Didn't want to drill a hole in the body for an antenna....

I did the complete restoration on the Corona but it still not 100% still some work to do but with the to do list on the Manta it may take a bit longer to complete.

don't have the before photo's on me right now but will sure share them on here

I would be happy to park either or both in my garage.

Those cars are beautiful.

We received both the Manta and the Corona Mk II here in the USA, but in sedan form only for the Toyota. :)

Your cars look great, exceptionally clean. If it wasn't a complete restoration, you must have spend hours in their respective engine bays? Thumbs up for effort.

Would also love to own a restomod Manta with Superboss engine one day, and have a particular soft spot for Corona's since my dad owned both a 1969 RT62 Mark II 1900 and 1973 RX12 Corona Mark II 2L.

Talk about being an almost 'frame off' restoration there! Job very well done. :mrgreen:
