    Toyota Starlet KP60 1981 (Sakura pics)

    My girlfriend and i recently bought a new little project. It's a 1981 Toyota Starlet with a small 1000cc engine.
    106000km on the clock but apart from the wheels all original. It needs some TLC but overall it's in really good condition!

    Needs a new rear bumper (I found one already and it's on it's way!), interior needs some attention and some parts need to be resprayed.
    We are currently trying to figure out what we want to do with it after everything is fixed.

    cute little toy. They don't make those like they used to. RWD and all.

    Drive it until it falls apart. Then fix it up again.

    Great find!!
    Love the nosejob on the early ones - has much more character than the facelifted version.
    Also cool colour and love those small period alloys. 8)

    Back in the mid 90's my mom had a plain white Starlet 1.0DL from '83 just as I got my driving license. Used to always steal the keys for it in the winter, as I didn't want to ruin my freshly restored BMW 2002. :wink: In all honestly, the little Starlet was also a right hoot to drive in the snow...!! :P

    We still had to sort out some paperwork before we could finally get the license plates. Finished everything today and plates should be in tommorrow :mrgreen:.Even with the limited power the RWD is a lot of fun to drive. I was amazed how many heads this little car turns when on the road!

    The driver's seat is getting a new piece of leather put in and we'll have it back by friday. I will posts pics soon

    We got the seat back yesterday and I'm quite pleased with the results. Some thorough cleaning of the interior scheduled for today and then we can put it back in :mrgreen: .

    Looks like the previous owner hauled chickens in this car.




    Clean again.




    The rear bumper was in pretty bad shape when we bought the car so I managed to source a 'new' rear bumper in Germany. Looks good but I need to find some new bumper extensions.
