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.

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>
