Vehicle Story

This 1985 Toyota Celica GT-S convertible has been in Florida since new and receives power from a 2.2-liter 22RE inline-4 paired with a 5-speed manual transmission. Within the last few years, it received a replacement slave cylinder, new valve cover gaskets, a distributor, an ignition coil, an oil change, and suspension work. Features include a retractable top, four-wheel power disc brakes, and body-colored fender flares. Finished in red with a black cloth top over a gray cloth interior, this third-generation Celica is now offered with an owner’s manual, a copy of the original title, a clean CARFAX report, and a clear Florida title in the seller’s name.

The Celica name dates back to 1971 when the model debuted at the Tokyo Motor Show as a two-door hardtop coupe and was subsequently offered as a liftback and a convertible. The third-generation model came to market in 1981 on the A60 chassis and received a restyled grille and fully retractable headlights in 1984. This unmodified Celica from 1985 is one of approximately 4,500 convertibles produced across the 1984 and 1985 model years combined. Each of those convertibles received customization when new from American Sunroof Company (ASC) in California. The red body is equipped with a black cloth retractable top, pop-up headlights, color-keyed fender flares, black side moldings, and GT-S badging. The seller notes that the hood was resprayed under prior ownership and that the power top currently does not work because it needs a new electric motor.

Machined aluminum 14-inch wheels are wrapped in tires with black sidewall lettering.

The cabin is fitted with gray cloth bucket front seats and a matching rear bench and door panels combined with black materials for the center console, dash, and steering wheel. Amenities include air conditioning, cruise control, power windows, power door locks, an aftermarket radio, and a carpeted trunk.  

Vehicle information is shared through a 130-mph speedometer, an 8K-rpm tachometer, and auxiliary readouts for the fuel level, coolant temperature, oil pressure, and voltage. The six-digit mechanical odometer reads 238K miles, which is supported by the CARFAX report.

The fuel-injected 22RE 2.2-liter inline-4 was rated at 116 horsepower and 140 lb-ft of torque when new. An oil change was performed recently. The CARFAX shows other historic maintenance including the replacement of the valve cover gaskets, exhaust manifold, distributor, ignition coil, and tie rod ends at a Toyota dealership in 2019. The slave cylinder was also reportedly replaced within the last six months. Power is sent to the rear wheels via a console-shifted 5-speed manual transmission.

The seller notes the presence of slight surface rust on the underbody. All GT-S models had power steering and a four-wheel independent suspension. Braking is handled by power-assisted discs.

The CARFAX report shows a vehicle history free of accidents or damage. The sale includes an owner’s manual and the original Florida title.

If you pass on this one, there are a couple more for sale with lower miles nationwide on the "Web". I am not sure they run, drive, handle or look much better than mine. They are, however, a little more expensive. This could be your last chance at this rare car for a very reasonable price.

I had the front seats' scuff and stretch marks dyed a few days ago and they look great!

I forgot about my original owner's manual in the glove compartment. Also, an interior guy did a great job dying the scuff and stretch marks on the upper and thigh bolster supports of the front seats. They almost look new again. You folks that like convertibles, don't like burning a lot of gas, don't like breaking down and prefer to drive your cars as opposed to talking about them this is the car for you.

this is what the "Gear Head" down the street wants me to do because he does not have the $$ to buy it yet. It looks cool but I hate to break-up a #s matching rare car.
