As Australian drag racing begins to fire up once again post-pandemic, this Toyota Corona will no doubt get its fair share of jibes from track announcers and fans, but this sweet little sedan has a power to match its unfortunate namesake.

Luke Redman's Toyota Corona

Queensland’s ET Chassis and Race Cars recently released some pics of the overhauled Corona, which owner Luke Redman brought in for a sheet metal housing for the Toyota Hilux diff, Race Products floaters, Afco shocks, Enemies Everywhere sway bar, chrome moly tube arms and some mini-tubs for good measure.

There’s a whole bunch of work in the rear end to help Redman find grip on the Mickey Thompson 255/60R15 radial tyres (and perhaps some win lights in the Kenda 660 Drag Radial Series).

Up front is a single turbo Toyota 1JZ, a straight-six 2.5 litre motor famous for being bulletproof under boost and well suited to conversions like this.
