So you bought a Toyota too ;)

Wheels look okay, might be able to sell those I guess.

Cheers,

 ~ cop was cool though we talked cars for about 1 hour lol....

 

And driving a Kiadore... "How embarrassment" (as Effie used to say), or maybe "Sucked in bad" would be more appropriate!

 

All the hwy cars around here are still V8's at least...

Hi Fax,

Nice Cortina, a great classic!

Just for my understanding, Did the Toyota have a 6 speed front wheel drive box?
Are you putting the AE82 in as rear wheel drive?

One of my mates loves the little Toyotas but I hadn't heard of a 6 speed fwd.

Cheers, Tom

Yeah mate the gearbox bolted to the 4age was from a Levin BZ-R or Trueno BZ-R. They are the only two to offer 6speed lsd in Toyota fwd previous owner took the 5 speed out and put the C160 lsd in...the engine will now be a rear wheel drive engine

I'd guess they're hedging their bets, leaving the engine bay standard so they can put the car back the way it was if they ever want to sell it?

 

I can't imagine anyone would pay as much for it in it's current condition.
