1994 Toyota JZX90 Tourer V
Who said sedans can't be just as fun as sport coupes? Toyota of the 90's would wholeheartedly disagree, and it wasn't just all talk. They built the car that proves this sentiment as wrong as could be. More interior space, a couple of turbos under the hood, and the Toyota emblem on the back to remind those who doubt what just passed them! This 1994 Toyota Mark II Tourer V is a prime example of a sporty driveline and 5 passenger capability, all mixed together to create one of the best sport sedans ever built by any manufacturer. This Mark II is finished in a beautiful Dark Green (6N2) and offered with a measly 56K verified and documented miles on the chassis. The body is in good shape with minor blemishes and scuffs to report. The paint was refinished by the previous owner and while it does show well, could benefit from a good wet sand and buff. Aside from a set of 18" multispoke wheels and OEM 1 piece rainguards, the exterior remains in the design that Toyota intended. Another low mileage, a performance-oriented sedan that is a true Japanese Classic.
This sedan offers plenty of interior cabin space to seat 5 comfortably. Heaps of leg and headroom make this commuter a fun car to drive and comfortable. The driver benefits from a tilt-adjustable steering column along with power windows, locks, mirrors, and foldable mirrors for tight parking. The sunroof is present but is inoperable to open or tilt. The seats are in good condition with no rips or tears to note. The door cards are intact and the carpet is clear from stains. Above, the headliner has no signs of sagging in the fabric and has been well taken care of. The dash has some cracking over the gauge cluster due to UV exposure over the years. A woodgrain center console breaks up the color throughout the cabin and is a nice touch. The OEM radio is still present and is operable for all your 90s music needs. The automatic climate control functions properly for your heat and cold A/C and is easily activated with a touch of 1 button. Inside the glove box, you will even find the original owner's manuals! Overall, the interior is tidy and is obvious the previous owner took pride in ownership.
The powerplant behind this sleeper of a sedan is the twin turbo 1JZ-GTE 2.5L inline 6 cylinder. With two turbos and a bulletproof engine, this "4dr supra" is no slouch, whatsoever. Instant startup with a turn of the key thanks to a new 12V battery. A new timing belt and serpentine belts were installed by our trained technicians to get the maintenance up to par, and the driveshaft center bearing was also replaced. Power is driven to the rear wheels and the acceleration is linear. Brand new tires at all four corners allow grip and traction for miles to come. Originally, the JZX90 came with an automatic transmission but was swapped out to a 5-speed manual transmission using all OEM parts by the previous owner. The shifts are seamless with no grinding in between shifts and the clutch is light. New front brake pads and rotors were installed here stateside along with rear brake pads, to provide plenty of stopping force to slow this sedan down when you need it. There is a Starbo G-12 turbo timer on the steering column to help let the engine run a little longer after a spirited drive on the back roads too. A Blitz catback exhaust adds a subtle tone when you are driving without a drone at cruising speeds. The suspension choice is Potenza struts and Tein springs, which is forgiving and handles great with the aggressive 18" wheels with no rubbing. An overall sleeper family hauler with the powerplant of the supra!
