    My Corolla Van!

    Hi,
    Here's my JDM Corolla KE72V from 1986. This was originally imported to Sri Lanka in 1989 by my father with just 40,000kms on the ODO. It's under my command now and I'm in the process of restoring it to factory-original condition. So far I've got most of the cosmetic bits completed and I'm working on getting all the details. It badly needs a repspray but that'll have to wait as I can't afford it yet! I'm planning on keeping her bone-stock but might swap the standard four speed with a five speed gearbox.
    Here are some snaps 8)










    My 'custom' gear knob!



    The rear lamp lenses are aftermarket and I had to separate the original lens from the frame to assemble these! Tough work!
    I even have the original Toyota half-seat covers from 1986. I'm missing one headrest cover so I'm on the lookout for a new set.
    Thanks for viewing!
    Regards,
    Jay.

    Thanks!
    These were the last e7 wagons and Toyota stopped production in 1987. They were also strictly for commercial duties :mrgreen:
    I like your wagon as well and I'm tempted to lower mine, but this ol' girl still earns her keep lugging heavy goods around and I don't know how resetting the rear leaf springs will affect the maximum loading capacity.
    Regards.
