I've had my 76 liftback for almost 25 years. Just got the 302 working with a C5 Ford 5 speed. Crazy fast. About 350 hp from the weak 90 or so hp. Now for a rear end update and front suspension. Want to make it a show car. I got mine up to 137 mph with the original motor years ago and the front end was shaking so bad. Scary fast but so fun. I will be sad the day I sell her.

If you wanted a kick, you should do some research into the Datsun sedan and truck lines of the 70s as well. Not only were they posting similar (and in many cases better) power numbers, the community was able to "factory" hotrod most anything. The motors, transmissions, and suspension of the era was almost lego-like in interchangeability. Want more compression out of the 1.8 liter L series motor in your Datsun 510 or 610 or 710? Just grab the flat top pistons from an L28et. Want electronic ignition? Get a matchbox dizzy out of a later 70s Datsun 620. Need bigger brakes and little lower ride? Grab the front struts from a 280ZX. 5 speed swap? Pick a dogleg from a 200sx or a standard 5 speed from a later model S30 or S130 (or any of the 620 trucks of the later 70s). Pretty incredible how much Nissan was able to do with a single driveline platform from 1967-1982.

You were surprised that the engine seemed to lug at 50mph in 5th gear. Look at the stats. I had a ‘76 ST 5 speed. Gear ratio (and I’m only recalling what I think I remember from 1977 or 78) 4th gear was around .85:1 and 5th gear was around 1.17:1. You shouldn’t have shifted into 5th that soon. That car could easily hit over 115mph (stock, no fancy stuff). You forgot to mention the 1976 Pontiac Sunbird. I actually compared the two - as though there was any comparison. In my defence I had a relative working there. The Celica was easily my most fun car - far and away. I’m not a motorhead, I read the details on the transmission and those 2 bits of detail just sorta stuck. My Celica was Ice White with brown interior and I had the opportunity to park it beside a fastback Mustang it must have been designed after. The Mustang was pure white and beside real white you could see just the faintest blue tinge in the Celica’s colouring.

This is one video I can honestly say I do not agree with. My first car was a '79 Celica GT. It wasn't as responsive as this example, from all appearances. It was also not reliable.

The weird rev thing you talk about is from the synchronous 38mm Weber. The power is almost instantaneous in some applications, and you can even get a feedback loop going when starting out from a stop. Most people are happier with a non synchronous 32/36 Weber even though it is kind of pedestrian. The 38 is more of a race carb.

I had a 1976 GT hardtop as my first car in 1986. I finally got rid of it in 1993 with 255k miles.

Great car, had a red one, but stupidly sold it for Saab 99. Someone shoe-horned a Lexus SC430 engine into it, that went like a sled.

My cousin bought one new. I think it was red. It was cool and all but it wasn’t close to my Firebird in performance or handing. Of course my Firebird was a 70 1/4 Formula 400. Not quite as lame as a 305. Wasn’t the fastest production vehicle of 76 or 77 the Lil Red Truck from Dodge? It was definitely not a season on powerful cars. Even the Corvettes were embarrassing.

Had one identical, even brown, until it started rusting (lived in Colorado), sold it in 1983. Even though it handled like a boat it was run to drive.

Mom had a 1980 Corona wagon with the 20R and a 5 speed. It was 4.10 rear diff in a 7.5" ring gear like the 2wd pickups. That little car would bark third gear and you could peg it at 85 in third and have all of fourth and fifth to go. I wish I could find another. It was a fun, roomy, fast little car for a 4 banger.

I had a multitude of '78 and '79 Liftbacks. The first one was a blue automatic. The next three were 5-speed liftbacks. Then a '79 Celica Supra. Then years later I had an '84 Celica Supra. Durable, simple, and sporty. I miss those days.
