Could be! Sorry, then and now, my knowledge about cars is sketchy. This was given to me for use by my uncle who knew my penchant for cars. This was used in Belgaum, Karnataka. As soon as I returned home, my father saw to it that it was handed over back.

Mine was a 3 speed for sure, just like a 1956 Plymouth Savoy which was part of my school ride.

Maybe the 'deluxe' had more features too! 747 was supposed to have a 'cinema' connection and was supposed to have been with an actress!

Default wow!

Just stumbled upon this thread, what an amazing corona you have got there Inderpalgill ji. 43 Years that too in original paint is truly outstanding. Would love to see the engine room pics.

@Ajay99 Sir, have you noticed the Koito Sealed beams. Koito was a OE Vendor to Toyota as well.

What a great little old classic, I have fond memories of my uncles 67 Corona it was dark grey with red interior, I can still semell that old vinyl interior from the first time i rode in it as a 3 year old, he had it for many years a it proved a very reliable car, here in the harsh Australian conditions, he still regrets getting rid of the old girl, even though he currently owns the very latest toyota Corolla with every option in the book! this car is a real credit to you !

i have similar cars! 65, 69, 72 beetles, however i think yours is a 1302S not a 1303 with the curved windscreen, therefore not called the super beetle. it does have the mcpherson struts in front but not the curved windscreen and the plastic dash. i have a 1302s aswell. beautiful corona, i had a 69 which i sold recently..mistake but then parking doesnt permit passion!

sir pls chek the site
SuperBeetles.Com
which clearly states what super beetle is and the difference of 1302 and 1302s and the reason why it was named 1302 and not 1301,its interesting and knowledgeable and mine is a super beetle,thanks
