I have a manual 1977 Toyota Celica for sale. It has a 1999 Toyota Tacoma 2rz-fe engine with a Cummins turbo bolted to it.
This car is VERY close to running, maybe a few things tinkered with. There is nothing mechanically wrong with the engine, I drove it from Georgia to South Florida last November no issues.
When I bought the car last July it was still running the 2rz factory ecu and harness and was running pretty terribly so I decided to take the old harness out and buy a standalone ECU and new harness. I went with a Microtech EFI ECU.
I wired the car up and tried starting it but the ECU is being sent out for reprogramming, but does come with the car. The wiring harness has been soldered and heatshrink wrapped at all connections.
Since I have had the car I have fixed some things such as a hole in the oil pan, I welded a new crossmember, new steel braided oil return like and aluminum fittings, cleaned up the engine bay wiring, put new tires, and did an alignment.
The engine mounts should be replaced, there is light body damage in the rear drivers quarter panel from where the previous owners wife backed into it, the ECU needs to be installed when it comes back from the dealer and the car needs a tune. There is also no heat or a/c in the car.
It's a very fun car to drive and super light weight so even with minimal horsepower it's awesome.
I know what this car is worth and I know what has been put into it. I am looking for $6,500 OBO or a possible trade of equal value at least. No low ball offers because I won't respond to that. If you have any other questions or are interested in seeing the car give me a call or text
