Description for Toyota MR2 1988

A 1988 Toyota MR2 Supercharged (SC) with only two owners and low mileage (93,915 miles).

All original/OEM down to the stereo cassette player, MR2 SC rims, and T-top shade panels and storage bags.

General positive qualities of the Toyota MK1 (first generation) MR2 SC:

- reliable Toyota build quality, especially with the engine and other mechanical components

- unique mid-engine design, which provides well-balanced weight distribution that enhances the sporty drive experience (there aren't any mid-engine designed cars available below $15k and with Japanese (Toyota) reliability)

- factory SC engine, which increases the horsepower input, offering a more exhilarating driving experience

The following make this car unique/special compared to other MR2s listed for sale:

- low mileage (93,915 miles, which is 3,354 per year)

- all original/OEM (no after market stereo, rims/wheels, exhaust, body panels, repaint/respray; this is essentially how the car came out of the factory...literally.)

- no rust, frame, or body damage; dash remains true, i.e. dash is not cracked

- only two owners - original paint, which was recently compound buffed and waxed by hand; no respray/repaint

- manual transmission (5 speed)

- leather interior (it is all original, but as stated below, it does need some reconditioning.)

- overall excellent mechanical/driving condition

- original MR2 SC rims with tires that have 75%+ tread remaining

- original stereo (radio with cassette player)

- all original accessories in the front trunk area

- T-tops with original interior removable panel shades and storage bags

- original and extra keys; total of 5 keys

- original manuals in glove box

- clean title in hand (no liens)

- clean CarFax

Over $3000.00 in maintenance conducted over the past two years to keep the car in excellent mechanical/driving condition. The maintenance work was completed by a Toyota dealership in Portland, Oregon and by the MR2 specialist, Backyard MR2 in North Carolina. The maintenance work is highlighted by the following:

- timing belt replaced at just over 93,000 miles, so less than 1000 miles ago

- periodic 30,000 mile service at 93,000 miles, which included all filters and fluids changed (coolant, oil, brake, transmission/clutch), seals and gaskets replaced, new rear tie rods (both sides), full alignment, and new battery.

The car also comes with a car cover, which is placed in the front trunk area.

We also have approximately 30 pages of maintenance invoices in protective plastic sleeves in a binder. The binder is in a moving shipment, which we will have access to in mid to late 2017. The binder will be sent to the next owner. The receipts of the most recent maintenance work listed above are readily available and will be provided with a successful sale.

Overall this car is in exceptional original/OEM condition.

For full disclosure, items that need to be addressed, but do not impact the driving performance or safety of the vehicle:

- driver's door switch does not open passenger side window (fixable); the passenger door window switch does work.

- antenna does not extend and retract (fixable)

- the leather interior has some seam separation (fixable)

- the leather shift boot needs reconditioning (fixable)

- slight oil seepage around the distributor, possible weakening seal (fixable)

For a car that is 28 years old, it looks and drives much younger and has only the above minimal issues.

Finding a Toyota MR2 SC in this all original/OEM condition, low mileage, and options will be extremely difficult to find anywhere, and for a reasonable price.

I am confident that the next owner will be exceptionally pleased with the drive value of this vehicle.

I can assist with coordinating shipment as I've had this car shipped twice over the past year via Amerifreight.

Thanks for your interest. Feel free to ask any questions about this vehicle.
