    Default 1986 Toyota Corolla AE82 20 Valve - Club Racer?

    Now on ebay - http://cgi.ebay.com.au/ws/eBayISAPI....:L:LCA:AU:1123

    I have come to the realisation that I have too many projects, too little time, and too little motivation to get them all done. So its time to clear out some of the fleet.

    First to go is the AE82 Corolla.

    Details - 1986 Corolla. Started life as a stock white AE82 twin cam.

    At some point someone got very serious and resprayed it blue, had a silvertop 20 valve fitted, and spent some money on the stereo system and interior - custom carbon fibre parts have been installed.

    Suspension has pedders springs and alleged to be upgraded shocks and bushes, but I can't see much evidence of that when I stick my head under the wheel arch.

    Interior is neat and tidy.

    Exterior has one spot of rust in the standard AE82 spot of the rear wheel arch, and the front bar has had a whack. Still looks great all cleaned up.

    Tyres are good.

    Brakes need bleeding, and clutch needs adjusting - brakes now done, still needs some work to get a good pedal.

    I bought the car with a nasty engine knock, which I had hoped was the VVTi pulley, but more investigation suggests its more like a bearing.

    I was going to pull the engine out and rebuild it, then I came across a reasonably priced silvertop that I was going to sling in the engine bay instead. But I have done neither of these things yet. It drives well despite the knock!

    A serious weekend or two of hard work and this would be back on the road and ready to do life as a daily driver, a club racer, or what ever else you might think of.

    Price is $1500 buy it now. Reserve is $1000 if you want to buy it before the auction finishes - use that as a starting point!

    The good condition spare silvertop 4age engine can be had for extra $$. I paid $925 in total for the bare engine (no manifolds or accessories) from Corolla Spares in Sydney a few weeks back, so that is what I want for it. The engine came out of an auto Levin with 135,000km on the clock.

    OZ wheels are not for sale.

    Email me adamlaws1974@bigpond.com or phone 0413 001 666 for more details. Car is in Eltham North, has no rego, no RWC.

    Front shot - can see the front bar needs replacing


    Factory standard rust, and broken rear bar mount


    Steering wheel needs some love.. you can seen the carbon fibre instrument pod top and maybe the centre console here too


    Interior shot


    Battery install - battery box is screwed to the boot floor cover, which is completely loose in the boot. That needs attention.


    Still has its books


    Started life as a white one


    How it looked with the OZ wheels
