Rotary Swapped: 1981 Toyota Corolla

The 4th generation E70 Toyota Corolla was the last RWD platform that extended across the entire Corolla lineup (the AE86 "Hachi-Roku" coupe remained RWD for the next generation, but within a few years everything was front-drive, understeering, no-fun, appliance-city).  The Corolla was a simple economy car with no particular designs on world domination, but it was cheap to buy, cheap on fuel, cheap to insure, but most importantly: it was reliable....which we are going to throw out the window like a used microwave with this next feature, because it is now powered by the spinning thing known as a rotary. Find this 1981 Toyota Corolla with rotary swap offered for $11,000 in Philadelphia, PA via craigslist. Tip from FuelTruck.

  1. Two things you will almost never see...

    1) Skinnies on a Corolla
    2) Typically you lose space under the hood after a swap, not gain it

  2. Turn down the bass i cannot hear the Wankel

  3. I wonder if the deal includes his "Beethoven's Greatest Hits" CD....?
