I am selling my 2001 Toyota MR2 Spyder with a 5-speed manual and clean title in hand.

I purchased this car in 2019 with the goal of turning it into a track car. However, life happens, priorities change, and sadly I have to let it go. This car is a joy to drive and there really is no other car that combines Toyota reliability with a mid-engine rear-wheel-drive layout in this price range.

During my 2-year ownership, I have only put on ~1500 miles as it is my 3rd car. The rest of the time it has been garage-kept. I was very meticulous about maintenance so I am confident in saying this car is mechanically sound, completely reliable, and as such I would not hesitate to take this car on a road trip anywhere. Below is a list of recent maintenance I took care of during my ownership (@124k miles).

All fluids changed: engine oil, oil filter, transmission oil/diff fluid, coolant, power-steering fluid, brake/clutch fluids
Electrical tune-up: new battery, new alternator, new belt tensioner + belt, new spark plugs
Mechanical tune-up: new fuel filter, new valve cover gasket, all four brake pads and rotors, new rear calipers, new PCV valve and vacuum hoses

Other highlights:
Heathy engine (165-175 psi across all 4 cylinders)
No Check Engine Lights (or any malfunction indicator lights for that matter)
Newer tires (date code 2018 with plenty of tread)
New brakes and rotors
OEM-style rear spoiler

Cons:
Rough exterior (paint chipping/fading, dings on some body panels, holes in soft top (patched with no leaking))
AC not working
Parking brake does not work (I park the car in gear)
Rust underneath
Steering wheel off-center (alignment will fix that)

Upgrades:
MWR cold air intake (stock box included)
MWR headers (no pre-cat worries, stock headers included)
MWR cat pipe/downpipe
MWR shifter bushings
Underbody brace
Aluminum shift knob

The car will come with 1 key + fob, stock parts mentioned above, MR2 Spyder BGB (repair manual), and a clean Carfax vehicle history report.

I am asking $6000 for the car or best reasonable offer! I am in no rush to sell. Please text with any questions and I will respond as quickly as I can.
