Default My II Generation Toyota Corolla

I have restored this beautiful 1.3 Litre II Generation 1974 Toyota Corolla with Patience and every detail of this car is lovely and I enjoy my ride in this.

Nice work there. The side profile for some reason reminds me of the Contessa.

Nice car to add on to your long list of assets. The color change is news to me though. Good choice of color, a very stand out amongst the crowd color I must say. Enjoy the car and wishing you many many miles of happy motoring with it Ram.

Nicely done. I am sure the ORVMs are not stock though.

John, IIRC, the Toyotas of this era used to come with these ORVMs fitted on them. Remember seeing them in the movies of yesteryears especially those with Kamalhassan in them.

Sweet job with the restoration, Hillram. She looks like just rolled out of the factory! How about some work in progress pictures? I don't like the colour but guess that it is very "seventies".

BTW isn't this the third-gen Corolla?

Yes GTO..this is seventies colour and chose it after lot of research.
I guess 1974-79 was II Gen as per my knowledge.Let me check.

@agspins..I intend to keep the stock alloys..unless i find a good retro looking 70s alloys to match the era and epoch.

Nice job, Hillram! Man, those ORVMs look like PRVMs (Pedestrian-controlled Rear View Mirrors)!
