1990 Toyota Celica GT 2dr Hatchback


Got this from a private owner that said the car was in tiptop shape. However, buyer beware as the clutch had to be changed, not adjusted, as the seller claimed. New clutch at 133k. Power steering hoses were shot too, so we changed those. Heater hose started to leak so we removed them. Replaced the sparkplug wires, sparkplugs, distributor cap & rotor, with original Toyota parts, at 145k. Put 92 Octane Chevron with its patented cleaner & the car runs like a top. Got other fluid leaks we need to fix, but the shop wanted $1,600 for it. Need to check the brakes pads too. Right now, it's go, go, go around our little island.

Best Features

Driving a 5 speed is fun as the engine revs up quickly.

Worst Features

So far, parts haven't been a problem, but we haven't tried to replace the broken windshield washer holder, or the burnt fuse box cover.
