I have similar model - G reg 1989. Mine has 100,000 miles and rust on all arches, and i got it for £330 and had to replace full exhaust, 2 tyres, and 2 brake pads. £700 is my guestimate for yours Cool Chip.

I also have faulty connections on the light fittings, due to rust. They are not listed in the manual, and my local garage has been unable to find some. Can anyone suggest what I should be asking for, or looking for on the internet? I am talking about the metal connectors at the ends of the wires, which the bulbs slot in to. I have not been to a scrap-yard before. Are there going to be many Corollas this age do you think, or do most cars get crushed these days?

are u talking about the connection to the back of the head light bulb? 3pin prong type?

mine have a grease type coating on the connecters which i supose is to help fight rust.

can u not just scratch/sand down the connecters if so ?

i'll beable to take soem piccys tomorro afta work if all goes to plan, just got bak home now and its dark,

still need soem one to host the piccys tho :) ?

how much did you get in the end cool chip? 17 months after your post, i wrote off my 1.3 GL, and the insurance offered me £150 for it, minus excess, making total of £50 in hand. they wouldn't budge on that, despite me sending in plenty of proof
