This 1977 Toyota Celica RA29 is for sale in London, England with a current bid of £11,000 ($13,890) and the reserve not met. We are happy to see the project still doing well since we first wrote about it in 2017. Under the hood sits a turbocharged 1UZ-FE V8 running on 8 psi of boost from a Turbonetics 76 mm turbocharger.
