Another AE86 Coupe Build - Take 2

Postby truenorican » Tue Aug 29, 2017 7:15 am

I've own a couple of AE92s and previously picked up an AE86 SR5 shell but gave up on converting to a GTS because the prices for the individual parts are ridiculous. It was cheaper for me to buy a running true GTS than finish converting the SR5.

I sold off the shell and whatever parts I could from the failed conversion and now I have this 86 which is a better starting point. It does have rust issues but oh well. When I purchased this 86 it came with LSD, BC Coils, T3 Panhard Bar, T3 Traction Brackets for $4,100 in December 2016. It also came with a bunch of extra parts which I sold a few and made an extra $350, so the car was about $3,750. It only came with one racing seat, so I went ahead and purchased two clean GTS seats from the PO's friend for $100.

I was trying to sell the GTS since I have to pay for a separate garage and no time but everyone wants to trade or low ball. I may be renting a house soon with a garage. So, I'm a just keep it for now and work on it as I can.

Here is how she's sitting right now:

I had to purchase the rear BC coilover height adjusters because for some reason, it didn't have them installed.

Looks like a very solid start!

I vote keeping it. The chances of finding a solid GTS for under 5k these days are VERY VERY slim.
