Not about Celica's but it's Toyota. Check this out.

Enjoy!

In picture 3 I think I see two 1st gens, at least it looks like it from the hoods, they have the Mopar style vents and front flipping hood.

It does look like first Gen Celicas. Possibly GTV since it has the longer vents or flutes. I've owned two 1st gens and does definitely appear to be 1st gen GTV.

If I can only travel to Cyprus right now, and bathe in the nostalgic feeling of this old dealership. It's like traveling back in time. I can only wonder how many valuable trinkets and easter eggs we'll find.

I wonder who owns them, and what the cost to transport a few of them to the US would be :biggrin:

This one is definitely a first gen, looks like a coupe:



I think the green car beside the red one is a first gen liftback, but it seems to be missing the accents behind the window (edit: nope, the hood's flipped the wrong way. Not sure what it is then)

That green one might be a Toyota Crown and not a Celica. That yellow one right behind the green one is definitely a 1st gen Celica.

You know these cars barely have any rust, corrosion, or wear and tear? I can guarantee you take a antiseptic wipe, and wipe these cars, they'll shine like brand new veneers. :biggrin:

All these cars are definitely pre '77. (edit: article says photos was the fall of Cyprus that started in 1974)

I'd love to invest to bring all these cars to the states. Sigh....

Yea I was thinking the same thing, the rear pillars aren't celica. From what I can tell it looks like the uncommon Corona MKII Coupe

And now I want one. It looks a bit like a mini Challenger, especially with that stripe.

There are quite a few nice and attractive classic Toyotas that I'm not sure if we ever got in the US.

Didn't know there was a Corona Truck :heh:
