Which model A60 or A160?

Hi, I am new to the Forum and as yet do not own a Celica but want to.
I want a project car to enjoy and display. Currently trying to decide between a 1982 RA60 and a 1987 SX162, both are manual and supposedly running. My dilemma is one is rwd and carburettor, the other fwd and EFI. I suspect the older one will appreciate a little more than the other.
Can anyone advise which is the better to drive and which is likely to give the least head aches.
Any advice very appreciated.

    The newer model with injection will give you less headaches.
    Carburettors are horrible to tune and maintain unless you leave your car totally stock.
    I've had many cars with carbies - Holly, SU, Weber etc. I will never go back from injection unless I get a REALLY old car from the 60's or something like that, and even then I would be tempted to convert it to injection.
    If you are looking for resale value, the RWD Celicas are likely to appreciate more than the FWD models.
