The show car, when listed for sale, had just over 42K miles and was located in North York, Ontario, Canada. The restorer spent over $50K to have professionals build this car from the chassis up. Everything is either new or rebuilt.
Now let’s see this unique widebody Celica in all its glory!
Notable Exterior Features
Anyone can tell upon first glance that there’s nothing stock about this car’s hatchback body. It sports a nine-piece wide body kit, as well as shaved door handles, a carbon fiber hood, and a carbon fiber roof. The custom sunset orange paint wraps up the entire look nicely.
What’s Under the Hood?
If you pop the hood, you’ll find a completely rebuilt motor with new valve seals, gaskets, bearings, and more.
There’s also a brand new Optima YellowTop battery and a Toyota 5 speed transmission with a new clutch plate, throwout bearing, and clutch disc.
Believe it or not, this bad boy is street legal!
As if the rebuilt engine wasn’t enough, this Celica also comes loaded with performance upgrades. Adjustable coil over shocks were installed in the front and rear. All four wheels were upgraded to 19” custom alloy wheels, and they all sport custom disc brakes with street pads. We spy new exhaust pipes, too!
The interior is all custom and has a custom sound system.
We spy custom bucket seats, an upgraded steering wheel, aftermarket pedals, an infotainment screen, custom dashboard and door panels, and more. This interior is like none other. We'd love to spend some time cruising in this car!
