1978 KE35 Coupe. Built in the early ‘90’s to compete in Club Level Autocross and Hillclimb, proved a successful and reliable car. It was retired after about 15years of sporadic use and sat buried in the shed until recently…..
Engine is a 4AGZE 1.6L Supercharged unit sourced from a front cut early MR2 import back in 1992, it is stock apart from a larger inter cooler mounted to the front of vehicle, early type ignition, engine is strong with plenty of power.
DaviesCraig fan, engine never gets hot.
Gearbox is a standard T50 from a AE86 Sprinter, diff is a disc brake limited slip unit also from a Sprinter.
Heavy duty clutch fitted.
Suspension is Koni adjustable with coil over springs on the front. Koni rears and standard leaf springs. Larger front sway bar with rose joint adjustable lower control arms.
Brakes are AE86 Sprinter front and rear fitted with semi competition pads.
Interior has Race Seat, two four point harnesses fitted, fire extinguisher and steel bolt in roll cage. Battery fitted in boot with cockpit kill switch, tacho and shift light with gauges.
Body is in well above average condition for age, had a repaint when car was built. Has been used for motorsport, so there are various underbody scrapes and dings, but overall presents well and has spent most of it’s life in a shed if not competing.
When we pulled it out of the shed and decided to offer it for sale, a comprehensive refurb was undertaken (great lockdown activity!!) including but not limited to..overhaul brake callipers and new fluid, overhaul cooling system with new hoses, coolant and rebuilt radiator. New spark plugs and replace filters.
Rectify minor electrical issues. Brand new set of road tyres.
This represents a great opportunity to get into entry level motorsport with a reliable and sorted car with components you just can’t buy these days, yet is easy to drive and maintain.
Use this as is, develop further or change direction and go circuit racing. It could possibly be converted for road use but other than what you see, there is no original interior trim. Possibility for ClubRego.
Genuine enquires only please.
