The 2nd generation Celica was great little rear-drive coupe from the makers of our favorite appliances, Toyota. It was built in Japan from 1978 to 1981 as a 2 door coupe or 3 door liftback, but it was not available from the factory as a convertible version. US dealers complained enough that Toyota outsourced the hacking of the roof off to the Griffith Company which installed a targa-style top with folding rear convertible back to roughly 2000 examples to make the Sunchaser. Find this 1980 Toyota Celica GT Sunchaser offered for $6,850 in Vancouver, WA via craigslist. Tip from Rock On!
