We’ve seen low mileage Celica Liftbacks before (both yellow, oddly enough), but this is the first Coupe. According to the seller, this 1974 Toyota Celica had just one owner for the first 34 years of its life. When he passed, the current seller acquired it in the estate sale with the plans of making it a “hot rod,” whatever that means.
But after taking a whiff of that ’74 new-car smell, he couldn’t bring himself to cut up a 25,000-mile gem. That’s great news for the collector who will shell out at least 51 Benjamins (and reserve not met!) for this red cherry.
Going by the photos, it could probably use a thorough detailing, but thus far this is the lowest mileage coupe we’ve seen and it’s got a full ownership history.
Thanks to Jeff W. for the tip!
