I just bought a 85 5MGE, but from what i have read on the forum, the VIN number does not correspond .
The number is: JT1LBMA6100166548
I have seen here only numbers starting with JT2xxxxx....
Do you think i should worry?
Is something wrong somewhere inbetween car model-engine-year?

The major markets for the Supra (Japan, Australia, Europe and North America) all had minor spec differences. For instance, N. America got 2 levels of trim/performance and got more restrictive emmisions control, Australia got a single cam head, and Japan got some different engine options.

Where are you?

Romania, but the car was bought from Germany by the former owner 6 years ago, who drove it for 1 year, and parked it for the last five because it did not start anymore. I found the injectors in the trunk, cleaned them, installed them, and the car started immediately, like a new one. Everything in the car is "as new", but i found out he replaced the stock automatic transmision with a manual one.

PS: It has only 75.000 km onboard
