Mini Mustang: 1977 Toyota Celica GT Liftback

The first generation Toyota Celica was built in Japan for world wide consumption from 1970 through 1977 and sold in large quantities as a Japanese downsized antidote to the bloated 'Merican sports coupes of the day.  In 1976 a liftback version was released in North America that resembled a 7/8ths scale Mustang, but regardless the Celica is the classic Japanese pony car to get.  Find this 1977 Toyota Celica GT Liftback offered for $1800 in Menlo Park, CA via craigslist.

1977 celica for sale. 50xxx all original miles. Car is not running at the moment. Needs a little love to get it running again. My guess is a ground issue. When I got the car years ago I had to deal with a couple ground issues to get it running Ran perfectly fine a couple years ago. It’s just been sitting. Has aftermarket carburetor. Exhaust and sun roof.

I’m asking 1800 or best offer. Would like to see it go to a good home. This car has been in my family since I was a baby. 

 See a better way to drive a Japanese Mustang?


  1. Hmm, I actually don't care for the Supra wheels.

  2. Wow that’s cheap!
    No wonder it’s already sold.

    1. Yeah, these Celicas seem to be getting better looking with age.
