1 Lady Owner from new.

*** SOLD ***

We are very pleased to present for sale a fine example of the increasingly rare and desirable Toyota Celica GT.  This one has come to us from the Lexus main dealer where it’s 1 and only private Female Doctor owner part exchanged the vehicle after almost 23 years, we are certain that whatever modern Lexus the good Dr now drives has absolutely no soul compared to this old school sports coupe.  This is a UK car and not an imported car. 

Overview

A very smartly presented example of the iconic sports coupe of the early to mid-nineties.  The Celica GT Four (ST205 series) saw some serious rally success in its time and became the default choice for all SEGA Rally drivers either in the arcade or on their game systems, making the car a poster dream car which has come up in many a ‘if I won the lottery’ conversation over the years.  Now, whilst this is not a GT Four, it is a GT which means you have the looks, the kudos and the affordability and this means that as more famous brethren go up in value, so do good GT’s, and a car with a providence such as this one here, 1 owner, and full history is a car you need to purchase whilst it is still affordable.   

Externally the car is very well presented, the car looks very smart on its 15” alloys, the rear spoiler is purposeful and so in period, it just looks good as you walk around the car, and not as old as the plate tells you it is.  The metallic silver coachwork is in good shape for the year, there’s some scratching on the bonnet which looks like a cat has made its way up the nose on a regular basis, but after a polish these weren’t really noticeable, there’s some marks of the age-related variety around the car and the wheels, typical of a 90’s Japanese car could be improved.  But I am being mega picky as always, and that’s because lots of my cars sell on the description alone. 

Internally the car looks splendid actually!  The grey/ blue cloth is clean, untorn and free of any burns, snags or damage.  The dash looks sporty and purposeful and the car having been a non-smoker, and non-dog owner’s car smells nice and fresh.  This car is very, very well specified, you have remote central locking, alloys, fogs, rev counter, Air-Con (not ice cold), electric front windows, driver airbag, Leather steering wheel, Radio Cassette and CD player, folding rear seats with 50/50 split heated rear screen, PAS, sunroof and that’s quite a lot for a car of this era! 

Driving superbly, we have been through the car thoroughly and the level of care this car has clearly had shines through, there are no moans, no groans and nothing untoward that we can detect in our rigorous tests.  The car has a full-service history with 15 stamps in total, the last at 138K and this is the only one that isn’t at the supplying main dealer in Milton Keynes.  The care this car has had really shines through in the way that it drives, it is tight, responsive and engaging.  It is a huge amount of fun to drive.  The car really has been looked after.  As we do with all retail cars, we’ve given the car a full 58-point PDI check over.  There is an MOT to November 2018, sure there’s some minor advisories, but you must expect that, and any advisories needing attention have been addressed, and in this case, that’s a new CV boot and a new front tyre.  The car leaves us with a 3-month nationwide warranty for your peace of mind. 

I’ve been selling used cars for over 22 years and I’ve sold more cars than I care to count, including numerous Toyota’s and I can say that this one drives superbly.  If I had more space to hide it away, I’d keep this old charmer.
