Te72 quad rounders looked soooo good! Especially the wagons.

Those headlamps look far better than the aero lamps the local Corollas had.

Dry outside, wet inside. Mmmmmm. I loves me a nice, moldy car.

Very cool house behind. Nice complimentary colors going on in this photo.

Love this gen of 'Rolla. Great set of quad rounds.

odd to see in this configuration. stock suspension and steelies on a quad round car that hasn't been rusted or smashed to bits?

the orange color really highlights how manufacturers have succumbed to the sales appeal of boring color palettes these days. imagine a new corolla in anything other than your standard shades of beige. the cheap red/blue/green offerings with their factory standard orange peel does not inspire the same devotion that this car probably did in its original or subsequent owners.

who cares about NVH, wind noise, stability at speed etc... these boxes on wheels were probably perfectly acceptable means of transportation in their heyday. this guy gets points for keeping the original 5mph park benches but loses them for the roof rack, so in the end it's a wash. i'd love some shots of the engine bay and underbody to see if the climate has taken its toll there while sparing the exterior panels.

Had a dark blue one like this--sold it when it had 308,000 miles on it. Loved it!

The Toyota Camry hit the business sector without precedent for the year 1980 and it is still under creation till date. Be that as it may, right from its significance, there are numerous things that you might know truly think about the exquisite conservative Camry.

ben, how much might i expect to pay for one of these in pretty clean condition?

did they ever come with a stick shift?

Was this car available in the United States ?

@ Tony Piff---yes, they did come with a stick shift. We had a 5-speed dark blue one.

@ Sam Joseph--yes it was.
