1997 Toyota MR2 (£6,750)

Ad posted by a Registered Trader.

On offer here is probably the most original MR2 Turbo I have ever encountered! Without question, since import in 2007, it has clear been owned by an enthusiast and meticulously maintained with a huge folder of receipts and bills to prove it's UK history. It has had (2) UK owners prior to my purchase of the car, the last (before me) owner a very genuine gentleman in his 60's who always warmed up the car before enthusiastic driving and cooled down before stopping.
The car..
It's a 1997 Revision 5 Turbo and in near stock condition. The engine bay is COMPLETELY STOCK! As I am sure you can appreciate, this is seldom seen. The car still wears it's stock exhaust, everything appearing to be in fine fettle. The engine pulls strongly in all gears, I am sure you can appreciate is good to know! (grade 10/10)

It is probably easier for me to list the non-standard features ... This is simple ...
- Turbo timer (currently not connected)
- Tinted rear and rear side windows
- Freshly painted wheels & calipers - gloss black & red respectively
- Aftermarket stereo.
- TRD Drivers seat.
Now I am sure the last item will have some peoples ears twitching! they're extremely expensive to buy new, not to mention shipping from Japan. Unfortunately no pictures of it at this stage (currently on holiday in Cornwall) but is in generally good condition though the drivers side bolster is a bit squashed, though all fabric intact. This car is a tintop with cloth interior - in very good condition. All the rev5 features are there, the airbag dash, lovely rev5 JDM airbag wheel with red stitching, red ticked instruments. (grade 9/10).
The exterior is Astral Black (202) and also in very good condition given the car is nearly 20 years old. Please expect this to have a few marks and stonechips in the paint - this is not showroom condition please do not expect it to be immacculate. It has been cared for but used, not mollycoddled in a garage. It has covered approximately 5000 miles in each of the past 3 years. I'd say the exterior grade 8.5/10
The previous owner has spared no expense and loved this car. Given his advancing years and his wife's back complaint, he's switched out to a very nice Jag. The underside has been wax-oiled in the past 12 months and I can find no signs of rust. The car has not seen salty winter roads and always garaged.
I could continue to way lyrical about this car for a long time but I do not feel I would do it justice. If you're considering buying a turbo in original condition, this is a MUST VIEW!
No canvassers, no test pilots. Please bring proof of insurance if you are wanting to drive. I am happy to conduct a test drive.
These sell for around 10k and am happy to sit on it for now .. Price is £6750 OVVNO for this appreciating classic and reflective of the few down-points (bonnet chips) it has. I am selling to fund purchase of a minter mk1.
