Name Calling Controversy, Toyopet Corona Van (PT47V) and Pickup (PT47P)
May 25, 2019
In this video a 1967 Corona pickup that I saw back in 2014, and a rusty 1968 Corona Van that I saw more recently. And, you know how people call the same car different things? Well, I finally spit the dummy on the topic having long arrived at the conclusion that we call it what it actually is.
The T40/T50 Series Corona was built from Sep 1964 to Jan 1970. This Corona van was built in 1968. It has a 1,345cc inline 4 engine.
