Good Vibrations: 1979 Toyota Corona (TT131) - Wide Body / Engine Swap
November 02, 2016
I had such an excellent day at Autopolis on the weekend. There were nostalgics screaming down the straight, and there were plenty of amazing cars to see in the pit and paddock; this Corona being one of the stand-outs.
The T130 Series Corona was built from Sep 1978 to Apr 1983. This Corona sedan was built in 1979. It has a 2,000cc inline 4 engine.
