SUMMARY :


78 1997 SC300 original 5 speed (1 of 120) on the list (2 inaccurate VINs not included)
32 owned by known clublexus members
46 owners unknown

out of the 77 , 13 have been issued SALVAGE / TOTAL LOSS Titles
out of the 77 , 4 that have been previously issued SALVAGE Titles have been repaired then got REBUILT TITLES
out of the 77 , 4 has not been checked on carfax


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 .

Just an update. I haven't used my old account Niawst. I don't know the password and the e-mail account was deleted.

JT8CD32ZXV0039571. Salvaged in 2009. Rebuilt in 2010.

Finally driving now, going to paint and put wheels on soon,
will get the 3 digit number on the lower portion of the door tag when I have the opportunity, but here it is last week.

Any more 97 original SC300 5 speed you have seen posted anywhere that is not on this list ? Looks like we are reaching the number of 1997 SC300 5 speed still known or seen by anyone , are all the rest of the 1 of 120 gone to oblivion ?

SUMMARY :


79 1997 SC300 original 5 speed (1 of 120) on the list (2 inaccurate VINs not included)
32 owned by known clublexus members
47 owners unknown

out of the 77 , 14 have been issued SALVAGE / TOTAL LOSS Titles
out of the 77 , 4 that have been previously issued SALVAGE Titles have been repaired then got REBUILT TITLES
out of the 77 , 4 has not been checked on carfax


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 .

Any other 1 of 120 SC300 still out there not on the list ?

Looks like we have exhausted the list . Being 22 years old now , I will wager that not even half of these 1 of 120 are still running which makes them even rare now.

out of the 80 , 4 has not been checked on carfax

Gerry, tomorrow I'll check on the 4 cars that have yet to have a carfax check performed.

Also with great sadness, I no longer own my '97 5spd. "Matador," a long time friend and ClubLexus member, now owns the car.

Thanks buddy .

Well many times in life , we do what we have to do . We usually have no control with what is in store for our future . As long as we set our priorities always straight , everything will be all right .All these are material things that will pass and even us will pass . We can't own them forever. Let me know who owns it now and I can update the list .

Like I have damn trying to sell my two and they don't want to leave me ... . All I get are people who do not know anything about them so are all tire kickers or low ballers.

SUMMARY :


86 1997 SC300 original 5 speed (1 of 120)
32 owned by known clublexus members
54 owners unknown if they are clublexus members

out of the 86 , 15 have been issued SALVAGE / TOTAL LOSS Titles
out of the 85 , 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 .

JT8CD32Z7V1000088, #40 on your list, was my baby from 72k miles to 115k miles in 2006/7 until 2011. Sold to member 'SEXC' on here, but he's not particularly active on the forums, so I don't have any more updates. Same area of CA, though, so it looks like it's still in his possession (with less than 10k miles put on it in 8 years(!!)).

I've regretted selling that car literally every day for the past 8 years.

I'm back because last week I bought a 1/17 RSP/Black '97 SC400.

Glad you are back with an SC

How do you know that there were only 17 RSP 1997 SC400 ? I kept asking where people are getting the breakdown of SCs by colors but no one so far have mentioned a reliable source in I don't how many years I have been asking . Where people are pulling these numbers from has always been a mystery to me !

It will be nice to find the source or database of SC production by colors . I have been in search of that source for a long while now !

I actually spent a good bit of time looking for that source myself since I bought the car. I don't have a definite source. Last time I was involved, there was a thread/master source with solid production numbers, but I searched and searched and was unable to relocate it. Apparently there used to be an "Intellexual.net" site that had the production numbers, too, but that site is no longer active. For that 1/17 number, I found 5-6 separate places on CL and elsewhere that mentioned there only being 17 RSP/Black SC400s, but I suppose I can't back that up with a really reliable source. Sorry!

^^^ OK .. no problem . It will just be nice if we all know a reliable source that will backup all the numbers that we see regularly mentioned / repeated with regards production by colors. Until I see that source , I feel like these numbers where pulled out of thin air and repeated by whoever reads them .
