I have an 84 celicasupra i have been contemplating selling. it is a project car by all means. but i have done some significant work to it over the last year or so.

i have "weather proofed" the body with an anti rust primer done propperly but kept in mind that it was not a permanate paint job.

i have also had a wiring harness installed via Junkie to allow me to swap in an 89 7mgte toyota supra motor rather than the stock 5mge.

the original 5mge recently threw a rod and was replaced with an 88 5mge, which may have blown a valve seal. (currently installed)

the mileage is unknown, the speedo when i got it was missing. the car was completely gutted, including ac, power steering, interior wiring, interior, pretty much down to sheet metal and motor.

at one point i did re-install the power steering but it leaks at the rack so i did remove it again.

i have installed black/ grey cloth interior, black head liner, seats, lights, tail lights, wiring window motors and windows.

the rear passenger side had some damage but it has been some-what fixed. a proffessional would be able to do much more.
i have also installed newer kyb struts in the rear, st springs in the rear, eibach springs in the front.

i have replaced the brake cylinder, clutch slave cylinder and many other parts.

everything now works with the exeption of the heater blower and cruise control.


Whats left to do:

power steering
suspension needs some attention,
trans shifter bushings,
clutch
tires
paint job
exhaust
body still has some dents
allignment
motor, either another 5m/ 6m or a 7mge (89-91) 7mgte(89-91) will be direct replacements harness by Junkie

everything i have done to the car was done with car and brought to look as stock as possible.

I would say its a $1k car at best. With all the work/money it still needs someone can just go out and buy a clean mk2 for that price without the hassle.

X2 : 1K at best:

This could be a pretty good example, just spoke with the lady...car drives with no issues, current emissions, runs great.

Lol how is that car a good example... It's nothing like the car for sale.

Michael you will be lucky to get 500 bucks for a car with a list of needs that long. Sorry.

It is def. worth more to me to finish it, and keep it. I'm not dumb.
It wasn't too bad until it started eating 5m's.
if you think that list is long you should have seen it when i got it, :ugh:
