It had a little rust , had to cut about 2' of fender and fab. had lots of light rust all over so I sanded it down to bare medal. I have a pic in the intro post of it in grey primer but it was striped and epoxy primed. also the front and rear window seals were rotten that's why the window is out.

here in the 515? If so you must have the DOHC , 76-77 were the only one that came in mass to the US as far as the fastbacks go.

at the moment restoring it really wasnt in the plan... I really just wanted something else to drive while I tinker with my FRS. so running and driving were my only real concerns.. but ive already had a few generous offers for it so who knows I might part with it. but i doubt it.

I see you selling your jdm celica online, you should try selling it to someone in the uk they pay big bucks for it there.
