    My Toyota's.. ae86, ms53 & ms63 crown wagons (Philadelphia)

    Hi there, I just wanted to share my small collection. My ae86 coupe is almost complete and now I'm starting two crown wagons project.

    First is my Ae86 gts coupe that I bought like almost 4 years ago. Spend alot money and time on it. It's basically complete now. Took forever..but here she is.


    Stock-Paid 3500 4 years ago for it. Drove it for barely two months and decided to do a swap.

    At that time f20c swap was the hot thing haha. So I bought a f20c swap with 50k on it. 4500.00



    My friends at northern liberties (rich, will) took the stock 4age out and mounted the f20c in. Using John JSP f20c mounts. (works great)



    Good bye


    The guys put the motor in.


    Car sat for a year . Sent the car to R/T Tuning to finsih the car.

    (Sitting on volk te37 14x7-0 Gunmetal)


    While it sat at R/T Tuning for another year haha. They were busy and booked so I had to wait.

    I started to pile up parts.

    JDM Bumpers




    Eplison southern way 15x10 front and 15x10.5 rears!







    After almost a year later (Two years) The car is almost complete at that shop and ready to go home.





    f20c swap on aem ems uego.



    AIM digit gauge cluster! I love it.


    On Zeal function X coilovers (3200.00)






    After that. I put the car away. I decided to only drive it in the spring and summer only. I went back and forward about selling it but couldnt do it :/. So car has been in the garage alot since i owned it. after a few months i decided to do restoration body work done with a nice paint job. Long story short. First body shop screwed me over. Sat in there for almost a year (barely did anything!) So i decided to take the car out to another shop which did a great job. All the rust was remove and the filled in with new metal. Custom flares, shave some stuff. This restoration costed me a pretty penny but it was worth it!

    This is how it look when it left the first shop -


    Took it to another shop and they found alot of errors. They ended up sanded it down again and doing most of it over again.













    Decided to use smaller wheels. I really didn't want to use overfenders, cut, and deal with rubbing like I did with the 15x10 rims. So I bought a cheap set of 15x9 -10. I want the body to look stock as possible.





    Finally painted!!! I didn't want two tone and wanted the stock silver color.



















    Now, car runs great. Getting the JDM bumpers put on and adding a few other stuff. I'm looking around for a nice set of jdm rims at the moment. Lower the car some more as well


    Enjoy- Tony

    Re: My Toyota's.. ae86, ms53 & ms63 crown wagons (Philadelph

    Next 71 toyota crown wagon ms63 with a 7mgte swap. I bought this car from a member on here. Kind of regret it but whatever...life goes on. Brought the car for 6000.00 paid 1000 to shipped her from California to here in Philadelphia,Pa.

    Looked good from the pictures but it needed a shit load of work. 1 of the bad things was getting the title. Took me months to get the title! Bad part was I had to find the original owner in canada to mail me the title. Took him a bit of time but he went thru with it (thanks). Now I have to go through all this paper work to change a Canadian title to a US title. Hey..better than no title at all.

    Well I almost moved to California but decided to stay instead. Put the car up for sale and without a title I knew I was going to take a lost. But I ended up sticking and calling around for the title and finally decided to stick with my plans to do one of the sicked crown wagons in the east coast. I got this crown last year and finally getting started on it.

    How she look when I got her...









    Underneath looks good













    7mgte runs great now. Retuned and some work done. But I'm still deciding if I want to do a 2jzgte swap. I only want to cruise in this car and think the 7mgte can make more than enough power for my needs. Just need to clean it up with other parts and wire tuck her.





    Interior needs alot of attention.







    My daily driver ap2 (stock)



    After some thoughts. I decided to get body work done first. Stripped the whole car. Everything out, windows, engine, interior.. Everything.































    Currently the car is getting all the rust repair with new metal. The motor and trans is getting removed as well. Looking all over for new seals and weather stripping.

    My plans is to do a airbag setup, nice jdm rims, new luxury interior, and turbo motor. Looking for 350-400 hp only.

    Enjoy- Tony

    Re: My Toyota's.. ae86, ms53 & ms63 crown wagons (Philadelph

    And Last my 68 toyota crown ms63 wagon. Bought it from Jim who lives in nj which isn't far from me. I saw his ad on craigslist and it had to be mine. I didn't knew it was on this forum as well. But I'm very happy with this purchase. Clean title under his name and now under mine. Saw the car and knew I could polish this car up and make the old paint shine again. I did body work and restoration for over a year at a hot rod shop to learn for fun.

    How she looked when I got her.








    I think it sat for a while and needed to be driven around to bring out all the problems.







    Needed a fan clutch. Can't seem to fine one! Radiator had a slow leak. Valve and headgasket leaks and needed to be change. Fuel pump was weak and needed a new one. Needed new hoses and needed to make a new mount for alternator. Pedal was sticky. Fuel tank was dirty. Engine wasn't as smooth. Start up smokes up a bit.

    ALL FIXED. First I did a eletric fan. It didn't work out too well. Then I did a 280z fan clutch conversion. Took the rad out and got it fixed. Fixed the sticky pedal. Changed the head gasket and valve gasket. Added a MSD box and did a tune up. Car runs really smooth now. Took the fuel tank out and clean it out. Change the lines. New fuel pump and alot of other stuff added.









    Took out my buffer, compound, polish, pads, and went to work.











    The interior needs alot of attention as well. It had alot of crap. I decided that if it wasn't stock. Take it out. So I clean whatever I could. Go all the windows to work. Got all the doors to open and close haha.

    I painted the stock wheels black and decided to take off the hubcaps because I lost one while drivng . I don't want to risk losing another one. (looking for a set or one!) Add new tires. New shocks.



    Well. Just making this a beach cruiser for now until my other crown is fully complete.

    Thanks and enjoy. - Tony

    If anyone has any parts that I could use- let me know.

    Nice cars.

    Love the "Kujira" wagon, Is that the same one from California? The one Pertano was selling?

    Man love that the MS63 is getting some much deserved love since it's butchering up north in Canada. I got frustrated with the poor swap and title situation and being misled by the guy I got it from. The car is definatly taking shape though man. That MS53 looks great too. That paint polished up very nice. Keep up the good work on your fleet man. They all look great.
