72 mk2 mx22 2dr from Cali

Post by Redrumls on Mon Dec 05, 2016 2:27 am

I'm a new owner from coarsegold California & I just stumbled on a 72 mk2 mx22 2 dr ht sitting in a field in the mountains not too far from where I live by accident. I was on the hunt for a 75 Datsun 610(which is very similar to a corona) that turned out to be a complete basket case. Then that's was when I was shown the Toyota corona mk2 mx22.
I was stoked being able to recue such a jewl that has been sitting since 1980. It needs a few parts that might be difficult but not impossible to locate. I'm going to try & get some pics up.

I need some parts, rear windshield, quarter driverside window, hood(I've think I located) & an eyebrow mounding for the drivers side headlights. Any info or lead would be appreciated.
Thanks, Greg

Thats awesome to see more coronas getting restored and back on the road.

as far as the forum its hard to keep people to continue contributing, I am actually looking for help with the forum; for a while I was giving away decals and putting a lot of effort to get the forum running.

parts are hard to come by, it is sometimes easier to buy a parts car. Australia has a lot of cars check out fb page "rt80 rt81 toyota corona owners"

I found someone who has all the parts I need, getting the money together so I can take a ride to go get them. I really want to get the mx22 back on the road, the car has sick lines & imo is a good looking car! Plus I like to drive something that is a little rare. Wink if you need help with the forum pm me & let me know how I can help.

I definitely love the body styling of the coronas and early Toyota's. interesting history behind it, early Toyota's/toyopet were made to resemble muscle cars but would have better mpg and easy maintenance. Since they were introduced after the world war II the Japanese market took a dump Toyota introduced the toyopet line to export to the US. Ill definitely pm you

Has my local locksmith make me a key from my pass side door lock & finally opened my trunk! I found some things in their that I wasn't expecting... my missing eyebrow mounding for the drivers side, a head, valve cover, intake, radiator shroud & some misc. parts. Cars is a little rough from sitting but pretty straight & minimal rust. Going to get busy on it soon when weather allows.

Well I scored the nearly impossible, the back windshield, hood & 1/4 window for my mx22. Oricles hooked me up! He has all the parts I needed & some extra.

Starting to look a better little by little. Getting ready to move it close to my small shop so I can get busy on it.
I'll start a build thread when I get going on it, can't wait:) I have a few projects going on at the same time so progress is slower than I would like.

Where rust is bad is on the trunk.. rest of the car is solid. If I can't find one I'll have to re-skin it. Wink

Give it a few months, you probably won't recognize the car.. I'm working on four cars at the same time so progress is not as fast as I'd like but I'm prioritizing..

I can't wait till the day I can drive the car on its own power! I love bringing classic cars back to life! Just got a 510 wagon back on the road and it is my DD. Now it's the mx22 corona & a 73 rx3 goon that are next. I also have a 64 nova ss that going through a complete restoration. I've had several motors in it, now it's time for the ls3, DSE subframe, mini tub. I have everything, just need more time.... lol. I have four cars going on at the same time... time to prioritize! So progress is slow but it's going..

I've had the 64 nova ss for close to 25yrs, the 68 camaro for about 14yrs, 65 chevelle conv. for 8yrs.
The 510 goon about 7 months & the mx22 & rx3 wagon close to 5 months. I picked up the corona & rx3 in the same place. I've had a lot of classic cars... this is what I have left that I want to keep. I have a few people that have been persistently after the rx3 goon, almost sold it but still hanging onto it.
