This Ruby Red MKIV Supra came to us all the way from the beautiful Florida Keys. What started as a small laundry list of problems to troubleshoot minor issues and quirks from old age, quickly blossomed into the complete street supra refresh you see here.
The vehicle will primarily be used as a streetcar. The engine and turbo were setup with this in mind. We coupled one of our 3.5L Stroker shortblocks, a Stage 3 Head with Ferrea Valvetrain and TMS 272 cams. A Precision 67-66 turbo provided reliable horsepower with quick spool to combat day to day traffic, while maximizing the power band during spirited driving.
The car arrived with a maroon paintjob that was done sometime early in the cars life. We stripped the car down to it’s bare shell and had the car re-sprayed in a custom mixed Ruby Pearl designed to pay homage to the original vehicle color. This gave it a nice bespoke touch. With the exterior complete, the interior got a fresh set of reclinable bucket seats refinished in custom black napa leather with red stitching to match the exterior. The rest of the interior was wrapped in the same black napa leather and a dead stock TRD wheel was located and installed.
This being a full streetcar the suspension and brakes were also addressed with the addition of color matching StopTech Big Brake Kit front and rears, as well as a set of KW V3 Coilovers. A set of 19” Forgeline RB3C in a combination of Satin and Gloss bronze wrapped in Michelin Pilot Supersports makes the most out of the suspension, brake and power upgrades by firmly keeping the car planted to the road.
