Another Mundane Monday post, this time featuring a slightly interesting Toyota Tercel Hatchback. The owner of this Tercel Hatchback sure is hauling a lot of items on that roof rack. This is the first generation of the Toyota Tercel to touch down in the great USA. Enjoy.
Info Via Wiki:
The Tercel was introduced in Japan in August 1978, Europe in January 1979 and the United States in 1980. It was originally sold as either a two- or four-door sedan, or as a three-door hatchback. A version marketed in parallel through a separate distribution network in Japan was called the “Toyota Corsa”. In the United States it was named the “Corolla Tercel”. Models sold in the US were powered by a 1452 cc SOHC four-cylinder engine producing 60 hp (45 kW). Transmission choices were either a four- or five-speed manual, or a three-speed automatic available with the 1.5 engine from August 1979 on.
In the Japanese market, the 1500 engine developed 80 PS (59 kW) at 5600 rpm, while the 1.3-liter 2A engine, added in June 1979, offered a claimed 74 PS (54 kW). In Europe, mainly, the 1.3 version was available, with 65 PS (48 kW).
