The Only One: 1985 Toyota Corolla FX-GT (AE82)
October 04, 2017
I've been going to more than a dozen car shows each year here in Japan, and take car-spotting rather seriously, too. I've easily seen a hundred AE86s, but this is the first, and only, front-wheel-drive E80 Toyota Corolla I have ever seen in Japan.
The E80 Series Corolla was built from 1983 to 1987. This Corolla hatchback was built in 1985. It has a 1,587cc inline 4 engine.
