FS: 1985 RA64 Celica Turbo (Hatch) - Minty clean, Fully Built ★☆
up for sale is my 85 RA64 Celica Turbo (Hatch). This is a highly modified street car that has seen a lot of time, money, & care put into it.
The entire vehicle is composed of high quality, functional parts, with excellent fit, finish, installation & purpose. Many of these components have been custom fabricated for ideal fit/finish + integration. I am only selling to move onto a new chassis. This is not a hack-job, junk yard turbo set up. This is truly a "complete package", including fully built / forged motor (right down to custom oil squirters), SDS full stand-alone engine management, beautiful equal length tubular exhaust manifold, massive Spearco intercooler core with proper shrouding (custom built out of light weight aluminum), custom hammer-finished 2.5" mandrel bent boost piping, full 304 Stainless Steel 3" turbo-back exhaust system (3" mandrel bent downpipe, 3" straight pipe with axle-back dump), 7.5" Supra LSD-equipped rear end + rear disk brake assemblies, Custom 1-piece light weight drive shaft, 16x8J ARE (manufactured by Enkei, Made in Japan) 2 piece meshies (polished lips, silver faces) wrapped in 245/45/R16 Sumitomo HTRZ II's, etc.

This has been an absolutely phenomenal car for me. I have driven it from Edmonton to Vancouver many times, with no issues. This has been my daily (summer) driver, taking me to work & back, as well as weekend / evening cruises, & 'spirited' mountain driving. In that time, we've cleaned up a lot, modified a number of components, did a complete mechanical refresher, as well as implemented some new additions.

Absolute blast to drive. Sounds unbelievable at idle, & better yet under WOT load. Pulls very, very hard, has no problem throwing out the rear, lighting up tires, & getting you into trouble.

Ran a 12.9 second 1/4 mile time @ 111 MPH @ 10 PSI.

For most of my ownership, it's been run off the wastegate spring (7 PSI). Currently tuned running 12 PSI.

I just need a cheap daily driver now, I dont really track it or anything. I know someone else could enjoy this more than myself! Had it for about 2 years and I`ve picked up a 85 JDM Civic already.

Replaced an 3rd gen Celica with a Civic? I'm offended, honestly.
