Hi Tommy and Tom. I have never seen a Tercel in Vietnam before.

Well done on your restoration of the car. Good job!

I was thinking that maybe the best place to get parts (unless you have relatives in the USA) is the Philippines as there seems to be a few Tercels there. Good luck!

I found her on the street and after bring her back, I do re-paint and restored the whole engine. But the previous owner has built the transmission with case crushing so bad. Last two week I done my first ride with her then the transmission were broken 4 shafts. I am looking for this in VN but found nothing.

Last week in been to Cambodia and I found so many surprise in there: in Cambodia they have alots of spare parts of new models auto :D not old and classic. And now I am looking for this in Craigslist :D

He has another post in the parts board stating its a five speed. The four and five speeds did share a common bellhousing/differential assembly, so thats encouraging.

Tercel in VN is rare. All were imported. Mine imported from US (Engine marked with 3A-C).

that is such an awesome job, particularly in your location. looks so retro cool, one I think would never expect to find a vintage Tercel in such nice condition in your part of the world.

Very well done.
