ok i have a fully built race car st185 gts hatch , coil overs, cage, racing seat, harness, willwood brakes sway bar, and gutted interior, i am thinking about sell the body with no engine.. i have a built engine that should produce 500hp but im not installing it do to cost on finishing project.... you think any one would buy a shell? ok here is why i ask this question i bought a awd rear end and i started to do a conversion from fwd to awd and i stopped half way.... does anyone want to take over the awd project or do you think its even sellable? ya i kicked my self in the ass when i started to fabb the rear end in....

well guys you think a raced celica st185 shell with a non compleate awd conversion would sell?

Nobody can really answer this. You have to make the decision and live with it. If you can get the money out of it, that you put into it then so be it. I personally like to keep projects until I absolutely can't complete them.

ST185 & GTS are two different cars, not the same thing.

If you can't afford it, try to sell it, but be prepared to possibly hold on to it for a long time or take a loss...

That is a specific chassis code.
It's related to generation, but is specific to certain models within it.
You have an ST184 [as stated].

5th gens are
AT180 [FWD w 4AFE]
ST184 [FWD w 5SFE]
ST185 [AWD w 3SGTE]

There is also an ST183 [FWD w 3SGE].

ST165 is the 87 - 89 AWD
ST204 is the 94 - 99 FWD w 5SFE
ST205 is the 94 - 99 AWD w 3SGTE

ect, ect.
