Wow this is a good looking Supra. But as far what you should look for I would say check for any leaks like oil, coolant, etc. Though it looks in great shape just to be sure, check for any rust building up. What else, I guess if you test drive it see if it starts up easily for its an old car and it might need a new starter if it still has its original. See if it idles well, and just ask about previous owners and history of the car and it's maintenance. Just keep us posted

At that age low mileage is more of a 'bragging right' than anything. Seals belts and hoses deteriorate, surface rust exacts its tolls and so on. It's more of a question as to whether it's worth it to you. I know a few people who would gladly pay that but I know more who'd pass on it.
