Description:

Finally going to sell my baby. I have owned this car for 10 years in February. It was purchased from another CL member back in 2009. He built a clean car with most of the performance mods below and poured over $10k into mods (receipts on hand). I since added quite a bit to it - full mod list below.


Would love to keep it and fix her back up but just don't have the time or space. I hope to pass this on to another CL member who can take her back to 100%.


1999 Lexus SC400 (only 905 ever made!)

Interior:
-converted OEM tan to black interior except the tan headliner
-the top trims and some below the grain and carpet are OEM black, bottom half panels is dyed with SEM (some minor spots need touch-up but have extra paint)
-black ITR (Integra Type R) Recaro suede racing seats with Wedge brackets
-black Gucci fabric upholstered on all armrests
-JVC touchscreen double-din headunit
-SC430 3-spoke wood and leather steering wheel
- Z-Edge S3 front and rear Dash Camera - wired to internal fuse box so wires are hidden

-all lights replaced with LEDs
-FatMat sound deadening entire interior
-aftermarket radio antenna that needs to be wired

Exterior:

-Wald front lip (very rare but damaged)
-Vertex rep sides/rear lip

-19" Varrstoen ES37 (9.5" front, 11" rear) CCW Classic reps w/ 235/35/19 Lexani front, 265/30/19 Achilles rear tires
-Turn signal mirror covers (very hard to find these - needs to be wired) - have spare set of black OEM mirrors I'll throw in

-shaved antenna

**JDM rain visors no longer available

Recently replaced:

Stock options present:

-Nakamichi premium sound system (rears not currently connected with headunit)
-Homelink in driver's side visor
-no flickering needles! these clusters are different from older years
-updated 1UZ-FE V8 with VVT-i for the 1998-2000 models


The car has a salvage title. Driver door, trunk and rear bumper are not original. The car was originally Black 202 and was re-painted the same color when the salvage was repaired. There is some existing body damage from a later hit and run while street-parked in the rear left quarter panel and front left fender. Bumpers and lips have damage and wear and tear from street parking and when it was lower.


Runs really well as-is but will need new or rebuilt coilovers to run smoother. The engine and all else is solid - runs very well as a daily.

Additional parts: I have an authentic Vertex front lip and a 92-96 OEM style full carbon fiber spoiler I can sell with if interested.


Serious buyers only.
Will have it smog tested before purchase.

Do those seats allow the driver to sit a lot lower than factory?

I didn't measure the actual difference but it does sit lower than factory. I have ample clearance overhead with these (I am 6' for reference).
