Fans looking for a 1977 Star WarsToyota Celica

Article by Christian Andrei, on October 3, 2011

The hunt has started for the lost Star Wars 1977 Toyota Celica, the only one of its kind. The Public Service Desk of the Star Wars Promotional Giveaway Car Department is blasting the call to find this car, which was the grand prize at The Star Wars Space Fantasy Sweepstakes in 1977. But since this car was awarded to the mysterious winner, there has been no news about it.

According to the Official Star Wars Blog, Delphi Auto Design created the Star Wars Celica in Costa Mesa, California.

It was most likely awarded in January 1978. Toyota and Twentieth Century Fox jointly hosted the sweepstakes but the identities of the dealership and the winner weren’t disclosed. The VIN number isn’t known too.

Numerous Seventies vans have the Tom Jung poster artwork airbrushed onto their rear panels but this vehicle is unique. Pete Vilmur had released photos of the rendering and the actual car. Vilmur had provided details of the lost Celica before he made the call to find it on his Official Star Wars Blog.
