Toyota Corrod’a (1984 AE86) Restoration Project

Around November 2016,  I noticed this car appear on a dealer site. Described as a long term abandoned vehicle it was best described as a rolling shell, well what’s left of it.  From the images and description it was easy to spot that the car was powered by a large electric motor. An offer was made and confirmed….

December 28th saw me heading down to the docks in Southampton with a friend to pick the car up on the trailer. This isn’t my first import but the feeling you have when you pull into the docks wondering how bad/good the car is going to be is always there.

After talking to the staff they sent me right to the end of the port to collect the car, turned the corner and there it was……. on its own strapped to a loading plate staring out to sea.

With this project I thought I would Vlog about the progression rather than write up with photos so please follow the story from the sites YouTube channel, first episode picks up from taking a look at the car fresh off the boat.
