Andrew's 1977 Celica (RA28) + 18R-G
Engine: 18R-GU with twin Weber 45DCOEs, electronic ignition, pacemaker extractors
Transmission: W50 5-speed manual
Mods:
Plans:
  • Repaint (still original red)
  • Build a tough 18R-G with 10.5:1 pistons and 288 duration cams

Bought sight-unseen from a classifieds ad in Melbourne. We flew down from the Gold Coast to do the road trip back.

Shipped to Canada with me at the end of 2014.

Originally an LT model, I've been replacing bits and pieces to create a kind of GT replica.

About RetroJDM

This all got started when I purchased a couple of JDM brochures for my RA28 Celica. I'm now completely obsessed with old Japanese cars. Basically, if it's Japanese and had chrome bumpers, I love it!

You may have noticed there's no longer an online store. I've made all the sticker source files available for download. Feel free to print your own, make T-Shirts or whatever :)
