The Japanese know their cars, and they certainly know that they’ve manufactured some great cars. Every manufacturer has it’s own flagship and for Toyota that was the Crown. Originally designed as a taxi, the car had way more potential than serving as taxi-only model and Toyota realized that. It became the high-end flagship of Toyota, which was still called Toyopet at that time, and is Toyota’s oldest sedan still in production. Recently, there was a big Crown meeting in Japan and of course we’ve got a nice gallery for you!
At Gearbox Magazine, we just love old Japanese classics. When we heard that there was a big Crown meeting in Japan, we just knew we had to make sure we had some pictures to show.
Thanks to Goshu of Crown Classics for letting us use these pictures. A Japanese company specialized in Toyota Crowns. They pretty much do everything themselves. Repainting, rebuilding engines and complete restorations. It’s good to see that the Japanese take car of their automotive heritage! Every picture on this page is available in high-res upon request. Simply contact us and ask!
