My brother is looking at buying a celica gt4, its a 1992 with 100k on the clock, i belive its the older shape 185 model if that makes any sense?
Thats the link to the advert, went down tonight and it looked very straight, paint work was a bit bad in some places but thats to be expected for a car of that age, all arches were rust free and no other signs of rust, started first time no bother and idled fine, it has a full service history(about half are at toyota) up untill about 92k in 2003, since then it has done less than 10k miles, the belt, tensioners and water pump were changed in 2003 along with the turbo gasket and a few other gaskets. Does the timing belt need changed again and if so is it a big job? Also the speedo didnt work very well, it was sitting at say 40mph when we were actually doing 70mph or so, at first i thought, damn this car is slow .
Any advice anyone could give me would be great, he has told the guy he 100% wants it and is bringing a mechanic friend down tomorow (guy who is selling the car is also a mechanic) to look at it for him but the guy seem shappy enough to keep it for him.
