THIS CAR IS NOW SOLD, I WILL CONTINUE TO LEAVE THE SITE UP AS IT MAY PROVE USEFUL TO FANS OF THESE CARS, THANK-YOU
The car was repainted at time of sale to Black, however my poll shows that the official white "tofu" color was the highest pick of my poll. I recommend viewing my poll.
There has been numerous arguments regarding the differences between the AE85 and AE86 chassis's in my guestbook, so to clarify them I have included my explanation and sources to provide the facts. For those idiots who still think my car is an AE85 this will help your lack of education.
AE86 and AE85
SR5 and GTS
(What's the difference?)
You can check to see if the car is an AE86 by checking the firewall under the hood. (left side middle area) All cars with the same chassis design are an AE86, regardless of whether it is an SR5 or GTS model. The word Hachi-Roku means eight-six in japanese, whereas hachi-go means eighty-five. Both AE85's and AE86's were sold throughout 1985-1986. The main difference is in the chassis , NOT the model. In Japan the TRUENO and LEVIN were the two comparable models both sharing the AE86 and AE85 chassis. Even if the car year is an 1985, the chassis could still be an AE86. In the USA, the AE86 came in trims called the SR5 and GTS. The GTS was basically the trim level which included the 4A-GE DOHC engine. The driveline from transmission to the rear differential was different and included a lower 4.3 final gear ratio in the 5 speed transmission. The SR5 was 4.1, as well as the few AT equipped GTS. The GTS package also included rear disc brakes, higher grade interior trim, and body color front bumpers. Cosmetically the GTS also were trimmed with larger side moldings, Twin Cam 16 decal, and rear spoiler. SR5 versions had drum brakes and black bumpers as door moldings. US spec SR5 though designated AE86, were equipped with standard AE85 rear axles and drum brakes as well as interior trim. 4A-GEC is a specific USA California Emissions Certified versions. 4A-C is a SOHC 1.6 liter engine certified for USA emissions, and is SIMILAR to the 1.5L SOHC unit in Japanese AE85 models.

Hot AE-86 you got there.
can i buy this car?
how much money did u put into the ae86?
Nice hachi-roku. Contrary to some people's beliefs, there is no such thing as a North American AE85. They don't exist. You cannot accidentally buy a Hachi-Go like Itsuki in Initial D, unless you move to Japan. The SR5, however, does share many parts with the AE85, but is still considered an AE86, because AE85 and AE86 are the designations given to the different chassis. You should consider swapping rear ends with a junked Corolla GT-S hatch, upgrading the suspension, and swapping in a 4A-GE as well in a carbed setup (Less costly then replacing fuel tanks, and running new fuel lines and such, though if you want to really go overboard, a 4A-GZE, which is supercharged is even better), and possibly switching from automatic to a manual if you want this car to truly back up the look it has, which I have to admit is pretty good. Check out the TRD spoiler though, it actually looks a bit more natural on the bodies of these AE86 hatchbacks then that one does. Very subtle, but noticable nonetheless. Overall, I like it, just a couple rough spots.
