Used Car of the Day: 1986 Toyota Mk2 Celica Supra
We're sticking around Chicagoland for the second day in a row. Today I bring you a 1986 Toyota Mk2 Celica Supra.
There's good and bad with this car. The good includes an engine that was installed in 2010 and still has low miles, Eibach sport springs, and a sunroof. The car apparently drives well, even after over 165K miles.
The bad includes missing seats and corrosion on both the body and wheels. A lot of corrosion.
So perhaps this could be a parts car for you. Or maybe you restore the body and have a fun Celica Supra on your hands. Or maybe you scroll on by without leaving a screaming, all-caps comment because you still don't understand that we're just here to showcase cool cars, even if they aren't in good condition. Your choice.

Tim Healey grew up around the auto-parts business and has always had a love for cars — his parents joke his first word was “‘Vette”. Despite this, he wanted to pursue a career in sports writing but he ended up falling semi-accidentally into the automotive-journalism industry, first at Consumer Guide Automotive and later at Web2Carz.com. He also worked as an industry analyst at Mintel Group and freelanced for About.com, CarFax, Vehix.com, High Gear Media, Torque News, FutureCar.com, Cars.com, among others, and of course Vertical Scope sites such as AutoGuide.com, Off-Road.com, and HybridCars.com. He’s an urbanite and as such, doesn’t need a daily driver, but if he had one, it would be compact, sporty, and have a manual transmission.
