When I try and find things to show our readers on the Weekend, I troll around on Facebook to the various sites that are created by fellow car enthusiasts, Pages like the Brown Car Appreciation Society is a favorite of mine to discover truly jaw dropping Craigslist Listings, like this one. This is a 1979 Toyota Celica Supra, and I doubt there is a nicer example for sale anywhere in the country… According to the very detailed listing:
This is a Mark 1 Supra, totally unmolested, in remarkable condition. If you are looking, you know how rare it is to find a Mark 1 in top condition. This is a beautiful example of this generation. A true japanese grand touring car, a must see! This is the first year for the U.S Supra, meaning it has the 4M-E SOHC inline 6, with fuel injection. This is not your 4 cylinder Celica, for sure. I purchased this car from an enthusiast who was downsizing his toy collection; unfortunately, it comes with no documentation, other than it is an Arizona car then to Texas; the car makes up the lack of documentation with it’s excellent condition. Paint needs to be seen , I believe it to be original. Dash is perfect under the custom dash pad, I chose to leave that on. I put new carpet in the car due to a couple of flaws. Seats have been re done but to a high quality standard. Rear compartment remains totally original, spare never on the ground. Mileage is likely 109K as the odometer now reads 9K. The car is a time capsule, regardless of the mileage. Nitpickers will find a couple of dings that the PDR did not address, and the drivers door latch closes hard. Other than that, no apologies. Features on the car: Tilt wheel working, cold R-12 A/C, just re charged to blow cold! Power windows Original AM/FM MPX stereo radio, sounds amazing Analog Clock works! Pull out tonneau cover with hatchback New Michelins Oil just changed, ready to roll! Car runs out extremely well, I put a new fuel pump on it, all else neat and tidy. Car is quick, not fast, but a great touring car that will be reliable, fun and an attention getter for sure! Needs to be driven more than I have time for. These cars offer great upside potential in value, a driveable classic. Why am I selling? The house rule is only one car at a time, and frankly, this car is so nice and sorted, I have bought another challenge, so this one has to go. No need to fire sale, but motivated just the same. Must be seen. Thanks!
So, what is it going to take to purchase this unique Japanese Coupe from the late 70’s to early 80’s? Try $8,950, which seems like a bargain for what you get. While this is not as highly collectible as an early Datsun Z-car, values are starting to climb, so why start with one of the cleanest examples out there.
