an ae86 I believe is an 86 toyota corolla in japan it was a torino and I think the ae85 was a levin, either way the torino was a dohc car and the levin was a sohc car. dohc( dual over head cam) sohc(single over head cam)


The AE86 generation of the Toyota Corolla Levin and Toyota Sprinter Trueno is a small, lightweight coupe introduced by Toyota in 1983 as part of the fifth generation Toyota Corolla line-up. For the purpose of brevity, the insider-chassis code of "AE86" is used to describe the whole range. In classic Toyota code, the "A" represents the engine that came in the car (the 3A and 4A) and the E86 represents the 6th revision of the fifth generation (E80 series) of the E model which is the Corolla. The visual difference between the Levin and Trueno is that the former has fixed-headlights and the latter has retractable headlights. The export model name Corolla covers both variations. The AE86 (along with the lower spec 1,452 cubic centimetres (1.452 L) AE85 and 1587 cc SR5 versions) was rear wheel drive (unlike the front wheel drive CE80, EE80 and AE82 models), and is among the last rear-drive cars of its type, at a time when most passenger cars were being switched to front-drive. The AE86 was replaced in 1987 by the front wheel drive AE92 Corolla/Sprinter range. The AE86 was also known as the Hachi-Roku (ハチロク, Hachi-Roku?) (after the numbers eight (ハチ, hachi?) and six (ロク, roku?) in Japanese).


No actuly they made AE85 in levin and trueno, the only difference between the two is the lights front and rear. Then the AE86 is the same but with the 4age twincam engine. Depending on where in the world you are the name changes. america is corolla SR5 i think, japan is sprinter, but they are all AE86s anyway I live in New Zealand with a jap import AE85 sprinter trueno, now converted to an AE86 :) fun fun


The Levin and trueno both came with chasis code AE85 and AE86, the AE86 had DOHC plus LSD, 4wdiscs and a lot more gimmicks

Then it is god that i have one ,with a 4agz in it and it is one of the first to get to Denmark :)
