My 'new' 1981 Corona Wagon

Post by Etohboy on Tue Sep 04, 2012 10:27 am

I just picked up this little wagon on Sunday. I've owned several Celicas in the past ('78 GT and 85 GT), but I couldn't pass up this rare car (especially at $225!!). She sat for about 2 years, so she needed a little work, but the body and interior are in good shape. The 22R has 150K and looks in good shape. I had to drop the gas tank and am in the process of cleaning in out, but I'm hopeful to have her on the road this week. Looking forward to finding some good wheels (Supra MK2's would be fantastic!). Here are some pics, let me know what you think. Thanks!

Not sure what I'm going to do with it just yet. I have two other cars (96 Legacy Sedan and 72 Olds Cutlass S--my high school car) and my wife would kill me if I said I wanted to keep it, but...might just fall in love with her after I get her road worthy and find the right wheels.

Post by Etohboy on Mon Sep 10, 2012 9:43 am

After removing the gas tank and cleaing it out, removing the carb and cleaning it up, and putting on a new starter she finally came to life. I still need to fine tune the carb, but the car seems to run stong. Here are some more pics. In the market for some Supra/GTS Wheels now. Thanks for looking!

I pulled the carb, removed some small things (like the accelerator pump and some vacuum fittings) and put the whole thing in parts dip for a day. Then I cleaned it out with carb cleaner and slapped it back on. I'm having trouble with the accelerator pump right now, but I think I just need to pop it off and spray it out again. I'll probably do a carb kit down the road. Thanks!

I'll keep you in mind. I'm in Montana, so it would be a little hike! I'm hoping it grows on her (plus I might try to convince her to keep it for my son--5 more years till he can drive..).

Highwind,

I'm out of state right now, but I can take pics of the bumper and send them to you, if you're interested. The supports are in OK condition, but the rest is very rusted and there is white paint on the top. Let me know and I'll get them to you ASAP. Thanks!

Here's a little update. My buddy rebuilt the carburetor and it runs great now!! I got the blower motor working, the rear defrost and the dome light (just baby steps). The big news is the Supra wheels. I got the Saturday and spent 3 hours Sunday cleaning them up. Turned out great! Also I painted the rear brake drums black to get ready for the new wheels. I’m hoping to get tires put on today or tomorrow. Here are some more pics:

The wheels were covered in brake dust and road grime when I started (looked pretty crappy). I started with steel wool and soap and water. It worked ok, but was VERY labor intensive. I decided to try some wheel cleaner so I ran to the parts store and picked up some of this:

I wasn't really expecting much, but it worked great! The label said just to spray it on, let it soak for a few minutes and spray it off. I decided to rub it in after it sat for 2 minutes and the grime just rubbed away. It took two applications, but was well worth it.
