CLASSIC CM: 1972 was a very good year, for Toyota

Toyota Crown 1972 Aussie CM

No matter your stage in life, the 1972 Toyota lineup has a car for you. Heading up to makeout point? You’ll get to first base at least in an E20 Corolla. Looking for a more sophisticated woman? The A20 Celica is your steed. And when all that dating results in offspring, the T80 Corona has you covered. Accompanied by the dulcet tones of Matt Flinders, the monochrome spot feels ominous and somewhat creepy today, as if beneath all that Mad Men sheen there are darker undertones lurking. Or that an axe murderer will simply jump out and off the fornicating teens. Still, kujira Crown!

    Yes a bit sinister in a 70’s horror film, black and white Charles Manson kind of way.

    Who the hell did this ad? George Romero?

    There’s one of those big old Crowns and a 60’s shovel nose Corona sitting in Centre Road wreckers in Clayton. Saw them only last week, also an R32 Skyline, I’ve seen a few R32’s getting crushed lately !

    I actually remember that ad. Filmed around Melbourne, with the Crown at Tullamarine Airport. My dad had the KE20 then, although he had passed 17 and had me by then! He did have a TA22 later, which subsequently became my second car and introduction to modifying!

  5. Just spotted one this morning before work, very rare when you see these cars in California!

    Do you guys do re-features? Because I think this deserves one.
