I think someone has one of those original pace cars. I remember seeing a post or pictures of if (although repainted).

I didnt think the Turbo came out till like 86? somewhere there? but what do i know?
The turbo wasn't a factory option until '86.

The MkI Pace Cars were modified with turbo's to give them enough HP to run on the track - not something you could order at the local dealer :)

There are better motors to chose that will bolt up to the mounts and tranny, such as the 5M-GE, 6M-GE 7M-GE and GTE. Check around for stuff thats been done to the old school ones. Oh and turbo motors started in 87, hehe.

I can't see the original photos of this thread, but I believe my family is in possession of one of the original TRD MkI Pace Cars. It's running on and off and is driven around when running. It was purchased by my Uncle from Portland International Raceway and was his daily driver for decades until his passing.

We would love to get into contact with people who are familiar and interested in the car - it is too cool to not share.

I know this is a very, very old post - but reach out if you want more information!

We are currently looking to replace the ignition system and could use some help.

Josh H is the man to talk to.
He’s helping me out with my MK1.
I’ll tell him to log on.
Josh = MK1

Wicked car man!

I found pics of this car from 10+ years ago at thetoyotaenthusiast.blogspot.com/2011/10/1981-celica-supra-trd-turbo.html

Nice!

The paint scheme sure looks like the original pace car.

Any photos under the hood?
