A Happy Mobile: 1982 Toyota Corolla Tercel

I knew someone (well, still know her, truth be told) who an almost identical car and it was remarkable for being unremarkable aside from the happy yellow paint. The car was totally gutless, but reliable and got its passengers to/from destinations without fuss, fits, or air conditioning. Today’s example is technically the smaller Tercel subcompact which means it has a front-longitudinal front-wheel-drive setup, but with sub 75 horsepower, it really doesn’t matter which wheel (if any) is driven. DT featured this car in 2001 when it was offered for $3500 in LA area. Find this 1982 Toyota Corolla Tercel offered for $4000 in San Fernando Valley, CA via craigslist. Tip from Rock On!
