    I really hate to do this because out of all the cars I've had, this is probably my favorite. Since I picked up the '77 Celica, I just don't have the room for it anymore. It's not going to get the attention it needs to stay clean and tastefully modded.

    The low down:
    It's a 1997 Celica GT, 4 speed slush-o-matic.
    It's got 114k miles on the clock, which isn't very high at all for the age.
    It's really really clean inside and out. Has EVERY option available for 1997. "Sport" package, leather, sunroof, keyless entry, Toyota VIP alarm with glass breakage sensors. Someone paid $28,000 for this car back in late 1996. To put that in perspective, I bought my 2012 Mustang 5.0 for $28,000 in March of this year...

    List of mods is as follows:
    Toyota Parts (obligatory mad tyte JDM yo! parts)
    1996+ Projector headlights, purchased NEW from a dealer in Australia in 2006. Guy before me had them taken apart and the cutoffs changed for LHD cars. (as to not blind on coming cars) They do not fog or leak. It has a DXHiD kit (I believe that's the brand anyways. No flickers or other problems.)
    1996+ Tail lights.
    1998-1999 Celica SSIII/SS3 (look it up, it was a rare, low production trim level, came with the BEAMS 3SGE redtop) Front and rear skirts. Paint matched. Fronts have some chips and scrapes.
    1998-1999 SSIII grille insert/mesh.
    1998+ Red-tiger camo seats. Front and rear. Flawless. The car was a leather package car, but the skins were shot when I picked this car up.
    European spec rear license plate surround/tail light garnish.
    2000-2005 Celica GT-S wheels with BFG KDW2's.

    Everything else:

    -Megan coilovers, bought new last year. Been installed on the car for just about a year now.
    -GReddy SP2 catback. VERY rare, I found a guy who had one NEW in the box two years ago. I'm ashamed on how much $$$ I shelled out for it.
    -OBX full length header (was for an MR2, had iLL garage make up the correct b-pipe for it.)
    -Injen CAI
    -Powerslot rotors.
    -Hawk autocross pads.
    -Lot's of LED upgrades, nothing crazy though. Mainly gauges and exterior lighting.
    -Tint all around.

    The business:

    I'm asking $6,500 for the car as she sits. The projectors and some of the other rare parts can fetch a high $$$ amount alone. Seriously ( http://www.ebay.com/itm/JDM-TOYOTA-...Parts_Accessories&hash=item3a7a868f1e&vxp=mtr ) For a dirty, old, broken tab, non HID equipped set. I have TWO sets of wheels and tires, the aforementioned GT-S wheels with the BFG's AND the stock 15's with Blizzacks on them. You'll have to see this car to appreciate it. I would really like to sell it as is, it'd be a shame to have to pull everything off.

    Feel free to ask me for more pics/info. If you're interested, pm me and I'll give you my number. This car will NOT disappoint. It's clean, rust free, reliable as shit. I've never had an issue. If you want to make it fast, the 5 speed swap is a weekend project, the 3SGE and GTE bolt in, and, for you ballers, the 3.0 and 3.3 Lexus V6's fit and bolt up to the 5 speed. Even better, the 270 horse (Toyota) or 315 horse (Lexus direct injected) 3.5L 2GRFE V6 does as well [​IMG] If I only had the money...

    Speaking of which, if I get close to the asking price, I'll throw in the almost complete 3SGTE turbo kit I have for it. I have the injectors, 2 bar MAP, fuel pump, manifold, CT26 turbo in ok condition, oil and water lines, and the correct oil pan for the install. Just an FYI.

    Sweet ride! always had a soft spot for those. If I hadn't had bought my Access Cab last wednesday, I would have been interested! Hopefully the right buyer comes along and realizes what gem you have.

    For personal purposes, pics of the interior?

    It's the last good body style IMO :) I have pics but they're on my computer. Ill get you some when I get home. It's got the red tiger cammo seats in it. The leather was all cracked and dry when I got it, so I bought some 98-99 JDM seat skins from an importer and re-covered them. Google it and you'll see what I mean. It looks really cool.

    Would consider trades for a FJ/Pickup/Something with a 20R/22R.
