The TE72 Corolla has achieved a near-legendary status among Japanese nostalgics, regarded by many to be as classic as the Datsun 510. And it's easy to see why: handsome, crisp 3-box styling, rear wheel drive, and fairly good performance, especially for a basic economy car. This Corolla exhibits the later front end with two square lights; earlier cars had quad circular lights. By far the most common body styles were the two and four door sedans, along with the wagon; the two-door fastback, coupe, and liftback are much rarer today. This liftback has some of my favorite factory rims: the SR5 styled steelies.
