It is with a heavy heart that I offer this car for sale. And even then really I'm only gauging interest...

1996 Toyota Paseo ST.

Simple spec list is...

110k miles
No MOT
Starlet GT Turbo rear disc conversion with s sticky caliper (can supply full standard rear axle if needed/wanted)
Full Toyota Optional lip kit
Optional rear boot spoiler with 3rd brake light
Aftermarket extra front splitter with tie rods
EBay canards
Standard cloth interior (As I'll put the leather in one of my other Paseos)
Full stainless exhaust system (reasonably loud but not too offensive)
CD player (can't remember the make)
Custom eyebrows
16" Toyota alloys as per first photo


Basically this was my first car and I loved it. The miles I ended up putting on this one I decided to buy another Paseo to use every day, and placed this in storage. Life took over and it remained in storage until the chap (unbeknown to me at the time was dodgy) I was renting from sold everything that was in the storage. My car, and various others, were sold on and I only knew when someone bought it, Mot'd it and applied for the V5. Several aggravating months later I got the car back in my possession, so I drove it around for a while and added the silly modifications. Sadly it would appear that certain things on the MOT fail sheet were still there after it got a pass, and I didn't feel safe driving it, fell out of love with it and put in more secure and trustworthy storage. Since September 2017 it has sat there doing nothing but gathering dust and life is still taking over. I've got several other cars now and I just don't feel I'll ever have the love for this car again to do anything with it. It's not solidly for sale due to the sentimental value but should someone be interested to take it on and give it the love it needs, I'd be happy to let her go to someone waving a decent offer under my nose.

Due to go MOT it'll be a trailer job, however it starts and drives so won't be an issue getting it onto a trailer.

Located just outside of Taunton, Somerset.

Any questions, just ask.

Just a little bump up to say this one does need to go in afraid. I'm open to sensible offers if she is going to a good home. I don't particularly want to have to break her down for spares but if needs must needs must.

I will be looking for on in the future, so you are selling about two years to early for me! Ultimately, I would love to get hold of another Galliano.

Well it's not totally set in stone but I have too many cars and something has to give. Since this one went walkabouts for several months and come back in poor state, I've kind of fallen out of love with it. It's sat in storage since a week after the meet last year and I've not touched it since. Maybe if I got it back out to play I'll feel something for it again - but then if I do that none of them will go anywhere and that's no good either.
