Looks good on the surface, but take a closer look at the condition a $22K landed AE86 will REALLY be in, this one was auctioned this morning.
This classic 1985 Toyota Corolla Levin GT APEX 3 door coupe with 217,366 km was inspected for a client at USS Nagoya auction on 24 August 2018.
This AE86 was a colour change from red to white. Paint was in average condition for Japan, with overspray and cracking evident around door hinges and elsewhere (and left the original colour in less visible locations). Quite “wavy”.
It was fairly modified with aftermarket sideskirts, bumper and rear spoiler. Also fitted with aftermarket suspension (adjustable front), radiator, 15″ Work alloy wheels, dual exhaust and TRD shocks.
Right side rear quarter panel under petrol filler – paint was cracked. Underbody rust. Boot floor was rusty. Edges of the corner and back panels were corroded. Quite rusty under the rear spoiler.
Dashboard had large cracks.
Aftermarket bucket seat was very tight, and hard to use for anyone of even moderate size.
