I think it was Motor Trend that called it Street Racer because you could race it on the street all you wanted and no one would ever notice.

SURELY you are not referring to the Towering Tercel SR5 !

Actually, shouldn't our cars have been called the " SR6 ? "

Advance your timing just short of ping...be prepared to wind it up to 3-4K a lot...and the car will move fairly fast...at least it seems so.

Nice thing about the 3AC is it's ability to wind up without vibration. Still say it was a candidate for the formula T racer at one time.

"I always thought it was an Asian reverse piggyback on the German designation of really hot cars as " RS, " for "RennSport," or "Racing." "






Hmm, hope so. My current "Favorite Car EVER" is the Audi RS4, which recently trumped the previous long time champs BMW M5 and 911 Turbo.

Heck RS4's only one number away from SR5.. Coincedence?

Actually that article predated the "Towering Tercel SR5" At least the 4WD wagon we have. I think it referred to the first Corolla Tercel, the one you couldn't drive if you are over 5'9".

Now lets see the NZ MARKET SPECIFIC sales brochure and, if possible, the matching accessories catalogue.

My tercel:: 1985 SR5 100% original

Im certain it was never marketed in NZ, they would have just imported the JDM 'AL25 Sprinter Carib AV-11'
NZ had heaps of great JDM imports that Aus never got.

Wanna bet?

I uploaded two pics of an NZ model range brochure from 1986 that I bought on eBay, during the pandemic before it was snatched up, and in it on the non-cover page it shows a silver 4wd Tercel at the bottom. Totally NZ market and definitely not a Carib because I know the difference between the two

The only thing is that the seller, a gentleman from Australia, had it returned to him because of the pandemic but promised to send it to me when the pandemic was over

Though yes, they did import many Caribs as well. You would be correct about only that

Also, what's with the 'SR' series engine? Internal Toyota thing or is it an Aussie thing?
It was a technology Toyota of AU had used when making the AU 3A-C engine, just like Toyota of JP used LASRE (Lightweight Advanced Super Responsive Engine) a d sometimes PegaSUS (Precision Engineered Geometrically Advanced suspension) etc.

Hey drafting3d, this was the rear of the brochure I sent those two pages for:



Now do you believe me when I prove you wrong about your denying the existence of an NZ Tercel 4WD?
