One Owner Survivor: 1985 Toyota Corolla Levin Apex (AE86)
December 15, 2018
Almost home from a long, long day of quality car-spotting in Fukuoka city, this well-worn AE86 drives by. I followed it for a bit, then I was able to catch the attention of the driver, and then I shot the video.
The E80 Series Corolla was built from 1983 to 1987. This Corolla liftback was built in 1985. It has a 1,587cc inline 4 engine.
