Stef and I picked up a 1996 Anniversary Edition ST with for cheap with a blown motor, 161,644 miles on the chassis.
The car was owned by a college kid that didn't know what oil was.
They put some $ into the car earlier in the year with new struts, a new exhaust, new fuel filler neck, and had the car painted after a few fender benders.
Overall the car has some dings but it's not bad.

We've had Stef's rebuilt 7a sitting in the garage since we put the 3s into her Celica so this was the perfect opportunity.

The day we got it (the guy towed it to our house)













Step 1 pull the motor that night



15 min later...



and the hole in the block (Stef says WOW !)





the new motor



and in the car



We replaced the clutch, a few interior pieces, put in an alarm, and swapped all the seats, and we got a few parts from Cameron (ted95) and Mike (mkernz22) - Thanks !

Stef repaired the door

before

after


and the finished product. We gave it a shine and some snow tires for the winter.





There were so many things dirty, neglected, and just hacked.
The interior is now perfect and cleaned up.
Runs and drives great. It's hellaslow but 38 mpg is a nice surprise.

Refirb the 14" wheels a little and put snows on them, get all season tires for Cameron's old 15" alloys that are on it now. That's it.

The thin sleeves I didn't use. The old ones were all rusted up and destroyed. Some people call them "crash tubes" also.
I was going to replace them the first time I did the front bushings but realized they're useless, haven't used them in any of the cars.

You won't have to drop the subframe with no engine in the bay. One bolt hits the BEAMS oil pan which requires the subframe to be lowered.
