Actually a Gift! Mint 1969 (Toyota) Toyopet Crown Hardtop Coupe - MS51

December 24, 2016

Did I say 2nd generation Crown? Foolishness. It is of course a pre-update (Zenki) 3rd generation Crown Hardtop which features the Coupe-only rectangular headlights.

The S50 Series Crown was built from 1967 to 1971. This Crown hardtop was built in 1969. It has a 1,988cc inline 6 engine.
