1996 JZX100 Chaser
Not only is the JZX100 chassis now legal to import in the US but they can also be affordable! The Tourer S was the model right below the famed Tourer V and provides you with five-lug hubs and a 1JZ powerplant, just not turbocharged. This low mileage 1996 Chaser Tourer S is the perfect starting point for a high-level build or a unique and fun daily driver. Having a mere 68k verified and documented miles it's barely broken in. Finished in Ebony Teal (6N9), the exterior is in great condition and sports a subtle front and rear lip kit and a low-key set of side skirts. With killer looks, practicality, and the ability to make it your own, the JZX100 Chaser is certainly a Japanese Classic!
One look inside the cabin and it's obvious the previous owner took some pride in ownership. The tidy well kept interior trimmed in the desirable black with grey accents is in great condition throughout. The seats show very little wear and no rips, tears, or major stains. The same can be said about the carpets and headliner, both showing well with no major staining. The dash has also held up well and has no cracks, but does show light UV damage around the defrost vents. The radio has been removed, but all of the wiring is intact and a quick trip to your local stereo shop will get the tunes going again. The digital automatic climate control works well and provides a comfortable temperature with working A/C and heat.
Powering the Tourer S is the 1JZ-GE. Toyota's reliable straight-six is quick enough to get up to highway speeds with any effort and makes for an enjoyable daily driver. Additionally, if you ever got the itch for more power the turbocharged version is a plug-and-play affair. A new battery makes starting up the N/A engine quick and easy. The idle is so smooth and you can hardly tell the engine is running. Our trained technicians have additionally performed some excellent maintenance including new front lower ball joints, new rear spindle bushings taking care of the suspension. A new alternator was installed which gets the charging systems to pass with flying colors and a new thermostat was installed to keep engine temps in check. Lastly, we mounted and balanced four brand new tires and performed an oil and filter service. This excellent driving JZX100 is turn-key and ready for you to make your own!
