1976 Toyota Celica GT Liftback (RA29) from the Northeast!

Post by ccoughenour » December 30th, 2019, 12:11 pm

Hey All! I wanted to introduce myself on the forums, as I am going to try to use them to gather as much information as I can for my 1976 Toyota Celica GT Liftback I picked up late this fall! I am super excited for the next few years, trying to get the car back into it's original shape. I picked it up out of North Carolina, with floors replaced and (not too much) bondo in the body work! Being from NH, in the rare case you could find a 1st Generation Celica - it was either 20k+ or complete rust and bondo! Doing nationwide searches lead me to the area outside of Charlotte, NC where I picked up the car.

Originally a VW Audi kid (these forums look just like the old vwvortex...) I built a few cars in my youth, but really wanted to get into a MKIV Supra. Seeing as how hard they've appreciated, I started looking at their ancestery, and wasn't disappointed when starting to look into 1st gen celicas!

Past Vehicles:

MKIV GTI (First Car)

Audi A3 (Bagged, Stage 2+, all bolt ons w/o bigger turbo)

2014 CB500F / 2015 FZ-09

Current Vehicles
2015 Audi S4 (Sepang, Black Optics, All Options, APR Stage 1 ECU and TCU)
Image

2000 Honda CR-V Beater

I'll be using this thread to update the progress on the car! Hope to either build a 20R/22RE Hybrid or do a beams swap (Up in the air, Hybrid builds seem a little pricey and hard to source these days) along with restoring the missing factory badges and body work! I'll list out the current modification and maintenance when I sit down! I'd like to contribute DIYs for interesting things I've had to deal with (like assembling the brake caliper's, what a massive PITA.)

Thanks guys! :cheers:
