hmmm, sounds like we may have a new winner here. But I'm thinking that first 2 is either a 1 or not part of the serial number. I don't think they sold 100,000 mk2s in November 85. :D

I believe the last 6 #s are assigned sequentially to ALL cars coming thru the factory that year, at least that has always been my understanding. I kinda doubt they made even 180000 or so MkIIs for the entire world in 1985. The #'s do seem to be cronological to build month though. My '85 is a June car #165775.

that sounds more like it. yep, definatly the youngest listed so far. 180,000 mk2s sold sounds about right, thats probably just for north america too.

My '86 is a Nov '85, number 176180.
Not quite the newest, but close enough.
Amusing this car is from Cali, and its so close to the youngest.

I think I might have the oldest one so far...

Cam (canadian_psyko) now owns the car. I'll have to ask him to get the build date off the door, but i think #3902 has got to be in the first month or two.

I'm sept 81 #5789 all SUPRA badges. My B pillar trim was cracked and when I re-placed it I swaped out the badges to keep them all SUPRA.
