The good, 75,000 miles , NO RUST WHAT SO EVER! Wheel wells are spotless the trunk is spotless, body is straight, 5 sp, turbo, tems.

The bad:
Bad starter
bad speedo cable
bad motor (previous owner said it has to be rod knock)
one dent on p/s quater


Supra's are a drug!

Hell no :) My 89T's motor is going in this one then i will be parting out my 89T due to a chassis i do not want to keep. Not too fond of the rust.


Thanks zoonwen

i waited almost 1 month & some days to get it because of conflicting schedules with me and seller but after a 2 1/2 hour drive round trip & AAA towing it to a private location it will be worked on ASAP :) give it a month hopefully or two. ANYONE INTERESTED IN HELPING ME TRANSFER MOTORS!?!?!?!?

if the speedo cable is broken then the miles are gunna be off because they dont roll over when the speedo cable is broken

yea i know, the guy gave me his word. He said the speedo cable broke a few days before the motor took a crap. It has 75K on the body but he estimated it at like 77K but hey its still a low milage body and the motor is bad so a fresh rebuild will help with 0 miles on the motor & 77 on the body:)

I will be, entire front end of the 89 will be going on the 88 along with the 3pc wing & tail lights. Steering wheel, climate control, Cluster, and a few other things. Then i will be parting out the 89T.


what is the deal with the 89 body?

When i first baught it in Feb i forgot to check it all the way through. I was so excited and i ended up having big holes of rust in the wheel wells & spare tire area. Mouldings were bad and when it rains my back seat turns into a swimming pool. I took the seats out and unplugged the body plugs to avoid this but i just can't deal with that anymore ;) Plus i'm not rich or have tons of money to be with out a car whiel its in the shop getting rust damage repair. :) WHen i can start with a rust free body.
