1993 Toyota Celsior UCF10
Toyota, and Lexus for that matter, created a timeless luxury design with the UCF10/11 platform. It set a new standard for reliability and new benchmarks for technology, too. This 1993 Celsior is finished in Silver Mist (176) and aside from a few minor scuffs, and dings the body is in good shape. Offered with only 60k verified and documented miles, this V8 luxury barge is fresh off a recent service. Well-appointed, safe, and reliable this world-class Japanese classic would make an incredible turn-key daily driver or weekend cruiser!
The cabin is spacious, full of power equipment, and well cared for. The seats are as comfortable as any vehicle we offer, and come trimmed in a soft gray cloth. They lack any major rips, stains or tears and both front seats are electric. The dash is in good shape and lacks any cracking or distortion. For some extra assurance behind the wheel, an SRS airbag is on standby. The driver benefits from a power telescoping and tilting column, and electric windows, locks, and power-folding side mirrors. These all work as advertised and make for enjoyable daily use. The automatic climate control is simple to use and features piping hot heat and cold A/C for the summer. The OEM audio is directly below and is great to have on hand for some tunes during the commute. The headliner and door cards are in above average shape and the carpets have not sustained any major damage over the past quarter-century. That is not to say this Celsior is perfect and we did want to note that most of the time the tachometer is inoperable. On the positive side the factory owners manual, toolkit, spare key, and mats are included in the sale!
The Celsior boasts an unflappable platform, with few speaks or rattles to note. It is powered by a silky-smooth 1UZ V8 that is fresh off an oil and filter service. The engine idles nearly vibration-free and breathes freely thanks to a new engine air filter. The 4.0L is mated to a slick-shifting automatic gearbox and sends power to the rear wheels, as you'd expect in a luxury saloon. The UCF glides up to highway speeds with ease and is one of the best chassis for sustained interstate driving. The suspension cushions well against bumps large and small, and the steering is so light you can move the wheel with just a finger's grip. The brakes are powerful and stop this sedan down to manageable speeds without breaking a sweat. A set of new all-season tires wraps the factory alloys and will provide grip for tens of thousands of miles to come. They also quiet down the ride noticeably.
