1972 Toyota Celica
As the eternal rival of the Honda Prelude be, the Toyota Celica is a I4-powered coupe introduced several years prior to the Prelude. Breaking down the word Celica means the Spanish word “heavenly” or “celestial” and seems to inspire light and airy composition.
Built at the Tahara plant in Tahara Japan, Celica convertibles receive final assembly in conversion in California. Through seven generations, the Celica has numerous revisions and design advancements even further away to keep the original styling and driving enjoyment to emphasize.
The first Celica STs arrived in America in 1971, and only as a two-dour sports coupe. It was an instant success with its 1.9-liter 8R-C SOHC four-cylinder carburetor marked. Only four-speed manual gearbox, replaced the following year a larger 18R-C engine, the original.
The modern and most powerful of all Celica’s, the Ultimate came with a turbocharged 2.0-liter engine and full-time four-wheel drive. The All-Trac model came with a ten-speaker sound system, powered driver’s seat and sunroof and leather interior.
