My Friend's Ride: 1974 Toyota Crown Custom Station Wagon (MS62)

May 05, 2014

This is actually a friend's car and one I've been wanting to do a feature on for quite some time. What it is, is a 1974 MS62, and it's super cool! The engine is a 2,000 cc engine and it has a column-shift, 3-speed manual.

The S60/S70 Series Crown was built from Feb 1971 to Sep 1974. This Crown Stationwagon was built in 1974. It has a 1,988cc inline 6 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>
