One-owner Wasabi: 1983 Toyota Sprinter Trueno AE86

March 01, 2017

Let us rejoice for car-show season has officially arrived in my part of the world. Hurrah, hurrah! And, at the very first event I attended an owner of a slightly crusty AE86 approached me and introduced me to his car.

The E80 Series Sprinter was built from 1983 to 1987. This Sprinter coupe was built in 1983. It has a 1,587cc inline 4 engine.
