    Default Is it worth to buy Rolla74???

    Hello All Corolla74 owners/lovers!

    I know that rolla 1974 was a very good car of that time (1974-1990).

    But the question is; Is it still worth to buy it when car's prices are heading towards K-2?:p

    *If yes, what should be the price of a good one?
    *Anything serious goes wrong with car?
    (fuel consumption, s.parts problem etc)

    *Is it good for daily Urban use? (not more then 50kms/day)
    AND
    the most important question
    *Can it bear AC? (any MODS rqrd 4 AC pr4mance?)

    Really Needs spectra's help:-)

    Gentleman I am using this car for last 35 years, actually my dad bought it when i was just a kid, today I drive it to work, few days ago I got chalanned near mian channu while coming from Multan to Islamabad at 120KMPH (sorry for over speeding) but the ride is so solid that I never came to know i was way over speed limit, I never used AC with it but I have heard that hanging unit type AC is quite sucessful. There is a slight problem of over heating on AC but I have heard if you replace old belt driven fan with electectric fan then this problem is easily overcome. Last time i got this car overhauled in 1984 (25 years ago) and has done 300000 Miles(odometer is in miles) and still running solid. You talk of 50 km per day, drive it 500 km per day, but you got to look after it like any other piece of machinery, very very solid car, never needed any other car and plan to keep it for next 10 years (inshaAllah). Any querries you are welcome

    I would vote for Corolla 74
    it has 1200 or 1300 cc engine as compared to 1000cc and 1200cc engines of 120y.
    the 120y body is over-sized and results in low power to weight ratio.
    Suspension and drive wise both are cars of their era but corolla still has some edge.
    With side ac engine heating problem is likely in both but slight modification will solve it ... change fan or radiator
    50km per day is no problem for both these cars

    Buy a good one, dont go for a rusted body, you are lucky that you are in Rwp, all spares are available in rwp, in the beginning there will be adjustment problems but I can assure you it is 200% better than suzukis, this car is a marvel of Japanese craftmanship, you will lov it

    He is advising Datsun because of two things:
    1. Second hand datsun is cheaper than Corolla
    2. It is lighter in weight and slightly more economical on fuel (waisay in my experience negligible difference hai)
    but brother in quality and safety corolla is miles ahead of corolla

    corolla is miles ahead in safety....
    Sir!

    Do some research from internet. The safety results are:

    Corolla safety:

    1970-1978 significantly worse then average*
    1980-1982 significantly worse then average*
    1984-1988 worse then average**
    1990-1995 average***
    1996-2000 significantly better then avrage****
    2001-2003 worse then avrage**
    2004- Up average***

    Well....as I already say, Masha-Allah your car's rocking!

    so 200k is nothing 4 it!
