White & Tan: 1999 Lexus LS400

This next car comes as a tip from Jeff who writes: If it drives as good as it looks, this will dish out many more miles. Only driven about 9,000 a year to date… Yes indeed, this is the case of a seller who has taken some nice photos of a car that is clean. You could probably find better dollars/mile LS sedans all over craigslist…but those ones aren’t as sparkly clean. Find this 1999 Lexus LS400 offered for $5999 in Southwest Houston, TX via craigslist.

Few months ago, I was driving by and happened to see this car with a for sale sign on. I immediately bought since it was one of my favorite luxury cars growing up and I always wanted to have one.

I do go through a lot of cars and plan was the same for this, fix it up, enjoy it, then sell it.

I like to have all my cars in as pristine condition as possible and that’s what I tried to achieve with this as well but unfortunately have ran out of time and energy, since I have 4 other on going projects right now. There are only a hand full of things left to do on this to make it look like more brand new than it already does.

Before I describe the whole car, keep in mind its still 20 years old and has 186,000 miles on it.

Price is negotiable.


The entire body is straight and shiny. No dents or major scratches. Few spots where paint was chipped have been touched up. The chrome strip in the bumpers is peeling off. The windshield has a rock chip. Some of the gray two tone panels are fading.


Possibly the cleanest one you will ever find! Very minor scuff marks here and there. All electronics work perfectly fine. Woodgrain steering wheel and accents. Full powered front seats.


Wheels looks new and the car has brand new tires with full road hazard warranty.


Everything works great. Transmission shifts very smoothly. Recent oil change. No leaks!


New Rotors/Pads up front. The rear rotors could use replacement eventually. The suspension has minor squeaks from aging. but over all performs great. Shocks still seem good since the car is not bouncy on bumps.

I do have clean title in hand and I am the second registered owner of this vehicle.

All the original books/vin stickers are included with the car.
