Rare: A Limited Edition, 1977 Toyota Celica 2000GT Liftback (1 of 385)

February 13, 2013

There has been some debate over whether this car is an actual limited-edition, 1 of 385 Celica Liftback or just the product of someone's imagination. Apparently, Toyota wanted to commemorate the 100,000th-registered-Celica-in-Japan.

The A20/35 Series Celica was built from Dec 1970 to Jul 1977. This Celica Liftback was built in 1977. It has a 1,968cc inline 4 engine.

How does winning stuff sound?

I've set myself an ambitious target, and that is to unearth all of Japan's rusting, nostalgic gems. It's not going to be easy. They're shy creatures and prefer to remain hidden. And, limited time and funds mean they're likely to stay that way, which would be not cool! <More>
