This 2004 Lexus SC430 goes well beyond its ultra-low mileage to
provide you with like-new coddling luxury at an obtainable price.
This folding hardtop convertible looks nearly new inside and out,
which makes it one of the most unique ways to arrive on the
Lexus had already established its reputation for quality by the
turn of the century. That's how they were able to showcase their
engineering prowess while charging a premium price for this
second-generation SC. It was designed from the start to be a
hardtop convertible, and the inspiration is from nautical themes.
That's why with the top up or down this has a profile of gentile
waves. It has the kind of intricate sheet metal that ages
gracefully. It makes for an even more unique design as this matures
into full classic status... which is also why this one has been
cherished since day one. The original Dark Green Metallic paint
still has a luster that outshines some new cars - that's a
combination of Lexus quality paint practices and careful ownership.
The original alloy wheels are a very unique design that will never
be replicated, so having them in this cut-above condition is a
bonus. In fact, this SC430 has an overall impression that tells us
it could easily be available for survivor car shows a few years
down the road if you continue to keep it at this level of
Deep green on the outside and a saddle tan on the inside is the
kind of timelessly attractive color combo you'd expect to find on a
European car. That's another reason why we know this one will turn
heads for decades to come. But what you'll love today is that this
provides the soothing luxury you expect from the Lexus name. Plus,
since this car is a young classic, it has all the modern comfort
features you could want. It starts with the leather that looks like
this convertible is still in the showroom. So you know no one left
the aluminum folding roof down all day long. That's impressive
because the top can stay down in just about any weather thanks to
features like the heated seats and automatic A/C climate control.
You can even easily hear your music with the top-down thanks to the
rear wind deflector and the AM/FM/CD Mark Levinson premium stereo.
But what is really striking about this interior is all the real
Bird's Eye maple that's on the steering wheel, dash, and center
console. It is even used to cover the DVD navigation system when
not in use. It's a great visual that isn't found in the premium
competitors, and it instantly tells others that this is exclusive
transport. Other premium features include power windows, power
locks, keyless entry, power front seats, and cruise control. There
are also plenty of safety features such as traction control, ABS,
and dual airbags.
Under the hood is packed with its correct 4.3-liter V8 that has
averaged barely over 1k miles annually - yes, this car is that
special. It's a 32-valve, DOHC motor with variable timing, which
means you get the most out of this engine's 300 hp anytime you step
on the gas. But this is a Lexus, and so you know it will be civil.
In fact, this large V8 is borrowed from the LS flagship sedan, and
we all know how quiet its reputation is. Just like the Mercedes SL,
the Lexus SC is a solid luxury machine, but it also has a fun side
on the road. This is thanks to features like the five-speed
automatic transmission, speed-sensitive steering, fully independent
suspension, and four-wheel disc brakes.
Complete with the owner's manual, this Lexus appears to have lived
an easy life and is ready for some sunshine. After all, even with
the top down, there's still room in the trunk for a few weekend
bags. And with all the money you saved on this SC430, you can
afford a few weekend getaways. Call today!!!
