1990 Toyota Celsior “Type C”
Available for: $8,495
The introduction of the Toyota Celsior marked a new era for Toyota both in Japan and worldwide. With a highly advanced V8 engine and a slew of options it was clear that Toyota was now a player in the luxury car market across the world. The Japanese models, specifically the "Type C" had even more options that were not even available on it's US counterpart the Lexus LS400. These options included heated, massaging, and reclining rear seats, as well as 2 zone climate control with both audio and climate controls located in the rear seats.
This Type C model Celsior is in great condition and it's hard to believe it has 77k miles. The dark green paint shines nicely with no severe blemishes and looks very vibrant in direct light. The body is in similar condition with no major dents or dings.
Leather interior is present which is more rare than the cloth counter-part. The leather steering wheel and shift lever do have some wear but otherwise the interior is very nice. The dash is free of cracks and the carpet shows no signs of staining. All of the panels are in very good condition with little to no wear. The rear seat controls for the vibrate and recline functions are working as they should.
Mechanically, the car is wonderful. The engine starts and runs perfectly with no known issues while the transmission shifts silky smooth. Records indicate the timing belt was replaced approximately 3,000 miles ago. A recent Shaken sticker (Japanese inspection) indicates the vehicle was roadworthy and driven up until recently. The glovebox contains the factory owner’s manual and some previous maintenance records.
