locks wasn't a big deal either, except that it didn't have any holes for the wires.
