Kujira! A tidy 1971 Toyota Crown hardtop MS75

October 13, 2012

You may be familiar with the MS60 & MS70 series Toyota Crowns, but the 2 door hardtop is a rare one. The domestic version had twin rectangular lights, while overseas models had quad round lights.

The S60/S70 Series Crown was built from Feb 1971 to Sep 1974. This Crown Hardtop was built in 1971. It has a 1,998cc inline 6 engine.
