The alltrac is only AWD, the GT-4 is just the JDM name for them, you can usually call them an alltrac or a GT-4 and no one would mind. The 1990-1993 alltrac are all the same (minor differences), so you can include 1990 in your search. You will not find an alltrac for $2500, maybe a project car (mine is for sale for $3000) but not a running one, and definitely not a reliable one, if you want a reliable alltrac you need to spend about 9-10 grand. You can pick up a normal running-and-safetied one for about $5000.00

The FWD 'alltracs' are really just normal celica's with an alltrac motors (3SGTE) swapped in, and we usually call them 'Halftracs' they are also rare, you MIGHT be able to find one for $2500, but reliable might be a problem, cause they are swapped motors.

If you drop down to an 88-89 alltrac you might have a better chance finding one for $2500, but again it will need work.

You could probably pick up a Celica-needing-a-motor for $1000.00, and get an alltrac motor (3SGTE) for $1000 (tiger Japanese motors) and pay someone to put it in, but I don't know anyone who would do it for $500, but you would be getting close to your goal.

Thanks!! yea im new dunno how much they go for. I know the normal celicas, they arent much. I was looking at a very mint gts for only $2400. Unfortunately, he cannot wait till june to sell it. :( . If i cant get an alltrac. A normal 5spd celica gts is fine. I know for sure i could find a pretty good condition one for my asking price. Have seen more then enough already. Thanks again!

oooo, actually, thats a mistake. 90s are fine too. The newer the better, im not buying the car, my parents are, and they hate old cars like crazy. They are ok with something in the 90s but 80s or even late 80s, dun bother lol.

Personally, i have a REAL hard time spending that kind of money on a high mileage 18 year old car, regardless of how well it runs NOW.

Unless it's a collectable or a performance car.

Unfortunately, this is neither. But in the end, you're buying it, not me.

If i were in your shoes, i'd take the $2500 your parents are chipping in, save another $1000, and get a mid 90s BMW 3-series, but that's just me.

If you want a celica, this one sounds nice enough that i may be coerced into buying it, depending on what exactly the "interior mods" are. I don't do rice.

I'd sell my Celica for $2500.... really all you'd be giving up on that GTS is the stereo and interior bells and whistles.

They are everywhere. Go on Kijjiji.ca and look up Celica in Toronto... At least 3 of them up for sale, all overpriced.
