ok
My 1977 corona wagon with the original engine (18RC)
has done 350200k's
i have no idea if the engine has had a rebuild, or what not..
but the engine runs fine, carby needs replacing, probably explains the stalling,
it pulls up hills well, usally at about 60 in 3rd...
i got just over 560k's on a full tank, dunno how big tank is though..

anyhow, i was just wondering is that good for its age etc?

My old Fairlane has done 239000, and is going strong, and I have seen them with over 450000 on the clock. It all depends on how you treat the engine, and how lucky you are Smile My old camry lasted past the 320000 mark, but then blew up shortly after I sold her to a friend, because he trashed it a bit. And my first car, 1986 VK comodore blew a con rod before reaching 200000, so it all depends.

The ones i see in wreckers are always above 300 thousand, anything below and you can see they died of rust. Smile
