Well, the tinkering with the Civic has come to an end. Enter my first real project car.

A 1979 Toyota Corolla SR5 Liftback from New Mexico.

I don't think there are very many of these cars kickin' around Atlantic Canada, if there are they're probably pretty rusty by now.

It runs and drives, I drove it home today and stored it for the winter.

First order of business is to remove the tranny again, needs a bearing in 5th gear and a couple seals. (it was previously replaced with a tranny from an '82)

Anyone know where to start looking for parts for one of these?

If I can save the money over the winter, bodywork and a paint job would be great for the spring. Then some stuff for MVI and maybe have it out next summer!

Down the road..... who knows!? Will a supra engine fit? 8)

Now to satisfy all the picture junkies.....

ImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImage

Yes, someone did a VERY crude job of adding a sunroof.....

Excellent! I've long liked those Liftbacks but haven't seen one in years upon years.

Looks like you have your work cut out for you with that interior...

Thanks for the comments guys *cough*jaison*cough*

Yeah, the dash could be a tough one for sure. Pretty tough to find a replacement I would think.

Seats..... I'm thinking leathers from an MR2 my bolt in.... time will tell I guess!

Hey.... I said I didn't want a Civic Hatch with an LS/VTEC in it :lol:

Plus, this thing's got a HEMI in it! hahaha

You're welcome to come check it out anytime buddy. Maybe I'll get it on the road next summer.

2jz FTL


stick to something easily maintainable. and a motor with parts which will be readily available, for many years of reliability. like a hi-comp AE92 4AGE, or even AW11 4AGZE.

heck if you're feeling daring, go 3SGTE. stock with boost and 220 ponys... should throw that ol' liftback around quite easily

Are you on drugs... lol 2JZ is one of the best stock motors ever built, and is ridiculously strong. They can handle 600whp reliably on stock internals, and parts not readily available... you are comedy

i didn't think he was trying to build a monster out of an sr5.

i'm not talking about the best and the biggest and the most. i'm talkin about easy to maintain and parts you can find in a boneyard if you don't want to buy everything brand new.

have fun finding spare 2jz parts just lying around nova scotia's junkyards.

Now that is an interesting project. I got a buddy who is working on a 1977 corolla. He have a 3TC engine in, and built a turbo setup using a Holley 650cfm marine carburator.

That is interesting..... Turbo'ing a carburated (sp?) engine! There won't be anything serious happening engine-wise with mine anytime soon. But of course I'm open to the idea of building a monster sometime in the future! :D

1JZ = $1900... 280 hp
2JZ = $2900... 320 hp

in a car that came with 75 hp! HaHaHa

yeah but he had to do hella lot of custom work (injection fuel pump, fuel pressure regulator, a lot of timing modification, and more much, dunno the detail) and he've send his carburator to puerto rico to get it modded specificly to go with big boost on it.. his carburator is suposed to be strong enough to handle 60psi of boost! :shock:

normally people build things to handle HP amounts not PSI amount, 20psi on a GT40R is a LOT more air/ hp then 20 PSI on a GT28R

I guess it mean the amount of internal pressure the carburator can handle before it crack, blow gasket, leak or else... carburator are build for engine that will suck their air (NA engine) so he had to get his carbu modded to suit a turbo'ed application. anyway, I'm not a pro in carburator, but trust me, the guy know what he is dooing.

Since I'm gonna have to eventually decide on a color to paint this beast, figured I'd do a little photochoppin'

Some budget wheels and window tint while I was at it too.

ImageImageImageImage

Anyone got some color suggestions? Not something with 17 different pearls, etc. that's going to cost $1000 / L. :lol:

What, you don't like the original baby blue? :D I love those wheels on it.

Of those four colours presented I prefer the white. However, I say Avocado for the win. :)

The baby blue isn't exactly original. It was a cheapo paintjob at some point in it's life down south. I think the original color underneath was more of a dark blue / greyish kind of color.

Yeah they're not a bad wheel. I checked out another restored 70's corolla last night in New Glasgow and he had them on his. I hadn't even thought of them. And it looks like Coveys has a set, and they're cheap! FTW!

That green isn't too bad. I may have to try and re-create that in photoshop when I get home tonight. See what it looks like.

This is officially my new favorite project thread!

Old bizarre looking Corolla hatch = thumbs up!

I've always liked the idea of jamming a 2jz into a little 70's Corolla, but if you're an old school sort of fella, I'd go the 3tc turbo or sidedraft carb route. :D

With a little fabrication, there's likely a large number of bizarre swap possibilities for a little RWD car like this...... like a junkyard 5.0L ?? :lol:

I think black or a gunmetal/gray colour like this http://www.worldofstock.com/slides/TRC2004.jpg would look great with those wheels.

Oh, and I must say, I think it's awsome your working on a car like this, it's refreshing to see something unique. I would almost keep it as period correct looking as possible, just with a little badass-ness thrown in hahaha.

Thanks man. It should definitely be interesting that's for sure.

Gunmetal / Grey isn't a bad idea at all! Definite possibility. Lotsa time to decide though.

Roof rack = Nay

Fender Mirrors = Probably Nay as well.

2-tone isn't a bad idea.... I always liked 2-tone yellow and black.....

Precisely! 8) Weld some wheels on your toolbox & get down here! :lol: I know, I know.... it's not a Honda.....

Full body job and paint gotta happen first...... then we'll see about saving up the $3000 for a 2JZ.

You're gonna need more than that, you still need to put it in.

LOL. Yeah, no doubt.

Would still be able to get some decent power out of one of those too.

400lb-ft of torque...
After 1 launch you would twist the chassis so bad you would never again drive with all 4 wheels touching the ground.

:lol: I hear yah on the empty pockets. Kinda been hemorrhaging money all summer, buying a house and getting married!

And my washer is now in about 100 pieces spread over my basement floor, probably easier to buy a new one than put it back together! haha.
Well, that, and I haven't gotten it completely apart yet or figured out what the problem is......
