    What to do with this...RHD Celica coupe.

    I'll let the photos speak for themselves. It appeared in my driveway, I dont know what to do with it, but the wife thinks "sell it" is the proper answer. It's grubby but reasonably straight and solid. Sadly the engine and the title are both gone. Seems almost a shame to relegate it to a 24 Hours of Lemons status but that's the leading idea (after the wife's "Sell it" suggestion)

    I've got 4 other project cars going right now so there's really no time for this but it needed saving so I saved it.

    looks like a jdm GT that had a 18rg ,it also should have a disc brake rear end in it as well.
    find a 18rg put it in and sell to some 1 that races or rallys

    According to the previous owner it should indeed have an 18rg in it and it does have the disk brake rear. As much as it would be a fun project I need to learn when to say when. The previous owner is a friend and it was stored at his parents, his mom wanted it gone and was going to call the scrap guy so I saved it but I'd rather sell it and give the kid the money, he could use it seeing as he's a young single dad. I have some interest in the car other places so that's probably what will happen, I'll point any buyers over here as you folks always have the best knowledge about these classics.

    disc brake rear end is a Fseries same as ma47 supra so would be worth a bit of money with the 3.9 ratio

    Talked with the PO tonight, he said he pulled all the relevant numbers and looked it up and it is a 3.9, but its an open diff.

    I'll just put it out there for everyone. The PO (to whom Im going to give the money because he needs it more than me) was asking $2000. I think he was way off base with that price and told him so. I was thinking $1000 is more appropriate but please feel to make me offers lower or higher Like I said the kid is a single father and trying to stay afloat, so I'd just as soon get him whatever I can to help him out than let it sit around my place.
