86 Celica Gts

Recommended Posts

So i might have a chance to buy an 86 toyota celica gts, now i dont know much of these cars but id like to hear some more imput, like all the options that were avaivilbe for the car and if the gts came with only the 3sge and if a 3sgte swap is easy or even possible, im looking into making a nice daily drive that has some power, decent suspesnion but will still get me through the snow, maybe like to know all possible colors the car came in, might want to do a full restore on it (full restore on an 86 celica? one might say) ya why not ha

That was a pretty popular generation for the Celicas - 4th gen, ST162 chassis. The S-series engines were pretty close to bullet-proof as you could get. They also take power mods very well compared to the A-series engines. You could swap in a 3SGTE, but with a FWD platform and lightweight, might not get quite the kick you would get if you swapped that in to say a RWD Corolla or MR2. The 3SGE made 150HP from the factory and was pretty quick in its day (I used to have one in HS).

 

Scionlife.com has a very comprehensive listing of the available model, years, chassis and engine codes, and paint codes for many Toyota cars:

They still making rotary engines?

 

Yeah, Mazda RX-8

My parents used to drive RX-7s and they were great cars. If I could get my hands on a cherry one now, I'd dump the Corolla for it in a Nanosecond. Their last RX-7 GSL-SE was a truly awesome car; 20 years later that car puts many a new car to shame.

It would be interesting to poll Corolla owners to see what other car they would have, if they didn't have a Corolla.

mk1 mr-2 5spd 4agze or a swapped hybrid 7agze in red, blue, or black.
