Hello 1stgen Celica forum, :wave:

Name is Charlie and I'm the proud new owner of a 1975 Celica 2000GT LB. Currently residing in Okinawa and was fortunate enough to pick this car up locally. Previous owner did majority of the hard work in rust repair. Car is pretty solid.

Not new to wrenching (very familiar with working on / modifying Mazda RX-7s); however old school is whole new world to me. With me having to learn so much about this particular car, I've been spending as much time as possible reading and learning the nuances of these beautiful rides.

No major immediate plans at the moment. I would like to freshen up the suspension / bushings and am learning what is LHD/RHD compatible. I also intend to freshen up the rubber on the car. Being in Japan, I do have access to a few things, but I have seen that some parts prices are much cheaper in the U.S. and I just have to ship them to me via USPS.

I will be doing lots of reading and trying to soak up as much as possible. Looking forward to being a part of this forum. :2thumbs:

Welcome to the forum, that's a beautiful car! Looks like how most people wish theirs looked. Is that an 18R or 18R-G under the hood?

Thanks. Interior is pretty complete too. Missing a few items, but not bare by any means.

As for the engine, it is an 18R.
