1985 Toyota Supra
Hatchback Car for sale by Harwood Motors in Macedonia, Ohio 44056
If you're a fan of vintage Japanese cars, be sure to check out Nissan's online heritage site. There are tons of vintage Nissan pics and specs going all the way back to the 1920s. Each featured car or truck has relevant specs and a little "detail" tab that gives some background on that specific car.
The Volkswagen Kombi van reached iconic status, with even a school lunch box fashioned in its image. During those early years, the Volkswagen Microbus morphed into various forms. From a cargo carrier with no windows behind the driver's seat to a windowed passenger van with three rows of seats, the possibilities seemed endless.
Classic Car Overview
Incredible original car! P-Type performance model, loaded with options including leather interior, extensive service records and documentation, everything works, drives like new. ‘80s icon in fantastic shape!
That’s 98% original paint, which not only looks awesome today but eliminates the potential for hidden issues lurking underneath. There’s zero evidence of bodywork or accident damage aside from a $200 20-year-old receipt for touch up paint behind the left rear wheel, and if this car has ever seen more than a spring shower I’d be surprised. Code 3F2 paint is amusingly called, “Super Deep Red,” and it looks great—not too bright, but not burgundy, either, offering the same balance of sporty and sophisticated as the rest of the car. By 1985, Toyota’s reputation for quality was already well established, so panel fit is excellent even by today’s standards. Up close you can see a few minor nicks, but it really does look as good in person as it does in photos. The preservation really is remarkable.
This is a P-Type, which means Performance, and it carries optional leather upholstery. Like the rest of the car, someone was VERY careful about maintaining the leather and the seats show only very minor signs of use and age. You will note that this car is loaded, including power windows, locks, and mirrors, automatic climate control with ice cold A/C, cruise control, rear defroster, a tilt steering column, and a decent-sounding AM/FM/cassette stereo with a graphic equalizer (remember those?). Big, easy-to-read analog gauges all work correctly, and I suppose it’s worth mentioning that nobody has ever smoked in this car. In back, the nicely finished fold-down seats look virtually unused and the headliner is like new with no sagging. The hatch area includes a working privacy shade (virtually unobtainium!) as well as sensible tie-downs and protective rub strips on the carpet, which shows only one minor faded spot as a demerit. Underneath, the original Dunlop spare tire and matching alloy wheel are as-new and have never been used. The original jack and lug wrench in its factory pouch are also included.
For 1985, the 5M-GE 2.8 liter DOHC inline-6 was significantly upgraded, now making 161 horsepower and 169 pounds of torque. In today’s world, that seems fairly modest but in practice the Supra is just a delight to drive, more like an early E-Type Jaguar than a late-model performance car. The silky-smooth six just accelerates without a single vibration all the way through its power band and never seems to run out of breath. Thanks to fuel injection, it starts instantly, idles properly, and goes about its business as any modern Toyota should. You can instantly see that this car has been superbly maintained and has never seen inclement weather—just check out all the lovely gold cadmium plating under the hood! Aside from a few replacement parts and restoration items (the valve cover has been repainted, for instance) the engine bay is completely original and fully operational. Correct hose clamps, fittings, hardware, and even a Toyota battery make it look factory fresh.
Underneath, it’s just as nice with outstanding original floors still showing red paint overspray and the factory textured undercoating. The 4-speed automatic transmission is a great traveling partner, and with 4.10 gears on a limited slip, it’s punchy as hell. Set the ECT to “Power” and disengage the overdrive, and you’ll be pleasantly surprised by how well this Supra can hustle. Of course, a lot of that is due to the all-independent suspension, which is competent but comfortable, and the powerful 4-wheel disc brakes. You’ll note more service work under here, including some recent work on the CV joints, fresh shocks at all four corners, a new cat-back exhaust system that has an awesome baritone soundtrack, and new brakes all around. Factory 14-inch alloy wheels are unmarked and carry a recent set of 225/60/14 BFGoodrich T/A radials all around.
Extras include a full set of owner’s manuals, original window sticker (showing a rather eye-opening $18,108 MSRP), ownership documents back to Day One, and EXTENSIVE service receipts dating back 30 years. Few cars are better-documented than this Supra.
If you grew up in the ‘80s, you probably remember these cars fondly. Some guys were doing 5.0 Mustangs, but some of us were playing with early Japanese performance cars and understand that the balance, sophistication, and overall quality of a car like this Supra makes it feel contemporary even today. This is arguably the best one available anywhere—just look at the photos, the documentation, and the specifications. As with everything else in the collector car world, it’s always smartest to spend a little extra and buy a great car rather than try to make a cheap car into a great one. Even if you’re merely reliving the past with this Supra, you will surely find that this is one case where the past is every bit as good as you remember. Call now!
