4610 Pet Lane
This 1989 Toyota Celica GT convertible is a low-mileage, loaded, and survivor-grade example that will provide you with plenty of driving smiles and a ton of growing admiration.
The design of the third-generation Celica has always held a special place with enthusiasts. It mixed some of their most reliable components with a very sporty style. The hidden headlight front end, color-matched bumpers, full-length pinstriping, and svelte proportions live up to the GT part of the name. The robustness part of the car's reputation is seen in its highly original presentation. The white paint shows all the right signs of being the factory application, and it continues to have the kind of gloss you want on a sunshine friendly convertible. This level of care is also attributed to a car that has averaged less than 2,600 miles annually. So you have a classic that with good-looking panels and nice fundamentals - right down to the pliable weather-stripping.
We like the look of the black convertible top against the white paint, and the same light/dark contrast happens when you take the roof down. The dark charcoal interior looks highly original, and the low mileage is part of a reminder why the wear is far less than you'd expect on the average 30+ year-old classic. The smooth dash, good carpeting, and comfy fabric seats (always a plus in a convertible) make this feel like a nice place to spend some time. We also like this one because it's loaded with the best features. It includes a tilt steering column, full gauge package, center console, power locks, and the factory AM/FM/cassette stereo. Plus, you have power windows and a power convertible top. That means any time you want, you can go from enclosed comfort to a wind-in-your-hair experience without leaving your driver's seat. And because the factory air conditioning is blowing cold with R134a refrigerant, you can comfortably enjoy top-down motoring all through the summer season.
Under the hood is part of what makes this car so desirable. The 2.0-liter four-cylinder is a 16-valve DOHC and fuel-injected unit. That means it's both a peppy and fuel-efficient powerhouse. And this is the kind of motor that has earned a nearly indestructible reputation in other Toyotas like the Camry. And while that one is a family car, this is a nimble sports car with a fully-independent suspension. Plus, features like cruise control, power steering, power brakes w/front discs, and four-speed automatic transmission with highway-friendly overdrive make this a terrific all-around cruiser.
The sale comes complete with the owner's manual packet and convertible soft boot. This is a terrific drop-top import in a rapidly appreciating market. So grab this Celica now while it's still so affordable. Call today!!!
