Japanese woody wagons are awesome. So is the color. And what's with '70s Japanese wagons having awesome window bottoms? The rear window of this one...the curvy ones on 710s and Subaru wagons...they're sweet. Love the great, all-original condition, and those pointy rear lights. Great find.

ooh what an ultimate color, and woodgrain is looking well preserved.

love those big circle headlights.

that is a fantastic wagon. one of my favorites so far. it looks to be in great shape and that color does go well with the wood cladding. I love the Japanese classics.

the weird yellow/brown combo makes it look like a poo-mobile.please flush it.

Looking at this post again makes me wonder when someone in Portland is going to set a trap for me with details that I can't resist.

That color with that woodgrain+the lighting=awesome.

Looks good in Yellow. Always a great combo with the faux-woodgrain, but the third gen corollas looked relatively dorky compared to their predecessors. Probably something to do with the big bumpers and the transitional period from curves to upright box, this has elements of both.

Being that you could buy most of Toyota's lineup in your choice of coupe, liftback, hardtop, sedan or wagon back in the day, I'd have taken this guy in coupe form, the Corona as a sedan, the Cressida for the wagon, Starlet for hatchback and skipped the ugly A40 Celica and Supra entirely.
