1981 Toyota Corona XT130 1.9L 4 cylinder 'Starfire' petrol from Australia and New Zealand
It's a bloody beautiful little car!
When I bought the car it had a stripped cog, the distributor cap and rotor button needed replacing.
The rear seats have torn badly and the cloth seats, the material is very weak, but seat covers would cover it up.
The car is very good for its age compared to cars made in its year area.
The Corona is a very reliable and excellent car for its era and it is very attractive little car.
The small and skinny size is good and bad. Its squishy and not very roomy for the rear passengers, but its easy to manoeuvre.
I think it's a good car for young people who like older cars. I myself have done my Corona up and it is easy to pull apart and put back together.
I think that anyone looking for a cheap, reliable car should look into a Corona because it won't disappoint you. Mine hasn't :)
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
