One owner since new, this time warp Supra is full of 80s wedged goodness

In the early 80s, Toyota gave the Celica lineup a radical redesign and brought with it the second-generation Celica-badged Supra.

While the MkII Supra was largely underpinned by the ever-successful Celica, it was distinguished by a whole new front end with pop-up headlights, and gained Toyota’s 2.8lt "M" Series six-cylinder engine while the Celica carried on with its smaller four-pot.

In its native homeland of Japan, the Celica lineup consisted of two distinct flavours. Buyers could opt for the L-Type or the P-Type, denoting luxury and performance orientations respectively.

Australian-delivered cars were delivered in a single unique spec, a blend of both.

Visually, it gained the P-types sporting design cues, with wider 14x7" wheels and the enlarged fender flares, as well as an LSD out back and eight-way adjustable sports seats and a digital dash in the cabin.

This Toyota MkII MA61 Supra was delivered new to Emptor Toyota in Springvale Melbourne, on November 28 1983, and has been with the same owner ever since.

Originally it was bought as a company car, and was subsequently serviced and maintained religiously with every refuel recorded with dates, distance and litres-filled all the way up to August 1991.

It’s clearly been a well-loved car and presents virtually as new with all original components in place, along with further factory options including cruise control, electric sunroof and Nippon Denso air conditioning.

The car comes with a lifetime of documentation, and while it’s covered a touch over 200,000kms in its 35 years on the road, it certainly doesn’t look it!

The car is available via The Healey Factory in Melbourne, and is on offer for $25,000.

That might be a lot for a MkII Supra to some people, but you'd be hard-pressed to find another car that's been this well-kept for its entire life. And that's hard to put a price on.
