Daily Driven, Old-School JDM: 1968 Toyota Crown Pickup (RS56)
May 05, 2018
Spotted this fantastic zenki, S50-series Crown ute last weekend at a Kumamoto classic car event. I was instantly drawn to its faded patina, and inspired wheel selection.
The S50 Series Crown was built from 1967 to 1971. This Crown pickup was built in 1968. It has a 1,994cc inline 4 engine.
