1978 Toyota Corolla

The 1978 Toyota Corolla was virtually unchanged from the previous year's model, perhaps because it was due for a redesign the following year.

The 1978 Toyota Corolla came in many body styles with several trim levels. The two- and four-door sedan came as a standard, DX or E5. The hardtop coupe and sports coupe came as a standard or a SR5. The wagon came as a standard or DX. The liftback came as a standard and SR5. All came with a 1.6-liter engine, except for the two-door sedan, which came with a 1.2-liter engine.

There are still drivers of the 1978 Toyota Corolla on the road today. One driver claims to have put 600,000 miles on his '78 Corolla. The biggest complaint drivers have is that the cars tend to get rusty.
