Detailing Disease: 1967 Toyota Corona Deluxe – SOLD!

by | May 2021 | Craigslist ClassiFINDS, Free For All Friday

May 20, 2021 Update – we confirmed the seller of this rare Toyota Corona “Classifind” deleted their listing, so we’re now able to call this one “SOLD!” While this one got away, please reach out either by email or call Rudy directly if you’d like to be informed when we come across something similar.

Some consider detailing a car for Concours events a disease. Others, including myself, find it to be one of the few truly relaxing diversions that is a great way to get away from sitting behind a computer.  As an avid clean-car aficionado, I’m always attracted to superbly detailed examples no matter how otherwise mundane a car might be.  This juxtaposition is on full display with this Concours-Ready 1967 Toyota Corona 1900 Toyoglide-equipped sedan originally listed in May 2021 on Craigslist in Newburgh, New York for $9,850. currently. Comparing that price against the Collector Car Market Review Online Tool confirms the seller’s ask falls between this guide’s #2 “Very Good” estimate of $6,800 and its #1 “Excellent” appraisal of $11,000.

Toyota launched the third generation of the Corona line in September 1964. It was available as either a sedan, two-door hardtop, or five-door station wagon in the U.S.  The 1965 model marked a return of Toyota to the American market after withdrawing there temporarily in 1961.  The Toyota automatic transmission, marketed as Toyoglide, was introduced on this version of the Corona.

If you can’t drive a manual, don’t have a lot of garage space, and want a restored classic car on a budget, this Toyota Corona will be a great conversation piece at every show you drive it to.

Here’s the seller’s description:

“Here we have my Toyota Corona 1900 this vehicle is in excellent condition SUPER SUPER CLEAN photos would show you that I have invested a lot of money to it so my loss is your gain many new parts replaced the entire interior was done less than two years ago including the trunk I restore must of the car my self including new carburetor, water pump, hoses, fuel lines, and others parts you would see that I still have many new parts in bins that didn’t get to replace they would all go including a brand new muffler again I did replace so many things that I forgot and the list would be too long if you need more info contact me. please see all the photos with details.
BTW yes everything works on the car including the radio and the car was kept in my garage in the wintertime at 65º. I have many more photos if you need to see them.I’m getting myself into another project and I can only have one TOY 🙁 I am really sorry to let it go.
