1970 Toyota Celica 1600 GT Mk.I [TA22] - CELICA

The Celica has been one of Toyota’s best loved sports inspired cars spanning over 30 years and seven generations. The 1st generation has become a real classic with its Mustang styling cues. The car made its debut at the 1970 Tokyo Motorshow and went on to conquer the world. The GT was the sportiest of the Celica range with body striping, and mean hood vents. The pillar less windows on the coupe gave the car a fresh and timeless style and have become a sought after collectors car in recent years. This lovely yellow example of the GT coupe was photographed on display at the magnificent Toyota Automotive Museum in Nagoya, Japan.
