For more than a year, I've been collecting parts, and collecting Celica's in the effort to complete a V6 swap. Along the way I've changed my mind more than a handful of times on which car would get the treatment and I've finally decided on two.

Project: the White

1995 AT200 Automatic White Liftback 305,000 miles

Motor: 2005 Sienna 3mz
Transmission: 99 Celica GT 5-Speed Manual

So, thankfully I have a 99 GT donor car that will be giving me the transmission and several other goodies, I've picked up everything that I know I need, along with several things I'm sure I might need, and a handful of money to get whatever else comes up.





the White...

The day I paid for it,.. super clean body for 300k+ miles


Of course I showed up to buy it in a 6g,. which happens to be the next swap,.


Gotta love those hub caps,

the motor is out, and as soon as the flywheel arp bolts and clutch kit arrives, I'll start putting it back together,.. for now waiting on the last parts I could think of...

Yes it's so much more than about time and I'm planning on power washing the engine bay...

I'm planning on keeping this 95 about a month, to make sure all is well, and to enjoy it a bit; then selling it to the highest bidder. I'm planning on swapping my black 99 next but upgrading to the 153 transmission and keeping the 99, and my 94 in the end.
