1994 JZX90 Tourer V
Available for: $23,495
For those looking to step into a quintessential Japanese sport sedan with top-shelf modifications, consider this cherry 1994 JZX90 Tourer V. Equipped from the factory with Toyota's formidable 2.5L twin-turbo inline 6, this Mark II is a true wolf in sheep's clothing. With a slick-shifting automatic gearbox on board, this one would make for a fantastic daily commuter or family hauler as well! Finished in Deep Emerald Pearl (6N9) the body shows swell for being over 25 years old. This should come as no surprise, as this sport tourer has managed to rack up only 43k verified/documented miles over the years. Save for some expected rock chips and dings, the exterior shows nicely, with a factory front and rear spoiler perfectly accentuating the sleek factory bodylines. While the exterior looks tough, we do want to note some minor pulling on the fenders due to the aftermarket suspension and wheel setup. In regards to wheels, the polished 18" Riverside Zepter Mesh alloys serve as a perfect compliment to the otherwise stock bodywork, and BC coilovers eliminate any unsightly wheel gap and tie together this Tourer's aesthetic quite well. Fresh off of a recent service, this X90 Mark II is ripe with potential and is turn-key ready to roll. From a backroad touge to your highway commute, this Toyota is the perfect do-it-all Japanese Classic.
Inside the cabin, the soft and supple cloth interior is in good nick, lacking any major rips, tears, or stains. The seats provide plenty of support and are comfortable for daily use or on long drives. Thankfully, the interior condition is consistent with the mileage, with the low-lying dash displaying no unwanted cracks, peeling, or UV damage to note. A driver SRS airbag is also on hand to keep you safe behind the wheel. The automatic climate control is fully functional, ready to blast ice-cold A/C or hot heat when the weather permits. Toyota enthusiasts rejoice, the interior is near-stock and perfectly equipped for daily duty. A CarPlay equipped Pioneer headunit upgrade modernizes the cabin a touch, and lets your tunes blast at above average quality overall. A telescoping and tilt-adjustable steering column provides room to comfortably seat drivers of any and all sizes. Power windows, locks, and power-folding mirrors all operate smoothly and add to the utility of the cabin. OEM floor mats and original literature are included, and the trunk has ample space which is perfect for storing groceries, luggage, or whatever you need to transport throughout your day-to-day activities. The headliner is clean and taut, and apart from a miniscule burn hole on the driver's seat bolster, picking apart a low-mileage cabin like this is not an easy feat.
Under the hood, the 1JZ-GTE motor is ripe with horsepower and is the same unit found in the MK3 Supra. With two turbochargers on deck, this motor is already a riot in stock form, but the addition of a Greddy suction kit and massive front mount intercooler provides the power and response needed to make this one a blast to drive! The motor fires up swiftly with the twist of a key and idling is as smooth and refined as you'd expect from a luxury Toyota. A fresh oil and filter service was just performed in the shop and she's ready to rip! The aftermarket intake piping really accentuates the whoosh of the stock twin turbochargers, and this one rockets up to highway speeds in no time. The stock automatic gearbox does a fine job of controlling the shifts and is in good operation as you'd expect. Power is sent effortlessly to the rear wheels, and the brakes are strong if things start to go awry. The BC coilovers provide a ride that is firm yet controllable, and while this JZX truly shines on the backroads, it doesn't beat you up too badly over rougher pavement. A set of adjustable front and rear camber arms helps dial in the alignment and gives this JZX the drift inspired stance that these purpose-built cars are known for. Aspiring owners of this X90 should note than an aftermarket angle kit has been installed, which increases overall steering angle yet drastically affects low speed maneuverability. Perfect for drifting or corner carving, it also changes the steering weight. Overall, this is an incredibly well-maintained 90 with great miles to boot! With new rubber on all four corners you should have plenty of grip for years to come.
