Blue Bottle: 1969 Toyota Corolla Sprinter 1200SL - KE17

February 05, 2015

I've seen this KE17 Corolla Sprinter at car shows here in Kyushu for a few years now. It's so eye-catching in its bright blue paint & polished, chrome wheels.

The E15 Series Sprinter was built from Apr 1968 to 1970. This Sprinter Coupe was built in 1969. It has a 1,166cc 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>
