You are bidding on a very rare and super hard to find one year USA import only "1972 Toyota Carina Delux". The 1972 Toyota carina was originally built on the 1972 celica chassis but uses corolla running gears, so the carina also has the rear spring and shock suspension set up as the celica which you can see in my pictures. I bought this car originally because I wanted to do a full restoration but I have way too many restoration projects right now so I have to sell this car because I know I would not be able to get this project done for a long time and I need the room in my garage. The car runs and drives but not very well, the engine fires right up and runs fine but the transmission will never shift out of first gear and slips a lot so it moves very very slowly, but I do have a spare original automatic transmission that will go with the car. I have driven the car for about 3miles so I know everything rolls fairly good but I never got out of first gear so that is about the extent of my drivability testing on this car. Basically to make it a reliable daily driver I would recommend doing a tune up and checking over some hoses, cables and all sorts of other stuff to make it a solid driver. Its a fun car to drive and has lots of potential...


The body will need some work for sure, there are a few dents through out the car but there is minimal rust on the body, the worst rust is inside the truck because it leaked into to the trunk, so there is surface rust through out the trunk but there is not much rust under the car. The front passenger side was hit at some point and someone replaced the fender as you can see in the pictures. There is very minimal rust under the car, the under carriage is actually in in great shape considering its age.


The car runs and drives but will need the automatic transmission replaced, ( I do have an other good automatic transmission that will be included with the car, it just needs to be installed). But other than that the car fires right up cold or warm and the engine sounds great.


The dash has few cracks in it, the drivers seat is really bad, but passenger seat and the rear seats are in ok shape. The radio is missing, the ignition is missing but I have a starter switch for it now, and the passenger door is missing the window regulator and the interior door cover so that will have to be fixed, but other than that the interior is all there. ..


This could be a very nice and rare car if this was restored, I have not seen a Toyota Carina for sale in the last 2years anywhere and I have been looking;; so I know this is definitely a rare car. But this car will need some work to make it a nice reliable daily drive. I hope I covered as many details as I could about the condition of this car, but please feel free to email me with your phone number if you have more questions I would be happy to answer them. Hopefully someone can restore this car to its full glory because it would be a very nice rare Toyota Carina when done. Please feel free to email me with any questions...
