1986 Celica GT

Ok there is a kid in my auto class and he was rebuilding a 1986 Celica GT 4Cyl 2dr.coupe with a 5 sp man transmission. He claims that there are only 16 remaining in the world. He says that there was a major recall with the engine. Our auto class called him on it and said that he was full of crap and went on the internet to try and prove him wrong but came up with very little. just wanted to see what you all think about it and see if anyone has any info on the subjuct

I'm guessing that answers you question, they are not rare, theres MANY out there. He's full of shit, i know a few people like that but they really dont know anything.

Then they are definately 100% not rare, UNLESS you got a really rich neighbourhood (guessing the cars aren't perfect shape either). But if there was only 16 left in existance, and you got like 4 in your neighbourhood then thats 25% of them right there. SOme people should just not be allowed to talk

Celica GTs and GTSs are the standard celicas and theres still tons around.
But are you sure he didn't mean celica GT4? the awd turbo version that they rallied? Im sure thered be more than 16 left but ive never seen one outside of old rally pics so id guess theyre pretty rare.
