Roller Skate: 1974 Toyota Corona Coupe RT114

The fifth generation Toyota Corona (T100/110/120) was built from 1973 through 1979 and solidified Toyota's reputation for making reliable sedans.  However, Toyota made a 2-door hardtop coupe version of the little econobox that was the crown jewel of the lineup.  Find this 1974 Toyota Corona Coupe RT114 offered for $3,000 in Long Beach, CA via craigslist.


I'm usuaully the last guy on the blogosphere to recommend cars that are offered sans engine/transmission/warp-drive, but this car has a good looking body, clean chrome, nice wheels and is only missing a few trim pieces before it would look great.  And it has OG Cali blue plates.  Source a modern VVTi 4-banger from some late model Toyota and go to town.
