Remembering Japanese cars from the past

Super rare: Toyota Celica Camry RA55

In 1980 Toyota launched a sedan Celica variant and called it the Celica Camry but in essence it was a face-lifted luxurious version of the Carina A40. In some countries it was simply called Toyota Camry and separated two years later into a FWD upmarket sedan and liftback.

But the first generation was still one of the most awesome mid-size sedans made by Toyota because of its engines and optional IRS. The first generation had a GT version of the Celica Camry featuring the 2 liter 18R-GEU DOHC engine (head by Yamaha) with an output of 135hp and nowadays this is the most sought after Celica/Carina of its generation. Imagine how rare this immaculate Celica Camry is:
