This car is a head turner. Has LOTS of original parts!
Great shape, hough some obvious little dents and dings for its age. See above description for specifics on defects or pictures.I don't BS on selling cars, ou won't find any "surprises" when buying, nless I literally did not know about it. (Though sold "as-is", ince 33 years old.)Please ask if you have any questions, 'll answer to the best of my ability.
5 Speed Manual. Light blue, as been repainted I suppose from Midas, riginal color was a slightly darker blue it seems.Runs and drives great. 139,xxx miles on original engine. Transmission is in great shape, hifts well. (See defects above for only issue)NO CEL, OESN'T BURN OIL. DOESN'T OVERHEAT.
Definitely needs a little something done with carb by someone who knows them. I'm a college student and not a mechanic!Still runs and gets A2B no issues. Just could be better on efficiency and removing a slight delay.Carburetor was changed to a Weber-style downdraft. Will come with original carb but that had a leak around throttle / needs repaired.
Grill is complete with headlight doors, hough a little cracked in some places.All glass is good. Little scratch I just noticed on drivers window.Just had a fresh wash, olish and wax.& Will have oil changed before sale.
I average about 30 mpg from this in mixed driving.It's been treated very well, owever a carb is just not for me.It'd be a great car for someone who would want to fix up and go to car shows(I've had a lot of people inquire about it) or drop a new engine in and take it to the ring.Many of these cars are gutted, hough, o it'd be well worth it to keep it together.
The newer things on this car by me are:
  • Just replaced ball joint a couple weeks ago on driver's side. Mech said the passenger side appeared to be newer already.
  • Alignment was done with the ball joint (has a slight left pull they couldn't get out)
  • Brakes pads on both & passenger caliper on front.
  • New weber-style downdraft carburetor. It wasn't a proper fit, ut we had a customadapterpiece made. Will need some adjustments from someone who knows carbs.
  • 2 new tires (front), decent (rear).
  • U-joint.
  • New hoses.
  • Distributor cap.
  • Spark Plugs and Wires.
  • Oil changes every 4k.
  • Starlet leather keychain on rearview & Toyota lanyard
  • I have some receipts stuffed in the glovebox that will accompany the car.
  • As well as all little misc pieces in the two ashtrays, ouple extra gaskets, olts, tc, nything I find will go with. Toyota Jack, ome tools, tc.
  • Have ITM TIMING CHAIN KIT. Did not get around to installing. Will come with.

Previous Owner's Records:
  • Radiator I think was taken from a Geo Metro.
  • Back Louvre is Shadow brand. It looks great, ne screw missing. ($300+ pricetag on one of these guys)
  • Thermostat.
  • Radiator Hose.
  • PCV Valve.
  • New springs kit & hardware.
  • Wheel cylinders.
  • Toyota Mud Flaps.
  • Toyota Decal on wing window.
  • Pinstriping.
  • Undercoat.
  • Muffler / Exhaust.

Notes: Red Top battery does not come with. Will have a regular lead-acid battery when sold.I did not take the seat covers off in the photos. They're BAD underneath, nd I don't want to take them off.. Previous owner did not tend to the vinyl cracking and foam coming off at all. First thing we did was buy seat covers to prevent further wear. Would recommend replacement or reupholstering. Seat Covers will remain on car, ut Leather cushion on Driver's set also does not come with.
Will add more pictures or even videos on request. If you're local message me to set up a time to view it. It's still currently my DD.
Price is set high as I'd like to entertain all offers. This little thing has a lot of potential and is very hard to find as complete as this.
Would consider trades for a 90's Honda Civic or BMW hatchback or coupe. (Mini Cooper is also well liked if you have an early 00's and want to trade for some reason.) Manual trans ONLY. I have a running, ood looking vehicle and expect similar in offers. Thanks!!
