I'm phil I just came into possession of a 1979 Corolla. it needs some help but I think it's savable. I'm looking for help advice and parts.

here's the car as found surprisingly the tires all had air in them and the frame rails didn't look rusty.

I even managed to get it to sputter to life but the carb is toast so thats one thing I'm looking for.


I plan to recommission this for commuter and autocross duty. I already have the 13x7 wheels and a possible 1" front bar

I might consider selling if the offer is right. Truth be told I'm a Datsun guy so if you wave a Datsun car infront of me I'm more likely to trade/sell

I used to have a Datsun 510. It was a fun car. Rear wheel drive, dual point distributor and it came with independent rear suspension. I swaped in a 4 speed for the automatic, header, .040 over bore, Dual Zenith side drafts from Datsun 240Z and intake manifold . It was a kick to drive-back in the day.

I bet the setup you had was the SSS 38mm SU's. It is one of my favorite induction setups. As I put it "the closest thing to EFI you can get in a carby"
