1986 Toyota MR2 MKIa

Desirable slick-top pre-facelift example with JanSpeed backbox; scope to use and improve; recent clean MOT and just 114 miles covered in the last 8 years

Dating from May 1986 this late model MR2 MkI-a, is we gather among the last of the pre-facelift versions and is finished in red and sits upon a set of later MkIb 14” eight-hole alloy wheels and shows 95,624 miles.

Under the engine cover, sitting amidships is the naturally aspirated 1.6 litre 4A-GE inline-four cylinder DOHC engine with Denso electronic port fuel injection and T-VIS variable intake geometry which enables the engine to produce 128bhp driving the rear wheels via five-speed manual transmission.

Inside, we find two-tone red and charcoal cloth interior with black door cards, dash and carpets. In addition, we see electric windows, electric mirrors, digital clock, retro-fit radio/CD player, retro-fit steering wheel and metal gear knob. We also note fitment of a cheeky Janspeed back box which gives the car a more sporty rumble.

The history file includes only the V5C recording six former keepers to the vendor and current MOT, valid until March 2023 recording no advisories – impressive given the car looks to have been off the road, in storage since its last MOT in April 2014 at 95,510 miles suggesting only 114 miles have been covered in the past 8 years.

The car offers the buyer the chance to get a pre-facelift example that was driven to the sale. It looks and sounds fruity, although the paint is unlikely to win any prizes yet makes an ideal basis for a ‘use and improve’ example.

Buyers please note.  the vendor has a set of original MkIa alloy wheels available by seperate negotiation should the winning bidder wish to buy them.
