1978 Toyota Celica LT 2L 4 cylinder
Awesome car, comfortable, stylish, can't wait to drive her
Small amount of rust in right hand pillar.
Cam chain has worn out and rattles.
Window wiper joint wore out (right hand side)
Back seat ripped on top.
Tie rod end joints were worn.
Breaks were badly worn
Front Shokies were badly worn
Beautiful to look at, very sleek design, nice curves, especially the back end. Quite low to the ground, driver sits 40cm above the ground. I also love the doors, very long and classy.
Comfortable seats, All areas of instrument panel are well within reach. And there is plenty of room to sit in. Though anyone in the back seat would be a little cramped with anyone taller in the front.
This is my first car and I am restoring it with the help of interior and mechanicals from a '79' coupe.
There is a fair amount of work still to be done yet, Cam chain replaced, air conditioning transfered from '79' coupe, re-spray body, interior restored (sand and paint with plastic paint), roof re insulated and covered, new chrome trim for edgeing. And there is a strange jerking when motor starts which we are not sure of yet.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
