10k: GT-Four Liftback: 1990 Toyota Celica All-Trac

The fifth generation Toyota Celia was released for the 1990 model year with all new “Super Round” organic styling and further refinement on the rock solid build quality that was beginning to be synonymous with the word Toyota.  It wasn’t an exciting car by any yardstick, but the GT-Four version (All-Trac in the US) added some needed power, all-wheel-drive traction, and, most importantly, a prominent hood scoop to the basic version.  Find this 1990 Toyota Celia All-Trac here on eBay currently bidding for $5,000 reserve-not-met ($11,000 buy-it-now) located in Rockford, IL.

As pointed out by K2 Mystery Car & Bolo in the comments of the SHOChero feature, the All-Trac uses a 16-Valve cylinder head designed by Yamaha, in fact the Celica first used a Yamaha head in the 1976 18R-G TwinCam engine. 

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 is less fun-to-drive alternative to AWD offerings from
Mistubishi, Mazda & Subaru, but its handsome design and rock solid
reliability trumped its competitors.

This All-Trac contains all the best faded blue hues you’d expect from an early 90s Japanese car, an All-Trac embossed air bag, and an enormous shifter.
