Refurbished 1971 Toyota Corona for sale on From the seller’s description:

Two owners from new, this Corona has 16,000 original miles. This Wagon is equipped with factory air conditioning, which works great. These cars are now quite rare, and this Corona may be one of the nicest with the lowest mileage in existence. The car has an original Pennsylvania title that was issued on 11-17-1971. The original owner passed away in the seventies, and his family kept this car tucked away for 30+ years before parting with it. This Corona was then purchased by a Toyota Dealership, with the intention of showcasing it as a Halo vehicle alongside a few other vintage Toyotas on their showroom floor. Although it was still in great relative condition, they freshened it up before putting it out on display. The paint was faded so they had the body completely stripped, refinished, and every piece of the factory original trim was reinstalled. They also had all seats fully reupholstered which was all completed around 2007.
