VIN: RT5226342
Engine: 3R657783
- Wears a respray in a light teal/turquoise color. Color is just gorgeous, particularly against the grey Datsun Z wheels. One of the best car/wheel combos we've seen in a long time. There is evidence in the trunk and underside of the hood of a past paintjob in red. Teal paint shows very, very well. There are a number of small chips that have been touched up with color-matched paint, but they are only visible upon close inspection. Please take a look at the video that accompanies the listing, as it shows close-ups of every blemish
- There are a few light dings on the hood, which are PDR'able. There's another small ding at the passenger rear corner of the car
- There is a small bubble in the paint at the forward corner of the driver's door, as well as at the very bottom rear corner just behind the rear wheels
- Chrome is in great shape throughout
- Weatherstripping is in good shape
- Wheels are in great shape. Very minor chipping
- Tiny nick in the windshield
- Cooper tires are in great condition. At least 80% tread remaining, no dry rot or damage
- Seats are excellent. There's a 0.5” puncture on the driver's outer seat bottom. Rear seats show no wear
- Door panels are in great shape. No kicked-open markings
- Gauges are all functional
- Blower is functional, as are all lights, signals, and the windshield wiper
- Radio is not functional
- Driver's side rear window only rolls down halfway
- Headliner is nice and tight. A little dirty in the rear corners but in good shape
- Needs a dash pad. Currently just the metal dash top. Not cracked! Ha
- Odometer reads 64,670. We're unsure if accurate or not
Under the Hood / Underbody
- 3R-code 1.9L Straight 4. Engine number (3R657783) is correct for a '68 Corona, so it's likely original. 90 horsepower, 105 lb-ft
- Car is a blast to drive. Very nimble and maneuverable. By no means fast, but sounds great
- Runs very well. Starts right up, idles cool and steady, and accelerates through the gears with no hesitation. Automatic “Toyoglide” transmission shifts smoothly and the car tracks nice and straight. We currently have the car in for a brake service, as the pedal was pretty mushy when we took it out and filmed the video you see along with the listing. I will update the listing with further mechanical details once our mechanics have finished their comprehensive going-through and road test
Overall, this is a seriously cool, fun-to-drive car that can be had on a modest budget. For more information or to discuss purchasing, please reach out to Jake at Evolve Motors / Chicago Car Club at 773-267-2684
