Default Toyota Celica old gen

This is a Toyota Celica Old Generation 70's to the best of my knowledge.. Correct if wrong. It was red earlier. Painted red by Toyato Tech guys and they also put racing stripes.







gives a very Mustangy vibe

Wow! It certainly does not look like a toyota!! Has a very strong flavour of the mustang fastback, the charger and the challenger R/t!! i love it!!!

P.S: The alloys look totally out of place on it though!

The side profile makes it look so much like the Mustang!A 5-spoke alloy would have looked better on this Celica.

It certainly looks more like a Mustang for me too. Looks more like an American one rather a Toyota.

an old beauty,it had to be in a good shape though.flamming red color with white stripes would have been better.

pictures make it look deceivingly similar to mustang but its size is much smaller. Not bigger than an esteem in reality.

I am really looking for the first generation celica, if someone could help me out and tell me where this particular celica is or if you have come across one.
Thank you.
