Description for Toyota MR2 1986

I recently bought this from the original 82yr female owner. She was the original owner, car garage kept from day 1.
Original Window sticker - Book of receipts.
Of note ~2009 - Engine replaced (with correct Toyota 4AGE, about 20,000 miles ago)AC upgraded to R134a, new alternator~2012 - Rust repair (wheel arches, rear, with scanned photos).
Underneath car looks excellent (undercoating), as well as Frunk and Trunk). Original Radio in the box for the replacement, a few extra (car cover, headlights)Everything works as it should (headlights/switches, et al)
This car is great, because it is in gorgeous condition, but has actual miles on it which means you can drive it and not feel bad. There are stone chips in the front bumper if you get your nose to it, if car was totally perfect it would be 10k+ on bring a trailer. This car is for the enthusiast to either keep original or make their own.
Just love love love how clean it is, inside and out. Non-Smoker.
This is MR2 #3 for me (first two were about 10 years ago). I know what to look for. For anyone far away, here is what a more detailed look will find: I believe the strut tops should be replaced ($140 for the pair). I can feel them on bumps. Clutch fluid is darker than it should be, needs drain and fill. I did a quick bleed on the brakes fluid (was also dark, better now). Tires look great (good tread, no cracks), but are from ~2011. 14"s are inexpensive and still some good options from Tirerack. Front lip has marks/wrinkle, likely corrosion under the paint (normal issue, usually replaced with fiberglass), but cosmetically looks acceptable. One mud flap was attached using non-oem hardware. C50 transmission 5th gear does not pop-out, but it does move under load.
I can deliver for a fee, we can work that out. Happy to send or post additional pictures. Clean/Clear title in hand.
*Updates* - Getting good interest, let me answer some questions1) Replacement motor has about 18,000 miles on it. New link with more pictures (no where close to all the receipts, there's so many!), showing over 4K spent on the replacement motor, whole new AC, exhaust system, the body work, new battery and O2 in 2019.2) I replaced the OEM horns with Hella Supertones (both high and low). One of the OEM horns was out, but I did keep both so you have the part numbers or if you can refurbish them3) Link with pictures to more things: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1VwrB_ZdfvJ5lnVkDMv-vUF2fczv78QVC?usp=sharing hopefully that works (copy paste).4) I have a carfax, it does show an incident in 2006. The rust repair was also done in 2006, so that makes sense to knock that out at the same time. The conversation was that it was something very minor and used it as an excuse to do body work. All pinstriping and labels look great. Single stage paint (OEM) presents and corrects very well.
Oy, the pictures I took are not very good. I will try to do better.
I am an honest seller and MR2 enthusiast. I've gone to see enough cars where it was nothing like the pictures (these are all my pictures, not prior owner, and are recent), or they did not disclose something major. I will not do that to you, I want to avoid tire kickers as much as others want to avoid wasted trips or disappoint. This car is great. It is priced as a great example of MR2, but why buy something at $2500 that needs paint, rust repair, impossible to find trim or interior bits, or mechanicals, when you can start with something great and just maintain or go up from there?
Selling it due to some timing issues (personal), and I hope this goes to someone who can take care of it.
