A rare car in the states no doubt. Wheels look good, nice offset.

Thanks. Much appreciated!

Welcome.

Which colour is that?

Hard to see whether it's white or a light blue/silver?

Looonie 27-03-2015 03:11 AM

Factory silver.

White never came black interior, only available in Silver, Grey and Black over Grey cars.

Silver looks so good, wow

bladsville 31-03-2015 08:01 AM

Yes the car is silver. I think Super Silver II Metallic 166 to be exact.

Thanks for the kind words!

This is the first time I've seen a factory silver z20, rare as hell.

For parts unfortunately with z20's it's difficult, you guys are going to just have to wait until more z20's begin floating around in the states, otherwise pretty much you have to buy parts from Japan as far as Panels and body parts go.

Suspension, Driveline and Engines you can source off your MK3 Supras for the most part, 7m engines are the same give or take a few aspects.

For me so far the only thing I cannot find anywhere is a distributor rotor for my 1G. I think a lot of us here in the US are going to be swapping to a 1/2J series motors instead of repairing the 1G

You can get distributor parts Genuine from Toyota, it's good to keep the old 1g-gte running. But the 1jz-gte is a great motor and great swap, will drive good in a GZ20 but will be lacking top end power due to the diff, then once you swap that it will lack bottom end power.

The 2JZ-GTE will be the best motor for a z20 I'd say to go down that route if you were to do it.

Checked with Toyota America and Japan, no luck on the rotor
