This classic 1973 Toyota Sprinter Trueno TE27 coupe was inspected for a client at USS Tokyo auction on 27 August 2015.
Total kms were unknown which is often the case with older classic vehicles. Past repair history, and repaint. Visible rust in places and painted black underneath to cover other rust making it hard to evaluate at auction.
It sold for 1,645,000 YEN FOB, total price in Australia at the time would have been approx. $23,200 landed plus $1,000 to $1,200 compliance allowance, plus tyres if required, and ORC’s (calculated at a rate of 91 yen to the dollar).
We only source and import the best vehicles with clean and tidy interiors, and only vehicles we would be pleased to own ourselves. This is why we are constantly told by clients that the vehicles we source are well above the condition of most others on the local market.
Whether you want to import a Toyota Sprinter Trueno TE27 coupe like this, or another year, make or model, we can find it for you in nice condition.
The pictures are typical of the information we provide prior to auction for each vehicle of interest, with any faults shown so you can clearly see the condition before we discuss whether to bid, and your budget.
It is vital when sourcing your vehicle to use an agent that takes the time to physically check each vehicle and looks beyond the auction pictures and report to confirm condition. Some vehicles may have an unpleasant smoke or other odour, rust underneath, or other faults which are impossible to know without inspection.
