Redline Restorations is pleased to offer this Silver Metallic 1977 Toyota Celica GT Liftback. The Celica Liftback was only produced from ‘76-'77 and only offered in GT Trim. This car was purchased new from Aurora Motors Toyota in Washington state. This car remained on the west coast and was enjoyed by the original owner for roughly 30 years.

This Celica was then sold to a gentleman on the east coast who tastefully modified it to his liking. From factory this vehicle was equipped with a 2.2L (2189cc) SOHC engine. It is now equipped with a rare four-cylinder, DOHC, 18RG engine. The 18RG motor was available in European spec Celica Liftbacks and was derived from work on the Toyota 2000GT. With the addition of a few bolt-ons this Celica is estimated to put down roughly 165HP, this is substantially quicker than the factory 96HP.

Additional modifications include front coilovers, upgraded rear springs, Solex side-draft weber carburetors, Rota wheels, and new tires. The interior is original and shows in very good condition. Included in the sale is the original window sticker, import documentation, and a very large binder of maintenance history dating to ‘76.
