TOY­OTA CEL­ICA RA25 LIFT­BACK

Unique Cars - - JAPANESE CLASSICS -

Next is the hum­ble Toy­ota Cel­ica – that is the early mod­els. My par­ents owned two of these things new and it was al­ways a mys­tery why the lo­cal im­porter didn’t see fit to bring in the sexy 1600 GTs rather than the cook­ing ver­sions. That aside, the next shape RA25 lift­back is the one that has long-term ap­peal. There’s more than a hint of Mus­tang about them and hav­ing the big­ger two-litre pow­er­plant is a real bonus. Sadly, there re­ally don’t seem to be many left out there. Did the rust kill them? Prices seem to be all over the place, but you’d hope mid twen­ties would snag a de­cent man­ual.
