The way I tell the difference from a ke30 and a te31 is from the front end. The tip of the hood is flat on ke30s, while on te31s they have a long arch to them, so over all the hoods are different. Im not sure but I also think the tail light trims are different, chrome for ke30s and black for te31. I might be wrong on everything I said, like it could just be year differences but at the end of the day you can look at the vin. Thats the only way you can be sure.

The ke30 was sold in the us but arent very common. And like most old school Japanese cars they are all rare since most have rusted through, and though the ke30 is more rare than the te31 I don't think I would pay a chunk of change over the te31. Both cars got the option of chrome and/or black.

I asked you this in another forum, but what year is this ke30?

Are there any other differences? I have a KE30 with the 1.2L and 4-spd manual, and had planned on a complete rebuild with a drivetrain swap. Would it be better to just leave the car stock?

Was it a grey one? There was a 1977 Corolla body posted on Craigslist here for a while. Already apart for painting, and had most of the trim and interior pieces to go with it. But no engine or tranny.

That sounds just like it. I had considered buying it to swap my motor and tranny into, but still contemplating just doing a complete restomod now.

That was a great score! Can't wait to see your build log for these beauties :)
