What about hard tops/ no sun roof? I come from the supra world so things are slightly different. I just picked up a sc300 for a daily and actually liked it more than I thought I would.

I wanna find out the general consensus on what is the most desired.

I hear ya lol. The market is soft right now, The one I recently picked up I pretty much stole, if I told ya how much I paid you wouldn't believe me. It's a buyers market and I'm trying to capitalize on that while I can.

........ that was never a factory option my buddy owns a Lexus dealership and informed me that those were all after market chop tops that people had done. He also said the rsp seems to be the most collectable out of all the models, if any one else has any input please share it.

Beautiful car, does anyone else realistically think that it will sell at that price?

I say the either the last year of the SC, 2000, or the very first SC ever came off the floor. To this day, I don't know the color, specs, options, etc, for the first SC ever made.

Obviously it's the 92 sunroof 5-speed in Royal Jade... Who wouldn't want one of those?????



Not sure how many exist but RSP 97 5-speed hardtop would be it. I think there is maybe 1 member on here that had one but I'm not even certain it was a real 97.

A '95 Sc 300/400 in Teal Mist Metallic, especially in a 5spd. The color was offered for only one year then discontinued. And the fact that I have the color.
