Richie, you're being too quick to judge - wheels, interior and engine bay look totally original

BTW did you spot the pop up lights!? 😆

To be fair, one doesn't have to kill the whole car with fire; just rip off all the fibreglass and burn that to dust. Then one can see if the rest is salvageable...

Smile I just bought this!!!

Just joined the forum when I saw you guys had mentioned the car in question.


I just bought it as my next project.

Yes I want to make it mostly original too including putting back the original front lights.

Non runner.

Not viewed it.

It looked pretty original underneath the exterior fibreglassing from the photo's.

But hopefully when I get it delivered this week it will be good and mostly rust free.


Wish me luck.


My name is Antonio.

I have an MR2 Turbo.
A Celica GT4 ST185 Spec-A
And another red GT4 which is for sale.


MR2 is currently waiting for me to build the engine!!!!
700HP capable!

Thanks.

Will upload pics when it arrives.




Might need a new bonnet and front and rear bumpers .etc to convert back to standard'ish....

I assume parts are readily available second hand?

I like wide arches, generally the riveted on type, but these might be okay... Will probably leave them on there and work with them.

One assumption to far I'm afraid.....but isnt that the sort of thing you should find out prior to purchase

Any significant body panel will be difficult/spendy (compared to many classics such as Escorts or MG's)
Some will be almost impossible to source.

Lets not forget there are only a handful of these cars in the UK

Good luck

Bonnet, i believe is second hand only, unless your going carbon fibre!

Serviceable second hand bumpers rarely come up for sale.

Bumpers no longer available new in chrome, but are available new in stainless steel, which by all accounts are excellent value for money.
Although saying that, im not sure if they do the 2+2 rear bumper

fibre glass bonnets !

The Harrington s/steel bumpers do not fit the 2+2 but you can always fit fibre glass ones as well.

Don't forget that there are differences between early and late cars.
