Classic Car Overview

This is my 1981 Celica Liftback GT.

It was originally a California car. Extremely low mileage (37000ish!)

Original carb was taken out and replaced with a Weber Redline. The original carb and all of the components will be included. It neeeds a rebuild, but I opted for the Weber instead.

Main issues with the car are that the windshield is pitted from California beach weather, resulting in a small crack dead center.

The hatch trim inside was also sort of punished by the sun, so it's as brittle as you'd expect 40 year old plastic that was in the sun to be.

The red pinstripe along the passenger side is also sunfaded. I was told by a body shop that it's about 50$ to get a mylar tape stripe added that will look/function the same.

Very. Very. small surface rust starting below the driver side taillight.

Comes with one spare passenger tail light, and original driver tail light. The original lense was damaged, so the driver side light was replaced.

Recently detailed.

Runs great, no issues mechanically to my knowledge. Has never seen snow, and generally only was taken out in the Spring, Summer, and early fall.

Selling because I travel too much for work, so the thing mostly ends up sitting. I make sure to start it once in awhile to keep the carb from gooning up though.

Great car, and hate to see it go, but also hate to see it mostly just sit around.

Needs to go to someone who will flip the odometer driving it around.
