    My 1980 Toyota Cressida

    The look for my one and only car is over, I've been looking for a 1st Generation Cressida since I got into J-tins. When one would popped up it would either be to far away or out of my price. Well this week two MX63s magically appear on craigslist both were on 4 hours away and both were in good condition. I picked this baby up yesterday, I got off work at 4:30, picked up a U-haul and drove to Danville, VA. After dropping the U-haul off, I fell into bed at 4:00am this morning but it was worth it.

    Its a 1980 Toyota Cressida with 144K on the clock, its all original including the A-Trac Player. The interior is in really good condition except for the rear seats head rest. The body does has some rust around the rear window where the fabric is. The engines runs great but it has a surging idle and the brakes need to be bled badly. Plans right now is to just get it running right and resolve the rust problem.

    Nice pickup. How much did you get it for if you don't mind me asking?

    careful, those vinyl tops can cover up a lot of rust that they cause by holding onto moisture over the years. be prepared to deal with that. don't think that was a factory option, any info on it? perhaps a coachbuilder's plaque or info somewhere in/on the car? second one i've seen with a terrible vinyl roof conversion.

    you should also ditch those window visors. i'd be happy to take them off your hands.

    keep that 8 track, you can get some neat tapes for it if you look hard enough.

    Funny you said something about those visors, I was about post them up for sale as soon I figure out how to take them off. You got first dibs.

    I started tearing down the vinyl top yesterday and ran into rust. The worst spot is were it starts at the trunk.
