1985 Toyota Camry

The Toyota Camry was still relatively new to the market in 1985. Its styling was typical of Japanese imports of the time: small and boxy, but sturdy. The 1985 Toyota Camry did receive a few updates for the model year, including flush-mounted headlights and new color choices. It was available as a four-door sedan or a five-door hatchback.

The 1985 Toyota Camry came with a four-cylinder, 2.0-liter, 95-horsepower engine (a small increase in output from the previous version) and was available in either a four-speed automatic or a five-speed manual. Fuel economy is about 31 mpg. Both the 1985 Toyota Camry sedan and the hatchback were available in LE and DLX trim levels.

Drivers of the 1985 Toyota Camry complain about some rust issues, which could be chalked up to old age. It is notable, however, that there still drivers of the 1985 Toyota Camry out there, more than 20 years after the car's introduction, which speaks to Toyota's performance and reliability.
