76' RA23 from Sydney Australia

Post by ajax_h_ » August 20th, 2014, 8:08 pm

Hey everyone long time lurker, first time poster

My name is AJ and I'm a 20 year old from Sydney, Australia. I've been into cars ever since I was little and after a long time of driving my brothers ae92 corolla seca, I decided it was time to get my own car that I would enjoy. Being an apprentice mechanic at the time, a lot of my workmates had a lot of old school toyotas (there were three ke70s, an aw11 mr2 & an ae86 levin) therefore I had to be apart of the group! I was originally on the hunt for a ke70/ae71 but after looking at this celica I knew I just had to have it. Anyway enough rambling here it is.

It's a 1976 LT Celica RA23 with an 18rc.
I've lowered it and put wheels on it for now but more mods will come. :D

Thanks a lot guys, it's not as clean as it is in pictures though haha :?

This is the only photo I have of the interior at the moment.
Plans are to:
- Redo whole interior from tan to black.
- Get new carpet in.
- Retrim seats as they have a couple tears.
- Get custom mats made up.
- Original shift knob.
- New shift boot.
- Nardi classic.

If my calculations are correct, when this baby hits 88 miles per hour... you're gonna see some serious $#!+.
