    Car belongs to my cousins husband, it is a 1997 Toyota Supra - Special Edition. Car is in immaculate condition and was a US car, never has seen salt. The car was bought from the actor Adrian Paul 2 years ago and since then has been used for showroom use and test drives. The paint is original. There are 24000 original miles.

    I don't have many other details or the mod list on this car, however you can call My cousin Ellysa or her husband Dave @ 902-543-9773 for any more info.

    Asking price is $25'000.00 CAD,

    Pics of the car:

    It is shitty it is an auto, but that's an easy fix. Could prolly do a manual conversion for about 1500 bucks.

    I'm gonna say the conversion would be pretty damn easy, but I think it'll run a fella a little more than 1500 bucks..

    Automatic would make a better drag car. Just install a different torque converter and yer gold.

    Where is the car located?

    Also, you say "used for showroom use and test drives."
    What do you mean? Do they own a car dealership of some sort, or is this some other kind of showroom?

    Hmm, I was interested, but just did some research.
    An automatic to manual conversion on that car is between $6000 and $7000USD.
    (About $1500 of which is labour, so that's a variable.)
    The base Tranny seems to be $2000+, and you need about $2500 of random parts from Toyota (clutch pedal, master cylinder, flywheel etc.)

    I haven't looked into how much you could sell the Automatic tranny for yet.

    Still, with the $ right now, that's under $35K once everything is done.. still not bad.

    But, anybody looking for a drag car, the auto's are actually faster in a straight line then the manuals, so this car is a deal and a half for that.

    Are you sure that car is TT ?? ... I swore I saw that on Ebay a while back and it was NA ?

    Not doubting your smarts, just the info you were givin' ... I am almost 100% sure that car was NA ?? ... it's hardtop too ... a 97' Supra TT Hardtop is a hard find.
