Occasionally I browse Goo-Net to see if there are any interesting Toyota Carinas for sale, like a Carina Jeune or a 20v Carina. So when I spotted Yokosuka’s deep blue Toyota Carina AA63 for sale earlier today I really felt a strong pain in my heart:
Why? It is one of the nicest Carinas around and he put so much time and effort in the car!
Yes it really is the same…
Under the bonnet we can find a 20 valve blacktop from an AE111 with ITBs and this will give the car similar power as the 4T-GTE should have given in 1982. Of course it can’t match its torque. 😉
The blacktop has been granted a coil-on-plug conversion
Allegedly, according to the add the car has power steering, aircon, cd/dvd player and navigation built in. Unfortunately there are no photos to back this up.
Most interesting is this photo:
I see some nice sidedraught carburetors with very long velocity stacks. Even if they were mounted to an 4AGE they will not easily fit a Carina AA63 or Corolla/Sprinter AE86 as those stacks are way too long. So what could they be used for then instead? A race car?
Anyway, if you think 1,180,000yen (15000 dollar) is not a steep price for such perfection, you can buy it here:
