    1985 Celica Supra for Sale in the UK - Swapped 4L 1UZ-FE

    I came across this listing for sale in Hainault, United Kingdom for 13,995 or about $17,806

    Very aggressive stance.

    I assume that this is especially unusual in Europe.

    I saw that car in passing somewhere, like vintage Toyota Pinterest feed or something a couple weeks back. I wanna say it's turbo as well.

    I've seen this car come up for sale quite a few times in the last couple of years. Seems nobody wants to actually own it...

    As Wagzilla says, I imagine that it would be difficult to get it through MoT inspections. Is that true, or is that a misconception we have of English rules and regulations?

    One can always be fooled by a fresh paint job, but the body looks like it's in good shape. The hood (bonnet?) insulator looks original and that is one of the first things that falls apart. It appears to have the typical chalky deposits, but otherwise looks perfect.

    With the relative rarity of the Mark II in England, I would have thought with a 4L V8 putting out 191 kW (256 hp; 260 PS) normally aspirated it would be considered a pretty exotic car, especially given the asking price.

    Or is it just a case of people not knowing what it is?

    I did the Brembo Big brake kit for this car.

    The guy who owned it was a lovely Sikh chap and it had a full body resto and paint. Was a really sorted car - link standalone ECU and all the niggles worked out on it. When he picked up the brake kit from the workshop, he threw me the keys and said "go have fun"

    Went and drove it around all the best bits of road by me, and loved every second of it- Mine was off the road at that point and jumping in the 1UZ was awesome. Didn't like the wide 17" wheels though. Just felt cumbersome and heavy - and that's with one of the lightest V8's ever made over a anchor iron L6! They feel best on 15" i think. The coilover set up was really nice on it, and the diff was tight, so will be a good fun summer car. Stoked i got to drive it really

    There are only about 40 MA61's still registered in the UK nowA split of manual and auto. There must be about a hundred sorn i'd imagine (Sorn is ' Statutory off road Notification
