Celica Sunchaser!!!!!

So, I found an old Sunchaser (#641 of 2,000). She has the 22R and in amazing condition to have sat on a junkyard for 11 years. 62k original miles if I remember correctly. I saw one on eBay just sell for $4900 USD and there was so much rust the body was about to fall of its frame. Not only that, the interior was SHOT. On the other hand, this jewl I have found is in pretty good shape overall. It still starts after sitting untouched for the last 5 years. Dropped in a battery and she turned right over!

So, I guess what I am after is some feedback. I am considering this as an investment/restoration. I have a zillion projects right now, so I am trying to decide if it is worth it right now. Feedback preferred.

Thanks!

I have a 1981 Sunchaser with 115,000 miles. It lived in Myrtle Beach, then Washington, DC for years and the salty air and on the roads have caused some rust in wheel wells and trunk. It was restored in 1999 and the belts, hoses, etc were replaced in 2005. It was parked in the garage that year and there she still sits. If you're interested in restoration, I'd be glad to sell you my baby for $3000. I'm located in San Antonio. From my experience, the Celica will start after sitting for years...she sat once for three years and turned right over with a jump. If you or anyone you know is interested, please post on this space for me. I always believe that Sunchasers are a good investment, so if you're doing the work yourself -- you're likely to make a profit -- that is, if you don't fall in love with it and keep it! I am a disabled, retired vet and can't get in and out of the car is why it's for sale... EH
