I really wanted to do this car up with a 1G, but alas a blown engine in the celica leaves me with not a lot of time/money/motivation to start a new project.

Body:
It's pretty straight and essentially rust free. edit: I've just had a closer look, and it's starting to get a couple of isolated spots, so I'll call it 'very minimal rust'. There is a removable panel at the base of the windscreen that rusted, but it's just screwed on, and a couple of minor spots seen in the pics below. There are a few minor dings around the place.

Paint:
Light blue, and old and faded. plenty of chips/scratches etc. Looks ratty up close.

Engine/box:
None. Was 22RE/Manual, but I'll be taking that out before sale. It's running at the moment (loses coolant through leaky hoses) but I'd like to keep the engine/gearbox for another project.
If you'd like it as-is with engine and box, send an offer, but keep in mind it's a tidy EFI 22R-E and W58 (ie: worth a lot more than a couple of hundred bucks).


Interior:
Blue. Mostly complete in the front, but the rear seat and some boot trims have been removed. Drivers seat sags.

Wheels/ tyres:
Nothing special, just stock wheels with pretty good tyres.

Other:
Pretty highly featured car, was optioned with velour, a/c, door lock solenoids etc.
A couple of the door latches are stuck, and the bonnet hinges are stiff. If i get time i'll grease the hinges and look at the latches.

Price:
$400. Not very negotiable, as I'd be able to wreck it for more. Just seems such a shame to do that to a fairly straight and original car. Perfect race-stylez 1J candidate.


Pickup in Laverton, but can deliver close to melbourne for a fee.

Cheers,
Timbo

Hi Mate,

The reason I have no time is because I have too many cars, lol. So don't want another, sorry.

If you're interested in doing up a rona, this one would be pretty good for the price. Body is straight and as far as I can see it's essentially rust free (the removable panel at the base of the windscreen is rusty where some leaves must've sat, but it's removable).

The paint is old and faded and looks pretty poo, but for $400 what do you expect :)

Yeah, the celica motor dying is the reason this has to go now.

For sure... I won't get spare time to pull it apart for ages, but if someone fronts up the cash I'll make time :)
