Spotted: A 1976 Toyota Corona 2000 GT - RARE Hardtop version - 18R-GU

September 15, 2012

The T100 series Coronas were everywhere in Australia, I'd never seen one with a hardtop body though. Now that I come to think of it, I wasn't aware that there were GTs either.

The T100/T110/T120 Series Corona was built from Aug 1973 to May 1979. This Corona Hardtop was built in 1976. It has a 1,995cc 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>
