HOT ROD Toyota Cresta GX71 Old School JDM Street Tunned RB25DET Swap



RB25 engine Toyota Cresta GX71 -

Hot Rod Old School drift granddaddy!

Today I want to show you something different, not your highly modified Supra, or Skyline on steroids.
It is rather simple and old school Toyota Cresta GX71 with RB25DET engine swap.
This unit is nicely restored, in fact in Japan it has an official engine swap documents (which is usually not the case)!
Please note that THE car came off the assembly line in July 1986, and almost 24 years later it only has 56,900KM! That's ~2380km per year, UNBELIEVABLE!

Please enjoy the historic machine, it is in fact a classic! This car is from the exact times of AE86 hachi-roku. The 4 door drift monster :)

Here are some of the modifications:
Body color: red candy (best color you could have on an old school 4door JDM)

Engine & Drive train: 
HCR33 Akira Makoto early RB25DET engine with 5 speed transmission,
OS Giken clutch, Oil Cooler, HPI turbo, Apex'i EVC
The rest:  
AE86 suspension swap :)

KYB front headlights 
Custom LED tail lights
Rims: Front SSR mark Ⅱ 14 x 9JJ (A-type) & Tires: RE-01R 185/60-14 
Rear SSR mark Ⅱ 14 x 10.5JJ (B type) & Rires: 195/55-14 STRETCH!!!! 
Very Nicely Rolled fenders

RETROFIT! Panasonic CD / MD audio
Saito Rorugeji made four-point roll bar 
Total cost to retrofit is well over 60 thousand dollars

Every gasket and rubber hose has been replaced, it is surely a HOT ROD!
There are other things in the car, but it doesn't matter, look at the pictures!

Also, get a chance to see the old school 4 door scene in Japan, sorry for crappy quality video, but you'll get the idea:
