Toyota Corolla
Introduced: 1966
Toyota introduced the Corolla in Japan in 1966, and the small economical car came to America two years later. Available as a 2-door coupe, 4-door sedan or 2-door wagon, the Corolla had a starting price around $1,700 and its simple design gained popularity quickly. The first model had a 1.1-liter engine that delivered 60 horsepower through a 4-speed manual transmission. A Corolla model has been on sale every year in America since that first one came across the Pacific, with almost 50 million copies sold over 12 generations.
