Whenever I have some free time, I will update info on our list based on what is on Carfax so we know exactly what is going on with these original 5 speeds Model 1997 . For the current owners of these cars , you are free to submit your complete VIN and let us know its current location, mileage and title status of the car .

Thanks a lot ThomasGS4 for helping us update info on these cars . Hopefully .. will help make these cars valuable and desirable , being one of the few who owns a 1 of 120. I know a good number of the current list are not anymore owned by the person on the list but unfortunately the current owner either isn't a forum member or simply never claimed that he owns it now and the former owner never mentioned that he sold it .

SUMMARY :


75 1997 SC300 original 5 speed (1 of 120) on the list (2 inaccurate VINs not included)
32 owned by known clublexus members
43 owners unknown

out of the 75 , 13 have been issued SALVAGE / TOTAL LOSS Titles
out of the 75 , 4 that have been previously issued SALVAGE Titles have been repaired then got REBUILT TITLES


History Table for the Soarer Model: JZZ31 3.0ltr -> month and year a car rolled out of the factory by their VIN (serial #)


Here is a table I lifted from Wikipedia that can be informative . Looks like this info is based on Calendar Year. The annotations in blue are references from which the editors lifted the numbers. Looks like they have lumped the 1991 production with the 1992 that is why the number of production is a lot bigger than sales and technically the Lexus SC model started in 1992. So is the 120 number only for the 1997 calendar year manufactured vehicles ? I still don't know ! Hope one day we will find a more credible source and will find out .

Looks like we'll have to update above, your car was accounted for and was owned by Sorrabun.

SUMMARY :


75 1997 SC300 original 5 speed (1 of 120) on the list (2 inaccurate VINs not included)
32 owned by known clublexus members
43 owners unknown

out of the 75 , 13 have been issued SALVAGE / TOTAL LOSS Titles
out of the 75 , 4 that have been previously issued SALVAGE Titles have been repaired then got REBUILT TITLES


History Table for the Soarer Model: JZZ31 3.0ltr -> month and year a car rolled out of the factory by their VIN (serial #)


Here is a table I lifted from Wikipedia that can be informative . Looks like this info is based on Calendar Year. The annotations in blue are references from which the editors lifted the numbers. Looks like they have lumped the 1991 production with the 1992 that is why the number of production is a lot bigger than sales and technically the Lexus SC model started in 1992. So is the 120 number only for the 1997 calendar year manufactured vehicles ? I still don't know ! Hope one day we will find a more credible source and will find out .

OR ... was it produced in 1997 and they knew that they were only producing that much 5 speed in 1997 .

OR ... was it after the fact brochure ? Still curious ... though the production table indicates Calendar Year Production.

Having 79 Model 1997 SC300 5 speed accounted for seems like a pretty good percentage already. Hopefully one day , we get nearer the actual production number.
i'm almost absolutely certain at this point that 120 models include those made in '96. Look at the brochure here...


the model pictured still has pre-97 bumpers, tails, and spoiler.. seems to have 97+ skirts and rear fender lip tho. not a mistake i think they'd make 5 months into production

also, when looking up JT8CD32Z7V1000382, the site listing the shell for sale lists "Manual Conversion $1,000 pedals (clutch, brake)" on its listing... so it's not really a 1/120 then, is it?

Correct, confirmed with my database that it was originally an automatic car.

Also, my database confirmed that the Phoenix Craigslist example is indeed a 1/120.

what a beast, 459K... and what a shame about the loss

and by the looks of the VIN/door tag listed on Copart's website, it seems like one of, if not the last of the 120 5-spd SC300s produced

WHY oh why are the trim codes different for these two? they are both DWP (051), I have seen many ivory trim interiors labeled as LD07 but what is LD21? also, does anyone know the trim code for black and two-tone interiors?

Hint hint, any Lexus interior code where the first numerical is a 0, it has tan interior. Any interior where the first numerical is a 2, it has black interior. That was my VIN plate you posted; I have factory black interior.
