1992 Toyota Celica GT4 RC Carlos Sainz (ST185) UK Auction

Postby Paulytunes » Mon Oct 17, 2022 12:38 am

I happened to stumble upon this online:

https://www.brightwells.com/timed-sale/5244/lot/595586

Although I am really tempted, it will likely sell for more than my budget and then the whole logistics and cost of getting the car shipped to the U.S. is probably out of my reach/realm of expertise. The car certainly appears to need some cosmetic work completed, and there appears to be some rust, but it's nearly impossible to tell how extensive from the photos. Someone talk me out of this ;)

UK cars often have rust. Those without are the rare ones.

Damn that's a beautiful car. You can see the rust starting under it and on the rockers though. The paint looks like the final version of what Lazarus will be. Super clean on the inside as well. This should go for big bucks regardless of the rust.

The rust didn't see too unreasonable until I saw that trunk floor. I'm guessing the underside is pretty rough. I'm very curious to see what it goes for though.

And it looks like the reserve has been met, so high bidder takes it home.

The final price was £9,300 or $10,800 USD or $14,600 CAD. That's fairly close to what I wanted for mine.

The posted hammer price (I guess that includes fees) was £10,416, or $12,113. Assuming a fee of about $2,000 to $2,500 to ship to the U.S. east coast, landed price would be just under $15k. The amount of rust in the photos was a little concerning to me, especially not seeing it in person.

14-15k seems like the going rate lately. the unknown underbody is sus, but overall not bad.
