For Sale: 1977 Toyota Celica in Jackson, Louisiana

$5,900 (OBO)  

Vehicle Description

This is the rare 1977 Liftback GT model that is highly sought after by investors and collectors.  The car has no rust on any of the bodywork. The engine runs and has been completely rebuilt.   Has a new carburetor and air intakes.  A new dash cap and rear window seal has been installed.  Includes new tires and rims and a new bumper.  A new touchscreen stereo with backup camera is included. Will need to be trailered home as this car has not been on the road since 1987. This is a perfect project car for the right individual.  Fully restored cars sell for upwards of $20,000.

I bought this car in 1979 while in high school and used it until my wife wrecked it in 1987 when she turned at a stop sign and hit a telephone pole going about 10 mph  due to the glare.  You may notice slight fender damage to the right quarter panel.  The car sat in my shed for more than 25 years until it was given to my son-in-law who wanted to restore it.  He is very mechanical and was able to rebuild the engine and get it running.  He also painted the car.    Proceeds from the sale will be deposited in the two grand kids' college account.

This car was always an eye catcher with its styling similar to the Mustang.  To this day I am still not sure if it was my good looks or the cool car that helped me get my wife.
