The Feels When: 1983 Toyota Corona GT-T 2-door Hardtop Turbo
November 23, 2016
UNICORN! Man, did this rare two-door Corona take some tracking down! I've known about the existence of this car for quite some time, and I can't tell you how happy I am that the first one I got to see was this showroom-floor fresh. Engine is a 3T-GTEU, so is sub 1800 cc, but packs a turbo.
This Corona hardtop was built in 1983. It has a 1,770cc inline 4 engine.
I've set myself an ambitious target, and that is to unearth all of Japan's rusting, nostalgic gems. It's not going to be easy. They're shy creatures and prefer to remain hidden. And, limited time and funds mean they're likely to stay that way, which would be not cool! <More>
