2JZ Swapped: 1984 Toyota Celica GTS

The 3rd generation (internally called A60) Celica was the final rear-drive chassis to use Toyota’s Celica name.  The next generation used a transverse front-drive setup that has become a de facto standard for economy cars, but up through 1985 you could get a Celica from the factory with a longintudinal engine and right wheel drive…and today’s example comes with a fresh 2JZ swap. Find this 1984 Toyota Celica GTS offered for $6,500 in Gilroy, CA via craigslist. Tip from FuelTruck.

Up for sale is my 84′ RA65 gts coupe! The last of the RWD celi’s, and the only model with IRS. I recently swapped a 2JZ from an 03′ IS300 into this little japanese muscle car. Since I’ve been driving it, its been nothing but smiles and complements. I completed the swap back in April of this year and I’ve been daily driving the car every since. Perfecting all the flaws, as i go. Everything has been done properly and safe as far as the swap goes. I know this car better than the back of my hand, and i’m honestly willing to answer any questions or concerns you may have about it. No leaks, no overheating, no starting issues!! It fires up every time and has never left me stranded.

The only things I haven’t addressed on the car but would like to, is the suspension and the seats. Both, have yet to be revamped.
