Looking for a new DD and contemplating selling or trading my baby for it. Figuratively of course.
I have a 1989 Toyota Cressida (MX83) in MINT condition. 170,xxx on odometer. The vehicle belonged to an older gentleman who was a LONG time customer of the shop where I use to work. Autoworx in Hendersonville, NC. A Toyota/Lexus specialist shop. I have EXSTENSIVE repair records back to 2004 when Autoworx opened. When he purchased the car in 2004 from an unknown to me owner he had it professionally repainted the factory color at Oates Body Shop. Again in Hendersonville, NC. Since 2004 he had reupholstered the interior, all but the rear seat. And replaced almost everything on the car. I will give a brief list below. For more detailed "repair/replace" history PM me. I came into ownership of the car late last year when it blew a headgasket. The 7M was notorious for blowing head gaskets because of the low torque spec on the head bolts from the factory. He decided he didn't want the car anymore and sold it to me. I replaced the headgasket and had the head machined and have been driving it ever since. Here is what I have done to the car since I GOT IT:
-R&R headgsket and machined cylinder head surface
-Megan coilovers with relocated front sway bar end links
-JVC in dash NAV with bluetooth
-17x8.5 & 17x10 BBS reps with new tires
-7M-GTE fan and clutch
-Meticulous detailing AT LEAST twice a week
My TRADE price is set at $8500. My CASH price is $6500 OBO.
Here are a few maintenance items done by previous owner:
-Valve Cover gaskets with upgraded bolts
-power steering rack and tie rod ends
-front and rear strut and shock replcement
-power antenna replacement
I can print out ALL of the repair history back to 2004.
EVERYTHING WORKS! A/C, climate control, power windows, power sunroof, power antenna, interior lights.... EVERYTHING!
Now for the pics. Several of the pics are before I lowered it to its current ride height:
