View Full Version : My TE70 Daily

25th February 2008, 12:21 PM
this is not a build thread just a place for some pics and info on my daily.

picked this up off Andy after i pranged the yellow 70

JDM Te70 Sprinter that must have been imported at some stage

differs to local 70's big time

Its a TE70 Sprinter 1.8 XL with a 13T-U engine, T50 gearbox and T series drum brake diff. It was factory fitted with a T40 and and an S diff, but someone went to some effort as the car has that upgraded driveline, proper flared rear guards and has recieved a respray at some stage. still has steering box like a T18 but its fine for daily use

You can notice that the front end is different (lights and bumpers), along with the C Pillars and the Tail Lights. It has a different dash, and instead of over shoulder seat belts in the the rear, it has lap belts only! interior is pretty pimp too, basic brown but the trim is different on the door cards and seats add to that the DOPEST set of floormats the world has ever seen!! bright blue rubber with "Sprinter" on them the rear one goes up over the tunnel lie skylines etc and looks cool as :lol:

i put my 86 coilvers in and some AJPS stuff i the back. used the cross fevers on the front it came with as it has Corona LCA's so they fit quite well, then added my SSR starshark II's to the rear to fill the rear arches out better.

I was going to build this but its just not the right car for it, I don't want to destroy what migh be the only one of its kind in the country :lol:

it's actually going back to stock setup as i have another car that needs those "fun" parts. it will soon be riding on 86 struts and stock rear end and will probably roll on 86 stockies, it will get an S diff as well as the T diff is leaking and could be better used locked in someones skid rig :lol:

I will daily this until my other project is finished and then it will be sold off

i'll have some more pics up of interior etc later

I heard that you crashed as you were being chased by paparazi and Gilly DC fans and whilst doing a skid and eating a kebab whilst sorting out Qantas Abe506 luggage you nipped a gutter, but the gutter broke from you Uber coolness, and the car was only damaged cause you frowned at it! And it actually exploded from the look of you frown!

Can you back this up?

I might be interested in buying this when you have finished using it for a daily.

Hey gilly were did u get ur gear knob from ?

27th February 2008, 11:20 PM
Who did the work on the rear guards? Looks very neat.

I knew you'd keep it, friggin sweet daily.

27th February 2008, 11:35 PM
gearknob was on ns.com, its a Razo item and cold in the morning and equally uncomfortable (but at the other end of the temperature spectrum) when it is warm outside.

Henry, guards were like that when the car was save from the wreckers. car will be kept for a few more months while the other car is being built, may even be advertised again sooner, i have a t18 coming on saturday if its easy enough to roady and rego and might daily that and sell this :lol:

27th February 2008, 11:42 PM

28th February 2008, 12:05 AM
That is mega old school class dude, love it, love it lots :)

I just love the way that the beige goes through the car, from the outside to the in. That is true classiness right there :2thumbs:

28th February 2008, 12:10 AM
