    70's RHD Toyota Sprinter help!!!

    I can get my hands on this car but I can't seem to find any info of what exactly it is online so I need some experts in Toyotas to help me figure out what model it is, it says sprinter but looks very different than any other one I've seen.

    Owner is not 100% sure what year it is and he tells me its a corolla sprinter (makes sense?). I wonder if it's a model that was never even produced or kind of a 1 of car.

    Thank you

    Coupe would be worth a whole lot more, If its in the states and registered I would say 4-7k depending
    on how much you have to work with.

    Looking at the rear badge, does it say 1400 or 1600?
    Either way it makes it a TE 40 or 60 series depending on age.

    1400 is a T and 1600 is a 2T engine.
    The car could probably easily be converted to LHD using TE3 parts
    if you wanted to. Got a dash pic? and maybe one of the alu build plate
    on the firewall?

    imo Value would be depending on buyer seller agreement as allways
    Doubt youll find any to compare it to- sedan or coupe. havent seen pics of any outside of asia before

    In Japan....the Corolla line-up differ from the Sprinter line. Corolla is Corolla , Sprinter is Sprinter.

    Its like Corona and Carina models, they share the same chassis platform but differ in design. some parts interchangeable some are not.

    Here in the US that usually ruins the value of the car. :mrgreen:

    I see that it would ruin the originality value for sure
    Not many like rhd cars here tho
    If it was in Norway I belive it would increase sales value but more importantly
    it would increase useability value - for me anyway
