1974-1977 TOYOTA Celica GT specifications Classic and Performance Car

The facelifted RA25 and R28 Celicas introduced the popular liftback bodystyle (pictured here in American specification), and provided Toyota with the perfect weapon to go Capri chasing. Referred to by many as the ‘Mustang’ shape car, the GT version was a genuinely quick car with its 124bhp twin cam 1600. Sales were limited due to the high price and lack of badge kudos in the UK. Japanese market cars were also treated to a mighty two-litre Yamaha-headed power unit, dubbed the 18R-GU, that pushed out 134bhp.
