    85 Supra, For Sale

    I'm dropping the price to $4000.

    I realize that is still probably too high from what i've been reading. I may put it on Bringatrailer if they will take it.

    Does anyone know if there are many like mine out there? Whenever i do a search i can't find very many. that's why i priced it so high.

    thanks for your feedback,

    Tom



    Hello All,

    I'm the original owner of this 85 Supra and it's time to say goodbye. This is a mostly stock car. Some "recent" repairs are listed below. Pictures were taken almost 3 years ago but the car has been in the garage all that time. Current mileage is 278.7 kmiles.

    I had some body work done in 2003 to fix rust holes in the typical places. I can send more detailed pics to anyone who is interested. Most of the trim work is shot. Plastic parts in front of the headlights basically crumbled away...

    the car still starts up right away. i keep it on trickle charger. It's insured and on the road but never driven. it passed the emissions test a few years back.

    right now i'm asking $4500. I will start dropping the price as time goes on. I'm curious to hear what is a reasonable price or what these generally bring. Or what websites are good for selling these... I think someone said "bring a trailer" was a good one.

    thanks

    Tom

    Wow, an original owner car to come up for sale 34 years later, that's pretty impressive! Says a lot about these cars that there are still original owners with them here.

    Looking at a mk5 by chance?

    Good luck with the sale!

    The remaining rust looks scary. I'm kind of thinking that if you took it back and spent a little more to have all the remaining rust repaired too, even just primer patched, not painted, then you'd get your price and probably come out better than taking the best offer as-is. I mean any $4,000 -$5,000 Supra you expect needs a paint job anyway, just not rust repair. Right now, it will appeal only to a handful of people who aren't scared of rust, people who do their own body work. That's a small group. But if the rust were gone, then it'd appeal to a lot more buyers, including the whole southern half of the United States. We can't find a project Supra down here that the interior isn't completely toasted, and we know how hard it is to find useable interiors, but we're not going to travel to Maryland to buy a rusty Supra when we've got bone dry ones down here. If yours had a blown engine and you wanted say $1,500 or less for it as a parts car, there'd have been a trailer headed from Texas to fetch it a long time ago.
