Earlier T-bar (targa top) example imported in 1991; off-the road since 2014/5; requiring some recommissioning; 3S-GE engine; sports exhaust and after-market seats fitted; lots of scope
Dating from 1990 this early Second Generation Toyota MR2 MkII, also known as the W20 version comes to us finished in Red and sits on a set of aftermarket 17” six-spoke Wolfrace alloy wheels and looks cool with its very 90’s pop-up headlights and Ferrari-esque styling, the shape having dated well.
Sat in the middle, under the engine cover we find the 2.0 litre four-cylinder naturally aspirated 3S-GE engine driving the rear wheels via five-speed manual transmission.
This example is what’s known as a T-Bar, meaning the glass sections in the roof can be removed, making it into a rather fetching Targa Top giving much of the benefit of open top motoring without as much wind-noise (so they say!). Inside, we find a pair of after-market diamond quilted leather-effect sports seats with red stitching, electric windows, front fog lights, digital clock, heated rear screen and Toyota 13702 radio/cassette/CD player.
The car shows 157,745 miles and comes to us following a long time in storage, since 2014 and has recently been treated to a new fuel pump, battery and fresh oil to get the car running. The car has also been fitted with an after-market Japspeed twin exit exhaust which is rather loud.
The bodywork looks straight enough and would no doubt benefit from a cosmetic overhaul and light recommissioning before being presented for MOT and regular road miles.
The history file includes the V5C revealing nine former keepers, the current since October 2013, a note from the vendor, three old Mots and a few historic bills for poly bushes (2013), a replacement clutch (2012) and stainless de-cat exhaust back box (2012). The last MOT expired in October 2014.
On offer at No Reserve, this is an intriguing opportunity to blag an early W20 example with lots of scope and potential, and given the way 90s JDM cars have risen in value its got to be worth a look.
