My 1988 Celica ST165

Postby 88_ST165 » Sun Sep 08, 2013 8:02 pm

Here are some pics of my car :D

I'm the third owner, Its 99% stock (had aftermarket BOV, boost controller and turbo timer... Which I have removed), has 184000KM, white exterior on blue leather, no sunroof, no ABS. I'm almost positive its never or been barley driven in the winter as the only rust I have found is slight bubbling on the rear quarter (the upper strut towers are even spotless). The only issue with it is the previous owner managed to put a rod through the block... Soooo........

My plans are to keep this car as close to stock as possible... I'm going to buy a gen2 3S-GTE next year and retrofit it with all the Gen1 stuff (which should be very doable).

The Project has started! :D

I bought a almost complete 88 All-Trac for $500 (I had to drive 5 hrs to get it, but well worth it). It had an encounter with a cement median, bent a few things but didn't touch the engine. It runs very nice, no weird noises, good compression, and not modified etc...

Looks like you have a clean rust free car to start with, always makes it easier.

Not a bad choice on stereo. Did you just want something newer? I figure it wouldn't be too hard to find an old yota stereo.

I have the original stereo, just wanted something to play CD's... Changed my fathers stereo in his Subaru and thought this would look nice a little more vintage then new :D
