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.
