Found this car for sale. Hopefully the guy still has it. I tried calling and left a message. I was wondering if anyone can tell if this is a SR5 or a GTS. If it is a real gts, I'm going to buy this bitch asap!! I think it may be b/c of the interior seats, then again I'm not too familiar on how to tell them apart by like the front or anything.

Heh, I think you'll find that typical of most cars. Any MY was as likely to be built the previous calender year as not.

my dads older friend is selling his 88 corolla gts sr-5 with a 4age for 850 and get this it has 85,xxx, it needs minor work like new paint and some small chips and dings being its a older car, he has owned the car since 94, he has the car sitting in his back yard for months, i had interest in it, but really want a newer model car, my dad said its there when ever i want it, its a close family friend. still debating.

you can have mine for 4k, but you have to pick it up . it needs paint job. it has new carpet, new speakers, interior is decent. needs heater cables. no a/c, mx73 wheels and rear springs, new bushings, strut tower bars, electric fan, no sun roof, LSD that still works.

Whoa, someone explain the diff between sr5 and gts to me please?

IIRC, sr5s have a 4ac? engine, and drums in the back, gt-s has a 4age, discs, and some other things. I know there is a thread somewhere telling the differences.

Some GTS came with LSD rear end. The interior is has better seats. If you buy one, don't settle for a GTS conversion. It for some reason doesn't hold up its real value unlike a real GTS.

ok,
gts
4.33 rear end
4age
adjustable seats
leather wheel (sometimes)
discs
differnt tranny bellhousing
diff driveshaft and fueltank
sweet decals
some newer ones had painted bumpers
I think thats it.

Why would the bellhousing be different?

Its both on a 4A block with the starter on the same side under the exhaust.

the clutch slave cyl is opposite on the sr5s, why i have no idea.

slave cylinder is on opposite side because teh exhaust is on the opposite side.
4age = crossflow head. 4ac is not.
ALL gts came with painted bumpers and a lower lip
MOST early gts have gts interior, some LATE gts had gts interior, some had sr5 interior.
some sr5's came with an adjustable seat in the front.
lots of little stuff.
