  • New project 1987 Corolla FX16 "Red Panda"

    Here is my new project/flip car, my 87 FX16 called Red Panda. I plan on playing with this for awhile until I have my 81 Corolla sport coupe back on the road hopefully next year. Then I will sell this. It is a great car.It runs and drives and just needs a little love. It came with the 14" Toms wheels and as you can see you seats are perfect. Only the dash has a couple of cracks which is fixable. I forgot how great a sweet sounding 4AG was.











    I plan on dropping it some and giving it a red panda paint scheme, hence the name.



    I also plan on switching out the Toms wheels for 15" gold Enkei 92s.

          Nice to see FX's getting some more love these days. I'm about to transfer my build thread over here for mine, I look forward to seeing what you do with yours!

            Thanks, it's a great car. Small, light with a fantastic motor under the hood. I just want to get this thing in nice shape and cruise, show it and maybe beat up a Civic or two.

              Been slowly working on it little by little.



              Got all the nasty tint off the back window.



              Got the missing spark plug valley cover painted and installed. Also gave the engine compartment a good washing.



              Also started repainted all the old trim back to black. I also got rid of the ugly fog lights and waiting for factory turn signals and some other parts to show up.

                i was this for sale and i was trying to pick this one up but the guy would not get back to me...
                anyway, glad it went to someone who will take care of it and make it nice again.
