I have a 1979 toyota celica complete with 100,000 original miles and runs great my friends dad pass away and it had been in his garage original owner
Is this car worth restoring complete nothing missing runs great after installing a new coil and
You will never get your money back on a restore which has 100,000 miles on it. however if you wish to keep it as a vintage car and let it appreciate you can restore the entire car and then cough cough lose the odometer. Technically this is both illegal and not illegal bit of a grey area as you have replaced and restored everything as good as new but don't expect it to be cheap you will be looking at over $30K for a full restore and that is being conservative (assuming you need entirely new engine and suspension).
thank for the advice
ends up after getting the title it a 1977 does that make any difference?
not really. Are you thinking of doing it to keep for decades as a show car or just to sell or drive? If as a show car it may be worthwhile as I'm sure it will win prizes with a nice paintjob etc but if just to drive or sell probably more trouble than its worth. I had a 1994 celica and replaced every component in the engine bay. The engine failed in 2 years. Also the original engine failed within 2 years of getting the car. Seemed cursed lol
