*SOLD* 1989 AW11 with 3sgte for sale - $12K - Toyota MR2

Hi all,
 
I have finally found some time to get all this information together and take some photos of the car. I only did a quick wash and chamois on the exterior and nothing on the inside, frunk or boot. It has not been polished or clay barred in a very long time so doesn't look its best. Below are the details. If I've missed anything I'll come back and update it.
Only selling as I don't have time to drive it and would like to put the other car in the garage.
 
Showroom thread (with basically everything I have ever done to the car documented)
https://www.mr2australia.com/mr2play/tm.aspx?m=71528
 
1989 Toyota AW11 targa top
WA-54-AG (was 4ag) NSW Japanese number plates
Fitted with Gen 3 3SGTE and E153 LSD gearbox from a 1994+ SW20 MR2
Original engine conversion engineer report (from 2006) and import into Australia approval (from 2004) papers provided
KMs – 93,381 (when I bought it in 2012 it had roughly 70,000)
Build date 10/1988 and is an import from Japan
Colour is 28J White/Silver (only available in 1989 model year)
Has been stored in a dry garage the entire time I have owned it and driven in the rain less than 5 times.
Registration Jan 20th 2019
Comes with two sets of keys/remotes on a laser cut MR2 Keyring
 
Body
Most of the exterior is original paint and has some scratches, small dents and is a little faded on the silver section of the rear bumper.
I have had the side skirts and front lip re-painted in silver
It has super edition mirror T-Tops with T-Top seals replaced. Guides have also been replaced.
It has the standard 1989 build fitment of power folding mirrors and led spoiler brake light
The rear spoiler has started to split along the join on one side (common issue)
Passenger door has a scratch on lower edge in the silver section (there when I bought the car)
I have completed two lots of small surface rust repair near the B-pillar on both sides
The passenger side front guard has a scratch on the edge which I put some rust converter on (was there before I bought the car)
It has extremely rare genuine Toyota pop up yellow fog lights (They are working again. The relay was faulty)
In the frunk it comes with an original tool kit, double scissor jack, space saver spare and fire extinguisher
Black C-Pillar trims have some cracks which they all do unless they've been replaced
Fitted with super rare tow bar. I have restored this back to new condition with black paint and a new tow ball fitted. I have never towed anything with it. It also comes with the original rear bumper reo bar if you want to remove the tow bar (easily reversible)
Clear side indicators fitted (comes with original amber ones)
 
Interior
Fitted with Bride seat rails and Recaro LX black monza seats (these seats were factory optional in Japan)
SW20 1994+ shifter installed with SW20 98+ black leather shift knob
Leather boot for shifter and hand brake has been fitted
Mongoose alarm fitted M series. Also operates the central locking.
Pioneer stereo with Bluetooth audio and handsfree
AE82 Corolla GTi leather deep dish steering wheel
Custom MR2 car mats
All four speakers replaced
Twin 8in subwoofer installed in custom boxes along with amplifier under the passenger seat
No cracks in the dash
Led globes fitted to instrument cluster
Unused Japanese roadside flare fitted in flare holder
Interior T-Top covers
Lexus ES300 chrome door strikers
Old school Blitz boost gauge
Turbosmart street Electronic boost controller
The battery has been relocated in the left rear corner of the boot. The battery (Century) was recently replaced and a CTEK MXS 5.0 charger plugged in when not in use. This maintenance charger will come with the car.
 
Engine/driveline
SW20 1994+ 3sgte and E153 LSD gearbox standard ECU (recently had all the capacitors replaced)
Uses an (apparently) stronger gen 2 block with ARP head studs and metal head gasket. I’m not certain but I think the engine internals are stock (pistons, rods, cams etc)
Apexi air filter
Engine lid gas strut
DeltaV shifter spherical bushes
Cusco SW20 rear strut bar
Turbosmart Street electronic boost controller set at 17psi
Custom side mount intercooler using an SW20 Greddy copy kit
KO racing Intercooler fan shroud and 7.5 inch fan
Turbo is a CT26 and still runs the standard cast downpipe (although gutted)
All ignition components recently replaced
Turbosmart fuel pressure gauge fitted with a Blox adapter
Kirkosauraus red engine mount inserts
Kakimoto 3inch SW20 stainless exhaust customized to fit the AW11 body. The B pipe has an exhaust leak in the flex joint section which is easy to replace.
BC Racing BR series coil over suspension Front 4kg Rear 6kg
Engine has a tiny oil leak which is either coming from the sump seal or oil pump.
Almost all suspension components (including bearings/hubs) have been changed out to new OEM or aftermarket (no suspension noise or rattles at all and recently aligned)
The driveshafts have a torn boot on each and have ejected some of the grease. These can be easily fixed with new boots or buy brand new aftermarket drop in Celica ST185 GT4 front driveshafts for roughly $250 a pair
 
Wheels/Brakes
15 x 8 +35 and 15 x 7 + 35 Genuine Work Equip 03 Wheels
Genuine Work raised centre caps
Black steel nuts
Rear tyres are Federal RS-R 205/50/15 and Front are Pirelli 195/50/15 (I’ve been waiting for the rears to wear so I can fit the same tyres on the back. The semi slicks are a bit noisy)
Front rotors changes to EBC gold drilled and slotted with new pads. Rear rotors and pads are what was on the car when I got it. No pulsing or vibrations when braking.
 
Spares/other
Comes with the 3sgte air conditioning compressor, mounts, pulleys and hoses
All the ignition components I changed recently (probably nothing wrong with them)
Some other random bits like engine bay fan, air box and whatever else I can find
SW20 long dipstick and tube (car currently has a short Celica dip stick which is difficult to access/read)
Original Japanese brochure in excellent condition
AW11 supercharger plastic model (not built)
Beautiful Japanese diecast model car (wife paid $175AUD for this from memory)
Toyota MR2 book (Gold portfolio)
 
 
The price is $12k firm which I think is very fair. It does have a couple of minor faults so I’ve taken that into consideration when pricing. Please no kickers, I am really time poor at the moment so am looking for people who are genuinely interested in buying the car.
 
Located in the Hills District, Sydney.

    Cheers Aaron. When are you buying yours back? ;)
     
    Update: car is still available. I have also fixed the uber rare pop up fog lights. A new relay solved it.

    Hi Chausta,
     
    I am quite fair distance from the airport actually. An hour drive outside of peak hour.
     
    Can someone else come and check out the car or perhaps a detailed video if you are keen?

    Its over and above any AW I have seen before, Nicks attention to detail is nearly beyond compare. He's a dead set honest bloke as well.

    Cars like this don't come up very often AND being in the elusive two tone paint scheme. I hope you have a quick sale, Nick.
