Please note before inquiring about the Celica or reading any further, that I am looking for $16,250. I am in no current rush to sell, therefore I am FIRM in my current price.
Also note: I will not part the car and I will not consider any form of payment plan. I am also not looking to ship the car anywhere and no trades.
I am selling my 2005 Toyota Celica GT-S. The car color is Toyota OEM, Spectra Blue Mica. The Celica has 55,980 miles on it at the moment. I am the sole owner of the car and I have the title in hand. I purchased the car in Austin, Texas in 2008 with 22k miles on it. Since then the car has been garage kept, never seen snow, never been smoked in, no kids, never raced or tracked, and has a CLEAN Car Fax. I can provide a copy of the Carfax for you upon viewing the car OR e-mail you a copy of it. The VIN number is: JTDDY32T550076517.
The Celica has many Dealer Option upgrades such as a Sun Roof, Cruise Control, Power Windows, Power Locks, and Fog Lights. The Celica also has nearly every TRD (Toyota Racing Development) upgrade available installed, over $8,000 in upgrades for both performance and appearance. All the TRD upgrades are 100% genuine Toyota parts. You can see a list of these upgrades below. On average the car gets about 30MPG and must use Premium Gas. I have always used Fully Synthetic Motor oil and I have had the oil changed every 5K miles. The Celica has the 6 Speed Manual Transmission. The clutch still engages as it should and I have had no issues with it at all. The Air Conditioner blows cold air and the heater works perfectly. The car runs beautifully and has since the day I bought it.
The Celica is in Excellent condition all around. There are some light scratches on both side doors from normal use, but other than that the car is in Excellent shape inside and out. In fact, most of the car is like new. The hood, hood scoop, bumpers, and the body kit trim pieces were just painted and installed by John Fogg Auto of Colorado Springs a couple months ago. John Fogg also removed every small dent from the vehicle using paint-less dent repair, therefore you'd be hard pressed to find a single dent anywhere. The front and rear seats were just purchased like-new in January of this year. The wheels were professionally powder coated about 9 months ago and have seen maybe 5K miles of use since then. The only reason I am selling the car is because I need something with more room. I also don't drive it enough to justify keeping it as I currently work on the road and have a company supplied vehicle for transportation. For the past two years this car has been a weekend vehicle only. I have babied the heck out of this car and I hope to find it a home where the new owner will do the same.
Even though the Celica has many upgrades, they are all 100% Genuine Toyota Parts. Many of the JDM parts I purchased from Toyota Japan (Hokori Motor and Japanparts.com to name a couple) or Yahoo! Auctions and had shipped state side and are extremely RARE. Chances are you WILL NOT find another Celica like this here in the U.S. This car would be perfect for a Celica or Toyota enthusiast. Most of these parts have been professionally installed. You would be hard pressed to find many these parts ever again.

The total costs from purchasing these parts far exceeds what I will get back in selling the car. In fact, I'd come out ahead of my asking price just parting the car. However, I'd prefer to keep the car fully intact as it sits now. Therefore I am asking more than the KBB value, which is just under 14K. If the car DOES NOT SELL in a few months then I will consider parting the car and then re-listing it again completely stock OR just keep it.
Feel free to ask me anything about the Celica, request more pics, or set up a time to come view it. I work during the week M-F, but I will do my absolute best to reply to your inquiry promptly. I prefer not to list my phone number here in the listing, nor exchange it until I know you are a serious buyer. I am looking for serious inquiries only.
Below are some pictures I took of the car a couple weeks ago in the Colorado Springs area, the Celica has not been driven since. I will continue to provide more pictures as time allows me to. Please feel free to ask for more pics if you have interest and desire to see some.
