As many of you guys might know about these Sedan Models whether 2 or 4 door, 1.8 or 1.6 certain parts are hard!

1. It's damn near impossible to find mint rain gutters or chrome hood trim.
2. Door & trunk OEM seals are hard to find.
3. Etc.

I have at least seen the 3TC & 4AC Enginges are plentyful but it would be nice to find the totaly complete for direct replacements.

What do you think? Is It me or is it hard to find Interior or Exterior parts in mint new condition? If it isn't hard enough to find somebody parting out their car which is Sad to see another Yoda phasing out of existance!

Like that old commercial where the Indian has a tear coming down about litter but I think it's really about disapearing Toyotas, Lol!

I wanted to get one for my daily driver, but could not find one that was not a total beater. The newest ones are what, 27 years old? Getting old and rare.

I hear you on that! There are quite a few here on the East Coast but they're going for damn near up to $7,000 a pop! I have seen a TE71 for sale for $900.00 but it needs some body work plus I'm not into Hatch backs at the moment. But for they're age they just scream out Old School which is rare but will live on forever, once they're done right and not butchered with a roll cage, extra gauges and stuff that just kill the look.
The worst and ugliest thing to insult the looks of a Corolla is to remove the Bumpers and cruise around like that.

I've looked for 1 too. the only one I could had a blown 5 speed and somebody cut the top half off, RETARDS must have been on some major drugs to do that. it was a 82 2 door coupe really pissed me off. I do see them driving around all the time I guss nobody wants to sell those things.

I feel your Pain! Only if some of these owners just know how rare they're becoming maybe they would stop beating them and molesting them! If your looking for them you can find them on Craigslist on the East Coast where there is still a bunch of them ranging in price and condition. I'm glad I haven't seen the raped roof off of that Corolla! That's just beyond stupid if they wanted a Sun Chaser they should of found 1 like the 1 I saw for sale in New Jersey!
