Great proportions and center caps, but having owned so many 1980-82 Corollas, I'd be hard pressed to find a reason to choose one of these instead. Are they non-existant today because of quality, or just a smaller starting population?

It's amazing how much of an accomplishment it can be to retain four plastic trim pieces. I wonder how many 80s cars we've posted with that achievement?

Flesh colored econobox....love that tag, LOL.
GLC sedans are rare as hell, wagons even rarer.

Also known as 323 here in Europe.

I had one (fastback) about 5 years and basically only major problem was rust.

And when you live in area which uses plenty of road salt 6 moths every year, there's not much you can do about that.

I had Nissan Sunny (-89) after this and not much difference: Reliable basic transportation offered by both: Cheap spare parts and not too bad fuel consumption either.

I know this is random but I really like this Blazer in this older GLC post:

The 'flesh colored econobox' rabbit hole is one of the more rewarding journeys you can take on this site.

thanks for the acknowledgment, anon. we put a lot of work into those tags and always wonder if readers know to make use of them.

glad to know you "get" it.

Nice to see one of these 81-85 FWD GLCs... but not as good, as seeing a 77-80 RWD one.

The hatchbacks were like the 80-83 Toyota Starlets... nice platform for a rotary swapped sleeper.

The RWD wagons were just as COOL... I think they ran from 78-85?? Not certain.

The wagons WERE RWD... which makes sense if you load up the rear. Earlier sedans (not sure which year they changed) were RWD also. You don't see these hardly ever -- wasn't a big seller compared to corollas etc.

Oh, there's a wagon on here too... cool.

These are images of my car. I have had it for about four years now. It is a 1984 Mazda GLC Deluxe.

Please for the love of christ don't get rid of it. I will drive 3000 miles from New York to buy it. I probably won't return though as I love the Pacific Northwest.
