Looking for a Toyota Corolla track car? No, we’re not talking about a GR Corolla, but a 1980 Corolla that’s been stuffed with a Lexus 1UZ V8 engine.

According to the seller, the car “fires up and runs and drives great,” and “stays cool and mechanically is good to go.”

The lengthy list of modifications includes equal-length headers, Howe radiator, T3 coil-overs, Kodiak three-piece wheels, adjustable control arms, AiM dash and an ATL fuel cell.

Located in Orlando, Florida, this 1980 Toyota Corolla is listed at $9900.

Damn! 
 

I wish they had left some of the dash/interior for vintage factor, but I love it!

Same.  The interior is now crappy compared to the exterior. I do love the car though :)

Cheap RWD cars. Why must all the new stuff be FWD

Just your average FB marketplace seller who happens to be a professional driver: https://www.formulad.com/drivers/chelsea-denofa

I'm sure he only drove it to the grocery store :)

kinda disappointed to not find videos of this thing being hooned. An uncorked 1UZ has a classic muscle car sound.
