    So I have just taken this little beauty off my mates hands after being his mobile mechanic for him :D
    Car is in exceptional condition (well once buff the thing up) with just some rear arch work to sort and around the one windshield post.
    I need to track down a few bits that I'll not be able to repair or fabricate.
    One item being the smoked front grill with Toyota wording in it as this has a crack through it.

    Mechanical work needed is a new radiator and solenoids for the auto box as it will not select O/D and already changed the temp sensors. I did originally clean up the solenoids for my mate when he owned it and this fixed it for about 3 months. So now know new one's will hopefully sort issue.
    Here's a few pics as it is at the moment.

    Cool :cool: Not too far away from Coventry then.

    Try TCB parts in Cornwall, they're usually very good on spare parts, and join up the Celica Club which should help a great deal.

    Hi and welcome.

    Nice Celica you have there...must be one of the last with it being on a G plate. Looking forward to seeing some updates :)

    With regards to parts, dont forget good ol eBay is still a good resource for these. I've always managed to get replacement parts or if someone breaking an entire car on there, those can yeld some good bits. Takes a bit of searching is all :)

    welcome !

    Early version 3S-GE without the O2 sensor I see? I have some spares left from my old engine, exhaust manifold, sparkplugs, dizzy or maybe what else you would need.

    Hope it runs fine shortly !
