Auction House
Chassis no. JT2JA82J7P0003874. Black over tan leather. 2997/320hp twin-turbo, automatic, polished wheels, Michelin Pilot Sport tires, rear wing, power windows, air conditioning, factory cassette stereo.

Evaluation: From the Bryan Frank collection. Represented with 16,435 believable miles. A few minor blemishes in the paint but nothing bad. Clean wheels and tires. Very good interior with minor wear to the leather that matches the age and mileage. Small ding on the exhaust tip. A low-mile, carefully kept and unmodified twin-turbo Supra. A seriously hard car to find, and the only thing keeping it from being a top notch modern collectible is the lack of a third pedal.

Bottom Line: Sold for $89,600 at Bonhams Quail Lodge two years ago and cleaned up a bit since. Its automatic (typically a 15 percent discount), noticeable wear and Sport Roof body style (fixed roof coupes are worth a little more) hold it back a bit, and it was also a $49,500 no-sale on Bring a Trailer last year, then brought $68,200 at Barrett-Jackson’s Fall 2020 auction. Houston 2021 was a complete reversal that defies logic, especially given that more sensible price paid last year. The seller should be grinning from ear to ear.

Condition definitions
Condition #1: Concours
Condition #1 vehicles are the best in the world. The visual image is of the best vehicle, in the right colors, driving onto the lawn at the finest concours. Perfectly clean, the vehicle has been groomed down to the tire treads. Painted and chromed surfaces are mirror-like. Dust and dirt are banned, and materials used are correct and superbly fitted. The one word description for #1 vehicles is “concours.“
Condition #2: Excellent
#2 vehicles could win a local or regional show. They can be former #1 vehicles that have been driven or have aged. Seasoned observers will have to look closely for flaws, but will be able to find some not seen by the general public. The paint, chrome, glass and finishes will all appear as excellent. No excessive smoke will be seen on startup, no unusual noises will emanate from the engine. The vehicle will drive as a new vehicle of its era would. The one word description for #2 vehicles is “excellent.“
Condition #3: Good
#3 vehicles could possess some, but not all of the issues of a #4 vehicle, but they will be balanced by other factors such as a fresh paint job or a new, correct interior where applicable. #3 vehicles drive and run well, but might have some incorrect parts. These vehicles are not used for daily transportation but are ready for a long tour without excuses, and the casual passerby will not find any visual flaws. “Good” is the one word description of a #3 vehicle.
Condition #4: Fair
#4 vehicles are daily drivers, with flaws visible to the naked eye. The chrome might have pitting or scratches, the windshield might be chipped. Paintwork is imperfect, and perhaps the body has a minor dent. Split seams or a cracked dash, where applicable, might be present. No major parts are missing, but the wheels could differ from the originals, or other non- stock additions might be present. A #4 vehicle can also be a deteriorated restoration. “Fair” is the one word that describes a #4 vehicle.
Condition #5: Poor
Running, but battered, incomplete, and perhaps rusty.
Condition #6: Parts car
Parts car.
