Up for sale is my 1997 15th Anniversary, Limited Edition, Hardtop Toyota Supra (118k miles). Title is clear. I’ve owned the car for a little over two years and have enjoyed every mile I’ve driven so far. It is my first Supra and everything you read from other owners online is true - they are amazing! The car was originally a NA 5 speed car that was professionally swapped to a non-VVTI GTE/V161 set-up by 2JZ Motorsports in Utah. That’s what these guys do - they know their stuff. If you didn’t know the car wasn’t an original GTE, you wouldn’t know the difference. Drives just like stock. Great BPU car ready to be a reliable daily or weekend car, or a perfect platform to start going for bigger power.

Here is a list of updates the car received when I purchased it from 2JZ motorsports in July of 2018:

Video edit before the new parts:

I’ve loved this car, and if my circumstances change I will absolutely be keeping it. That said, I hope to find a buyer that will smile each time they open their garage when they get home from work like I have.

The Bad -
  • Because the car has a JDM ECU, the OBD1 port is not readable for emissions testing. If you live in an area that doesn’t require emissions, it won’t be a problem.
  • There is a small, dime size rock chip in the windshield
  • CEL triggers and throws two codes: 1) sub throttle position sensor (has been removed). The code is a soft code, so it doesn’t effect the performance, but when the ECU looks for a sub TPS, it can’t find one and 2) transmission speed sensor, same soft code as above and likely due to a sub par soldering job when installing the new TRD gauge cluster. Neither effect the car at all.
  • The car is in great shape for a 23 year old car, but it does have the few exterior/interior marks. The ones that stand out to me most are pictured, but I’m sure there are more minor ones around the car.
There is a lien on the car currently. If you’re looking for financing options, I’ve had great success with Woodside Credit in the past. The car has a $50k+ appraisal report as well that can be provided.

Car is located in St. Louis, MO. Happy to show the car, take additional video or photos and anything else a seller from out of state would need. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask.
