This is my 1982 Toyota Corona Mark II Grande GX61 hardtop. I bought it with the intention of fixing it up and using it for a daily driver but soon after I got it I was offered a company car so that plan changed. I took it to a couple of Joe Manji track days in which it went well albeit underpowered. However the GT-T makes a better drifter so the Mark II shall remain a street car.

To start with I fixed the rust and brakes to get it back to road legal, then a few modifications were done for good measure. I fitted a 1G-GEU which had a few mods but turned out due for a recondition so out it came. Currently running a 1G-FE with ECU and loom from a 90's
mark II GX90 M/T.  Its not as willing to rev as the old 1G-GEU but a great cruising engine with excellent economy and driveability.

I found a 1983 model GX61 Mark II rolling body for sale (facelift model) which I prefer the look of, so the car was bought and stripped of its facelift parts. The huge number of differences between the 1982 and 83 models became apparent as I was stripping the rusty 83.
I preferred the older blue interior styling so that was left as is. My aim was simply the later model looking exterior which involved swapping the bumpers, lights, side mouldings, bonnet & grill and the odd chrome trim.
