Default Picked up a 92' SC3.

Well, after looking and looking for a factory five speed shell with no luck whatsoever, I decided to purchase this 92' shell for only $500.00. Extremely clean body with a clean Carfax. I never noticed that only 92' SC's did not have a passenger side airbag. To be quite honest, I really like the clean look of the dash without the airbag. Anyhow, I have a spare 2JZ block at work with a 1JZ head and I'm thinking about just making a 1.5 out of it and mating it to an R154.

I figured it was a pretty good deal compared to what everybody else is asking for their shells 😉

I’ve always preferred the single airbag. Out of 4 sc’s only one had dual.

Thanks Guys. I'm going to paint it black right away and then start on piecing together more crap for the build. I was thinking about adding either a deep purple or deep blue pearl to a gallon of black paint. Still undecided. This car is perfect for what I'm doing as I already have a spare block and trans and I'm gutting out half of the interior.

Great find and at a really good price.

My SC300 is black and IMO that is the very best color for this body. I would be interested to see some pictures of it after it gets painted, especially if you mix in the pearl.

Is the trans you already have a 5-speed or an automatic?

It has the stock automatic transmission in it as of now. I want a manual transmission that can handle 1000 horsepower, so I think I might have to go with either a CD009 or a T56.
