1998 Toyota Chaser Tourer V

Hi Ben,

Picked up the car yesterday - LOVE IT! Still drives like new, love how the boost comes on so early for Chasers. Condition of the paint is very good, I initially thought it was flat white but realized it was actually pearl when I saw it in the sun after a good wash. Just need rims, factory lip and sports grille (all sitting in my garage) and it should be the perfect daily.

Once again thanks so much for all your efforts and help. The guys at Import Factory were great too. One day when I've got the money for it I'm going to look at importing a manual JZX100 so you should hear from me then haha.

The hood and front quarter panels are aluminium to reduce weight, and a carbon fiber rear wing was made optional.
