1988 Toyota Supra Additional Info:

1988 Toyota Supra Turbo restomod Classic up for sale. I bought this 3 years ago and put in a lot of elbow grease to get it into this shape. Tons of money and time invested into this garage queen which is occasionally driven on nice dry days. Work personally done to restore this car to current condition. Mechanical Condition: Completely redone engine bay with a ton of new stock equivalent parts. Stock Pistons, Rings, Crankshaft etc. Long block is stock New Metal Head Gasket; machined and full head-job from professional shop New ARP Head Bolts New Water Pump, Timing Belt, Drive Belts New Power Steering Pump New Power Steering Lines New Fan Clutch New Radiator New Knock Sensors New Turbo CT26 Stock Equivalent New Gaskets all over New Red Silicon Pipe Kit - vacuum and cooling lines including radiator upper/lower. New Spark Plugs, Wires New Hood and Hatch Struts New Battery, Alternator, Starter etc. New Wipers New Cold-air intake cone New Fuel Filter and cleaned out gas tank debris New Transmission Filter and Fluids New Brake Pads and Rotors all around. Painted red calipers. Brake Fluid flushed New adjustable coil-over suspension New staggered 18" Wheels and new Tires - 8.5' front with 245/45s and 9.5' rear with 275/40s New 3" turbo back downpipe and catless exhaust system New paint-job. Car was originally white - I changed it to black New Tinted Windows New Bulbs in front fog lights - cleaned up and works/looks awesome New Knight Rider Style LED Scanner invisible when turned off attached under front grill. Can be turned on from inside the car via remote. New Texas Classic Auto plates! Interior Condition: New LED lighting in the interior for custom dash and interior look New Sound System - Kenwood 220W door Speakers; Kenwood Double-din Dash with Bluetooth, Spotify, etc. handsfree connectivity; Pioneer 13" sub with built in 1300W amp for a terrific sound! Restored and revived Interior - Leather, Seats, Dash are all original. Touched up and polished nicely. Steering wheel, dash and front seats are in excellent condition for age with no tears. Center console was refinished with a carbon fiber inlay near shifter for cool look. Cruise Control, Power Windows, Power Door Locks, Power Mirrors, Power Antenna, Flip up lights - all work! Roof liner looks great - no tears or rips Targa Top removes and reattaches no issues (however tends to leak in heavy rain) Driving Impression: Original miles are super low for 31 years old car... 5,600 miles per year! Stood around in a field for 10+ years too. Get a ton of thumbs up literally every time I'm out with this car - some younger kids ask "what car is that?!" Guys my age know this from our younger days and always wanted one! Well now I built it and love it!!! Engine runs strong and pulls hard. Its not a 2JZ rocket but for a OEM style its pretty solid 7M-GTE, making about 250-280 with stock internals, regular turbo, intake and exhaust mods only. Waste gate has been tightened for 12 psi (instead of 8 psi factory) so it gets up and goes for a classic. Transmission is all stock and still strong 4 speed auto. Had it checked out by a transmission shop when I rebuilt the engine and they said it shifts great and works perfectly as designed. So nothing to worry there. Coilovers are a bit on the stiff side, but ride height is adjustable. Handling is tight and there is hardly any lean in turns. Huge improvement over stock. Brake calipers are stock but stop great. I refreshed everything I could easily and make old stuff look new again. Wheels and tires have hardly 2,000 miles since I did the restoration. Excellent dry and wet grip. In short - I love driving this car and even looking at it sitting in my garage. I have a full 450 HP upgraded 57 trim CT26 turbo, 550 cc injectors, Lexus V8 AFM and FMIC chrome hard-piping kit ready install but didn't yet, because I like it as-is. However I think I miss the fun of building the car and may want to do another restomod.
