1992 Toyota Crown Royal Saloon VIP
This 1992 Toyota Crown Royal Saloon is a VIP show stopper. Instead of spending thousands on a build, why not a great turn key option? While you can find Cimas, Celsiors, and Aristos here is the US, this platform is more exclusive.
Visually, this Toyota has serious impact. The Junction Produce bodywork manages to give the car a lower, wider, presence. The fitment of these high quality pieces are topnotch, forming even body lines and tight fitting seams. The paint and clear coat show well, the Dark Green Metallic (6K2) paint retains plenty of luster and depth. Besides a half inch long scratch on the hood no major blemishes, dents, or scratches are apparent. For a custom two tone look the roof has been finished in back, along with a small roof spoiler adorning its rear edge. A Junction Produce cowl cover rests on the hood before the windshield, a level of detail lost on most. Rear occupants benefit from dark privacy tint, obscuring them from prying eyes and UV rays. Shod with 19" M'z SPEED wheels, deep in tire tread, the large polished lips match several subtle chrome accents around the body, such as polished door handles, windshield nozzles, and bright work.
Lowered on a set of sport springs, fender gap is non existent. Despite the dropped ride height, and low profile running gear, ride quality is firm without being harsh. The steering system is more direct than you might expect, and the suspension has been freshened with new tie rods. A brand new battery has also been installed to ensure a smooth, effortless startup every time. The naturally aspirated 1JZ-GE idles well, and moves this large sedan with ease. At only 77K verified miles, the straight six has tons of life left in it. One of the nicest attributes of this engine is how well balanced it is and little vibration it produces. A dual tip, upgraded exhaust adds to the aural experience. The straight six has a throatier, more noticeable tone, without being overly aggressive and droning on long cruises. The automatic transmission, a 4 speed, shifts smoothly; no clunking or slack within the drive line can be felt. At city speed or on long highway cruises, the platform inspires confidence.
The interior appears to have been well taken care of, and is very clean. The seats, trimmed in a gray executive cloth, are well bolstered and soft. The door panels and carpets show only light wear, and are in excellent condition. The dashboard is flawless, lacking any cracks, divots, or bubbles. The carpet and headliner are free of noticeable stains or tears. The Crown Royal featured a dedicated rear climate system, which is fully functional on our sedan. It's not often you come across a turn key show car, let alone a chassis that you'll never find at the local meet. The Crown is king for a reason.
