RT40 '70 model SE?

Hello all,

I just bought a Corona RT40 1970 sedan and has an SE badge on the rear panel. It has factory bucket seats(i think) and factory AM radio. I was just wondering if there is such a thing as an SE RT40 or is it a backyard mod, as the car was resprayed sometime in the '80s I've googled it and haven't found anything.

Any help would be appreciated.

Cheers.

Thanks for the reply, I have owned three different RT40 Coronas in the past 25 years and I have never seen or heard of an SE RT40. I am kinda certain the SE edition wouldn't have anything different or special compared to a standard RT40 (probably the bucket seats perhaps).

Cheers

Redbook shows that there were 3 different 1970 RT40 trim levels sold here - Base/no-name, SE, and SL (the 1900cc sports version).  Quite likely that the base model was the one that sold the most so it would be the more common one to find on the roads now.  Plus Toyota had a habit in those days of not putting badges on their cars to differentiate the trim levels.
