1995 Toyota Chaser Tourer V JZX90


JZX90 Series 1JZ-GTE twin turbo factory 5 speed manual with a limited slip differential, and it’s completely stock. Imported to the US from Japan last year, this unbelievably clean Chaser Tourer V is right as it came off the assembly line, literally completely unmodified. Rocking only ~83k miles (135k km), this car is fresh and ready to roll.

Never sold outside Japan, the Chaser shares a chassis with two other vehicles, the Toyota Mark II and the Toyota Cresta. The Chaser is the sportiest of the 3, and most ended their lives as drift cars or donor cars for other builds, especially the Tourer V trim. The 2.5L inline six twin turbo is rated at 276 hp at 6,200 rpm (which was the agreed on maximum limit in Japan in 1995), and 278 lb-ft of torque at only 2,400 rpm. 276 hp may not sound like a lot by today’s standards, but there is strong reason to believe that these cars were under-rated from the factory to meet the agreement. Other cars that had to stay under this limit include the R32, R33 and R34 Nissan GTR and the Toyota Supra. Japanese automakers would continue to say their cars only made 276 hp well into the 2000’s with the likes of the FD RX-7, Nissan 300zx TT, and Honda NSX all clearly making well over 300. Anyway, enough history, let’s just say the car makes “276 hp”.

Clearly looked after in Japan, this car presents extremely well, with only minor wear showing in the paint and interior pieces. The dash is uncracked, the original factory stereo plays both CDs and tape, seats are extremely comfortable with only the driver’s side bolster being slightly less supportive than it may once have been. Factory floor mats labeled “Chaser” are all present, original factory shift knob shows some wear, but only if you look closely, and finally, the A/C blows very cold.

The only issue identified is a weak solenoid in the automatic door lock for the rear driver’s side door. I didn’t notice this for over a month of driving, due to rarely using the back seats. You have to lock and unlock just this door manually. All other doors behave normally. If time allows, I will replace the solenoid and adjust the price accordingly.

As I stated before, most of these cars are gone now, even in Japan. This may be the last completely stock one I ever see, and I am reluctant to let it go. But it’s time for it to go to a collector or somebody looking for a daily driver that is comfortable, quick, and uncompromising. If you really want to, I suppose you could modify it and make this scary fast. The 1JZ-GTE is known to make over 500 hp with only supporting modifications, and the R154 transmission is capable of that and more. That said, this is truly one of the few remaining examples of a stock JZX90 in the world, and it should probably be treated as such, but I won’t judge!

This car is located in Sarasota, FL with a clean Florida title, text or call to set up a showing. Limerence Motor Co. is a licensed Florida dealer.
