Rare & Mythical Beast: 1970 Toyota Corona Mark II 1900 GSS - RT75

December 13, 2015

Today's car is the first and only first-generation Mark II GSS I have ever seen. It's slightly larger than the early, shovel nose Corona hardtops, and features the 1858cc 10R DOHC engine.

The T60/T70 Series Mark-II was built from Jan 1968 to 1973. This Mark-II Hardtop was built in 1970. It has a 1,858cc inline 4 engine.
