Rising sun yellow: ’78 Toyota Celica Liftback
When the Celica was first introduced it was a huge success. It had a willing engine, nice gearbox and pleasant styling. In fact many people feel these Liftback versions were an interpretation of the Mustang fastback – gills and all. We’ve always liked them and keep a watchful eye for a good. solid example. Are they classics? Not really. Just nice, reliable, fun cars to have. Emphasis on the reliable. Actually, Japanese cars have a very loyal following and this one would cause quite a stir upon arrival. Not Toyota 2000 fuss-level mind you. The yellow paint helps draw you in. What we like about today’s offering, is its originality and condition. It is a 1-family owned car, 41,000 miles with a 5-speed transmission, GT equipment, power brakes and original owner documents.
