NEW to 1G from PA.

Postby jdmreddy » June 14th, 2014, 5:27 am

Hey guys - gals!

I've been searching for a ra29, for a few years now
And spotted this 76 liftback in an old garage

Stopped talked with the guy and purchased the beaut for a whopping sum of 700
Plus's 8 hours of driving to go back for it!!

A bit of dust....

And then a carwash visit for the great unveiling

It does run now! Haha

A guy drove it up to PA from Florida in 98 and parked it a few months afterwards

Sat there since!!


I had to flush the gas tank
rebuild the carb
new fuel pump
And new points set

Fires right up and rolls down the road!

(Admittedly a bit of tire shake) haha

Welcome to !stgencelica.com!

nice find! how is the structural integrity of the chassis rust wise? Interior?

I'm from the southeast corner Lancaster co.
How about you??

As far as rust this is just weird surface rust from humidity and such
I did find rust under the rear window seal
What have u guys done for that tricky area??

I'm glad to see celica guys from the area!!

This car had to be purchased when the opportunity arose and now its OK with me if the restoration takes a couple years so long as I do it correctly!!! Haha
