Additional Info

1988 Toyota Supra Turbo restomod Classic up for sale. I bought this 3 years ago and put in a lot of elbow grease to get it into this shape. Tons of money and time invested into this garage queen which is occasionally driven on nice dry days.  Work personally done to restore this car to current condition.

New paint-job. Car was originally white - I changed it to black

Interior Condition:

New Sound System - Kenwood 220W door Speakers; Kenwood Double-din Dash with Bluetooth, Spotify, etc. handsfree connectivity; Pioneer 13" sub with built in 1300W amp for a terrific sound!
Restored and revived Interior - Leather, Seats, Dash are all original. Touched up and polished nicely. Steering wheel, dash and front seats are in excellent condition for age with no tears. Center console was refinished with a carbon fiber inlay near shifter for cool look. Cruise Control, Power Windows, Power Door Locks, Power Mirrors, Power Antenna, Flip up lights - all work!
Roof liner looks great - no tears or rips
Targa Top removes and reattaches no issues (however tends to leak in heavy rain)

Driving Impression:
Original miles are super low for 31 years old car... 5,600 miles per year!  Stood around in a field for 10+ years too.
Get a ton of thumbs up literally every time I'm out with this car - some younger kids ask "what car is that?!"  Guys my age know this from our younger days and always wanted one!  Well now I built it and love it!!!
Engine runs strong and pulls hard.  Its not a 2JZ rocket but for a OEM style its pretty solid 7M-GTE, making about 250-280 with stock internals, regular turbo, intake and exhaust mods only. Waste gate has been tightened for 12 psi (instead of 8 psi factory) so it gets up and goes for a classic.
Transmission is all stock and still strong 4 speed auto. Had it checked out by a transmission shop when I rebuilt the engine and they said it shifts great and works perfectly as designed. So nothing to worry there. 
Coilovers are a bit on the stiff side, but ride height is adjustable. Handling is tight and there is hardly any lean in turns. Huge improvement over stock.
Brake calipers are stock but stop great. I refreshed everything I could easily and make old stuff look new again.
Wheels and tires have hardly 2,000 miles since I did the restoration. Excellent dry and wet grip. 
In short - I love driving this car and even looking at it sitting in my garage.  I have a full 450 HP upgraded 57 trim CT26 turbo, 550 cc injectors, Lexus V8 AFM and FMIC chrome hard-piping kit ready install but didn't yet, because I like it as-is. However I think I miss the fun of building the car and may want to do another restomod.
