Hey there guys and gals, My first car was a ke25 that I did a chicken wire and bog job on, and always wanted to restore it properly when I was all grown up. My dad sold it to a farmer who's kids trashed it and tipped out down a tomo I picked this up a few years ago (now that i'm all grown up) and the restoration began..... She's now fully stripped. And I've since collected a bunch of rare parts (ke25 and JDM TE27) and am waiting for the weather to improve so I can make a trip to Rototua and have the shell dipped. Plans are for a 20V Blacktop 7age with T50, Ae86 front shocks & brakes, Ae86 rear end with LSD and possibly repsol orange..... I'm pretty much a mechanical noob with limited experience so i'll do what I can and will have some pro's help along the way...... Any help from some seasoned Oldschool pro's would be much appreciated Discussion thread here //oldschool.co.nz/index.php?/topic/49950-alasdairs-1974-ke25-corolla/
Some of you may have seen these pics already on rotahavik, but I thought I'd stick them up here too for the lovers of oldschool rollas. Here are some pics of my baby, 1977 Corolla SR. Unfortunately I had to sell her so I could go travelling overseas for a couple of years with the missus This is how she looked when I first got her. Pretty mint, with a few tiny rust spots and about 3 shades of orange. Here are a couple of progress shots during the strip down and rebuild. And here is what she looked like after a respray, reupholster, lowering, new exhaust, tints, electric windows, heaps of little bits and pieces. Ran out of time and money to repower her, so had to make do with Toyotas mighty 1166cc of grunt. Ha ha. Seriously tho she ran mint, never skipped a beat. Sold here to a friend of a friend, secure in the knowledge she will be well looked after.
