Hey guys this is my 1978 ke36 p/van

 

And I don't know what to do with it

I've had plenty of thoughts on this

I know it has a lot work to be done but I'm willing to work those hours cause I know it will be worth it in the end

 

What I've heard about this car:

This car was stolen once buy a bunch of kids and the owner found it around the corner, the kids blew the engine and so the owner had to get it replaced. It now has a 4k-c engine in it and hasn't been turned over in years.

So I'm not sure if it still work, but that's why I've started to strip the engine completely, so I'm gonna do a complete engine rebuild.

 

There is a bit of rust on the passenger rear end of the roof, and when I see 'a bit' I mean a shit tonne

I don't know how much damage there is to the main chassis

 

We'll anyways just let me know what you think and please give me some feedback on what I should do

Buy another, use this one for parts. That rust isnt worth your time to fix unless you are emotionally attached to the car.

Alright , I'll let you know my situation at the moment, I'm 15 currently on school holidays and I really want to get started on working on this car

But as you said it's gone too far I know that but I wanted to know if there was a chance of getting it back to life, but I'm doubting that.

You said I should look for a new one? That's what I thought I should at the start, I'm new to this so I'm just going to ask if you give me a hand in searching for a ke series corolla, I would prefer a wagon doesn't matter if it's windowless or not, even a rolling shell would be grouse. I would really appreciate it guys :)
