  1. Hey peeps, About 6 years after selling "Lil Blu" my 18RG swapped 1966 RT40 Shovelnose Corona in the Gold Coast (waayyyy to cheap), and moving back to NZ - and long after giving up on ever having another one. I found this little gem for sale on FB marketplace. A 1967 (seems more like a '66 to me, but that's how it's tagged) Toyota Corona RT40 for $2k. This thing has been stripped back, and a fair bit of work has been started prepping it for paint. Unlike my previous one, the body on this thing is pretty straight - no rust in the doors, guards have already been patched (properly) and there's just a couple of holes in the floor both driver and passenger side. The best part about this, is that it's 3 on the tree - no 2 speed "toyoglide" sloshbox, so the boat mooring will remain in place under the bonnet. The rego has lapsed, but it's still got the plates, and still on Carjam - so hoping not too much fuss. Rough plan is: find a bonnet (more on this later), weld up rust holes (floor, under battery, front of drivers sill where guard bolts on), tidy up underneath (check brake lines etc), paint (myself - why not? If Spank Diddy can do it...), new seals all round, upholstery (it's properly stuffed), put it back together and re-vin - then creep around the place - low & slowwww. Will hiff some more photo's off my phone shortly - see the little beast loaded up on a trailer & pic of lil blu for nostalgia - I've well and truly caught the corona virus again Chur discuss:
