Hey everyone,
this is one of my old projects.
1981 Sr5 Corolla sport coupe(aka "ThePoupe")
About a year and a half ago i went to look at this car when i saw it on craigslist.
I wasnt able to work a deal so i had passed on this and bought the guys 1980 corolla instead.
i went back to see if the guy would budge on price,but it was too late and sold already.
A few months had passed,and then i saw an ad with no photos.
"81 sr5 corolla with louvers"
i had called the guy right away,
and asked him to describe the car and it was it!
i went to pick it up the next day.
a friend helped me tow it home.
it had a blown motor,so we pulled it and threw in my spare 3tc.
after i drove it around at stock height i hated it and thought it was the ugliest car ever lol.
I lowered it and put my ssr mk2s on it.
i drove it around and had a great time in it,but i started losing interest in my 82 wagon so i sold and shipped this to hawaii.
i miss it so much!but im glad it found a good home.
here are some photos of the car when i got it and i will post some more progress pictures.thanks for viewing :tu:

Very cool indeed!! 8)
Perhaps a tad too low, but that's probably just me getting old.
Retro-brown is of course the new black, so please keep her like that.
Just treat her to a 2T-G and a set of slim JDM bumpers, and you'll be rockin' one seriously cool ride... :tu:

Love the pic together with nfelge's TE51 btw. Nice couple...

Do you think you could/should swap the 75-79 TE 51 bumpers onto the TE72?

It would be a kinda low budget JDM bumper swap for the TE72.Gut and strip the rubber strips from the TE51 bumpers and tuck and smooth. :idea:

There a lot easier too get. :tu:

Oh and I still want to see a swapped 80 quad lighted SR5 TE72 Sport Coupe,with BMW lights. :tu:

Then a 85-86 Supra one piece upper and lower rear hatch spoiler modded to fit. :idea:

Thanks man,te72s are my favorite bodystyle.

I dont like the look of 3rd gen corolla bumpers.id rather keep the stock e7 ones.quadlights on a sportcoupe look awesome!
