Description for Toyota Celica 1985

Time to get your hands on a limited edition droptop before the market for Japanese classics gets any hotter. This 1985 Toyota Celica GTS convertible is a well-preserved and well-presented example that will provide you with plenty of driving smiles and a ton of growing admiration.

The design of the third-generation Celica has matured into a terrific overall presentation. And you understand that exceptionally well thanks to meticulous care to this example. After all, the angular front end wouldn't be so attractive if the headlight doors didn't still fit flush. The dip in the trunk line needs to be crisp to really get noticed. Plus, the flared wheel arches and large factory GTS wheels really gave Toyota a sporty presence in the '80s. The red paint is bold and has a nice shine that looks good on sunny days - exactly what you want on a sunshine-friendly convertible. But even on the gray days, the black folding roof is a great coordinate with the chin spoiler, trim, front end, and rear bumper to almost give this one a two-tone effect. The roof is what makes this rare. The convertible was a specially completed by American Sunroof Corporation (ASC) for Toyota, and they only offered it on the final two years of this generation. It was an expensive option, and so it's estimated that around only 4,500 were produced in total.

Toyota gave this Celica GTS a unique-looking bucket seat interior, and so we are glad to see it so well preserved on this example. In fact, it doesn't even look like this convertible was ever left out in the sun. More than just distinctive, this is a comfortable cloth setup that comes loaded. Power locks, an alarm system, tilt wheel, power steering, and an AM/FM/cassette stereo w/equalizer give this correct interior a luxury feeling. Plus, you have power windows and a power convertible top. That means you can go from enclosed comfort to a wind-in-your-hair experience without leaving your driver's seat. And because the air conditioning is blowing cold with modern R134a, you can comfortably enjoy top-down motoring all through the summer.

The 2.4-liter motor is believed to be original to the car. These fuel-injected powerhouses have the kind of bulletproof reputation that is the backbone of Toyota, and this one runs strong like a respected and maintained classic should. Toyota fans know this model as the last of the rear-wheel drive Celicas, and this was its final year. They love the nimble steering, four-wheel power disc brakes, and the GTS's fully-independent suspension. Plus, the five-speed manual transmission keeps you firmly control of all the action.

Even the showroom pictures prove, this is a complete and well-preserved droptop that's loaded with all the best features. And if you act fast, it can all be yours for quite a nice price. Call today!!!
