1966 Toyota Corolla Model KE10

The 1966 Toyota Corolla Model KE10 was the first generation of the Corolla line and was produced from 1966 to 1970. It was a compact car that was designed to fit the needs of the Japanese market, which was growing rapidly during this time. The KE10 was available in either a 2-door or 4-door sedan, and it was powered by a 1.1-liter, 4-cylinder engine that produced 60 horsepower and 63 lb-ft of torque. The engine was paired with a 4-speed manual transmission and could achieve 0-60 mph in 16 seconds. The KE10 featured a simple and straightforward design and had a boxy body with a front-engine, rear-wheel-drive layout. It also had independent front suspension and a solid rear axle with leaf springs, which provided a comfortable ride. The KE10 was known for its reliability, fuel efficiency, and affordability, which helped it become one of the best-selling cars in the world. It was also the first car to be called “Corolla,” which has since become one of Toyota’s most iconic and enduring models.
