Had to get some more images posted.
Had a sun break today here in Seattle, rare this time of year so rolled the "rolla" out for some shots

Awesome original interior, cracked dash soon to be replaced.

Super clean body with all the trim in minty condition.

Hood trim is off being painted gray like the original. Car had been repainted in 1993 and the trim was painted red. Didn't look right.

The 2tc hemi with out the card, Having it rebuilt. Years of sitting made it grumpy until it warmed up.

Nice tail shot.

A great new addition to the family

A wonderful beginning for a 1972 Corolla Coupé 1600.

Thanks to John at Doyles Automotive in West Seattle for knowing... and feeding.... my addiction to my vast collection of vintage toyotas and j-tin.

Linda, whos' wonderful parents purchased this car NEW for her when she was going to college in Portland OR, many years ago, decided after nearly 40 years to sell her beloved and cherished Corolla.

I was in the right place at the right time to be able to further the love affair of these wonderful cars to preserve this beauty for many years to come. Thank you Linda for trusting in John and thanks to John for knowing a person that would buy ANY vintage j-tin!!!
