Old Faithful: 1993 Toyota E100 Corolla DX Five Door Wagon 5-Speed – $2,750

Nov 2019 | Classifinds, Wagon Wednesday

If you’re like us, we remember a simpler time before look-alike crossovers dominated the landscape when people on a budget who needed extra room in their cars bought a small wagon such as this 1993 Toyota Corolla DX Five-Door we found here on Craigslist in Bensalem, Pennsylvania where the private seller  is currently asking $2,750 for his car.   The NADA Guides Online Valuation Tool currently lists its “Low”, “Average”, and “High” retail value range for these cars at $2,250, $3,525, and $4,750, respectively, so the seller’s expectations are aligned with the market.  If you are serious about purchasing this Corolla, you can start the conversation by calling the seller, Jalen, at (267) 229-8697.

Toyota introduced its seventh generation Corolla in the North American market in 1993.  This generation of Corolla was larger, heavier, and visually more aerodynamic than the model it replaced.  While the base model came with the 1.6 liter 4A-FE engine, DX, wagon featured here came with the 1.8 liter 7A-FE rated at 115 hp.  Every model Corolla in this generation featured fully independent suspension, front disk- and rear drum brakes.

We like this RADWood eligible Corolla wagon as its a good looking five-door that based on the odd titled Batman–esque Villain  hideout shots appears to have a presentable body.  With the fixe-speed and full independent handling, this little five door has the making of a nice momentum car on a slow country road, especially fitted with the aftermarket wheels and KSport coil-over shocks.  Finally, its a Corolla.  This car will out live all of us.  This is a great RADwood-eligible car you can daily while you finish paying off your student loans.  Good luck with the purchase!
