Description of 1985 Toyota Celica GT-S

It's only original once. I have owned this 1985 Celica convertible since 1986. It was an executive/demo car for Southeast Toyota Distributors (now part of JM Lexus) and comes with rare dealer options: original decals and trunk luggage rack, plus the three-piece hard tonneau cover (parade boot). This rust-free car is as it came from the dealer and it was dealer-serviced for 25 years. I have all service and repair records from 1986, as well as an inventory of dealer-supplied spare parts. It has been garage kept at home and in my office parking garage. It was my daily driver for 20 years and was regularly driven when it became my second car. It shows age typical of a 35-year-old exposed to Florida sun (and fun!).What doesn't work: 1) The sound system. It's original; most owners replaced theirs with aftermarket. I wanted to keep mine original. 2) The trunk support hinges. Replaced: 1) Top and top motor replaced about 15 years ago to original spec cloth and glass window with heater element. 2) Tires: I use 235's instead of the original 225's because they give the car a beefier look with the flared wheel well arches, but the difference is not enough to affect steering or suspension.Some interior plastic has cracked, such as the seat belt guides and one door pocket; replacements are available on eBay.This car has a reserve that reflects its original condition, meticulous, documented maintenance, its rare options and its 34-year owner history, as well as its historical significance. This was a one-year-only model, Toyota's first production convertible and Toyota's last RWD car. Toyota and ASC produced only 4,248 cars, this being one of only 2,532 automatics (three-speed plus overdrive). The rest (1,716) were 5-speed manuals. With a small expenditure, it could be a documented, original museum piece. But it could still be a really fun to drive, daily/weekend driver. Thanks.
