The Hachiroku AE86 came with a twin-cam 4AGE engine, while this car has a less-powerful but closely related single-cam 4A-C. Plenty of owners of these cars have swapped in the more rip-snortin' members of the 4A engine family, for an upgrade over the factory 75 horses.
With the automatic transmission, this car would have been pretty sluggish but well-suited for California stop-and-go commuter traffic.
These cars were known for their durability, but this one never even saw six figures on the odometer. There's no rust, which isn't shocking on a California Toyota, but you'd think that some drifter type might have wanted to rescue this car from its sad fate.
This is a pretty snazzy badge to denote a Liftback car.
Oh, what a feeling!
