RARE: A Sleek 'n' Silky, 1989 Toyota Corona Coupe - ST162

March 16, 2013

I've since found out that this car is quite special. Just 400 of these "Black Version" Toyota Corona Coupes were built and sold in early 1989.

The T160 Series Corona was built from Aug 1985 to Sep 1989. This Corona Coupe was built in 1989. It has a 1,998cc inline 4 engine.
