    I'm looking to buy a Mk2 - but I only want it if it has an LSD. Now a lot of sellers are 2nd or 3rd owners and don't know if they have a P or L type. Aside from measuring tires, is there any other constant (letter in the VIN maybe) that tells which it is? I was going by fender flares but apparently a lot of people like to add them afterwards? (I'm in Canada so the LSD was an option on the ltype as well which makes it even harder)

    That way if I can confirm over the phone that it's a Ptype I'm not wasting my time driving over to check it out.

    I read the thread, printed out the original post and have all the important bits highlighted. But I just don't know how to visually check for LSD.

    Thanks!

    Look under the hood at the data plate on the bottom line should be a series of numbers and letters. Look for something like F followed by 3 numbers. This will tell you if you have an LSD or not and also what gear ration orginally. For instance F283 would be a 4.30 LSD. The "28" is the gear ratio and the
    "3" indicates LSD. A non LSD car would be F282, "2" for non LSD. Generally speaking pretty much all 5 spd cars came with a factory LSD as well as most of the automatic P-types.

    trip computer

    When I purchased my 86 MKII (purchased it new in 86) it had the trip computer listed as an option. I think it was $550.00 (+/-) then and approx $1200.00 to add after the sale. Needless to say I did not get it as I was young and LUCKY to be able to afford the car to begin with.
    Still got her!

    I hav been researching now for some houres about the swedish mkII,

    sweden started selling supra's 1984, and there where only L type avalible and it had LSD and some other things that the P type had, like the same 14*7 rims insted of the 14*5.5 that the usial L type had, sports seats, flares and headlight washers, and so on. but sad sad, sweden had som strange laws about exhaust fumes so we had a SOCH 5M-E insted of the DOCH 5M-GE. this make me bouth glad and sad.

    Is it RHD?
    If it's got a 5M-E and it's RHD then it must be an AUS car, though I thought they didn't get them until late '83.

    Have you got the VIN? That'll tell what market it was built for and the original spec.

    With the id gone you're probably never going to know for sure. It does sound like a Japanese spec car, except for the engine. Could it have been imported and then had the engine changed for some reason? Has the engine got it's serial number? Has the car got Supra badges or XX ones?

    I have an 85 p-type that has the digital dash and the trip monitor, probably the rarest of all combinations....so it definitely exists.

    Any info on roofs? My '82 had a sunroof that went back & under the top thanks to the long roof ( mkiii was too short-fuggedaboutit). Also there is a T-top one for sale on that website that we're not supposed to mention, Were there any factory T-tops? I can't recall any.

    I believe some white cars in 82 and 83 didn't have the black hatch thing, not sure why.

    Does the speed read in kilometers and you have to set it to mph? It's probably Canadian. USDM P-types did NOT have digital clusters.

    Mk2s only had hardtop and sunroofs, no t-tops from the factory.

    Sport seat/standard seat

    Years ago, I almost bought an 82 L-type in Sacramento, CA. An older guy was selling it, it had no modifications, and it had the sport seats. The upholstery matched the rest of the interior perfectly, so it's likely that the sport seats were available on L-types.
    Currently, my mother has an 84 P-type, that she bought from the first owner. It has the standard seats. I'm 100% sure that it was not modified, so there are at least a handful of P-types that didn't come with the sport seats.
