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.

How does winning stuff sound?

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>
