Available for: $16,995
Stock Number: 4423
Perhaps the closest design to a four-door Supra, this 1994 Toyota Mark II is capable of otherworldly performance with seating for the whole family. Prized for its 1JZ-GTE, rear-wheel-drive, and its manual transmission, it's a hard one to beat. The body is in good shape other than a few minor dings and chips associated with normal use. Finished in Dark Green Mica (6M2) it features the desirable factory aero and decent power amenities. This Japanese Classic if offered with only 126K verified miles and is a confirmed one-owner vehicle!
The interior condition far exceeds your average JZX90, and it's obvious this car was well cared for in Japan. The original owners manual and factory plush carpet mats are even included with the sale, an ode to this sedans unmolested nature. The dash is in good shape, and devoid of any major damage such as discoloration or cracks. A JDM Carrozzaria nav unit sist atop it, and is the only interior modification to note. The automatic climate system works as it should and keeps occupants in their optimal comfort zones with a few quick adjustments. The seats, trimmed in a soft gray cloth, are in above average condition. Bolstered to accommodate five people in comfort for long journeys, the front and rear have no rips stains or tears to note. The carpet, door cards, and headliner are in equally good shape and trimmed in various hues of gray and charcoal to break up the interior a bit. Woodgrain accents located in the center stack and armrest give a slightly upmarket aesthetic. Power windows and locks are standard, and the mirrors are the same. The interior is not perfect, and there is some light wear on the steering wheel and shift boot and the power-folding mirror function is no longer operational. After all, this is a 26-year-old car, but the condition is still impressive.
The mechanicals and drivetrain are likely the reason someone will purchase this performance saloon, which is no big secret. 1JZ-GTE powered cars feel more akin to rocketships, and at speeds only legal at your local track, the car never fails to stop pulling! This twin-turbo mill is surely one of the best Toyota has ever designed. The startup is instant with the twist of the key and the two and half-liter gasoline motor hardly vibrates. Benefitting from a fresh semi-synthetic oil and filter change, the 1J requires no scheduled maintenance for another 3K mile. Beyond the NVH benefits of a perfectly balanced six, the engine in stock form is quiet, until you matte the throttle. Power is sent rearward through the factory R154 five-speed transmission. Shifts are effortless and the transmission doesn't have any clunks or hitches when making gear changes. The longer wheelbase lends itself to a quality ride, and makes this a top-notch freeway car. The OEM suspension keeps you insulated from the road without feeling floaty. Acceleration is brisk, but if you keep the Mark II at legal speeds, highway fuel economy is surprisingly decent. The steering is smooth, and the brakes are confident. The OEM alloys all have newly installed tires at all four corners to deliver maximum grip.
This clean, original sports sedan is a great value on so many levels. It would be fantastic as a weekend cruiser, track day toy, or simply your daily? With gobs of power, a proper stickshift, and room for five this Tourer V is too good to miss out on, trust us.
