RA60 Body swap help

Hello all!

Cheerz for havin' a look at my post :)

A couple of weeks ago i purchased an RA-60 Celica off of a friend of mine for $500 :yahoo:

The great thing about it, is that he actually sold it for me really cheaply because im going

through a really rough patch atm... but enough about that!

The car's specs are thus:

-Recon Engine

-Rear King springs

-Supra 5-speed Gear box

-Sports Exhaust and Steering wheel

-Heavy duty clutch

He also painted it matte-black (Which looks horrible) but im going to get it Painted Midnight Pearl Black-Blue!

But first i would like to find out if its even possible to get an MA-60 Body and replace the body from my car with it, then paint it...

if it is possible, how hard is it to obtain such a body and roughly how much would it cost???

Heres my Beast for your looking pleasure!!!

dude! keep the RA60 shell, if anything, put SA63 headlights on it... also the flat black looks f*cking epic... I love the RA60 shape celicas

ehhh... but the SA63's look too standard...ya know?

I saw an MA60/61 the other day and it looks really nice! plus they still have the pop up head lights.

as well as that but the spoiler which looks like a continuation of the roof makes it look really nice too!

Thats pretty much the end result im looking for.

I mean, just look at the front end of this compared to an RA60.... the MA's front end looks much better!!!

1: The MA61 front end is different to an RA60 one - it's a couple of inches longer for a start to accommodate the straight six. From what I know, it isn't swappable (just about everything back of the the firewall is though)

2: Even if it was possible, good luck getting either an MA61 owner to donate spare front panels, or finding spare panels in good enough condition.

In short, if you want the look of an MA61, just get an MA61 :P

Front spoiler or rear? The rear hatch is the same between the RA60 and MA61 (and because they all tend to rust, MA61 owners tend to use RA60 hatches as they are more common, and just swap over the spoiler/stickers etc)

Rear spoiler, the one that looks like a continuation of the roof.

Those ones, i think they look really sweet!
