It's only 500 it's a 5 speed something (guy is clueless) he was building it to be a muddy roundy round car. I was going to buy it restore it to stock swap a bigger engine or something in it maybe then throw the cage back in.

It's stock except for what u see. What do u guys think? I'm checking if it's a clear title or not then going to see it tomorrow most likely.

Boy that's in lousy shape. 500 is kind of generous IMO, but dunno. Kind of hard to tell much about it from the pic other than the mostly bondo quarter and missing lights and such

Just remember this if you're gonna swap, it's an ST, so will require some fabrication to get a 3SGTE in there if that's what you mean by bigger motor.

That looks like the 1/4 panel on my old GT...but better.

Yeah I'd pass.

$150 at best.

I'd say free is being generous, unless you are gonna rally in it...and you have a lot of money to dump, find a different celi.

Ya, the only way i would get that is for parts, if it has any.... and 500 is too much IMO.

$500 for an ST in that shape is too much.

I wouldn't go more than $200.

what am I missing...how do you guys know its an ST for sure and not a GT coupe? The 4 lug wheels? I would DEFFINATELY talk that down about $400, especially with that huge gob of bondo, and bondo kinda sucks.

If you want a 5 speed, go to your local junkyard. If they dont have any, hit up car-part.com or http://www.rockauto.com/

Ding!

The only 5th Gen to come with 4 lugs was the ST, all other trims had 5 lugs.

4th Gens are different, only GT-S and Alltrac had 5 lug, ST and GT were 4 lug.

3rd Gen and lower, all were 4 lug.

6th Gen and higher, all were 5 lug.

5th Gen, `90-`91 STs came 4 lug, `92 and up all Celicas where 5 lug.

thats what I thought but wasnt completely sure, thanks for the clarification.

I feel bad for that car, has no one to love it anymore...

ciento I've spent about $600 total so far on my celica and look at what it ended up becoming, a lot better than that thing dontcha think?
