I'm losing parking soon! Best offer.

I know I'm going to regret this, but circumstances are forcing me to sell my '77 Toyota Corona. I'm losing parking mid-August, so I need to find this car a new home. I bought it a year ago because I had never seen a car like this before, and I've loved all the Toyota pickups I've had. Since then, I've:

-Swapped in a recently rebuilt 22r from an '87 pickup

-Installed a new Weber 32/36 carb
-Converted to GM style ignition control module
-Converted to GM style 1-wire alternator
-Replaced all tie rod ends and shocks in front end
-New tires on Celica GT rims, handles great!
-Quiet frankenstein exhaust

This car is from Texas, with tons of parking stickers and registration slips to prove it. It is probably the least rusty car I've ever owned. The undercoating is peeling off the underside, and the red primer is showing through in a couple parts of the paint, but it has VERY little rust. It has it's fair share of dents and dings, but was used as a daily driver until around 2000 (last TX registration). The paint is still very shiny, and it's a great 15 footer, for sure.

The interior is rough, sadly. The dash pad is destroyed from the Texas sun, the door cards are rough and falling apart, the carpet is stained, and the headliner is made of tack paper and is in desperate need of replacement. However, the seats are in fair shape, but are very uncomfortable. I've got a pair of Celica GT seats from the same car the wheels came from that are included in the sale. I stuck a cheap CD player in the car for tunes, and bought a nice new set of Kenwood 6" speakers, which are installed in the rear parcel tray. Works fine.

The odometer reads just over 100 miles, so I would guess the car to have just over 200k. It is a rare factory 5-speed, clutch is fine, shifts great.

When I got the car, it came with many boxes of spare parts, and I've only added to the collection. Included are:
-Brand new soft brake lines, all four corners
-New rear brake shoes
-NOS TEQ brake pads for the front
-New sway bar links
-New Spark plug wires, spark plugs
-New water pump
-stock 22r carb
-stock alternato

Car is located in Madison, Wisconsin, 53703
-tons and tons of misc extra/replacement partso
