Default 1985 Toyota Mark II - $13500

Category: Import
Status: Clean Title

I have a 1985 Toyota Mark II for sale, in USA - Florida.

Mileage: 125000 km
Engine Size: 2.0L


Asking price is $13500



Location: Orlando FL
Price: $13,500 OBO
Trades: Yes, Looking for any year Miata, prefer turbo, but just let me know what you have. I am also looking for a Turbo II Rx7, FD, WRX, STi, etc. If it is interesting just send me a PM.

This car is amazing and definitely gets looks for good reasons. It has a clean title with the Japanese VIN, not a sketchy VIN swapped car. Insurance is very cheap even with full coverage. I have had some other people concerned about getting parts for the car, but really it isn't an issue at all. I would say 85% of the parts can be easily sourced here from different variants of the Cressida, Supra, etc. The timing belt, water pump, and seals were just replaced which I did have to get from Australia, but it wasn't too expensive or hard to source.

1985 Toyota Mark II
Recently repainted
Head just re-shimmed
New timing belt
New plugs
New front main
Otherwise stock engine
Transmission shifts smooth
Rare factory rear window spoiler
Wheel bearings recently replaced
New front brake pads
Cusco bolt in cage
Greddy Boost gauge
Turbo timer
Aftermarket alarm
Nardi Deep Corn 350mm steering wheel
New inner/outer tie rods (8/16/13)
Aligned 8/17/13

Cons:
-A/C is not working at the moment. I just replaced all seals, and it has been holding a vacuum for over a week with no rise. I am trying to locate some R-12 to recharge it, or a drop in replacement refrigerant.
-Interior is in great shape for the age, but it does show its age in some areas.
-Check engine light is on. The ONLY reason it is on is because this car had a water to air intercooler from the factory. It shows a code 54 when put into diagnostic mode, and I am working on a fix for this. It does not affect the way the car runs/drives.

NOTE: Wheels in the pics are not on the car. It will come with 15x8 +/-0 Panasports.

If you are interested, or have an offer, please PM me. I will respond asap.

Not really. I just miss having a small car. I may take it to the local drift event, but I highly doubt it. I am more into road courses nowadays.

Haha, was that some sort of test?

It is. It also far exceeds Concealer's "old-*** boxy-*** Toyota" budget.


1G-GTE motor?

I mean.... i have my MSM i could offer in trade, but i'm rather unsure if i'd feel comfortable doing a straight trade, and i know SWMBO would kill me.

But i do have another miata i could build to appease her.


Is this a 5spd? (Can't see all the pics at work)

M.Adamovits- Yes, this is the luxury version offered to few market. Nothing says luxury like red velvet theater seats!

concealer404- Yes, it is 5spd, and in fact the transmission was just rebuilt with all new toyota parts. It is a 1g-gte enigne, and all maintenance is up to date as of now. Also, the LSD was just rebuilt not even 500mi ago, so it locks up very well.
