Default FS: 1992 Lexus SC400, Original Paint, 1JZGTE swap, alot of goodies

HISTORY:

Up for sale is my 1992 SC400. I am the fourth owner and have had this car for over seven years now. The original owner was a doctor out of Birmingham, AL., who ordered it from a dealer in Wisconsin. The second owner was a lady who owned it for about 7 years. She owned it locally and had it serviced at the local Huntsville, AL., Lexus dealership. I have the receipts. My buddy bought it from her. He only owned it for about 6 months. I just turned 40, and I have come to realize that this is getting old, and I need a truck. I am in no way shape or form, hurting for money, so I ask each of you who are interested in this car, please donít waste my time, if not a serious buyer. No joyrides please.

It is the very first year of the Lexus luxury coupe. It has the following modifications all done by myself, minus some of the wiring. The color is the original factory pearl white paint with SEM black landau painted interior. I had the front and rear bumper painted with the gas tank cover when I performed the swap. The body itself has about 300K but the ODO is showing only 135K, but the original paint is still very glossy and shiny. Anyone who has seen this car, knows how clean it is. The 1JZ had only approximately 54K miles. When I did the motor swap, I had the power steering rebuilt, new valve cover gaskets, new clips on injectors, new water pump, had alternator rebuilt, flow tested the injectors, and ALL seals were replaced. Still have ALL receipts of work and the ORIGINAL window sticker. The trunk still has the original full size spare tire, jack and first aid kit. I removed the 12 disc changer and the console cellular phone. Everything on the car works, with the exception of power antenna (which is still on the car and I have it unplugged in the rear), and cruise control (removed with swap, still have module). The door hinges do not pop, climate screen has NO bleeding, and cranks up every time after allowing the fuel pump to prime for 2-3 seconds. It has been my DD for almost a year. I did not originally build this SC to be my daily driver, only occasional.

I am asking $11K for this car. Where else can you get a very nice clean car that has been through completely, for this amount? Car made 467rwhp at 16psi on 93 pump gas, and 522rwhp at 21psi on pump gas, without any early detonation. I have videos of the dyno to prove it. It was also over 100 degrees in the bay when this was done. Pulls pretty strong, no noise, no nothing. Just the whistle of the BW singing to yours ears. I can do 117mph by GPS in the 3rd gear.
I might be missing a few things here and there, but the car has been garaged since the day I bought it. I spared no expense and you can feel free to look it over and under at your expense or use my garage. I actually encourage it. I have provided plenty of pictures, and if you need more of a particular area, feel free to ask. I have saved over 1K photos of this build and for insurance purposes.

BAD:

Rear main seal is leaking
I believe it is due to the original oil catch can setup was not allowing the crankcase pressure to properly vent with me using a wye to split the valve cover vents into one inlet on can. The new one was installed two days ago and has a vacuum port through the intake and two separate inlets, size -10 AN. It has an idling issue at random. At dead cold up to operating temperature it is perfect, but after driving for about 10 miles or so and completely warmed up, the idle starts to surge, making the wideband go crazy. It doesnít do this all the time, but most of the time. With the A/C on, it idles perfect, at 12.3-13.8. I have adjusted the AEM several times to adjust it, but I only made it worse. I am NOT a tuner. The tuner bill alone with the upgraded lines, were over $3700 bucks with a receipt to prove it. The driver side headlight leaks, but dries almost completely in about 2-3 hours on a hot day. The car does have 2 minor dings in the left rear quarter panel, but these are the worst of the whole car. Overall it is very good shape for its age.

My email address is [email protected] or call me directly at 205-482-5533. If you TEXT ME, I WILL NOT REPLY, IF YOU ARE SERIOUSLY INTERESTED IN THIS CAR, THEN CALL OR EMAIL.
Thanks for viewing and have a great day.

Don't apologize for that..

Car sold within one hour of being on Ebay. I guy named Mike from Missouri, purchased the car. We met in Tupelo, MS. I did a few pulls for him and he drove it back. Cash was exchanged. I went home with the intentions of getting a new Tundra. Well, I did. Since then, he has replaced the front seats with new racing ones, Volks 19 inch wheels, new gear shifter, and complete Vortex kit. I told him not to have it repainted, it just looked to good to me.

He has kept in touch and sent me several pictures of the car. He has enjoyed this SC from day, and has had ZERO issues with the car. He has a new Nissan GTR, 370Z, SC430 convertible, and 2014 Tundra, and a few others...
