Brilliant or blasphemy? This 1968 Toyota Corona is probably both

On the face of it, almost everything about this 1968 Toyota Corona is as you'd imagine. It comes in exactly the sort of bland grey shade you expect from a JDM sedan from the 60s, with matching black interior, with a simple radio and a big steering wheel. You could even call it discreet and elegant. However, there's one big and obvious thing you can't miss and that's the stance.

The suspension system in the car has been extensively modded and every single thing has been either changed or modified and this 68 Corona now sits on hydraulic suspension, which is the same sort of thing you find in a bouncing lowrider. Furthermore, the driveshaft tunnel has been raised which means the car can, I'm quoting, "lay out flat on the ground". Discuss.

Anyway, other than the unusual hydraulics, the Corona is in pretty good shape. It has been imported straight from Japan, it has a clean title, it is legally registered with MVD in Arizona and it is emissions exempt with Hagerty classic car insurance. It comes in great mechanical and cosmetic condition and everything on it, including the electronics, work. It is powered by a 1.5 L four-cylinder engine, with a 3-speed manual gearbox. The asking price is $7,900 and that sounds like a bargain, doesn't it?
