View Full Version : Help me find an fx16

I have decided to sell my civic and buy another old toyota.

I would love an ae86 GTS but the yoboyz have driven the price so high it's ridiculous.

So I'm looking for a FX16 preferably a GTS or a 4 door Nova hatch. It needs to be factory fuel injected and have AC the AC doesn't have to work but it MUST be a factory AC car.

I'm open to other cool suggestions possibly a corolla wagon from the early 80s. But I want something that I can easily swap a 4age into since I have 2 of them sitting in my yard.

The FX16 is my first choice since it shares a ton of parts with my aw11. I could even swap wheels between the 2.

Fx16's are hard to find as well though. :(

My friend had a gts model and we swapped in a blacktop with ITB's.
Sweet cars if you can find one that hasn't been hammered to hell and back.

Ah...an FX16.

Back when I parted out my 72 ST in fall 2008, I considered buying an FX16. It was too rusty and ran like ass.

Fun ass cars though.

OK should I buy the sunchaser that is on ATL craiglist?

It looks like a great car on the outside no rust the engine bay looks clean.

It has no AC

The interior is ragged out. How hard would it be to find interior parts for an 81 celica? I'm assuming the sunchaser has the same interior parts as a regular celica.

This one has the 22r so it's an ST right? the GTs had the 22re right?

I had a Sunchaser years ago.

Neat little car. As long as there is no rust, I would say it warrants a closer inspection.
Is it complete? Interior parts you can refurb yourself mostly.
Same year celi front seats will be the same.
Rear seat is a bit odd (you'll see what I mean)
IIRC, the sunchaser didn't have any trim packages, but I am likely wrong.
Mine was 22R equipped as well.

fuel injection didnt show until 83 i think. Joe will know.

Hipster Lawrence
05-26-2010, 03:12 AM
It's not complete, he said when he bought it had no rear seat so he found one that "kind of fit". It has sparco seats in front which is kind of cool I don't really think I'd be restoring the car anyway Probably just enjoy it.

I dont know though the lack of AC is probably a deal breaker.

Id get it without a/c, but due to your location, I totally understand.
Send The Captain a link to it if you decide to pass on it, he might be into it.

There is an FX-16 GTS on club4ag. The owner was wanting 5000.oo for it but now has OBO.
I've been offered 2500.00 for my FX-16 with big port JDM 4age, but I love hurting people's feeling with it and it is cheeeeeeeep on gas. Buffalohunter7321

Yeah that one one c4ag is sweet but I'm looking for a daily and that thing has 10" wide wheels and no ac. I thought about buying it and using the BT and 6 speed in the mr2 but if I'm going to buy an fx16 I'm not going to pay ae86 prices.

http://forums.club4ag.com/zerothread?id=72097

What do you guys think? Almost all stock with working AC.

Could I get that paint stuff of the lights? Or do you think it looks good?

I like that. I would prefer a hatch, but for a coupe, it is nice.

AE86 coupes pop around here a lot, but rarely the hatch.

I'd rather have a coupe though. Just to be different because everyone has and wants the hatch.

Hipster Lawrence
05-26-2010, 11:24 PM
I actually like the coupe body style better. I think I'm going to buy this car, we've settled on a tentative price of $3300. I've asked the guy a million questions

It has LSD
One spot of rust on inside of drivers door
no leaks
PO said motor was rebuilt
new exhaust
4 year old paint that looks real good in pics
Needs a headlight bulb.

I could fly down there for 69 bucks and drive home on a tank and a half of gas.

What do you guys think?

ive got some input to check on with the guy

did he put an lsd in there, most kouki gts cars did NOT come with lsd. the only real way to check is look but you can find out usually by
1. checking the rear axle code on the firewall it should say 283 or something ending in 3
2. get under and look for the LSD oil only sticker on the rear end.

also what is the VIN number it must start with Jt2AE88xxxxxxx to be a GTS the sr5 models say JT2AE86xxxxxxx

just some stuff to look out for. If it does have LSD someone ordered it like that and its very rare. if this checks out id say GO for it cuz youll love that car to death.

Good luck on your hunt. The only FX16s (GTS) I see is with an old lady behind the wheel usually. There is a super rare Nova SS running around town...black with the red pin stripes. I had offered the lady $2500 for it, and she denied me :(

Even if he's wrong about the lsd I'm probably going to jump on it. Even a mk1 that clean is worth almost 3300.

That FX is pretty clean it seems and you could probably get it a little cheaper.

There is always the option of an AE71. Some have AC and its RWD.

Man that is sweet but it's just a regular fx not an fx16. It would take a lot of work to swap the 16v over.

05-28-2010, 04:51 AM
i still say get a 3rd gen hatch, you can usally find one in very good shape for 2k or less, for some reason air flows in these cars really well, which is one of the reason i havent really bothered to fix the a/c in mine. Check celica-gts.com. Or if u want more power you can get a celica supra

fuel injected toyotas started with the 4me in the U.S anyway, so that was the 78 or 79 celica supra and cressida, R series got fuel injection in 83, A series was later, say mid to late 80s.

I got something better for all you FX lovers! It looks sweet! Too bad I don't need another car...or it wouldn't be around anymore! :P

if its sold already...here's what you missed:

all for $1000

doesn't look like a a true GTS as the front and side mirrors are not painted...and its missing the spoiler and ground effects that GTS usually sport (not sure if these were optional).

Hipster Lawrence

^nice I really like that riding on mr2 wheels too. I can't drive that back from Seattle with a rod knock though, If it were local it would already be sitting in my driveway since I have 2 spare engines.

Oh well I think I'm gonna go with the ae86, Joe I know I know buy a third gen. I love those cars and I'd love to have one but I'm gonna stick with the 4age (under)powered cars I have a freaking parts department for them at my house.

I did try and buy that 82 coupe that I posted about up here a few months ago, offered him 3k he wasn't selling. Maybe I'll buy it from his wife after he passes (he's like 90).

The AE86 I linked to in this thread has no LSD but I ain't drifting or racing the thing so that's not really a deal breaker for me. What I like about it is that it is an unmolested ae86, it's almost totally stock. You wouldn't believe how hard it is to find a stock 8-6. Almost as hard as it is to find a clean fx16 GT-S. RWD FTW anyway.

VikingJZ
05-29-2010, 03:26 AM
Yeah FX16's are really cool. I wish I would have bought that GTS a few years ago but it honestly was a piece.

I LOVED the seats though.

I just hurt the feelings of a guy on the Highway with mine. He was in a grand prix. I went around him at 110mph and he cought up to me so I snatched 4th. and away we went. I pulled him by two lengths and shifted to 5th and away I went all alone.
Please don't try this at home.

Got it! Man is it a fun ass car to drive totally different than the mk1 but also the same.
I fukken love it.

It does have some issues. Someone has hacked up the wiring harness changed to a different kind of injectors removed the fuel pressure vsv left the fuel pressure reg vacuum line off there is a vacuum leak in front of the AFM the ac idle up doesn't work it has no catalytic converter or EGR it needs 2 tires has cheap brake pads and I think the t-vis is not working.

I can fix all that stuff though and I have most of the engine parts except the EGR. I may ghetto rig the egr with a rubber hose for a tube to get it to pass emissions.

I'm going to start a new thread about all these issues.

I'll post pics tomorrow.

VikingJZ

Well it's not as clean as it looks but it is pretty damn nice. The paintjob is kind of crappy but I think it is fixable.
