Restoration of my 67 Toyota Crown Wagon
Day One: Purchase the car.
Olympia WA, $250. So the journey begins. Been sitting outside, protected by moss since 1979! Hood is rusted through, surface rust in bizarre places. All trim is intact. Doors won't open, handles won't even move. So I bought it.
Back end had been run into a pole or two along the way, broken tail light and a nicely mangled bumper.
All the trim is there, all is decent condition. Wet inside, most of the rubber is past it's prime. Interior is more rusty than the exterior.
