2003 Toyota Corolla T-Sport breaking

Recommended Posts

If you've seen my project* thread you may have seen this fine beast.

Bought by me in July to donate it's engine to a MK3 MR2. It passed an MOT and was pressed into use pending it's fate, that is now upon us.

Everything available apart from the engine, box and driveshafts.

Rolling shell available if you're quick

Pics from when I got it, it still looks the same, just a bit dirty.

Wheels are good but tyres aren't great before anyone asks.

Hello! Sorry, been away all day today but will have a look tomorrow and see if I can get your bits off.

The project thread covers lots of old rammel, the MR2 appears about 20 pages in.

 

The black one we originally bought was too good to strip apart so we bought another one to do the conversion on with a more broken engine.

 

Conversion is just starting but it's a well documented thing to do. Can't wait to get it on the road!

Hi Dome , thank you for looking at the bits for me , no rush , totally at your convenience. Message me when you like . I will read the project thread mr2 with interest , I really am surprised about a corolla engine being fitted in a mr 2 , sounds great . Hopefully after reading the thread I will understand why you are doing this conversion . If I have any questions I will post up . Thanks Justin .

Corolla has a 190bhp* vvtli engine while the MR2 only ever got the 130 vvti.

I've seen vvtli mr2s but only as prize cars in Gran Turimso 2!

 

*Toyota were generally optimistic here. 170bhp isn't unusual, even when they were fairly new and being developed by the aftermarket.

Not the biggest possible purchase, but I need a fuel cap if it’s the original one...

 

This I've kept, if you still need it drop me a PM

I did manage to get the fuel flap release but not the A/C button I'm afraid

 

The other bits I've kept if anyone needs them are

 

5x Alloys with legal but not great tyres

4 Calipers

Front and rear lights.

 

If anyone needs anything that went on the shell let me know and I'll pass you my mates details. i'm not sure how long it'll be around though.

      The scrappers offered me £150 for this, but so far I haven't had the heart to see it crushed. It's a great little car, fairly low mileage and drives brilliant. I got it from a family member, ran it for a year and had great fun with it.
       
      It's a runner. MOT expired. Last time it had an advisory for a rusty sill. Doesn't look that bad to me but I haven't poked it too hard. Starter motor doesn't always engage but the last time it was tried it started first turn of the key. Starter motor aside, everything works apart from one wheel has a slow puncture.
       
      In my ownership it had new front tyres, and new speakers in the doors. I even fitted some Eibach sport springs and a new set of KYB shock absorbers. It handles brilliant and at the time I was toying with the idea of entering some Autosolo events in it. That never happened, but it's still a fun cheap little thing to thrash around.

      My attempt at living a shite free life has failed. Trawling e bay/ gumtree again etc but I thought I'd put out a wanted ad here. I've been browsing the for sale threads, but is there anything your thinking of moving on and would like to keep in the fold and have a hassle free sale? I'd consider anything but something fundamentally ok with a bit of MOT would be great. There is a bit of a strange condition- unusually I'm free this Wednesday and rarely at all other times- so being able to collect during the day this Wednesday would be perfect.

      Going to try this on here before the fun that is eBay or similar.
       
      My mum has recently replaced her trusty old SportKa with a newer 500 and currently it’s just sat in the garage.
       
      It’s only done 38k with I think mum being the third owner plus a very large file of bills. As you can see from the MOT history ‘a lot’ of miles have been done in the last few years....! Has the leather interior, an aftermarket Bluetooth kit, Air Con that works and four good tyres plus working remote key.
       
      It has had some attention by a welder in the past but the filler area is solid and other than a few obvious bits on the sills and corners of the rear bumpers is in nice condition.
       
      If anyone is interested please let me know. I’m back there later this week so can look at the paperwork or anything else on the car in more detail.
       
      She’s looking for about £750-800.
       
      Car is currently SORN and located in deepest Lincolnshire (near Spilsby).

      Copied over from Shite In Miniature...
      Note for future reference...  I've decided most of my Matchbox (-sized) cars can go.  It's a vast collection,   Most have been repainted at least once - by me, obviously.  My eyes and hand aren't good enough to do them again.  I've got way too many to list so ask if there's something you want and if I've got it, we can do a deal.  Most will be 50p each plus postage, so it'll make sense to build up a parcel.
       
      I thought it best to do this, then I'm not clogging up the main thread.  This could well go on for months.
