Bring-a-Trailer auction completed but buyer backed out. Offering at closer to our cost to import $9500 or near offer.
Toyota Corona Mark II pickup truck model RT69 with the rugged 1600cc 12R motor. Similar size to the Datsun Sunny – with that old school Toyota utilitarian charm. Looks great in it’s Watanabe wheels and runs and drives well. Looks good for it’s age and able to be enjoyed in it’s preset condition.
Interior is pretty clean with nice dash, seats and door panels. Split on driver’s seat. All gauges and controls work.
Exterior evidence of multiple repaints – was red at some point – but the trim is present and bed is solid. We removed rubberized coating in the truck-bed – primed and sprayed white-paint over this steel bed-area so new owner can more easily see what they’re buying. Body does have some rust – approx 2 sq inch of cancer on front of hood; foot-well steel previously replaced; some rust in the rockers and right frame rail (under driver’s seat). This a good looking ’10 footer’.
Engine / Drivetrain starts right up and runs well. Clutch feels good and 4-speed manual transmission shifts fine. Recirculating ball steering has more play than modern vehicles… Newer ignition wires, battery, and water pump.
Spares includes many used and NOS spares – tail light lenses; mirrors; filters; brake parts; ignition components; gaskets; etc. as shown in the photos below.
