I bought my current All-Trac Celica
Turbo brand new. It is still brand new.
Well, I had to change the front wheel
hubs and bearings, one caliper, the
flex pipe, use only sythetic fluids.
Great performance when you keep revs
over 3000 rpm. I put in an oversized
flex pipe(old one wore out), made the
exhaust louder. Amazing. A/C never
charged, still works like new. Stereo
is still great after some parts in it
were replaced by a QUITE reputable
stereo repair place. I saw the car in
all the magazines at the time, went for
a test drive, and ordered it
immediately. Thank you Toyota, I am a
common man that owns an exotic.
Looks, handling, engine sound, all
stock, never in accident performance.
Solid like a LEXUS. Would I give this
car up for a brand new Subaru WRX or
Mitsubishi Evolution? Toyota was ahead
of there time. Today you have to
compromise instead of buying a Toyota.
Simple aftermarket performance upgrades
do the job and increase performance
substantially. Todays all wheel drive
cars might have great performance, but
none can match the looks of a perfect
Black All Trac Celica Turbo. Perfect
for 11 years.
Toyota's 4WD turbocharged Celica was
already pumping out 200hp stock and
winning World Rally Championships in
the early 90's when Subaru's were still
being breast-fed. The extremely potent
3SGTE engine is still winning racing
championships in Japan and Europe, where
it is the 4-cyl. engine of choice for
Toyota tuners. If you are lucky to own
one, this powerful, rare and refined
coupe will only increase in value.
Sorry, but you cannot gauge this
particular model's price based on Edmund's
or Kelley's pricing. Try multiplying the
configured price by at least a factor of
1.5, then start from there.
The rear suspension is one unit, so yo
can't change the shocks alone. The
spring goes as well. Very expensive to
Also, car is too heavy, putting a slight
penalty on power.
