The Toyota Celica was an affordable ‘sporty’ coupe from Toyota, and
quite frankly a horrible car once it made the switch from rear wheel
drive to front wheel drive when the fourth generation Celica debuted in
1986. The only notable exception is the All-Trac turbo cars that
combined all-wheel-drive with a turbocharged 4-banger to put some fun
back into the 4 wheeled washing machines from the company founded by Kiichiro Toyoda in 1937. This 5th generation (T180) Find this 1990 Toyota Celica AllTrac here on eBay bidding for $4,500 located in Indianapolis, IN with 4 days to go.
This T180 generation GT-Four All-Trac is powered by a transverse mounted
turbocharged and intercooled 3S-GTE 2.0 liter inline 4 putting out 200
horsepower and 142 ft-lbs of torque into a 5spd manual transmission.
The low power output and prone to understeer All-Trac system made the
Celica a slightly less fun-to-drive alternative to AWD offerings from
Mistubishi, Mazda & Subaru, but its handsome design and rock solid
reliability trumped its competitors.
