Fukui My Life: Mint 1986 Toyota Corolla Levin Apex

January 08, 2017

All you AE86 fans out there have suffered enough. The only Hachirokus I ever show on this channel are rotten and forgotten, but just this once I thought show you a beautifully preserved example.

The E80 Series Corolla was built from 1983 to 1987. This Corolla liftback was built in 1986. It has a 1,587cc inline 6 engine.
