Pair of 1990 Celica Alltracs!

Postby r-town » Mon Mar 24, 2014 7:54 pm

Guys last year I bought a 1990 Celica Alltrac off a forum member from this site. I'm currently daily driving it after my Celica convertible took a dump.

Here it is:

The car needs a paint job, interior work, and minor work on the engine bay. Last friday, I was looking for some celica parts on craigslist. After doing some deep searches, I found a 1990 Celica Alltrac that was crashed, so I texted the owner to see if he could part out the seats for the above Celica. He replied, and asked me to make him an offer for the whole car (he wanted $1200, I didn't had all that money to spend on parts). I made him an offer, one thing leads to another, and now I own a second ST185. My first intentions were to use it as a parts car. But when picking up the car, I was surprised it was very clean besides the hits. Now I'm tempted to restore it and bring it back to life.

Here are some pictures:

Got this car for $400 + $140 tow = $540 with a title :D

A-pillar is damaged as well as the radiator, radiator support, headlights, AC condenser, and front bumper. No frame damage though :D. Going to have a buddy that does body work as a side job do a quote on this to see if is worth it or just use it as parts.

I don't think US shipping will be a problem for him.
Although Inland Empire sounds like a foreign location, it's actually a region in SoCal near Los Angeles.

What up man, I'm from Bloomington. Yeah, it was a pain to bring it all the way from La Mirada. The car is pretty clean, I am the third owner. The first owner always garaged the car, thats why the paint looks really good. Right know I just removed the fenders and damaged bumper. I will need to order the radiator support upper tier bar, and replace it. The A-pillar/roof shouldn't be a problem for my auto body guy that I know. I'm thinking of deleting the sunroof.

i think u can buy th radiator support bar from this place in san bernardino. its called inland empire collison. its off of mill st right before hitting waterman ave. i remember going to buy one with my buddy and it only cost him like $25. but u should really fix it instead of parting out!! they are jus to rare to find these day..

Ok, I just googled it, I now know exactly where it is. Went to Ecology Autoparts on Slover ave in Fontana, and found some decent Celicas with the part, but the spot welds make it hard to achieve a clean removal. I figured an aftermarket will be better.

lols, i was there about 2 weeks ago. i was looking at the white GTS up against the brick wall after the rail road railings. i pulled the center piece off the rear of the car between the lights and bumper. then i bolted it back up because i wasnt too sure if it will fit the alltrac. plus, i came up on ls400 4piston calipers from there as well....

I got the sunroof out of that white GTS, I'm waiting for 50% sale event so I can go a cut the A-pillar from that car. The cashiers are really bitchy though wont give me a pricing unless a bring the part. Overall, I think LkQ pick-a-part has better prices.
