Green and Clean: 1978 Toyota Corolla Wagon

This next car is described as one owner until 2015, but I don’t think it matters if it had 52 owners in the last 42 years, because it looks in amazing shape for what it is. There is a psychosis among certain car guys that a little old lady owned car is the best…but those owners are almost all middle aged guys who take nice care of their classics, so I don’t know why they obsess over grandma’s wagon. I’m not a therapist, but here we are again. Find this 1978 Toyota Corolla Wagon offered for $7,500 buy-it-now in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho via eBay.

From the seller:

This beautiful little Corolla Wagon was purchased new in 1978 at Sundance Motors in Spokane, Washington and owned by the same woman until 2015. Still one of the cleanest and nicest original Corolla wagons in existence with only 69,815 miles. The car was painted once and the dark green metallic paint still sparkles in the sun and looks amazing, though it is showing some light wear and some small chips and dings. There is no rust anywhere on this car. There is a small amount of surface rust from battery corrosion under the hood above the battery area only, this is a very solid and clean car. Very nice interior showing only minimal wear. The whole dash looks almost new and has only 2 small cracks on top which are easily repaired. Runs and drives very good and shifts very smooth. A mileage log was kept up until 2011 when it had only 68333 Miles. Has a newer set of Toyo Eclipse tires. Not a perfect car but arguably close. Susie, as the original owner named her, gets comments and attention wherever she goes, but has not been driven much for years and needs a new home as we have too many cars and are downsizing. Currently the idle is uneven at times but runs great when driving. We will be having a mechanic look at it this week to determine the cause. Clean Idaho Title in my name, ready to be signed over to a new owner. Thanks for looking and congratulations to the new owner.

Located in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho on Interstate 90 in the beautiful Pacific Northwest.
