You can get Lexus quality and luxury in a hardtop convertible that's all for less than even the price of a new economy ragtop. But this 2002 Lexus SC430 is more than just buying into upper class for less money; it's also that kind of reward you promised yourself now at finally an obtainable price.

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. This 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 sheetmetal that ages nicely and will certainly be a cherished classic one day. The original Dark Purple 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 status a few years down the road if you continue to keep it at this level of quality.

Inside is the soothing luxury you expect from the Lexus name, and since this is car is a young classic, it has all the modern comfort features you could want. It starts with the cream-colored 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 climate control. You can even easily hear your tunes over the wind thanks to the nine-speaker AM/FM/CD Mark Levinson premium stereo. But what is really striking about this interior is the all the real Bird's Eye maple that's on steering wheel, dash, and center console. 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 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 factory original 4.3-liter V8. This is 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 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.

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. That said, this car does have an odometer discrepancy on the Autocheck and we believe it DOES NOT have 59,236 actual miles. Please inquire for more details. Call today!!!
