This is a great find having covered just 18500 miles from new. This UK supplied Toyota MR2 2.0 GT has had just two owners from new, the last owner, an elderly gentleman in Malton since 1993. The supplying dealership was Motorline in Canterbury and the original stock ticket confirming the cars factory details including the colour of 3J6 Super Red III is still with the car along with its original unused tool kit, MOT's back to 1992, old tax discs, spare key and all original service books and pack. There is even a couple of note books recording early mileage and fuel logs, along with the fuel receipts.
The service records confirms supplying dealer Motorline PDI checked the car at 9 miles and it's first owner, based in Essex had the MR2 serviced at 900 and 6692 miles. On the 22nd November 1993, the long term second owner then living in Essex himself, bought the Toyota from Boardworth Motor Company Ltd and they stamped the service book at 10802 miles. In 1994 the MR2 was used regularly and was serviced again in Chelmsford at 12247 miles.
The cars long term second owner moved to Malton and since 1996 it has been maintained and MOT tested by one local garage. Services have been recorded and stamped in the book at 14680 and 18318 miles and the garage have MOT tested and checked the car over every year. The MR2 has been garaged and only covered a few miles per year, not covering much more than its mileage to MOT and back in the most recent years. MOT certificates with the car record mileages at 10799 (1992) 11631, 12729, 13586, 14675, 15668, 16015, 16595, 16738, 16768, 17012, 17182, 17429, 17792, 18056, 18070, 18167, 18189, 18289, 18293, 18313, 18318, 18335, 18372, 18385 and 18390 in January 2019.
This Toyota MR2 is a true time warp and it drives as you would expect a brand new MR2 to drive. It's tight, handles superbly and the engine and gearbox are both completely first class as you would expect with just 18500 miles. The car is original, totally standard, it has never required any major work in its whole life and has never even required a re-paint which is remarkable considering the car is 29 years old. The car presents superbly, the paintwork has beautifully aged, the car has never required welding work, the body is totally original and the interior presents like an almost new car. The engine bay is again totally original and has just required a good clean. The MR2 has been covering such minimal mileage over the recent years and must be one of the lowest mileage, and most original examples left in existence. This is a true collectors piece and MK2 MR2 prices have only recently began to increase so it will no doubt prove an excellent long term purchase for a collector or enthusiast. This is an unrepeatable opportunity, rare finds like this are hard to come by.
