Bronze Beauty: 1978 Toyota Starlet DX 5 Door - KP61

August 01, 2016

This browny-bronze Starlet is easily one of the best I've seen. The number plate would indicate that it's most likely a one-owner car, or bought by its current owner way, way, way back in the day, and cherished ever since.

The P60 Series Starlet was built from Feb 1978 to Oct 1984. This Starlet hatchback was built in 1978. It has a 1,290cc inline 4 engine.

How does winning stuff sound?

I've set myself an ambitious target, and that is to unearth all of Japan's rusting, nostalgic gems. It's not going to be easy. They're shy creatures and prefer to remain hidden. And, limited time and funds mean they're likely to stay that way, which would be not cool! <More>
