Toyota Corolla/Corona 1964-94

The Corona that arrived in 1964 changed Australia’s medium-car market forever and surely deserves better treatment than is its current lot.

Excellent examples of the 1960s ‘shovel-nose’ normally sell at $5000-7000 and rarely make $10,000.

There is little incentive to preserve later versions when values for 1978-86 cars are typically below $4000.

Corona hardtops do better but are very scarce even in Japan. Early Corollas are doing well, especially early KE70 Sprinters and KE55 coupes.

With rally heritage and kudos with today’s ‘drift’ enthusiasts, the AE86 Sprinter remains popular and prices are strong.

Corolla fans going for the top shelf Levin and Trueno two-doors need to look at the import market and budget $30-35,000.
