View Full Version : Late model Supercharged Mark 1 MR2 - SOLD -

1st October 2010, 07:23 PM
Late model Supercharged Mark 1 MR2

89,700 miles – (144500 km)

Mica Blue late model T Bar supercharger; one of the last mk1's made. This model is G-Limited.

Taxed to 31st October 2010

MOT until March 2011

Toad alarm and immoblizer fitted

Very full service/ parts history and just fully serviced in March 2010

Also just before I purchased the car (January 2008), it had a big service at Mac1 Motorsport with new oilpan, oil filter, oil, air filter, gearbox oil, brake fluid.

The car has never been in any accidents and is HIP clear. (I carried out a check before I purchased the car)

Bought by me in January 2008 which seemed excellent value for a very tidy late reg. JDM genuine supercharger – not a conversion with a transplanted engine. Therefore comes with full climate control air conditioning (works perfectly), electric folding wing mirrors and correct rear panel, sc vented boot lid and a third brake light in the spoiler

The key to my purchasing the car was that the bodywork/ chassis were spot on with the car having been professionally undersealed at over £300, so no rust issues as under body/ floor pan, arches and sills are in great condition.

The car has had thousands spend, the previous owner spent well over £3000 on brand new suspension – 4 x Koni dampers and 30% up-rated springs, High and Tight anti-roll bars front and rear, adjustable drop links and camber bolts, full set of polybushes + brakes refreshed and Goodrich braided lines fitted and new pads. All professionally fitted and set up by Mac1 Motorsport. Suspension therefore effectively now as a new car – or better . .

Sparco suede steering wheel (original is still with car)

4 x Team Dynamics very lightweight 15” x 7” alloy wheels with Yokohama Parada spec 2 tyres (lots of life left in them). The alloys do not have any curb marks and are like new.

Car also comes with original space saver spare tyre, mk1 tool kit and T Bar covers.
T-bar model and is on a personalised plate: A19 GUB

I have spend a lot of money and time on the car, recently got a new Exedy clutch and a replacement gearbox which has LSD fitted (the old gearbox didn’t have LSD) According to Tony from Fensport (were the gearbox was originally purchased from) said "it is a torque bias type. There will be a little slip on one wheel before the diff locks to drive both wheels. This is the better LSD for normal road use as it is not too aggressive."

When the clutch was changed I got the larger pulley installed with a heavy duty Toyota Camry idler, a boost gauge has also been fitted. The car now has more power, reads between 11-12psi.

I purchased mirrored t-tops which look great on a dark car (Not Included). I have also replaced the carpet with one that looks brand new.

The car has also had a full re-spray a year ago, I also fitted a aftermarket front bumper lip. Not to extreme I think..

I also got a Rear Strut Bar fitted, I changed the rear brake pads and disk two months ago.

New t-bar seals, screws and clips have been fitted, does not leak as much as before, only a few drops on jet wash. I have not replaced the small plastic guides. I recommend new owner to get these. Hopefully this will make it 100percent water tight.

New exhaust bracket added

fitted new rubber trims to the side skirts

The front lights need adjusting.

The speedo reads in Kh and I do have a spare clock the convert to miles. I will let the new owner decide if they want it changing over or not..

The car has been well looked after and has been my pride and joy over the few years of ownership. Don’t really want to sell but personal circumstances forces this reluctant sale.

The drop links are on the way out, could do with replacing even though I replaced them less than 1000 miles ago. :evil:

The back boot screws/clips are missing. Driver side interior handle cover has a crack; a few other screws are missing but not a big deal as parts a available on here or ebay.

This is a simply awesome-looking car, I can't imagine it will be around for long!

Can I suggest you put your location in your profile though - that way potential buyers will know where the car is based :+:

3rd October 2010, 06:07 PM
Thanks guys, love the car to bits and only just got it looking right... :cry:

Location added (thanks),

I have managed to find images when the car was undersealed a few years back, 2007 i think.

Enjoy :)
