used car of the day 1985 toyota celica supra p type

Today's listing might be the shortest we've ever featured.

We don't care, since this 1985 Toyota Celica Supra P-Type looks so good.

All the owner tells us is that the car has 99,000 miles, it has never been driven in the winter and has no rust, and it's been well cared for.

We can also see that the seller is based near Detroit and asks $21,000 for the car.

Beyond that, you'll have to contact the seller yourself.

    Great looking Supra, one of my all time favorites that "got away". In this era, I was driving a 280ZX which I really liked, but was more of a boulevardier than a sporting car. I looked at these Supra's from the '82 introduction but couldn't quite swing the price. Plus, I was sure the next Datsun Z would hit it out of the park. '84 came and Nissan gave us the disco 300ZX, which i disliked intensely. Supra's we're getting harder to find and more expensive as this generation wound down. Then, the howl of a small block Ford with a 4 barrel Holley caught my ear and I was sold. An '85 Mustang GT took the place a Supra should have occupied and that was it. The next gen Supra was, much like the 300ZX, more of a cruiser than the previous generation and more expensive. Several Mustang's and VR6 GTi's later I'm now back to looking for a Supra only to find out they're more expensive after almost 40 years than they were when new!

    I had an 87' I never missed a car so much.

  • Art Vandelay wish They’d do an SS version of the Bolt. We need more electric hot hatches and this is a clean enough design that it would look good
  • ToolGuy Your Jeep is too studly.
  • ToolGuy I had a point to make, but can't remember if it related to Part XXVIIII or Part XXIX.
  • Daveo My dad had an 85 t-bird and I was totally into the digital dash. It was also the first car he had with cruise control and he would complain that it sped up and slowed down going up and down hills.
  • William The Peugeot 308. I got to drive the last gen model on vacation to the SE Netherlands and I wanted to take it home. The new gen looks awesome. I want one bad.
