The body comes with decals and masking, and is officially licensed by Toyota Motor Corporation. This will come in clear polycarbonate so you will need to paint this, the pictures shown are for example only. According to RC Spice this body only includes the decals and masking. We have more pictures of the Starlet after the jump including one done to the next level.
The KP61 was the only Starlet ever sold in the USA from 1981 to 1984, and the Toyota Corolla FX replaced it in 1985. The 1981–1982 models came with standard 5-speed manual transmission and tachometer. It is an equivalent to other markets’ S model. The 1983–1984 models were additionally offered with Electronic Fuel Injection (EFI) with the 4K engine, but with 4-speed manual transmission, and similar to other markets’ XLi model. – Wikipedia
