Arch,
It was a one-off concept car. Never went into production. I understand it was designed/built by Toyota's California design house (hence the designation CAL-1).

I think it was supposed to be Japan's answer to the El Camino! :)

Here is another photo of it at a car show:



And another I just found with Google:

It was based on the prototype Supra, which was a stretched version of the Celica.

The CAL-1, Supra and Celica were all designed at Calty, Toyota’s California design studio.

The rear decking opened into a pair of rear seats and the rear window opened into a wind deflector for the rear passengers.

Further portions of the rear decking could be removed to make it into a pickup.

The front was identical to the new Supra (not yet in production) and similar to the 1979 face lift used on the Celica.

Even though it was designed in California, it was right hand drive and had Japanese front mounted mirrors.
