WaSabi Toyota Corona 1600GT (factory 4A-GE, but...) 1G-GTE Swapped!

September 10, 2022

I found this AT141 Corona 1600GT in the wild not once, but twice! That was a surprise, but a bigger surprise was finding out there was a twin turbo, 6 cylinder engine under the bonnet. Still on the car are some TRD accessories, RS Watanabe 8 spoke wheels, an aftermarket passenger seat and a huge array of non-factory gauges in the dash and centre console.

The T140 Series Corona was built from Jan 1982 to Dec 1987. This Corona was built in 1983. It has a 1,988cc inline 6 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>
