Original Gangster: 1969 Toyota Crown

The 3rd generation Toyota Crown (S50) was built from 1967 to 1971 as the
premium full sized offering from Toyota.  It was powered by R-series
inline-4 or M-series inline-6 engines and offers lethargic performance
with cool JDM looks…but who needs to go fast when you can look good sitting still? Find this 1969 Toyota Crown offered for $6,500 in Portland, OR via craigslist.  Tip from FuelTruck.

This Crown is offered with a claimed 78,000 original miles and an original interior, original trunk liner…this thing is really well preserved for an almost 50 year old classic.

Use it to cruise to the donut shop on Saturday morning, or live out your Yakuza fantasies. As a way into the world of vintage “J-tin,” an early Crown is a stylish and affordable choice. If you’re anywhere near LA, the car could even earn its keep by being rented out to film / TV crews or photo shoots.
