Rare TE71 - 1980 Toyota Sprinter 1600 Trueno Coupe - 2T-GEU
April 07, 2018
It appears as though Motor Spirit Alpha of Fukuoka City has packed up shop, and that has caused me to search the archives for a classic Toyota coupe that they once had up for sale. This E70-series Sprinter Trueno liftback is powered by the 2T-GEU engine, and is indeed a rare bird.
The E70 Series Sprinter was built from Mar 1979 to Jun 1987. This Sprinter coupe was built in 1980. It has a 1,588cc inline 4 engine.

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>
