The Toyota Corolla is a line of subcompact and compact cars manufactured and marketed globally by Toyota. Introduced in 1966, the Corolla was the best-selling car worldwide by 1974 and has been one of the best-selling cars in the world since then.
The third generation in April 1974 brought rounder, bigger and heavier Corollas. The range was rounded out with the addition of a two-door liftback. The Corollas were given E30 codes. A face-lift came in March 1976. The E30 Corolla was fitted with retracting front seat belts.
This Toyota Corolla comes from the third generation (designated KE30 or E30). It is a rare version of a 2-door sedan, engine 1.2 liter, four-stroke. Year of production 1979, the first owner of the car was a priest, who owned it for about 35 years. Then another owner did an amateur home renovation, so that he sprinkled the car with paint, fortunately the same as the original. His friend bought the car from him, so historically there were three owners. The front seats are pre-slipped into an unoriginal material, but it looks nice. The car is still more or less a project, the bodywork/paint needs a complete renovation. However, it is from ca. 98 % complete.
