Such a beautiful car. I really like the last seat row, where the passengers sit backwards.
It's a shame that older Japanese cars are so uncommon here in Switzerland.

If you have a chance, go an see this car in real life, it looks way better than on the pictures :)

PS: Rontiki, I met you at Reiden, I'm the guy with the '87 Sunny Coupé ;)

I have a few regrets on not biting the bullit on a few Crowns in the past, including a Baby blue Kujira wagon and MS55 sedan. At one point I did have 4 different generations (MS85, MS112, MS122 and MS132) but it's an expensive hobby. Kudos on keeping this one in good nick.

Last sunday I have learned much about the history of my MS63.
The former owner came over to coffee and cake. It was very nice !
He told many cool storys...
he traveled all over europe with the Crown.
italy - sicily - sardinia - corsica,
france - spain - portugal,
england ...
My Crown saw more of Europe than I did.

Image

He owned the Car for more than twenty years after he traded it for something new in the early 2000.
The dealer sold it then to the Swiss Toyota Museum where it stood a few years until I bought it in 2012.

He was very Happy to see "his" Crown in a good Home.
