Classic Car Auctions says:

The first generation Lexus GS 300 Sport was never built at the factory; it was actually converted at supplying dealers across the UK in very small numbers which consequently makes this a rare car. Based on the standard GS 300 Saloon, the 'Sport' package was very subtle in appearance, consisting of a boot rear spoiler, mesh front grille, 'Sport' decals to the rear quarter lights, lowered suspension, and 'Sport' alloy wheels with the option of larger, staggered 10'' rear alloys, as fitted to this car.

P633 FEJ was actually supplied new by Cutlers of Streetly Ltd, Sutton Coldfield, on the 12th of August 1986. The vendor informs us that the car drives without fault, the engine, gearbox and differential all work perfectly, as do the brakes. The only non-standard item has been the addition of a custom exhaust.

The Metallic Silver bodywork is very straight, with deep glossy paintwork and good shut lines. There is some stone chipping to the front bumper and bonnet, and there is a scratch on the OSR quarter about 10cm long, however  that's about all and the car is reported to be as good underneath as it is on top.

The vendor informs us of a service bill of £2,200 in 2014, and the car has a current MoT until November of this year. With the car is the original Lexus dealer hand pack, which includes all handbooks, service book, previous MoTs, VOSA MOT report, HPI Certificate and even the original sales brochure.
