Carina Sightings: Carina TA40 deluxe wagon


Yesterday this orange Carina deluxe wagon became for sale on Marktplaats and I wrote to the owner asking if I could put it on the blog since it is such an amazing treasure find!

The owner is the second owner of the car since 2006 and bought it back then with only 124.000km on the odometer and today the Carina only covered 146000km so far!

The bodywork appears to be in excellent condition and that is mainly due to the anti rust treatment the first owner applied to the car.

That doesn’t mean time stood still on this car: there is some minor surface rust on the wheel arches and around the fuelcap but apart from that the car is in great nick.

Also the interior is in excellent condition:

which is due to the first owner driving around with (sheepscloth) sheets and the second owner being very careful with the car.

The engine is the well known 2T and is mated with, probably, the same 3 speed autobox as mine:

I’m very tempted to buy this car, but it is simply too beautiful and perfect to be ruined by me… 😉

So if anyone else got 1250 euros for spare: this is an excellent opportunity to get yourselves one of the last Carina station wagons! You can find it for sale here:
