If you're into Toyotas, Celicas, convertibles, or just really unique or rare cars, this one is worth a serious look. This is 1 of only 500 '80 Celicas converted by Griffith Motor Corporation into a targa convertible. It was a completely engineered effort, including reinforced A-pillars and front windshield frame, reinforced fiberglass targa top, structurally rigid roll bar, and plenty of undercarriage bracing and gussetting. This was a $3000 option on a car that retailed for $7-8k originally, so this was not a cheap option. This car has been exceptionally well maintained and has less than 90k original miles. The legendary 20R 4- cylinder runs flawlessly, and EVERYTHING on this car works, down to the factory AM/FM radio and every light, gauge, and option--even the digital quartz clock keeps good time. It's had a new carburetor, clutch, throw out bearing, slave cylinder, shocks, springs, belts, hoses, exhaust, and tires installed in the past 5 years. It also comes with an original Haynes service manual for Celicas, plus lots of other history, literature, and receipts for work done. It starts so easy you'd swear it was fuel injected. The red paint is a color change (originally brown) and shows nice, and this body is 99.5% rust free and has never had body work or panels replaced beyond the work needed to repaint it. The factory luggage rack even has original oak strips. This car is reliable enough to drive any distance, any time. Needs nothing. Car is every bit as clean in person as shown in the pics. You'll likely never see one of these for sale again, as it's estimated less than 100 are still roadworthy today. $9300 obo.
