Mark's RT81 Corona

Post by Mark90 on Tue Nov 13, 2012 6:13 am

Hey guys,

Thought I'd share my 1973 Corona SE with you all, I have had her for nearly 3 months now and is a work in progress.

She has 108xxx miles on her and is dead original, only modification is a CD player and chrome air filter assembly (still have the original - just looked daggy).

The car has small "AMI" badges on the lower front guards, AMI stands for Australian Motor Industries, which means the parts for the car were imported from Japan, and the car was assembled in Melbourne, Australia. It has a 12R 1.6L engine (same as the early Hilux's, Hi-aces and Landcruisers?) and the K40 4 speed gearbox, 6.7" Diff with 4 '1 Ratio. I have done a fair bit of work to get her tidied up.

Anyway... Here it is..

Thanks mate, I haven't really decided what direction to head in with it. I like the original look so I don't really have any urge to go for wheels and all that. Maybe a touch lower, tidy up a few things and just cruise! I scored a set of Mikuni bike carbs that I am considering throwing on. Theres another guy here in Aus that has done it, looks and sounds sweet!

Sorry man I've been flat out lately! Here's a link with his car and a few pictures of his setup, mine should hopefully run out similar, my carbs are a bit bigger than his though.

The car has been running pretty sweet lately, we are coming into summer and have had a few 39c degree days and she's shown no sign of over heating at all.

I have also been tidying up the engine bay a lot!

Thanks man, and thanks again for the stickers! I was going to paint the rocker cover and side plate silver but changed my mind at the last minute. Just ended up using a primer and then a clear coat over the top. I think it was a much better choice as it looks more original Smile The block has also been painted in a gloss black engine enamel.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] these guys do all kinds for Toyota engines, I deal with them a lot at work. I don't know much about the 18rc but they have manifolds for the 18rg and 18r, could always shoot them an email.. Pretty helpful there Smile

Hi mate,

Sorry I haven't been on here for a while! What parts of the engine do you need pictures of in particular? More than happy to take a few pics but would be good to know what areas to focus on for ya.

Cheers

Man that is in great condition! I agree with just lwoering it and leaving it original.

Are the blinds in the rear glass OEM? They are really cool.

Thank before for your kindness..

1. I need some picture of gas cable's route, start from the firewall until carburetor.. My car have a long cable, it makes my engine bay looks crowded.. I thing this cable has a wrong route..
2. I need a carburetor picture.. For make sure, is this an original carburetor or have been replaced..

3. I need pictures the part of handbrake system.. My handbrake is already gone since I buy that car, I have buy some parts and cables.. After installation by my own prediction, my handbrake didn't work.. The lever can't locked after I pull the lever.. I thing I miss some parts on it..

*I'm so sorry for my poor English

Thanks guys! The venetians may be OEM, not sure as there are a few companies here in Australia that still produce them Very Happy

Robby I'll get some photos for you this weekend when I get a day off, your carby looks slightly different to mine. I'll take a few close up pics and post them up.

In the mean time.. Here is a photo from a cruise back in December

Very clean! I was wondering if you had a link or info to the company that still produces the rear window blinds? I really like the look and it probably saves your backseat from that sun out there! Thanks ahead of time!
