V8 powered Toyota Corona Coupe

Check out this V8 powered Toyota Corona Coupe. Not merely any V8 either but an all aluminum Lexus 1UZ V8 hooked to a manual gearbox.

It started as this plain Jane 1972 Toyota Corona with a 2.0L inline four cylinder engine. The builder didn’t just ram in the V8 either but created more of a hot rod using just the shell and fabricating almost everything else including a new frame. Suspension is very much hot rod inspired with Mustang II style at the front and a four link at the rear with a Ford 9″ differential.

Very impressive build with lots of custom metal work.
