If you're looking for a well-preserved older car, you know that Japanese cars are especially hard to find in nice shape -- largely because most people buy them to drive, and especially drive long distances, due to their reputation for reliability. But some get preserved -- and today I'm looking at five well-preserved older Lexus models currently listed for sale on Autotrader.

2000 Lexus GS 300

2000 Lexus GS 300 - 35,900 Miles

The GS 300 is a mid- to large-sized sedan that boasts rear-wheel drive (RWD) -- and back in 2000, it also used Toyota's well-known inline 6-cylinder engine, which touts excellent reliability and durability. Many GS 300 models were modified or heavily used, but not this one, which has just 35,900 miles. It's offered by 3M Auto Group in Elizabeth, New Jersey, for $8,985. Find a Lexus GS for sale

2000 Lexus LS 400

2000 Lexus LS 400 - 71,000 Miles

Although this is the highest-mileage vehicle on this list, it's also tremendously well-preserved for a 2000 car. It's an LS 400, the flagship Lexus luxury sedan, and it's in great shape, finished in black with a black interior that shows little wear. This era of LS 400 was a fabulous vehicle, and this particular example is one of the nicer ones left -- and it shows. It's offered by a private seller in the Baltimore area for $8,500. Find a Lexus LS for sale

1999 Lexus LX470

1999 Lexus LX470 - 52,000 Miles

If you've ever searched for an LX 470 of this era -- or for its twin, the Toyota Land Cruiser -- you know how hard it is to find a nice one. This 1999 model is amazing, as it's traveled just 52,000 miles from new -- almost inconceivable, as virtually all of these are well over 100,000 miles by now. This LX 470 is in great shape, and it's priced appropriately, given the difficulty of finding one in this condition: It's offered by a private seller in Pennsylvania for $28,500. Find a Lexus LX for sale

1999 Lexus RX300

1999 Lexus RX300 - 58,300 Miles

It's especially uncommon to see an ultra-low mileage RX 300 crossover, since so many people bought them for family duty -- which usually requires high miles. But this RX 300 is a 1999 model with just 58,300 miles, and it's very well-preserved, with a shockingly nice interior that still looks like new. It's finished in black with a tan interior, and it's offered by Thunder Auto Sales in Sacramento, California, for $6,999. Find a Lexus RX for sale

1999 Lexus SC300 - 47,300 Miles

1999 Lexus SC300 - 47,300 Miles

The Lexus SC 300 (and the larger-engined SC 400) was an RWD sporty coupe made by Lexus from 1992 to 2000. This hails from one of the final model years, and it's in fantastic shape, as it's driven just 47,300 miles from new. Finished in black with a beige interior, this one is really in amazing condition -- and it's finished in black with chrome wheels, gold badging and little wear. It's offered by Lexus Santa Monica in Los Angeles for $12,888. Find a Lexus SC for sale
