If I do, its likely to be the hatchback version, the slightly more awkward looking of the two bodies.
Whether hatchback or hardtop/Coupe; its not a car that you would consider particularly attractive, but I can understand why some people would like them. The model followed the pretty '70's' first generation Celica's, and was followed by the wedgey and nicely proportioned third generation Celica's.. so understandably these get a little overlooked..
On the plus side, that fact combined with a rather short production run (77-81), makes them rare. Something different.
Interstingly, this chassis also provided the basis of the first generation Toyota Supra.
Its been lovingly modified by someone, what i can only guess was years ago. whether you like the style or not, whoever did it obviously put effort in.
Molded flares, large front lip, C10 GTR wing, tint, recaro's and a burgundy repaint.
All in all, a neat example of a sadly forgotten Celica...
