15k: Honda S2000 Power: 1986 Toyota Corolla GTS hatchback AE86

 The Toyota Corolla GT-S AE86 is the closest thing you'll find to an 80s JDM legend this side of something like a Skyline.  The AE86 was featured in something called Initial D, which according to wikipedia is a manga (Japanese comic book) but it also morphed into anime, cartoons and even arcade video console.  Regardless of Japanese pop culture fame, the AE86 is going to be a collectible someday (if it isn't already), even if the original drivetrain has been tossed aside for something from a Honda.  Find this 1986 Toyota Corolla GTS hatchback AE86 with Honda S2000 power offered for $15,000 CDN ($13,783 USD at time of printing) located in Saint-Lazare, QC, Canada via kijiji.ca.   Tip and translation from Jeff B.




I am just dangerous enough with the French language to read and understand it, but not really good enough to converse or translate, but tipper Jeff B included the following handy translation.

  1. This is a beautiful car with a great selection of gear to make it haul some major butt and feel like a fantastic drivers car! Would love to test drive it and it has to be such good fun even at low speeds with that classic chassis. I would have a hard time spending that kind of cash when I know I could buy/build a much faster LS1T56 swapped FC rx7 for the same or less.

  2. Very nice build! Not cheap, but probably great fun.

    As usual the automated translation delivers a few clangers. I especially raised my eyebrows at: "wooden frame rail shock tower". In fact, the original text is telling us that the floors, frame rails and shock towers were rebuilt by a body shop.

    Anyway, my real question is where the heck are all these Honda S2000 drive trains coming from? I hardly ever see an S2000, and the ones I do see are nicely kept, and not likely to become organ donors any time soon. Does anyone have any insight into the question?

    1. I was just thinking the same thing. After all, if you wanted a nice-looking, lightweight body to wrap around a f20c, what's so wrong with the Honda body? Plus its a convertable!

    2. There are plenty of S2000 drivetrains out there for the buying. Easy to spin out an S2000 and damage the frame enough to total out by insurance.
