    Default Toyota Trueno notch back

    I've been thinking about it for a while and I'm moving on in my life.
    I'm the second registered owner, it was a one owner car in Japan and I'm the only owner in Australia. I flew to Japan to inspect it with the help of my good mate Shane Bingham. It's actually an AE85. I bought it with 25,400 original kilometers on the clock. I then had a specialist do a full conversion to AE86 spec inside and out. The engine is standard except for the exhaust. It even has the factory airbox. The gearbox has a TRD short shifter, the diff is a disc brake unit with a TRD LSD and 4.6:1 gears. The body is in very good condition but has copped a few shopping trolley dings since being in Australia. The paint is 95% original, 32 year old paint bar a few touch ups. The suspension was replaced with all new adjustable TRD blue shocks, TRD springs (Front 6kg/Rear 4.3kg), Cusco camber tops, full TRD bush kit, XT130 lower control arms with new ball joints, 30mm longer tie rod ends, I think a few other things but I can't remember. The wheels are rare 6.5x14 Advan A3As on the front and very rare 7x14 Advan A3As on the rear. There are two sets with the car.
    The driver's seat has the factory funky air pump lumbar adjuster. The factory radio is still in place. The car has factory power steering, power windows, power mirrors, air conditioning and I've fitted aftermarket central locking. I also have lots of spares to go with the car including a brand new OEM front bumper still wrapped in plastic, a spare gearbox, spare body panels and glass and the wheels I mentioned earlier. There are a few other things I've probably forgotten.
    The car has been sitting for over 12 months in a garage but I started it the other day without any trouble. It really just collects dust these days so I'd like it to go to someone who'll appreciate it.
    If you have any questions feel free to ask.
    I'm accepting expressions of interest but if you're under 25 don't even bother. This is not the car for you. I'm not interested in trades either. This car is not a bargain so there's no need to make low ball offers. It's hard to put an exact figure on it and it will depend on whether the buyer wants it registered in Queensland or not (currently unregistered) but after referring it to a few people who know the car they've suggested a market value of around $17K-$18K.
    The car is located in Brisbane and I'm a FIFO worker so viewing is by appointment only.

    I see dumb people. Driving around like regular people. They don't see each other. They only see what they want to see. They don't know they're dumb.

    Easily one of the best street 86 I have ever seen. This would suit a mature collector and not a drift kid wanna be that will strip it down and slide into gutters.

    Good luck matt
