Abandoned Classic: 1971 Toyota Corona Mark II W-Pickup

November 01, 2012

Funny how foreign words/concepts enter a culture and get changed. The W, I believe stands for, Double.

The T60/T70 Series Mark-II was built from Jan 1968 to 1973. This Mark-II Pickup was built in 1971. It has a 1,490cc 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>
