I guess this chart makes sense. Whenever I do searches on Autotrader or eBay for the 1st gen, the majority of the market is the older end. It's hard to find comparibles of my exterior design (97' to 00'). I do like the older versions with the more rounded front and back. I guess now that prices are going down rapidly for the 1st gen SC, people who grew up in the 90s always wanting to drive them but couldn't afford the $45,000 price tag are getting them now. They're up to $65,000 today! I could afford a new SC430...in about 5 years.

Soarer 400 is right. It should be 97' to 00'. Also, the SC430 didn't premiere until the end of 2001 as a 2002 model.

:whistles: Hi fellas. Outstanding forum by the way!

Ok, need as fast a reply on this as possible.

It is now July 2007. Is a 1996 SC400 with all the options, new tires, new brakes, supposedly great condition with 44k on it worth $14k?

I would greatly appreciate your most rapid feedback on this as the deal is afoot!

Thanx so much!

Own 1995 SC300 with 30,000 original miles. Purchased new in June of 1995 as an anniversary present for wife. We are in our 60's so we may be the oldest people on this forum. Loved the car from the first time I saw it in 1992. Still love it today and the design has stood up well over the 12 years of ownership. On top of that it is a great car - never needing any repairs (only routine maintenance).

Hello I have a 92 sc 300 that I got for 5200 with only 72,000 miles, but now the miles have doubled. I like the car but I don't know if it was worth it because I spent more money trying to fix it to it's normal condition rather then modifying the car to be the way I really want it to be. It really sucks that a car that is worth 45 Gs has electrical and performance problems after 10 years. The Honda accord that I use to have is almost 20 yrs old and other then the given maintenance like oil change, and replacing brake pads. It's still a great running car. To be honest the SC 300 is a really nice car but it's not as hyped as everyone makes it out to be. Don't get me wrong, once I fix everything I'll probably like the car better than I do now, but for a car that is worth that kind of money back then, shouldn't have this much problems. Just wanted to add, if anyone know where I can get a Speedometer cluster and climate control unit for a good price please let me know.

Just got done with some modifications on my 1995 SC300. Its a 5 speed and I take it out for drift and autox sessions. Take a look! :rolleyes:

Here are the mods:

TEIN Flex coilovers

Nardi steering wheel with quick release

19" Volk Racing TE37s

R1 Spec bucket seats

Body kit

Cross drilled rotors

Welded differential

I kept the motor bone stock since where I live is strict when it comes to emission.

I just bought a 1999 SC400 with 34,000 miles!!

Great condition and lovin' the car!

I had a 1993 SC400 which was traded in with 130,000 miles and have been a long-time Lexus owner.

Does anyone out there have extra 6 cd changers they're not using? Part # CRW1342-B

I'm a professional musician and want to set up different playlists with these changers.

Thanks

I have a 1993 SC300 5 speed manual transmission. I've driven it for seven years, after searching all over the west coast (I'm in the SF bay area). Found it in Portland, Oregon flew up and drove it home down the coast. Seven years, 100,000 miles and lotsa love later, life circumstances demand that I sell... :cries: Any suggestions about the best way to sell my Lex?

2000 was the last year that they made the SC400. ;)

Yes! and I wish they would come to their senses and Bring It Back!! What a great model and car! I have not found another car that is as comfortable inside and as luxurious too. The new SC430 doesn't compare. Plus I can fit my golf clubs in the trunk without having to take any clubs out of the bag like I did with the G35 coupe.

I did get a great deal on a 1999 SC400 with 34K miles $19,900 and got it for $18,800.

Love your wheels! How do you like the Volks? Also what kind of body kit is that? How do you like the Tein coilovers?

Thanks, I just inherited an SC400 from my dad.
