Unlikely Survivor: 1982 Toyota Tercel Corolla

This next car comes from tipper Matt C who writes: I don’t know how or why somebody managed to keep a 1982 Toyota Tercel in such good condition; most Japanese cars from that era would at least be showing some interior wear beyond the steering wheel, or faded or dinged paint. Plus, this one is an SR5 with a manual transmission, and period-correct rocker panel graphics. Find this 1982 Toyota Tercel Corolla offered for $2900 in Marietta, GA via craigslist.

fuel: gas 

odometer: 150000

I’ve moved out of the state, and its taking up space in the driveway. Open to trades and all offers, mainly looking for a boat, motorcycle, truck, or loud toys. 

Incredible condition for a 40 year old car. Minimal to zero rust, drives great, interior is next to new, one of the best of this age I’ve ever seen. Just fully serviced engine with under 200 miles. 

Brand new upgraded speakers, subwoofer, amp, and head unit with bluetooth that I’m not including in my price. Your gain my loss. 

Shoot me a text. Motivated buyer/seller.
