A friend Gave me one of his OEM-Stereo to replace the one in my car that is not working so good.

Very interesting small/ small detail I dont think anyone has notice this

I notice one small dif between the two original stereos for 85-85 p-type.
One has three buttons for am/fm and am/st, just below the tune buttons.

The other one has two buttons am/fm and sens

One has #1623 the other has #1626 on the front

Its intresting to find the dif models and things, just like I was told that in the US there were no P-types with digital dash/ only L-types

Dzone,

According to my copy of the Toyota Press Release for early 1986 (that I got from Archie Bowles (who also has a 86)), the 86 MKII's had AM Stereo on the factory Fujitsu stereo's. This was one of the subtle differences between the 86 & 85 models (besides the centermount 3rd brake light). The 85 Fujitsu's did not have AM stereo.

Hey all,

Sorry to steal the thread. CJSREDPRA, do you by anychance have a photo of your 3rd centermount brake light? In Australia it was not mandatory to have a 3rd centermount brake light until late 198es9 so my MA61 doesn't have one...

Any one else who have the photo of the light please post it up or e-mail it to me...

Cheers

Sorry, I don't have a centermount 3rd brake light. My Redpra is a 85 & the 3rd brake light only came on 86's.

Talk to either Seamus, Charles, or Archie & see if they can provide pics of said item.

Its not a very good pic. Personally I wouldn't bother. I'll leave mine on as its the only external sign that the car is an 86 but frankly the thing looks like it was tacked on as an afterthought, which it was. Doesn't really do anything for the car.

i just got a 2-din fujitsu-ten from a friend of mine, it's radio-cassete, 2 pieces, and it has AM stereo. It came from a 1987 AE86 trueno (based on VIN).

I put it to my supra yesterday, with 4 sounstream speakers, and i am very happy with the S/N ratio , i don't hear noises, just music.

he is pics:





car out


radio-out

one small problem, the down piece, the cassete player, lights are not up,eventhough the black back connector is inside.

is it normal?

Wow, talk about bringing back an old thread from the dead, 4 years old man. Significant thread too, I had just met DZone at the time and hadn't met Slip yet. How things have changed.
