Hmm. A lot. Way, way more than the one you're looking at, but it has far less miles and is also equipped with 4WD. :D

Seriously. Offer $2500, 'cause it's guaranteed to need something.

^^^ Agreed. I paid 4k for mine 1.5 years ago and that's because the body is immaculate. 3 weeks after my purchase, the motor threw a rod bearing in cyl. 3.... Another 1k into a new motor and associated parts. Stupid me didn't replace the clutch at the same time and just got finished with a 2-day-motor-out-then-in-again clutch job in the jaws of a Michigan winter... :(

At least there's no rust :)

I have a 94 ST that I haven't decided if it's a parts car or not.
I paid $500 in it, but the wiring is a mess. It has 105k miles on the chassis, absolutely no rust, and a 60 kilometer 7AFE from Japan.

i dont see paying more then 2k for a 6th gen unless its a gt4 then 2k in that case is a huge steal

it all depends where you live, toyotas are expensive here especially anything around or after 1995 (cept a toyota truck they can still get up high even in the late 80s models). With that said im seeing 6th gens between 2500-5000k around here. They are actaully selling for between the same or more than a 7th gen

i paid 800 for mine with 173,xxx miles on it and slight body damage

$2,500 sounds like a good offer on the car. If he wants $3k for it and it's actually worth $3k, the car has to be pristine, all maintenance done with proof, new tires, and capable of winning car shows because the finish is in such good shape. But for a car that old with that many miles... $2-$2,500. That's about it.

I bought one of mine for $6,500, five years ago. Four years ago, another one for $7,400. Three years ago, $300. February this year, $250. Just depends on where the car is, who the seller is, etc. I could have bought a '96 ST that still ran, had slight body damage, and needed a new clutch for $580, but I passed on that one in lieu of the $250 Celica.

I got my 1994 Celica GT for $700. The Engine and Tranny are good. But the body needs some serious love. I'm hoping to have this baby looking good as new By the end of the year.

94 GT $5K 6 years ago from dealer. 140K on it and they hid most of the issues pretty well. Wasn't a good deal, but I'm happy I have the car now that it's getting into shape.

My first 6g was a 94 gt hatch, bought it from the dealership in.. 1999 or 2000 I think? It was something like 8 or 9,000, I don't recall because it lasted less than a year before a drunk pulled out of a bar and totaled it. I replaced it with a 94 gt coupe in late 2000 or early 2001. I got that one from one of those tiny parking lot used car places for 4k. It ended up being in great condition and was a good deal then.

I think I have a piece from that car Spooney. Because if you sold the trunk lid to Alex Ngo (from 6gc), he wound up with his car getting totalled also, and now I have the trunk lid.

Just purchased a Black 94 GT hatchback for $350, it has 263K and runs. Needs a water pump, radiator cooling fan rewired properly, just replaced the leather seats, the AC/heater controls,carpet and the radio. Plan to replace the waterpump and timing belt this weekend. The brake pads, rotors and new tires are also in order.

Holy crap sir. Alex is my brother in law who I sold the car (named T-spoon) to. So yes, same car, and sadly it's dead (he has a G35 now). Did you repaint the trunk lid, leave it blue, or discover the original teal underneath? I'm glad to hear at least a small part of the car is still on the road.

As of 2011: Rice-r owners outnumber OEM owners, so i would say your stock -no rust, although high mileage 6th gen is still up in the 3k-5k range. i've been looking around and most of the riced out celica's are still going for 2k-3k with little to no rust... i think if you picked up a stock celica with original everything, good to excellent interior, 3-5k is a fair price since those are super hard to come by these days!!
