    Default [NSW] JDM AE86 Panda Levin Coupe 1986

    Hi all,

    I bought this in October 2012 as i was still a fair way from having my full license and needed an N/A daily while i was working on my rx7 and just cant buy a normal car like a normal smart person would. Plus i have always wanted to have a JDM 86 and a coupe just topped it off for me!

    When i bought the car it had a 16v in it with an adaptronic e420c ecu and itb's. It was extremely slow and terrible to drive. I drove the car around for around a month and couldnt take it anymore and found a nice Blacktop 20v Kit for sale which included Haltech Sprint 500 ecu and full loom for AE86 (even came out of a Kouki Levin Coupe). So i did the swap in a weekend (really straight forward) and its now as an ae86 should be! It's obviously not really a fast car but it is alot of fun and certainly enough to get you into trouble.

    Pros: -
    -The body of the car is in my opinion really good condition. This is my 3rd AE86 and by far the best i've owned.
    -The engine i have no doubts in, idles fine, cruises fine, pulls hard, never given me troubles (i.e not starting, break downs etc)
    -The car drives really nice and smooth
    -Interior is in great condition
    -Very minimal rust
    -Air conditioning will be included with the car although not currently installed (have all bits you need the car originally had A/C previous owner removed and gave to me)

    Cons: -
    -Previous owner said the diff has been rebuilt although i doubt this as its abit noisy.
    -Tacho,temp and oil pres gauges not working from 20v swap + haltech
    -One crack in dash
    -Missing interior that goes around shifter boot
    -No heater from 20v swap also

    Specs: -

    Body: 1986 Levin Coupe APEX

    Drivetrain: -
    -AE111 Blacktop 20v RWD setup
    -Haltech Sprint 500
    -Rebuilt T50 (New synchros, new 1st,2nd and 3rd gears. Never crunches even on hard changes)
    -Factory LSD shimmed tighter (doesnt skip like a locker but locks up well when needed)
    -Xtreme Heavy Duty Clutch like new
    -Xtreme Lightweight Flywheel
    -Sam Q RWD gear on the back of the engine
    -Sam Q 70mm Trumpets
    -4.778 Diff gears

    Suspension: -
    -Unknown coilover arangment up front was imported this way
    -AJPS 7kg/mm 180mm free height rear springs
    -Upgraded front sway bar unsure of brand
    - Power Steering! (I actually really like it on them haha!)

    Wheels/Tyres: -
    Volk Racing TE37 15 x 6.5 (cant remember offset)
    Yokohama A Drive 195/50R15 75% Tread left

    I have all needed import papers

    I am really not in any rush at all to sell at the moment as i still have up until May till my full license. However i will sell prior to that of course if needed.

    Car is currently registered in NSW up until November 2013 i believe (will confirm tomorrow)

    Price: $13,000 Firm

    Location: Western Sydney, NSW

    Note: Car does not come with Nardi or Bride seat, will come with MOMO steering wheel and standard JDM black/grey seat.

    Contact: PM or 0423282930, I work 9-5 during the week or contact anytime during weekend.

    can vouch for this car from its previous life in qld...... and also can vouch for the EXTENSIVE diff rebuild.... was definatley done, and at substantial cost.

    good luck with sale mate, she is a definite pleasure!

    So i took the car out drifting last wednesday night on south circuit and i may keep the car at this stage but also might not, if you come look at the car and are happy id probably sell.

    Video from the night:



    Car ran faultlessly drove there skidded and drove home, the lights coming up on the dash was due to the nut on the alternator earth/plug thing vibrating loose, tightened back up and now no more lights come on while driving : )
