Up for auction is my sister-in-laws 1998 Lexus SC400 Luxury Sports Coupe. It is a 3rd owner car that my sister-in-law has owned since 2004. It is a non-smoker car, regularly maintained by a local Lexus mechanic and has 155,052 miles. These Toyota's are good for around 250k - 300k miles before you would expect any major repair so you could expect about another 100k miles of good driving. There is a site that shows all the options on this car via the VIN number. eBay won't let me display the link here but if you go to ClubLexus web site and enter the vin, it will show you about 5 pages of options that come with the car, there are too many to list here.
The exterior color is Royal Sapphire Pearl, similar to Cobalt Blue, and interior is Ivory. The body is very straight and interior is very clean. This is a leased vehicle out of Cincinnati, OH for 3 years, then sold at auction to the 2nd owner who had a right side collision in 2002 to the passenger door. It was replaced, painted, and matches very well as you can see by the pictures. Some of the options include:
  • Upgraded Nakamichi Sound System AM/FM/ 12 DISC CD Changer
  • 5 spd Automatic Transmission
  • Tilt/Telescopic Steering Wheel
  • Moon Roof
  • 6 way power leather seats - passenger & driver
  • Full size spare tire: Goodyear Eagle GT+4, 225/55R16 with complete jack, tool kit, and Lexus first aid kit in the trunk
  • 4-Wheel independent suspension
  • 16mpg / 25 mpg on the road
  • Rear spoiler
It also comes with the original owners manual in a leather case which explains how to use all the options on this car.
Cons: See pics
  • Drivers mirror housing is cracked, it hit the garage door opening several months ago, but the mirror still works
  • A couple of small dents in the right fencer, next to the headlight
  • Several rock chips, painted over, around the car
  • Lower spoiler in front has several rock chips from the road, along with bugs
  • Rear spoiler LED lights are out
  • Has a small rip started in the drivers seat, rear seats are perfect
Other than that, everything works well. I encourage you to check out the link I have furnished to see all the options on this car, it has many.Any questions, please ask before bidding. I have a low reserve compared to the NADA clean retail price of $7900. Buyer is responsible for pickup and/or shipping but I will help out the carrier with shipping.This car has a clear Kentucky Title.Thanks for looking and good luck.
