Help needed: firewall plates wanted
Time to revive this thread from the dead...
I received the phone number of the SR guy, but he never replied back.

However this popped up on Ebay last week:

A Swiss Corolla brochure containing the SR coupe! Hurray!

From the EPC I found out the SR was available in Switzerland between August 1983 and January 1985. And the Swiss GTi was available from February 1985 till July 1986.
The brochure is (presumably) dated February 1984 and the other brochure I own that is dated March 1985 and this is the pre-facelift brochure. So this is in line with the data from the EPC.

That's interesting, while I've seen 2-3 4-doors here I've never seen a 3-door SR.
So I can only assume the only sold a few and or most of them didn't survive.

Yes that's also what I suspected. The specifications are close to the Australian Sprinter SR and I suspect they are the same.
The model codes are:
AE86L-ECMXCC
AE86R-ECMXCQ
The C and Q at the end denote Switzerland and Australia.

I know quite a few were on the market about 10 years ago, including two in the Netherlands. But since they lack the 4A-GE, nobody was willing to pay money for those cars. Which was stupid as even a proper one would fetch a high price today.

That cars is news to me. It seems strange that nobody would pay good money for them, a 4AG swap isn't exactly the biggest job in the world. I bet the guys who turned them down ten years ago are kicking themselves now.
