Wheeler Dealer Approved: 1982 Toyota Supra

I watched an episode of Wheeler Dealers the other night where the subject flip car was a bronze colored Supra just like this one. Some pointy haired Brit named Ant had replaced the unflappable Edd China, but the unseen extras did a great job replacing the exhaust and head gasket while the Ant and Mike B raved about how nice the car looked at the end…and it did indeed look nice. How much time and money would it take to make this one as nice…I’m not sure, but it would be fun. Find this 1982 Toyota Supra bidding for $3050 reserve-not-met with 2 days to go, located in Roxbury, CT.

From the seller:
Original stock 1982 Toyota Supra , Terra Cotta Red with Black trim. It has 195,076 miles on it. Starts right up, runs/ drives strong and shifts smoothly. The only rust is shown in the photos (lower section of hatchback , in painted black section adjacent to glass), Engine compartment is in good shape as well as the body. The black molding around headlights is partially/mostly missing (see photo’s). There is a silver dollar size paint chip on the top of the Supra, as well as smaller chips elsewhere on the red exterior and Black section of hatchback. These are all small chips. I have not registered this Supra. It has been in clean/dry storage for 2 years. I have driven the Supra on some short drives (less than 40 miles). The air conditioner sounds like it is operating, however, the air is cool/not cold. Perhaps a recharge is needed. The plastic trim on the interior of hatchback/trunk space is cracked/broken/dryed out. Please look carefully at the pictures. I have pictures showing cosmetic issues, with exterior paint, 1 rust spot, interior area of Supra (ie broken glove box latch, roof paint chip,1 rust spot, faded trunk carpet and other interior trim areas which has faded over 38 years. This was a California Supra (purchased from Western Classics in Northern Ca). The Supra is sold in “as is condition, without a warranty.” You are welcome to(or have your agent) view the Supra in person by contacting me via the Ebay message board. I had purchased this Supra because in 1982 I had the exact color/style Supra which I used for business travel. I enjoyed the Supra then, it never failed on me. Since the purchase of this Supra 2 years ago , I decided to concentrate on restoring my classic British 1960/70’s sports cars .
