This original early example of the AE86 is located in Romania, and retains its original 4A-GE twin cam engine, excellent cloth trim and factory red paint. The seller has informed us that the car has some rust in the usual places, but runs, drives and brakes well. The car requires little work to get in full roadworthy condition, and would make an excellent club car or daily driver.
These cars have a big European following, and were very successful in the European Touring Car Championship between 1984 and 1988. Most notably, the AE86 won the European Touring Car Manufacturers Championship in 1986, surpassing some heavy competition including the BMW M6. The AE86 also made its name as a successful rear drive club racing car, and was a pioneer vehicle in the early days of drifting. Those that know the cars well would also recall its regular appearance in the "Initial D" Japanese street racing manga series.
A great modern classic at a very reasonable price, with lots of potential. For more information or to inspect the car, please contact Tirnovean by logging in and clicking the contact seller button above.
