1986 Toyota Corolla SPORT SR5

Legendary Toyota Corolla Sprinter Trueno 1986 (AE86 chasis) Initial D replica. Clean title, no rust! VIN matches everywhere!
3S-GE Beams 5th generation engine from Lexus IS300 (Toyota Altezza) with 6 speed manual transmission. It makes 210hp, revs up to 8,000rpm and with a brand new Magnaflow exhaust it sounds like an Formula 1 bolid. However if you keep it under 4,500rpm it is quiet and can be driven at 4am for a night shift tofu delivery with none of your neighbors calling police!
It has a power steering, 7.6" Chevy S10 rear end (4.1 gear ratio with LSD), custom 1-piece driveshaft, brand new set of coilovers with adjustible everything, thick racing radiator. The VSaero bumpers and side skirts made to look as close to Initial D AE86 as possible. Custom bash bars were also installed. Pretty much no interior left (and I don't have it): there are racing bucket seats, roll cage, 4-point seat belt (along with stock seat belts) inside, new sound isolation and carpeting. The fan and heater core were taken from '90 Celica and made to fit the 86. Heater works great, fan blow in one direction only - on the driver. The Android radio was installed instead of center air vents. It has Wi-fi, Bt, GPS, Google Play, Maps, connects to OBD2 etc. It also serves as a speedometer cause the one on the dash doesn't work (although tachometer is ok). Hand brake is solid . The fuel pump is loud though, as when I started this project I planned to put the turbo on and bought high performance pump (300 liter per hour) and used thicker fuel lines compared to stock ae86's. There's also ton of room in the bumper for an intercooler so if you will need 360hp, everything is ready for a turbo. Or you can replace the fuel pump for the silent one. The paint is far from perfect (has some flaws here and there especially the rear bumper) but not bad overall. It just needs to be buffed and polished really good. Previous owner had a minor collision in the rear left side - the whole thing was cut out and the new, not bent part from a donor was welded in (you can't really tell now). The side mirrors are JDM from Japan with electric adjustments.
All in all, the car runs strong! I drove it to Biloxi, MS for the car show the other day (8 hours of driving there and back): people were going nuts, waving, pointing fingers, stopping by to say how cool the car is. I mean if you don't like attention this is not your choice! I REALLY hate to sell the car but I am leaving the country soon and I would rather sell it to someone who appreciates it than leaving for years sitting and covering in rust...
Self pick-up only! If you are buying the car, you will have to come to Starkville, MS (GTR is the closest airport). I will ONLY meet you in my local bank office and will ONLY accept CERTIFIED check. You will be able to drive the car back home or pay the car shipping company - it's up to you! If you have any questions feel free to ask!
P.S. Lots of people contacted me asking what's the reserve price - it's $25k. I just want to tell that I am not that desperate in selling the car. If the offer won't reach this amount I will happily leave the car in a storage till I come back to US again. It's not that I am getting rid of it at any cost, I love it so much that I would hate to sell it for any price if only I didn't have to leave.
