Project Car: 1976 Toyota Celica GT Liftback

This next car comes as a tip from Matt C who writes: The bad: Needs new paint, and who knows what the primer’s hiding. Can’t tell how bad the interior is from these pictures. The good: Manual transmission – for once, it’s an old Japanese car that’s not an automatic. Runs and drives, and with a 20R under the hood, will probably remain running and driving for a while. Supposedly only 60,000 on the odometer, although I don’t know when these got 6 digit odometers. Find this 1976 Toyota Celica GT Liftback offered for $5000 in Marietta, GA via fecebrook crashstock.
