1982 Toyota Celica

In 1982, Toyota introduced the third generation of the Celica. The body was totally redesigned, with a boxier, more angular shape and flip-back headlights. A new trim level, the ST hatchback, was also introduced to the lineup.

In addition to the popular hatchback, the 1982 Toyota Celica was available as a coupe. Both body styles came in the sportier GT and the coupe came as a base-level ST. The engine was a 2.4-liter, 96 horsepower.

The new body style was very popular with drivers, and is still sought-after by Celica fans today. While drivers say the car can accelerate quickly from a stop, it takes a long time to get up to maximum speed. Many enthusiasts enjoy customizing and racing their 1982 Celicas.
