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.

I've set myself an ambitious target, and that is to unearth all of Japan's rusting, nostalgic gems. It's not going to be easy. They're shy creatures and prefer to remain hidden. And, limited time and funds mean they're likely to stay that way, which would be not cool! <More>
