When I got my license my first vehicle was a 66 chevy pick-up , the dashboard was all metal without padding.

I would hate to think how deteriorated the gas that is in the 1/2 tank of gas is.

Not to mention every hose, belt and most the gaskets will likely need replaced.

And theres more after that.

I had one of those in college. Loved it.
 
2014-07-28 11:04:31 AM  
Yeah, it would probably cost at least $5,000 to get it back on the road.
 
2014-07-28 11:05:09 AM  
For $65,000, they better have replaced the gas and all the gaskets. Not even the most diehard Toyota Gear Head with too much money is going to hand over $65k for a car that doesn't run or is about to break.

Then again, maybe Gaskets don't dry out and die like they used to.
 
2014-07-28 11:05:58 AM  
$65K!  Are they a little high?
 
2014-07-28 11:06:03 AM  
That is a sweet ride... my buddy had one exactly like this in HS, I gave it a kiss after I got out the first time he let me drive it.

He crashed it shortly after that on a nice round of sweepers we had.

I got a 1991 Camry in 2007 with 65k miles. It was a barn car, and when the guy from the dealership started it for the first time in 12 years he blew every seal. So I got a 16 year old car with a brand new head gasket.

/it'll need a new timing belt, too.
/the interior of the Supra looks a lot like the interior of the Camry.

Man those were nice cars. A friend in high school had one brand new.  For 1992 they were really fast, left my 1984 300z in the dust.

My mother told me it was green cars. Though I had trouble with my grey car. Got hit a year after I got it. Then my husband was sitting at a red light when he got hit. Totaled it. It never saw it's second birthday. I will never own a grey one again!

My mother, who just turned 90, owns a '92 Subaru with 6000 miles on it.  Always garaged, never driven in bad weather or snow.  Unfortunately it won't start now, probably that 22 year old battery gave up the ghost, and she doesn't seem to be in any hurry to fix it.  My sons have expressed an interest in it once she gives up driving, but I'm also afraid of what kind of condition those old hoses & belts are in.

Grey cars, or as I call them, "road-colored."

I got an 1999 BMW MZ3 Coupe, and getting some parts is liking trying to call the Pope now. It took 3 months to get a headlight assembly, and it had to come from Munich! I assume on some kind of sailing ship.

God only knows what parts availability for a 1990 Supra is like.

I'd like to know the name and address of anyone willing to pay that price for my "gullible suckers marketing list".

I owned a blue '87 that I actually bought from Ryan Moore (PGA). It was a beautiful car. I've never driven anything since that was more fun to drive.

Blown head gasket (of course), and then lost my job. I couldn't afford to fix it, ended up selling it to pay my rent.

I miss that car. :(
 
2014-07-28 12:40:01 PM  
The dealership is selling it for $69,998 Canadian, which is about $65,000 U.S. A little high given it's a Mark III Supra, but then again, this one is perfect. That may be a good price.

Yeah. And Jessica Biel may want to have sex with me...
About 5 years ago I bought a 1985 Mazda RX-7 with 45,000 miles on the clock. Had a bad rear main seal leak when I got it, but I just got around to changing it (I waited until it needed a clutch, and did both jobs at once). Put a new ring gear on the flywheel, and a new starter, battery, radiator, and a paint job. The interior is perfect, with the exception of the driver seat (which does show some signs of wear). As of right now, the car has under 66,000 original miles on it. Runs great. Drives great. Gets lots of looks, too.

I owned one for about 10 years, midnight blue 5-speed.  Wonderful car, amazing on mountain roads, would own again, and have seriously considered buying another one.  Yeah they are deathtraps, especially the targa models (which I desperately wanted anyway, since mine was a hardtop), but you can get them for around 5-6k these days, maybe sink 6-7k into it to clean it up a little and drive the dog piss out of it and it will take it all day long.

Including the tires and shocks, and all the suspension bushings. The wheel bearings are probably also shot unless the car was regularly moved around. Ditto the shocks and struts.

Unleaded gas starts forming varnish within about 6 months, even with fuel stabilzer it's only good for abvout a year, so the whole fuel system from the pump all the way to the injectors will have to either be cleaned (very hard to do when varnished) or replaced.

$70k for an old Toyota that isn't a 2000GT is ridiculous,  but it's stupid money for an old Toyota that will require many more expenses before it can be pressed into service.

If Toyota engines are like the Honda engines from that era you'll want to have that timing belt looked at before it breaks. If it breaks and you're driving over 15 mph it can crack the engine block.

You might be surprised. I had a 62 Olds in the late 90s- could buy a new fuel pump ( in stock ) at a Big Wheel Rossi- because they were still in use at the time.

That, and ebay....

My mother-in-law had a '91 Mazda Protege with only 31000kms on it and still on its original tires. After she passed away, I had to drive it a short distance from her house to her son's house so my nephews could start using it. This was in winter. Between the cold and their age, those original tires were deadly: age had cause them to harden to the point of offering very nearly zero traction. 

Unless your mother has changed the tires (unlikely given the car's mileage) please put new ones on before letting your sons drive it.
