Works Overfenders: 1973 Toyota Celica 1600GT Liftback

February 02, 2017

Here's a car I've been seeing around pretty much ever since I started going to car shows in Japan. Eye-catching for sure, but for various reasons it's taken me a very long time to do the video on this wide-body, first generation LB Celica.

The A20/35 Series Celica was built from Dec 1970 to Jul 1977. This Celica liftback was built in 1973. It has a 1,588cc 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>
