Daily Driving a B211


Recommended Posts

Hmmm...I think something like a Lancer Box would have a few more "better" creature comforts than a B211 and a more refined ride too. Perhaps even a B310 ? How old are you looking at ? Even a Corolla E80 is an old car. Same with a Toyota Carina A60 or a Corona T140...

Mechanically....these cars are pretty simple. However most of the components are really old and have passed their use-life and have been replaced a few times. So if you want to run the car daily without having to run to the garage often..you will have to invest in fixing up the engine with proper parts/components.  Sadly you will not find original manufacturer parts so you will have to use good OEM parts (one problem is a lot of people fix these cars with cheap OEM parts). Depending on the car..sometimes you will have to come up with ingenious ways to fix it because the parts are simply not there. Then there is the electricals...you should be prepared to fix that up. Old cables, fuses, fuse boxes, relays, etc...

When you are buying it...check out for the body....rust is an enemy to these old cars. Also, most would have had really bad fix-up jobs (filled with putty and poor tinkering work). So this can give you problems (rust coming up...poor body work falling apart). People who can do a good tinkering job are disappearing but still around. The issue you will face with this is finidng parts like body beadings or lights and stuff.
