1979 Toyota Corolla Deluxe Wagon

The new, 3rd gen Toyota Corolla was introduced in 1975, and affirmed Toyota's reputation for amazing build quality and good economy. It needed to, as it had many strong competitors at that time, both from Japanese manufacturers and domestic makers (though their compacts were hardly competitive.). Despite a higher price and fewer features than the competition, it was still a popular car during the gas shortages. This automatic-equipped wagon is painted a great shade of 70s gold.

  1. Excellent find, and in great shape.

    Man I really envy you guys in the States! I've been looking all over Vancouver for Japanese cars from the 70s and so far no luck. It probably has to do with the strict emissions testing, plus the programs the province has had to recycle their old cars.
