Toyota vista 4wd

Postby Turbo Lean » Sat Mar 10, 2018 10:42 pm

It’s been a while since I have posted on here but I feel compelled to share my latest 90s Toyota. I never knew this car existed till last month. It’s a 1992 Toyota Vista vx2.0 4wd.
I find it very difficult to find any info on this car. I’m having to compare info on interchangeable parts through BGBs and various google searches.
Besides that, it’s a wonderful little car that makes a perfect year round daily driver.

Aren't those based on the 3rd-generation Toyota Camry? The dashboard looks pretty much identical. A good website to find parts for JDM-only cars is JP-carparts.com, by the way.

The Vista is a narrow-body version of the Toyota Camry sold exclusively in Japan.

For parts lookup, I would recommend http://www.toyodiy.com/. The website lists part numbers for any Toyota sold worldwide.

Pretty much. It’s a es300 body and the interior is Camry. Not sure what the 4wd drivetrain is from.

the AWD drive train was used in a small number of Camrys and Vistas with the SV25 frame number. In the US they used the All-Trac label on these cars, but the All-Trac name was only used in North America.

So it can be said that it has an alltrac drivetrain?
This is a sv35 btw. Part of the sv30 family.

Knowing it's a Japan only Camry twin, it's ripe for a LHD conversion using (Camry int parts). Nice find.

Thanks guys. I got lucky finding this one. I’m pretty sure it’s the only one in the USA. Even though it’s perfect in its stock form, a 4th gen 3sgte would be a great swap for this car.
