1986 Toyota Corolla GT-S

WHAT I AM SELLING: 1986 Blue Toyota Corolla GT-S (USDM Kouki AE86) 'Bluetop' 16V 4A-GE ___ I have had this car posted half heartedly on Facebook for over a year. Lots of lowballs. Due to pressing family financial concerns I am now posting it here on Ebay. ___ Purchased over 10 years ago in Florida. It sat under a cover (started and running fine but untouched) for a couple years before being trailered to Washington. Installed a few bolt ons and got it running really well after getting to Washington. Drained all fluids and replaced with amsoil synthetics where available (coolant, oil, transmission, differential, and brake fluids were all drained and replaced).The timing belt that came on the car snapped while I was trying to tension it (old belt and over tightened). No expendable income and 2 small children meant the car was covered and ignored... Where it currently sits. Clean Florida title. Odometer reads 179k. Previous owner said the engine was taken apart/machine surfaced and rebuilt with OEM seals but I have no way of confirming that - Never tore it down enough to see. Can confirm from personal experience it ran fine and had even compression and a stable idle when it was parked. Smooth shifting T50 trans too (yep even 2nd). Most of what I did as an owner was maintenance and getting the car back to reliable stock-ish state. All parts listed below were purchased brand new. Less than 200-300 miles on them before being parked on pavement under a cover for the last 3 years: -Disassembled the entire wiring harness and cleaned it, inspected every wire and repaired many that had signs of wear in the jackets/were starting to break. I have worked in high end car audio and home theater, this wiring work is of professional quality. -Stainless Brake lines, slotted rotors, aftermarket pads, and synthetic brake fluid -Interior is currently gutted and sits with just a single driver's seat installed (as I had plans to beadblast the metal and weld in a cage for rigidity) -Sparco 2 Spoke Suede Wrapped wheel with NRG Quick release (and quick release lock with key). I have an additional aftermarket wheel I can include that came with the car (not sure on brand as it's unmarked). -Cheap and faded knock-off Bride (Driver and passenger) seats with brackets (these seats suck but are functional for the moment, you'll want to replace eventually) -Weighted shift knob and billet shifter extender (TWM) -Short shifter (T3 - awesome piece of kit, big beefy billet components) -Rear hatch stiffening bar (T3) -Full coilovers (T3 not sure on the spring compression anymore but I can look it up if it's necessary. I remember it being middle of the pack on what was recommended for drift/autocross versatility -Adjustable red anodized billet Cam-gears (T3) -Aluminum aluminum Radiator shroud (T3 brand?) -Aftermarket thick aluminum radiator (Godspeed) -Rebuilt ignition with OEM parts (coils, Iridium NGK Plugs, wires) -Flushed the heater core (I was wrenching on this in WA in the winter so it was a high priority) -Aftermarket speakers (nothing special but they all work and aren't blown) -Aftermarket aluminum wheels. Not sure on brand but I loved the look of them. Little bit of a lip due to offset. -Cat back high flow exhaust and muffler. No brand marks noticeable, was likely done by a muffler shop. Looks like quality work. Was on the car when I bought it. -Strut tower Tri-Brace (T3) -Injen Short Ram intake -Removed TVIS -Aftermarket silicone radiator hoses -Black gel-coated TRD style wing included but not installed (install brackets have been a little messed up and will need some basic fabrication to install) -I do have most of the blue interior that the buyer can have. Fair to poor shape. Serviceable but nothing special. (shown in pics) -The back lid has some small amount of damage (a couple small holes from mounting) where a TRD style wing was installed and through friends not understanding and trying to help, they pushed the car with the wing and it broke the brackets. Many attachment methods would be appropriate. I did not fill as I intended to use them to remount the spoiler and the car has been covered. -The OEM 'snowflake' wheels that came on the car from the factory and the mint center caps for them -The driver side door handle doesn't work from the outside. Just lifts up with no tension. The inner metal arm likely just came disconnected but I ignored it -Some very minor rust spots around the car, mostly on the normal troublespot of the spare tire well and a bit on the surface of the inner fenders (still in the very easy to salvage state). Nothing all the way through the metal, just surface oxidation waiting to be blasted/saved. Time to save this chassis. -The shell is generally in well above average shape and why I purchased it in the first place. Considering trades for a clean and reliable daily driver if you are local. Need a high mpg commuter but $$ talks.
