Rusty & Musty: 1977 Toyota Celica GTV Coupe - RA23/18R-G

May 25, 2016

Earlier this year I took a trip down to Kumamoto to visit Otsu-san. He was very kind to show me around.

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