1984 Toyota Sprinter Trueno
But this is the legendary AE86-chassis Corolla – or, more accurately for this Japanese-market car, a Sprinter Trueno. These have become renowned as a lightweight, great-handling sports car that is remarkably proficient at drifting – and thus solid examples tend to fetch big money.
This one wears a wide-body kit with flares, air dam, and rocker covers – all nicely painted pieces that will get ripped off the first time a drift goes wrong – and sits quite low over deep-dish alloy wheels. It’s a good look, though many prefer the original lines of an unmodified car. It looks to be well put together, though, and should be plenty of fun.
It’s on eBay in Houston for $19k or offer.
