I was looking in the engine bay the other day, and noticed my VIN. I have number 9,907 (82). Just wondering, are there any younger ones here? Or older, depends on how you look at it.

ah it would have to be an 82 to qualify for that honor. Hey Aaron, you reading this? Check yours, I think it was a pretty early one. I have an 86 though, we should compare who has the newest and oldest.

LOL!!!!!

So we are asking about who has the newest, correct????

Other than yours, I know that Archie Bowles 86 P-Type has a 11/85 production date. And nobody (either here or on the Yahoo list) has come across a 12/85 production date MKII yet. Others????

OK, I guess I was a bit confusing. I meant the first one made (out of 82's). But It would also be cool to see who has the last one made. I guess so far Archie takes that honor.

From the yahoo email list, Acebacker said -

Mine was built in July 1981 (no
402), however I think that in Australia, and perhaps in the US they went on sale in 1982.

I do believe mine was in november of 81.... The benifit of this is that my emblems on the hood and the B pillar just say SUPRA not CELICA SUPRA... not that that's a bad thing, it just gives it a little difference when compared. :)

later

dogstar,

Open your drivers door & you'll find the build plate on it. "Assuming" that the door has not been swapped out. Stamped onto the plate, will be a month abbrev & the year (example: Sept 80, Nov 84, etc).

lil'devil,

Some of the early August 81 - January 82 MKII's have the Supra nosebadge/B-pillar badging on them, others will have the Celica Supra badging. They seemed to be pretty random. And treat those Supra badges like Gold, they are not that easy to find!!!! :shock:

My 86 is #174808, 10/85. Guess its not the newest.
As per Mr. Eng my 86 has a production date of 11/85 and is #175681

More production information can be found on the RA/MA microfiche, list production dates and build numbers.

If anyone needs a set of microfiche I have extra sets email me
