Gangsta Crown: 1964 Toyopet Crown Deluxe - RS41

April 16, 2016

This 2nd-generation Toyota Crown is too cool for school. The single, round lens tail lights and top-mounted font turn signals tell me this is a Zenki (early) S40-series Crown.

The S40 Series Crown was built from Oct 1962 to Sep 1967. This Crown sedan was built in 1964. It has a 1,897cc inline 4 engine.

How does winning stuff sound?

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>
