1981 Toyota Corolla Liftback

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.

  1. When we were in high school, my friend drove this car and I had a 1981 Datsun, which was very similar. Both of us had them in that bright orange-brown color.
