1994 Toyota MR2

After 6 years of ownership the time has come to regretfully sell my REV3 turbo.

The car is a 1994 REV3 tin top turbo, imported in December 2005. Earliest MOT i can find is July 2008 which has 71239 (obviously a mix of miles and kmh). Current miles are around 112k.
I've always ran the car on V-Power and it has been serviced every year in my ownership.
I bought the car as a project to tidy up with the intention of getting mint, however soon after buying it i lost my job and have since never had the time and money together to do what i'd planned to do. Now i still don't have the time and I'm starting to loose the drive to get back onto it.

Over the years of ownership I've carried out a lot of work, wear and tear items and a few upgrades.

Its had a gearbox referb, parts were all bought from Peter Gidden at s bits and included: Input shaft, 2 selector forks, 3rd gear syncro, and was rebuilt by a local gearbox specialist.
6 paddle clutch from GTS Chris
Refurbished alternator
4 toyo proxes T1R tyres, Pretty much new
New battery

Upgrades.
Blitz advanced power induction kit
Fujitsubo RM-01A exhaust
Brand new ebay stainless decat and support bracket (supplied unfitted, never got round to fitting this)
Blitz super sound BOV.Carbotech pads
Drilled front disks

Various receipts from over the years

Car is in good condition, mechanically well looked after. Starts first time hot or cold and I've always let it warm up before any spirited driving. No smoke at all, boosts and pulls strong and steady.
Interior is all pretty good, could do with a few bits of glue here and there to tidy it up. There' an apline USB I pod controller head unit fitted.

All electronics work as they should included the headlights. It has the low rise light modification fitted for the headlights

Bad bits.
I can sort mechanical problems, not so good with paint and body work [Embarassed]
Theres a few dents around the car, nothing major or deep.
Paintwork isnt great, the rear quarter and one of the front wings has been poorly repaired and as such will need re-painting. The rest should polish up quite nicely.
Underneath its all solid, mostly surface rust on things where there's been no underseal (sub frame etc)
Sills are also starting to get rust bubbles.
Seats are in general good condition but the drivers side has a rip in the bolster.
ECU light comes on when the car gets warm, I've checked this and its brought up the code for lambda sensor so it will need replacing.
Small leak from rocker cover breather (very easy fix)

With a little work it could be a very good example of a genuine rev3 turbo, I've just ran out of time and motivation with it.

Pictures can be found at;

I will be adding more interior and underside pics in the coming days.

Considering its condition and the growing rarity of the genuine REV3 Tin Top Turbos id be looking around the 3300 mark for it.

No timewasters, genuine inquiries only please, nor am I desperate to sell the car.

Thanks for looking.
Steve

Sorry mate, had a lot going on for that week. I pm'd you a few weeks back.
Car still for sale, and I shouldn't have a lot on to get in the way of things now.

Cheers
