Toyota Includes AE86 To Heritage Parts Program


Toyota is once again expanding its Heritage Parts program to cover the Corolla Levin and Sprinter Trueno—better known as the AE86.

The project which started re-producing parts for classic Toyota models such as the A70 and A80 Supra, the 2000GT, and the 40 Series Land Cruiser, can now include the AE86 to its list.

The Levin and Trueno are the sports models in the Corolla and Sprinter series. Only vehicles equipped with the 1.6-liter DOHC 16-valve (4A-GEU) engine were given the “AE86” designation. Despite production having ceased more than 30 years ago, the AE86 continues to be extremely popular today, and is affectionately referred to in Japan as "hachi-roku," meaning "eight-six."

Starting today, Toyota Gazoo Racing will gradually reproduce parts available for purchase at Japan-based Toyota dealerships.

However, the reproduced parts will only be produced for a limited period with the special cooperation of its suppliers; for this reason, after their production periods have ended, each reproduced part will only be available for purchase for as long as stocks last.

Parts for the AE86 include rear drive shafts, rear brake calipers, and steering knuckle arms.
