It's interesting that no one (well at least from what I've seen) posted the rare Shadow Rose Quartz/3K7 that was produced in fewer numbers than RSP that everyone knows about or goes after. SRQ also came factory with two toned OEM black & tan interior.It also was the only color offered with black factory wheels or chrome option. I was lucky enough to find one yesterday in Orlando, FL. in MINT condition

My Fav is 1995 because it has a lot of the little updates and none of the odb2 nonsense. I'll install some 97 parts when I get around to it..

And 1JZ the First SC ever in the US was a SC400 in 1992, the sc3 was released a little later same year
Yep, OBD2 crap kicked in 96+ and so did VVTi on the 2JZ. I don't know how I truly feel about the VVTi, but I don't admire it just like with OBD2. Love the sniffer test at the emissions testings.

Really any factory 5 speed SC300 is considered rare/desireable/will fetch a premium.

I consider my 1992 SC300/5 speed to be a very rare breed. I'd rate it a solid #2, no plus or minus on the collector car scale, it wears 100% of its factory paint, has never been hit, the interior is immaculate, yes that is original leather and carpets, everything on this car works, and it runs like a swiss watch with 67k on the clock.

I personally love the pearl white/ivory interior combo. Only changes from stock are the wheels and I changed all the badges from gold to chrome. Under the hood its 100% stock.









I've owned a bunch of newer cars, but in terms of condition this car is by far the nicest thing I've ever owned. While I appreciate the condition of my SC, what really draws me to this car is the timeless design. The lines on this car just really speak to me, it was a unique design 21 years ago, and IMO it still stands the test of time, with the right wheels these cars are an ageless beauty. Perhaps because Lexus never evolved the design into the next generation, it was a one and done deal, there was no sucessor to make our cars look dated IMO.
