Debs will give you a valuation for your insurers, if you send her pics and what you have done to it. Mike as there is no 1971 Flatlight GTs in the UK that i ken of, it would depend on how bad someone wanted one. If i Wanted a good GT flatlight and i had the cash i would pay 15 grand for one,no probs.

Would be interesting to know how much the yellow GT flatlight in Ireland sold for last time it changed owners, and its condition. It appears to have the period TOSCO (TRD) spoilers front and rear as well.
With regard to value and condition, could anyone enlighten me as an example of condition be telling me what by the scale used 1 to 3 would the celica GT (red with vinyl roof) that is due to end on ebay fall in. This is for my own information, although i'm sure this may open a broad and possibly interesting debate debate based on indevidual opinion.
I would say the car falls between condition 1 & 2,better than condition 2 but not just quite condition 1. No doubt others may beg to differ, but certainly not in the class of the last 23GT that almost made £10 on the bay recently. It will still make strong money probably around £5K at end of auction. All will be revealed later tonight on the final price!

obviously the 23gt on ebay wasnt that good. spoke to someone who looked at it before the auction ended, car tired with horrible webesto roof , badly repaired accident damage, bodged dash etc. Didnt buy it. Winning bidder turned up and didnt take it away , not as described , the second bidder didnt want it either, not quite what it appears. These cars are only worth serious money if good and well restored, not to spend on again. So this shows the dangers of EbAy, the moral is going and check it before you stick big bids on it.The owner wanted £6k plus interesting when it still hasnt gone for half of that and the guy had only had it 2 months !!!!
I wonder if you can help me - I am desparately trying to find out the value of my 1978 Toyota Celica - I think it is the 'Gen II'? I was wondering if someone could tell me the approximate value of the vehicle (as I am unsure which model it is). People I have contacted so far seem unsure, a few dealers I have telephoned are not really interested, and do not have the knowledge to be confident which model the car is, plus there appear to be variations in some of the car magazines. Also I am not sure which model my car is compared with your list below.
The car is in good condition with no major faults at all, and has covered 66,000 miles from new, with the RA40 engine. In addition I have a folder containing a full service history by a Toyota main dealer, as well as the original bill of sale in 1978, not to mention the original and unused wheeljack/tools still in their wrapping! The car can be used daily and has 1 years MOT and 6 months tax, plus oil and filter change.
I am under pressure owing to space/economics to sell the car so would hope I will find an enthusiast who will look after the car in the near future should this occur. I would be very grateful for any information you can provide. I have attached some photos below for information.
Hi, nice car. Your whole car is called RA40, not the engine. The R denotes the engine type and the 40 denotes the body shape. Look at your VIN plate or log book; it's the first 4 characters. If it's a genuine GT the engine should be a 18RG, 2.0 DOHC. Your dash is grey rather than faux wood so that's correct for a GT too. I thought they came with alloy wheels but maybe they were optional?? anyone know for sure?? Value, I'm not sure, but generally worth less than the earlier RA28GT. (and I'm not just saying that because I have an older model!) I'm sure somneone will be along soon with a value, or maybe an offer! Al
A pre-facelift RA40 GT like yours would have had those wheels as standard, later facelift models(quad rectangular headlights) had alloys as standard on GT and XT versions. Your car looks original but as said the giveaway to a true GT is the DOHC engine. I'll post some relevant brochure scans for reference. Ian.
