I discovered this One Owner Completely Original 1979 Toyota Corolla in Chubbuck, Idaho where it had been stored in a family barn for many years. The vehicle was traded to a gentleman who restores vintage tractors in exchange for his services. In my 27 years as a car dealer and vintage auto and motorcycle collector, I have seen very few 39 year old vehicles as original and unmolested as this Toyota. The term “Barn Find” is thrown around a lot but this vehicle was stored in a barn in the dry southern Idaho dessert which I believe, is the reason for its incredible condition.

I have spent the last 5 months “Preserving” this vehicle. I have gone through this Toyota front to back to insure that the next owner has a great fun driving experience just as Maurice Harding, the original Owner, did when she purchased the vehicle new on September 21, 1979.

This vehicle ran when I bought it, but as one would expect needed to be freshened after so many years in a barn so following is short list of what my mechanics and I have done.

A Full tune up by my mechanic including new distributor cap and rotor, spark plugs and wires, rear wheel cylinders replaced, replaced brake fluid, front and rear wheel bearings repacked and replaced seals, radiator flushed, new cap installed, new fan belt, fuel filter, air filter, oil and filter, and full rebuild of the carburetor.

When this was accomplished, I drove the Toyota back to my shop, put it up on my lift and spent the next 3 months cleaning the car inside and out and going through everything to insure a great driving experience for the next owner. I removed all of the lights, bumper trim, seats, carpet, inner fender wells etc. and deep cleaned everything, All of the electrics in this vehicle work perfectly! I installed new wiper blades, light bulbs, cleaned all the sockets, removed wasp nests from the inner fender wells, polished and waxed the exterior, treated all of the rubber etc. The windshield had some stars and cracks which have been repaired. The car is exceptionally clean and straight with all original paint! It has some chips in the paint and a couple dings which I have not tried to hide. The vehicle has no rust at all except for a tiny dime sized area on the lower right front fender. I have cleaned and treated that area and it will not spread. The interior is 100 percent original and in amazing shape! The photos tell the story! The original jack, lug wrench and Owner’s Manual and original bill of sale dated 9/21/79 are included as well as a clean title.

This 1979 Toyota Corolla is now ready for its new owner. It starts right up, shifts crisply up and down through its 5 speed transmission and I have run it up to 80 miles and hour. The brakes are wonderful, the heater blows hot and the AM radio only plays Country Music! The handling is great and it is a pleasure to drive! NO EXCUSES AND NO SURPRISES!!!

Don’t hesitate to pick this vehicle up and drive it home! It runs as new and will go anywhere you point it.
