I don't know, the work gone into it sounds about right for a Car like that in Japan. It has a nice 20V swap, nice SSR MKII wheels, interesting fender flares, it's an AA63 so it has IRS and I think in Japan they had some crazy short gears something like 4.55:1 or something around there. Something more than what we got here. I don't know what kind suspension upgrades they got either.

Man, I just want that interior, especially the seats! The back seats match the front, and they look like they could have come from the factory.

It’s that cheap because it would never pass inspection. Look at the rust holes and bubbles. Need deported to the states where one of us can resurrect it.

The cool part is you wouldn’t have to do all the import paperwork. Just swap the bits over to a usdm market celica coupe! Then turn the jdm coupe into something neat.

Wait, really? It's a whole car, so how would you bring it in as a parts car?

I would totally do that. Swap it all over to a USDM coupe, maybe even do an RHD conversion...

I thought regardless of shape it would need to be cut in half to be imported to the US for "parts".
