1981 Toyota Corolla 4 Door Automatic Transmission, 1.8L Engine. NO RESERVE. The car is solid i am no pro but i dont see any body filler but it was painted black in the past from grey has rust areas as pictured mayority under drivers side door. We Purchased the car from South Carolina about 3 years ago and brought it up to Chicago, at that time I replaced the tires, battery, suspension components from the strut mounts on top all the way down to the control arm bushings on the bottom and all steering parts from the manual gear box down to the ball joints (All Quality parts MOOG/Beck Arnley) All Wheel Bearings were replaced and cooling pump/lines including radiator. The Car has been a Super reliable Daily Driver for the last 3 years and we put about 20K miles on it on city streets and highway speeds doing 60-65mph. We tried our best not to drive it while it in the winter when it was snowing or afterwards when roads are salty. I lost my garage space this month and i would hate to keep the vehicle parked on the street. Time to pass it on to someone that will continue to use and enjoy it, it has served us well but please remember this is almost a 40 year old car. Odometer and Speedometer stopped working while we owned it and have started using a digital gps one. AC Blows cold, Heat blows hot. Please look at pictures carefully of actual vehicle. the double din radio is included but has been removed. The connections and installation will need to be checked it is not fully secured the radio that will be included it is a sony double din radio with bluetooth and calling over the mic and speakers and has a separate unit with lifetime sirius satellite radio subscription i have been using it for a few years now but it is non transferable to any other radio it stays with the unit. Clear title in my name, used vehicle sold as is. Any questions feel free to ask. All lights and turn signals are working.
The bad that i know of: Seat belts wont retract properly and need assistance to retract - rear driver side door handle is missing - I topped off the oil once in between oil changes, does not smoke - starter got stuck last month after the car was sitting for 2 months and i had to tap on it to get it going again, it has not done this since but worth mentioning. Brakes are starting to feel low on the pedal i will include new brake pads if wanted car still brakes fine. Trunk seal has a light leak when it rains heavy outside you can feel moisture inside the trunk, it usually dries up fast that same day. Front seats have some tears but i have seen alot worse on these kind of cars. Radio and speaker connections need to be checked and secured. I have removed the radio but will include it the auction with the car. Horn works on/off connections need to be checked. Small spider web windshield crack was filled with resin 3 years ago and has not spread any further.
Car is also for sale locally on the classifieds and i have the right to end auction early. If bidding please be prepared to give a 200 dollars non refundable deposit within 48 hours. I can hold on to the car for a up to 2 weeks after the deposit if you need extra time to pick it up.
