A Collection Japanese Classics from Matt

This collection of cars comes from Matt C who writes: You've done them for vans and land yachts of this period - here's a round up of Japanese econoboxes from the late '70s and early '80s, many in better shape than these have any right to be.  What could be better than a collection of Japanese econoboxes on a Thursday afternoon?


Today's quartet of quintessential Japanese econoboxes comes from the Atlanta area craigslist and is evenly balanced with two Hondas and two Toyotas...it just needs a Subaru, Mitsubishi, Suzuki and Mazda to be complete [ed CFlo: hey Vince, don't forget everyone's favorite car-building truck company... Isuzu!!1!]


First up is this 1976 Toyota Celica offered for $6,000.  The seller claims that it is "in great shape" (reminds me of the old comedian line: I am in shape...round is a shape) and "runs good."  It features a manual transmission and claimed one owner means it probably comes with an interesting story.


If hatchbacks are your thing, this 1977 Toyota Corolla SR5 Liftback offered for $3,000 seems to be a decent deal.  The car has been in the South its entire life, but it does have a few spots of surface rust and will need a battery and/or starter soon.  Otherwise, it is said to run/drive well.


Moving into the 80s, we've got this 1981 Honda Civic with 4-speed manual offered for $5,500. According to the seller, it has been repainted, all seats reupholstered, new carpet, new battery, new tires, complete tune-up, freshly rebuilt carburator, etc. all within the last year. If the paint is a quality job (and not from a 24 hr spray 'n' pray) this could be a nice car to drive around for a few years and you shouldn't lose any money when you sell it.


Lastly is this 1981 Honda Accord LX (with a sweet set of rear window louvers), offered for $2,750.  It features a 5-speed manual gearbox, nice carpet, new seat covers, and a strong engine, but it could use a new paint job -- or you could just drive it around like a survivor.

  1. I was trying to find a representative from Mazda on the Atlanta CL, but nothing... Must have all gone to the crusher. Closer to my home best I could do is this 1986 323 for $375.

    A GLC would have been better but I couldn't find one for sale anywhere...

  2. I am amazed that these are all standards. I thought only automatics survived that long, in that condition. Great searching!

  3. Well searched, G. That Celica must come with a small person in the back to make mini-Mustang rumbling noises at that price. Brrrrrrummmm, brum, brum, brum....

    1. My '91 Miata was stolen 2 days ago in Ventura, CA. It's silver with a black top. I hope I get it back in one piece. Any help tracking it down would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

  12. Independent escorts are those who work for us and are available 24*7 all day and night for you. In other agencies, escort services are limited to some point of giving you pleasures. Where you have to pay extra for more after a limited period of time you choose while booking. Because of paying extra you have to go home alone again without having the full pleasure satisfaction. Unlike other agencies we are not like that, just like our services are available 24*7 you can ask or request our Jaipur call girls to give you more. By any chance, our escorts are not going to say no for you wants and desire.
