The first Japanese domestic 'specialty car' was the Toyota Celica, debuting in December 1970. The Celica shares its body with the Carina sports saloon that was announced simultaneously, but with a sporty 2 door body. This was done in the same style in which Ford developed the Mustang.
The Celica's major point of note is its style. It has an elegant coupe body with a long nose and short deck. With four charming round headlights in the front and its rounded form, it gained the nickname "Daruma Celica" (named for a rounded toy statue that never falls over) from car lovers.
The engine was available in three types. In addition to the 1.4-litre or 1.6-litre OHV inline-4, a newly developed 1.6-litre DOHC inline-4 was offered, producing 113 BHP combined with Solex twin carburettors. This engine was equipped on the 1600GT model.
5-speed MT, 4-speed MT, and 3-speed AT transmissions were available. In addition, there were 3 types of exteriors and 8 interior options, offered in a "full-choice system" where they could be mixed and matched as desired. However, this did not apply to the 1600GT due to its special characteristics. With strut suspension in the front and a 4 link suspension with a lateral rod in the rear, it boasted great performance on both freeways and on winding roads.
This first Celica received many small changes in specs. In August 1972, it received a facelift, and the 1600GTV model was added. On this model the suspension was hardened, and the optional equipment was simplified. In addition, a 3-door "Liftback" with a tailgate was announced in April 1973. SOHC and DOHC 2.0-litre engines were also made available at the same time, raising the popularity of the car even further.
