This is my XP Hardtop that had a full bare shell restoration in the early 1990s in Brisbane. Following the restoration a 221 cid engine was fitted that includes a 2V head, 350 Holley and extractors with a twin system - mated to a 5 speed cast iron Celica gearbox. The interior was completely renewed and the front seats were changed to Stratos bucket seats. There is a modern radio head unit in the glove box and a 10 disc CD stacker in the boot. The boot has been well appinted with lockers and carpet - along with the battery and isolation switch. She's a good honest car that gets used regularly - so has some fair wear and tear on the body along with some usual hardtop foibles that these cars develop. It drives just as you'd expect with plenty of pulling power under the right foot and a nice note from the exhaust! And with disc brakes at the front with a VH40 booster stops pretty well too. It has 5 new tyres fitted in the last 6 months and is currently on Qld club rego.
