The Toyota Celica will probably be one of the most collectible Toyotas behind the 2000 GT and the Supra, and their values are reflecting this. We saw this 1977 Celica Liftback, and this 1974 Celica GT Coupe, so now its time to discover the second generation Celica, and here is a 1980 GT liftback that is a Grand Prix Racing limited edition. I don’t know what that was, but I want it anyway.
The second generation Celica was a handsome design when introduced in 1978, with almost none of the surface detailing found on the first generation. The design was further cleaned up for the 1980 model year with the square quad headlamps in the USDM versions. According to the listing:
This is a 1980 Toyota Celica limited edition “GRAND PRIX RACING edition with the official plate stamped inside of the car. This car has been restored back to or as close to the orginal look…everything in the car is orginal or close to it…it has a fresh new paint job, named “lipstick red” it has pretty much brand new tires on the car, new windshield, new carburator, new sparks plugs, new spark plug wires, fresh oil change…it comes with 3 manuals to work on your car, 1 computer cd disk to look up parts, get spec’s and help, 1 owner’s manual, a bunch of receipts, 2 vintage brochures that looks just like the car you can buy…I have a clean and clear Georgia title and the car just passed inspection with flying colors.
The car is solid from front to back, the engine is still strong, runs smooth, clutch is in great shape, rides nicely, does not smoke at all besides the very first crank of the day (if you know anything about these toyotas, they ALL are known for that), a/c blows cold air and the heater keeps you nice and warm…picks up speed very well, stops like it should, all clean windows
Overall this is a classy car that someone would love to have…please feel free to ask me any questions that you see fit…this car has never been outside in the weather,, garaged only…I have a 2nd toyota celica that you can have free for parts if you want it, it does not run but just about all the parts are there (it’s up to you to remove it from my property no later than 2weeks after the sale) and I also have many other parts in my basement to go along with this car.
All spelling issues aside, this looks like a great Celica to show and own. Bidding has stalled at $3,900, with an unmet reserve. So what would you pay for this pristine 2nd generation Celica? See the listing here.
