1981 Toyota Corolla KE55 Second Edition: These were the last of of this body shape series before being superseded by the new model. Notice the square headlights and egg crate grill. There were thousands of these 1970’s Corollas around, but sadly older models are getting less and less.

  1. Wow, this was my first car. Not this model, but this car! It was my dads and he gave it to me., I drove it from ACT across to WA when I was 18. I crashed it at 17 and we had to replace a couple of panels, we then gave it a new paint job !! Then I ‘bumped’ it into a small tree lol (notice the small dent in the bonnet) yes I was not a very good driver! The car was awesome! 4spd , manual choke and air conditioning!!! Can you believe it!! I left it with a friend in Perth that I never heard from again.. I really miss my Rolla.. She was the best car ever didn’t miss a beat never used any oil. Dad was a mechanic and this car was well looked after, sad to see her rusty 🙁 she never had any rust on her being in the ACT all her life. Anyway, it’s a car I wish I never let go of that’s for sure. Would love to buy her back!

  2. Hi Alysha, that’s great to hear from you and an interesting story you have. Actually it’s incredible that your old ‘Rolla has survived this long as so many of them have been retired and been scrapped. Hopefully it’ll keep going and going as an example of an older Corolla. Regards Jeff.
