1973 Toyota Corona GT 2.0
Ahead of its time, pity about the masses
Initially head gasket problems due to high compression 18RG and small head bolts (12mm) which stripped out. Did top overhaul at 100,000 km with rings and bearings and put it all back together. Did a full Carburettor rebuild on the solex side drafts in 1995 at 240,000 km shafts and venturis.
Incredible high performance sports works sedan, years ahead of its time. I see rave reviews about the 1991 Toyota GT-R, but was driving the same performing car in 1975.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
