    1970 Toyota Crown MS55 (Update: Re-Assembly has begun!!!)

    Some of you may have seen my introductory thread but I figured I should start separate threads for my projects so here is my 1970 Toyota Crown MS55. She runs and drives great, goes down the road smoothly. She has 105k and I am the third owner. Here are so pics for now and I will update as I progress with the car.

    I am loving this car man! Those bumper guards are really cool, i wonder what a set would run me now-a-days! Have fun with the car, they are really satisfying to drive around in, i love the view out the back window when your cruising in a MS55. Stuff isn't to easy to find, so if you find a somewhere to get some nos stuff or whatever let me know, i'll do the same for you.

    Dang I need to remember that other people might have different tastes, as I thought they were an abomination. I pulled them off and threw them in the trash thinking nobody would want them. They definitely weren't stock or a Toyota part because of the horrible drilling job somebody did to mount them on the car. So I apologize for tossing them fellas, please forgive me.

    But yeah as Crown owners we need to keep an eye out on parts for one another. A couple things I need are a fender badge and the chrome trim on the trunk above the tail lights. Maybe we should start a Crown parts wanted/fore sale/trade thread.

    FYI, there's a yard over in Yakima that lists a trunk lid in their inventory. It may, or may not have the trim you're looking for.

    To be honest i didn't really love them, i just get a kick out of any dealer option, which these appartly where not. They may have been a datsun truck parts, i've seen them on pl521 that look very similar. Keep up the good work man.
