Announced during Petersen Car Week, the Celica took top prize among a field of cars which are expected to lead the hobby for the next generation of enthusiasts.

This particular Celica is striking in design and remarkably original in its features, and has tasteful mechanical modifications that fit the era. The car features an 18R-G engine swap, upgraded front coilovers, and a Nardi classic Steering wheel, among other personalized touches. The Celica also retains its original tan hue, which complements a tastefully refreshed black interior.

“This 1977 Toyota Celica embodies what the Future Collector Car Show is all about,” said Head Judge Andy Reid. “These cars used to be daily drivers. They were used, abused but loved by a generation of enthusiasts. Because they were so accessible, their numbers have dwindled while the nostalgia has only grown stronger. Even 40 years on, they are still a blast to drive, and that will never change.”

Future Collector Car Show will return to High Street in Phoenix, Arizona, on January 17, 2021.
