    well i sold my cressida a few weeks back as it gets dirty 10 minutes after i wash it, so i went looking for some cars and this corona sedan about an hour from my house, looked very mint so i gave the bloke a call and said yeah come see it. made the journey out the and was a piece of shit, it had dents, scratches and rust he must of taken the photos of when he just got it as it didn't look like the same car in the add. after driving away and not even telling the seller we were there cause it was that bad i quickly jumped on gumtree and saw this corona wagon. looked clean low K's tiny bit of rust and 5 spd! rang the bloke up and was there in 5 minutes took it for a test drive and bought it. this was the 3rd time driving manual and it was a struggle but i got it home with only stalling it once!

    specs:

    motor:
    2sc 2ltr
    5spd

    susp:
    stock front
    mx73 springs in rear
    polyurethane rear bushes

    will get some more pics later phones being a POS.

    plans are to keep it clean and make the interior look a bit nicer as some bits on the dash have been broken and it looks like crap. i really want some of those wide steelies 15 x 8 with 0 offset but they have sold out and not getting anymore but they do have a set of 16 x 8's reckon 16" will suit the corona as they have pretty big guards. i think ill keep the rear the same height with the mx73 springs but i might test my falcon springs to see if it stiffens it up, anyone got or know of springs that fit in the front of coronas cause i don't know if i want to cut them yet?

    fender mirrors? i have a set but dont know if they suit a wagon try to conveince me guys i want to use them lol

    Wheels are kewl, polish them! And get 175/65R14
    For the rear use falcon springs, they are perfect. Shocks from a suzuki Sierra or Toyota hilux are perfect for these also.
    For front just buy kings or something, pretty hard to get a cut spring to sit correct in the front. Falcon can work though.

    yeh i polished one and came out sweet but took a fair while, ive got falcon king springs from my 70 and suzuki shocks so i might put the falcons in the front if they work? or just buy another set of stock springs and cut them!

    also on the wheels there is only a tiny bit of thread sticking out and the nut will only tighten like 3- 4 turns, might have to either drill the holes out abit or just get the rear bit machined so more stud is there suggestions?
