ST165 All-Trac Turbo: 1988 Toyota Celica GT-Four

The Celica GT-Four was a street version of the car that Toyota used to compete in the World Rally Championship, and it offered a turbocharged engine and all wheel drive in the compact Celica liftback package.  Find this 1988 Toyota Celica GT-Four All-Trac Turbo offered for $4,500 in Watsonville, CA via craigslist.  Tip from Kaibeezy.

The ST165 generation was the first Celia to be moved on a front-wheel-drive platform and separate from the Supra platform, which stayed rear-wheel-drive.  Enthusiasts might pout about this, but it did allow Toyota to create the All-Trac Turbo (aka GT-Four) version, both the street and track versions.

This ST165 would have originally been powered by a turbocharged 3S-GTE inline-4 good for around 182 horsepower, but it has been replaced with a later engine that should push out something in the neighborhood of 225 horsepower and possibly invisible to the prying eyes of a smog technician. 

The interior isn’t in the best shape, but you can probably find standard Celica parts for cheap at a local junkyard to replace anything worn or broken.
