    Tell how is its engine condition? If you've lost its power then go for a swap.
    Secondly get ur car's denting painting done bumpers included.

    First of all congrats, mashallah car need little attention mostly cosmetic changes will giv it a better look, if the engine n transmission is in good condition u already saved a lot, overall car body is in shape just denting n shower will give it a fresh look, need to replace bumpers n broken lights, clean lights/speedometer, dont know condition of door panels, if they r not worn out get them fixed with proper clips etc, if its power windows? steering wheel & grear know colour is different from dash board wich is lookin odd try 2 exchnage them with matching colour frm magzine line or shershah, dashboard is badly cut 4 player fill it with a nice stereo system, wat else oh yes if its diesel converted, suspension must have gone, check the axel/bushes/shocks/coilovers, do post more detailed pictures n condition of other areas. also replace the front grill & back garnish with 96 corolla. if tyres r gud replace rims 4 add on.

    body refinishing is required, And for mechanical overhauls - completely remove the rear and front suspension/steering/linkages - and renew their bushes.

    For interior buy an SE saloon interior and put it in.. cheap easy and simple approach.

    If the engine is in good condition and no swapping required, then don't convert the tranny to manual.Conversion of transmission is usually not successful.
    However,if engine requires a swap, then you can go for an Engine with manual transmission.


    Secondly, the car readily needs denting painitng.
    Get it done and you are ready to go.

    This corolla is no doubt the best Corolla ever produced.
