AE7X/TE7X corolla’s

so i know I’ve been neglecting the blog since the holidays, but life’s been busy. One the bright side of things I have been looking for a cheap project car, something I can really sink my …almost used another lame cliche, I want something i can be more creative with.

One car that really interests me is theE70 series corolla’s, they had the same suspension as the well known AE86 chassis corolla’s, but they had a simple body design and they were all carbureted (in north america at least). so all the nice suspension bits from the newer ae86 corolla’s fit and most the driveline stuff fits as well, and your bolt-in engine options are quite good, basically any T or A series motor is a fit.

I could go on for a while about all the sidedraft carb setup’s with different engine choices I’d like to try, as well as all the smaller wide (14×8, 13×8) wheels i’d want, all the suspension mods I’d build, and all the different body styles i’d want to try these changes on. Just for you information these corolla’s were available in 7 yes 7 different shapes.

so for once i’m gonna get off the forums and craigslist and get back to showing you some cars.

    I like the 4 door black wagon but some one is sure to whack off those review mirrors just for the heck of it! don’t you think?

    Whoops I just saw Bahiyyih’s reply, curious.

    yeah someone might try to do that, but I wouldn’t let what some wanker might do to my car stop me from building it the way I’d want.

    The two door wagon is definetly the sweetest. Probably a bigger project than you would want to do, which kind of backs up Bahiyyih’s remark. LOL

    we’ll we never got the 2door wagon in north america so it’s not a viable option, I would really love the 4door wagon but they had a leaf spring rear end while all the rest had a 5 link coil rear end.
