    Toyota Corolla 1975 KE20 "Rally Rolla"

    Hey , I'm from norway so my english is not extremly good, some words is written wrong but i don't know better
    bought my first corolla yesterday, drove 4 hours to pick it up...

    got enough rust...

    interior is nice tho apart from the drivers seat and that the window on the dirver side wont go up the last 3 cm's...

    over mountain passes and by fjords, this is a tiny tiny lake tho

    unloading at home


    ... old , boring, smal, ugly.... needs some new paint , so i gave it some new paint under the hood


    ran out of the red paint that i was using so i want and grabbed the next red can ( another brand) and yeah... you can see the difference ( radiator cap)
    i also painted the fan cover black again and someone have polished the rocker cover

    rolla vs crown...


    thinking of stealing a 5R from one of our crowns and putting it into the rolla
    anyways.. painted the hood black going to place a bit "TOYOTA" sticker on the hood , white

    then i added some details to the hood...

    found out that it aint easy to install the hood by yourself...

    took off those and sanded them down, but i am currently out of paint...

    black or white? ( the covers that goes in the holes in the pic?

    fitted a better steering wheel, and it had an Awesome gear nob

    and there are soem advantages by living far away form other poeple on your own gravel road


    then i went online and orderd some stuff going to make it look like a rally car
    4 or those here

    fender mirrors

    fender flares

    and a huge toyota logo for the hood
    going to buy some extra lights to mount in the grill aswell
    got a lot of thing i want to do with it... firstly remove all the rust and let dad paint it ( he's the one that have painted the blue Crown in the pics above
    and finally a bit of driving, I'm NOT dissapointed with the power of the 1,2

    stay tuned for more
    got lots of plans

    iv also orderd a shit load of vintage rally stickers for 100 usd +++ i tihnk im going to get some extra lights and put infront of the gill, any other ideas to get it to look like a rally car ?

    looks good! I really like the last picture of you sliding around the corner. To look more like a rally car, I would say big fog lights, antenna, stickers, number, and lettering on your tires. Can;t wait for the next update!

    "old, boring, small and ugly" you say?

    Yes, no, yes and no.


    Oh and by the way, that is a beautiful Crown with the Corolla.

    Very nice work Indeed. the paint job looks great and the efforts show proudly. Are you going to install twin Carburetors on this engine aka 3K-BR or side drafts.

    To my eyes, I have to be honest and say that neither the alloys nor the front spoiler really gel with the rest of the KE20's styling, but the paintjob on the other hand is absolutely awesome!! :tu: Great work. I really look forward to seeing this one completed...

    thanks guys ! yeah, the alloys just came with my parts car, they're better than the originals hoping to get some Alleycat Rallye Special during the winter, the front spoiler was not my choice either, my front plate was so dented and ugly that i had to replace it, and then the frotn spoiler was already on the frontplate i got hold of.. but i dont mind, ill probly just destroy the spoiler while rallying anyways :lol:

    hmmm?

    engine bay needs some love

    loooving the interior, the bucket seats are soo comfy and suits me perfectly, the Luisi steering wheel has the right diameter and perfect thickness, not too much grip due to the lether but its goood. and the instrument panel working perfectly, extremly handy!
