Toyota Sunchaser

The Toyota Sunchaser was built by The Griffith Company in Jacksonville, Florida and Santa Ana, California from the years 1979 to 1981. The company's headquarters were located in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

It is estimated only that 3,000 Sunchaserís were manufactured.

The example I am offering is probably the nicest and most original
Sunchaser in existence.

The odometer shows about 68,000 miles and I believe the miles are actual.

A Florida car from day one. Here is the cars history as I understand it.

Purchased new on 7/8/81 at Oakland Toyota in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

27 years later in December 2007 the original owner sold it to her auto mechanic.
At the time it had a blown head gasket, the mechanic repaired the engine including a complete valve job.

Recently when the mechanic told me he wanted to sell it, I made an offer and now own one of the most unique Toyotas in South Florida.
