    Anyone know the owner of this Crown?

    Seen at JCCS. I was hoping to ask the owner about the engine swap but never saw anyone near the car...

    very clean Crown! what's that motor? A 4-, 5- or even 7M would have been better in there

    It is a 5M. :lol:


    Just a 5MGE rather than the SOHC 5M.

    aah i c; it seems quite easy to find engines and complete cars on the other side of the pond which are rare as white flies in europe!

    I went to that site and it seems like its a lawn ball tournament site? lol

    They have topics about "having a first heart attack", or "getting hips replaced so had to sell his balls".

    You have to log in to see the "real" site. :wink:

    They don't like "lurkers".

    5MGE is essentially a drop-in with the exception of the brake master on the U.S. cars. Stock brake setup under the hood was already a little strange to begin with since the booster wouldn't fit where it belonged, so they put it remotely on the side. On this installation, he welded together a nice custom intake. Other options would be to get a different booster and master from another toyota by trial and error (later Crown series, Pickups), or others suggest moving it to the clutch side if it's an automatic.

    This is a really nice stock looking Crown that was deserved of the awards it received at the show!
