Hi all im picking up a 1981 celica lift back, should be in the garage by the 1st of the year. I have searched the net looking for good info on the car and it doesnít seem to popular. For the most part the car looks clean. Paint is faded, very small rust spot but other than that no body damage. It is missing a tail light cover and thatís my first question, what year tail lights fit? Can I put supra taillights? as there seems to be a lot of them in the junk yard but no plain celicas.
What is the differences between the lift back and the supra? And what will swap over with little to no mods?
This car is also an automatic. Where these trans any good? I have never had good luck with automatics. I would like to make it a stick some day. I have some 4 speeds out of 85-87 pickupís that had 22rís would they work in the car? Are there other models years I could get the clutch master and pedals from?
Anyhow I know nothing about this car and would like as much info as I can get. Also if you have one thatís fixed up I would love to see it.
