Toyota 700/Corolla/Corona 1963-94 from our 2020 Japanese Classic & Performance Car Guide

Australia’s vehicle market changed forever once the Corolla and Corona took charge. Thousands sold annually from 1967 and into the 1980s but apathy during recent decades saw them dumped in huge numbers.

Despite scarcity, early Corollas still generally cost less than $10,000 and Coronas are half that amount. Among the versions already making their mark in the collector market are KE15 Sprinters at around $20,000 and the later AE86 version.

Australian-spec AE86 can achieve $35,000 and modified cars might reach $50,000. Add to those some recently-arrived Truenos - imports from Japan - and the market for feisty two-door Toyotas is well supplied.

For those wanting to spend $5000, the 1980s-90s SX and GTi Corollas are worth the search.
