Last of the Round Styled: 1999 Toyota Celica GT

I've always been a fan of the 6th generation T200 Toyota Celica...particularly in the liftback style -- it combines decent sportiness (for a 90s Japanese economy car) with everyday practicality (hatchback!) and not-to-hideous styling.  In fact, I quite like the aesthetics of the liftback, it sorta looks like a 7/8ths scale 3rd gen Toyota Supra.  Find this 1999 Toyota Celica GT offered for $4800 in San Mateo, CA via craigslist.



From the seller:
I AM SELLING THE CLEANEST TOYOTA CELICA GT IN THE BAY AREA! THIS BABY IS IMMACULATE! EVERTHING WORKS PERFECTLY AND IT DRIVES LIKE IT HAS NO MILES ON IT! I AM NOT EXAGGERATING. WHEN YOU SEE THIS CAR IN PERSON YOU WILL BE IMPRESSED. THIS IS THE CLASSIC CELICA GT HATCHBACK WITH THE SUPER EASY 5 SPEED MANUAL TRANSMISSION AND LOADED WITH EVERY OPTION AVAILABLE! HUGE AMOUNT OF ROOM WITH THE SEAT FOLDED DOWN. THIS CAR HAS 4 WHEEL ABS DISC BRAKES AND GETS GREAT GAS MILEAGE. PERFECT FIRST CAR OR COMMUTER MILE EATER. I HAVE THE ORIGINAL WINDOW STICKER, TOO! 
THE CAR IS ALL ORIGINAL EXCEPT FOR A UNRECOGNIZABLE REPAIR TO THE RIGHT FRONT FENDER FROM A PARKING LOT INCIDENT THAT THE DEALER/BODY SHOP ESTIMATED SO HIGH THE INSURANCE COMPANY WANTED TO TAKE IT AWAY AS A TOTAL. NO WAY. UNFORTUNATELY, BECAUSE THE CAR IS OLDER, A REBUILT TITLE WAS ISSUED BECAUSE THE OWNER REFUSED TO LET THE CAR GO FOR SUCH A MINOR REPAIR. WHEN YOU SEE AND DRIVE THIS CAR YOU WILL UNDERSTAND WHY SHE WANTED TO KEEP THE CAR. ITS A BEAUTY INSIDE AND OUT.




THIS 1999 TOYOTA CELICA GT TCOMES WITH 4CYL, 5SPEED, PWR MOONROOF, LEATHER SEATS, PWR WINDOWS, LOCKS, TILT WHEEL, CRUISE CONTROL, CD/CASSETTE, STEREO WITH POWER ANTENNA, REMOTE WITH ALARM, 2 SETS OF KEYS, CHROME WHEELS W/NEW TIRES, FOG LIGHTS, REAR SPOILER, ORIGINAL OWNERS MANUAL AND WINDOW STICKER, AND MUCH MORE!
