Twin Plug 3T-GTE Engine: 1982Toyota Corona 1800 GT-T (TT142)

September 04, 2021

Awesome survivor-spec eighties sporty Toyota with over 245,000 kms on the clock, but the real story of this car is its engine. It's the DOHC 3T-GTE and it features hemi-chambered, 8 valve head, twin spark plugs, a CT20 turbo, and was the first turbocharged, twin cam engine built in Japan.

The T140 Series Corona was built from Jan 1982 to Dec 1987. This Corona sedan was built in 1982. It has a 1,770cc 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>
