Re: Lady ran a red turn signal. What to do now

Sorry for your loss of your Tercel and well written BTW.
Maybe try the Facebook page to see if someone has a parts car for sale or you can offload your wrecked car.

Re: Transmission compatability

you could ask on the Facebook page. some of the members there have 2wd auto and manual wagons and might be able to help you. I believe they will be the same as the wagon.

Re: 1986 Tercel 4WD Sweden restoration

Your car is looking great! well done! I saw the car below about 15 years ago in Stockholm. Did they only come in red in Scandinavia? You should do what I do with my Corolla 4wd and register it with a car wrangler for films and movies. I made about $3000 over a couple of years renting it out for the ...

You can use Monroe MA700s on the rear as an air shock. I kept the original springs on as it is firm enough as the Monroes take some of the weight.
