Toyota Corona Mark II station wagon that I posted earlier this week. The Corona isn't a terribly valuable vehicle but it is rather rare in the US. This has an upside and a downside: rarity makes them interesting, but it also makes parts hard to find. The guy who owns the red Corona 4x4 trail rig basically has a hacked-up Toyota body on top of a truck chassis. The car probably reached the point where the body panels were too damaged to justify repairing and he just decided to have fun with it. Then there's this Corona Mark II, basically identical except one or two years newer. But my goodness, what a difference in terms of condition.
ToyotaReference.com says that Mark IIs were available in Pale Yellow up through '72, but this car looks more like Greenish Yellow. So who knows?
This Corona is one of the cleaner ones I've come across, and one of very few I've seen that wasn't white or red. It has about as much rust and body damage as one would expect to find on a daily driver Japanese car of the era, but still displays well on the street. I like that it has all of its stock hubcaps. For those of you who like a complete walkaround of the car, I apologize. I focused on the rear hatch badges and somehow forgot to snap a full rear shot of the car. I think you can figure out what it looks like. Or, go here.
