When it comes to perfectly-preserved cars to get excited about, the Lexus SC 300 is among the more interesting. This was a rear-wheel drive Lexus coupe made in the 1990s that used the same 3.0-liter 6-cylinder engine as the Toyota Supra -- meaning it's ready for serious power from a relatively staid, conservative style.

This SC 300 is better-preserved than just about any example in existence, as it looks completely original with just 59,000 miles. Unfortunately, it's an automatic. That's no surprise, as most of these were automatics -- but we could dream, couldn't we? Still, despite the transmission, this thing is a sight to behold, wearing the original 15-inch alloy wheels, featuring that tealish blue-gray color, and touting that perfectly preserved center control stack without a screen in sight.

According to the Carfax report, this SC 300 -- which hails from the car's first model year, 1992 -- was sold new in the Seattle suburbs and owned by the original owner for at least 16 years. The second owner had it for the next nine years, and now it's come up for sale with the odometer reading precisely 59,911 miles.

It's currently offered by Ford of Kirkland in the Seattle suburb of Kirkland, Washington, for just $9,790 -- a pretty good deal for a pristine example of one of the original Lexus models. This could be a true collector's item one day. Or, you could modify it with Supra parts and create one of the best sleeper cars in existence.
