Patrick Ng’s Toyota TE27

Although Norcal transplant Ethan  moved to Chicago several ago,  he does however it a point to return home as as possible. On one particular trip, had the privilege of shooting  Patrick super clean TE27 for UK mag Bonzai Mag.  We urge you to out the mag for the full feature,  but are some bonus photos we you would enjoy.

Patrick Ng roughly three years to this build.  First you will notice is the brilliant job. After the shell was and minor bodywork completed, Competition Orange was selected to the original Toyota orange.

Mechanically,  the Corolla has freed of its underpowered US-spec and been equipped with a capacity engine built up a combination of Toyota T-series  Starting with the long-stroke end from a 1770cc 3T-C, block was overbored to accept TRD pistons,  effectively creating a engine.  A pre-emission 2T-GR cylinder head was mildly and polished before being with TRD valves,  springs and duration camshafts.  A pair of 44mm side-draught carburettors with the responsibility of delivering and air in the correct proportions before all ignited by TRD speak plugs.  A 4-2-1 exhaust manifold the Toyota works tuner into a stainless Fujitsubo

It’s hard to believe the of this Corolla SR-5. took no short-cuts and found Levin parts in every nook and cranny. Japanese-spec parts shows here grille trim pieces,  side markers,  wing  bonnet vents,  chrome  badges,  and even the nozzles.  Patrick also to unearth a set of Tosco/TRD rally-spec for the front end,  just those used on the race from his childhood.

You have to love the MOMO with period-correct original TEQ horn

What a great road  The RS Watanabe wheels perfect  with the combined TRD

All in all,  Patrick’s TE27 is the finest example we have seen.  As Ethan described,   really hard to appreciate the of detail of this car unless you see it in   The car funtions mostly as a weekend  but you may be lucky enough to see it at the next Japanese Nostalgic Car Show. Patrick on such a fine and we hope our readers appreciate car as much as we do!
