  • Included in the sales is a colour matching leather steering wheel & centre console lid (same as seats)
  • I will also include the standard exhaust and both CATS, spare engine and gear box oil etc.

Good bits:

  • No dents, rot or rusty arches
  • The undercarrage is in amazing condition (the words of the Toyota Engineer when it went in for an MOT).  Any under vehicle inspection is welcome.
  • Engine runs perfectly with zero issues or smoke
  • Auto Gear Box opperates like new, with no noises or issues
  • The car has been well maintained by perfectionists
  • The bodywork, interior, engine bay, engine are in very good condition, it really is a fantastic example
  • I was a regular at the North West meets.
  • In my possession the car has never been to a car wash, its been done by me using a 2 bucket wash method, including a foam cannon pre-wash to. (I know how particular the previous owner was aswell so I am pretty sure it was treated the same when he owned it.
  • Previous owner was also a member of the Supra Owners Club
  • BPU and various other work carried out by Chris Wilson (which the majority on here rate as one of the best Supra experts in the UK)


Bad bits: (I am being overly picky with these and really struggling to think of anything else)

  • A single vertical 5cm scratch on the rear bumper, it is on the part that curves under the car so can't be seen.
  • 3-4 stone chips that have been touched up over the years, few chips that could do with touching up
  • A few fine light scratches to the roof, only noticeable in certain lights and at certain angles.  
  • A hair line crack (few inches long) in the paint at the bottom of the drivers side skirt (been like this for several years never caused a problem or flaked but was on my list to do)
  • A slight flake of paint on the front bumper, where it rolls in to the arch. (looks like a pressure washer got too close), needs touching up.


I’ve had the car since July 2012 and the people that know me, know how much of a perfectionist I am.  The previous owner from 2005 to 2012 was exactly the same as me.  Money has been no object with this car, if something was needed the best original OEM parts sourced and fitted.  The original headlights went slightly yellow so OEM replacements were purchased from Toyota, I noticed one of the VSV Controllers had a repair on the nipple where the vacuum hose connects, although it operated fine it was replaced with a new one from Toyota, I noticed a couple of the vacuum hoses were not original Toyota ones so these were replaced with original Toyota items.   Receipts can be shown. 

As some of you know I have been thinking of selling for 4 years but never wanted to let her go. I am in no rush to sell, but I am serious about selling if the price is met.
  
Serious enquiries are welcome, I am in West Manchester, 10-15 mins from the Trafford Centre.  No tire kickers, test pilots or dreamers.

Please PM me for a further discussion. 
 
Cheers,

Rick

I have just realised I didn't include a picture of the engine bay in the advert.  Picture now added to the original post.  Thanks.

Lovely, should sell fine. If it doesn't swap you for an NA and packet of crisps? 😉

Surely the key question is what flavour crisps? Lol.

On a serious note, great advert, great car and hope if it does sell the new owner will cherish it as much as you and the previous owner(s) clearly have. 
 

Best of luck (not that you need it as car is a great example for a good price).

Cheers,

 

Pete 🙂

This is a cracking car. And one of the best in the country, as we all know as members of the northwest. But me more than most. It’s a few years since I sold my second supra to Biff another northwester and I’m glad I did when I did. I would have bought this car myself If I wasn’t our oldest northwest member and now couldn’t get in or out of a supra because of a knackered hip. New one in a week. Good luck with the sale Rick. Well worth the money but it would have had to be cheese and onion crisps with the deal Annabella.

It would be great if you could share what it sold for if you'd be happy doing so? Will help those looking at agreed values and those potentially selling 👍
