1995 Crown Majesta VIP
Aspiring VIP enthusiasts and rare parts gurus unite, this is the Toyota you've been searching for. Toyota's Crown is one of the longest-standing nameplates in automotive history. With a reputation for being a spacious, safe, and reliable hauler, it's no wonder the Crown is used worldwide for luxury transport needs. Our 1995 Majesta is an excellent example of the potential of this chassis, sporting a full Artisan Spirits lip kit, and custom Diamond White Pearl over a One-Off Dusty Rose Metallic paint. It's capped off with a showstopping set of 19" Leon Hardiritt Beil alloys that fill up the wheel wells and set off the VIP aesthetic perfectly! The street sweeping stance is achieved via a full custom air suspension setup, allowing you to easily adjust ride height on the fly to protect your precious body panels. With chrome accents throughout and a measly 74k on the clock, it's safe to say this Crown is a perfect turn-key candidate for anyone looking to stand out a bit from your stateside LS400s and Q45s. Reliable, stylish, and unbelievably comfortable, this Crown is the epitome of a true Japanese Classic.
The cabin is clean, spacious, and packed full of wonderful options. It's clear this car was cared for in Japan as evidenced by its current state, as they even included the OEM manuals for its new American owners. The dashboard uses simple, flowing lines and an intuitive layout, even with all the technology at hand. The dash is in good nick aside from two small cracks by the heads-up display. This Majesta even utilizes a sweet-looking floating digital gauge cluster, which is fully functional and was cutting-edge for the time period. The aforementioned heads-up display is a huge help in keeping an eye on the traffic as the speed displays digitally on the windscreen ahead so that you don't have to bury your eyes in the gauges. Dual SRS airbags are there as well, as standard equipment. This model also includes a digital automatic climate control system as standard equipment. The A/C blows cold, and the heat keeps you toasty in colder months. Positioned in the center stack is a fully operational multifunction touch screen. Both factory audio and climate control are integrated into the unit and work without hesitation! Power equipment is everywhere and includes functioning electrical locks, windows, and power-folding mirrors. Uncommon during the time were the dual power front seats and electric steering column found on our Toyota. It even has power adjustable lumbar for those long cruises. A Grip Royal steering wheel complements the exterior styling quite nicely and sits nicely in the palm. Sadly it kicks on the airbag light so it doesn't pass state inspction because of it. Still, with the trade off for the style, the new owner likely won't care. The gray cloth seats are nearly immaculate and lack any major imperfections such as rips, stains, or tears, even the original lace seat covers are present and are a high-value item for those in the know. The headliner and door cards also have been cared for and the carpets only note light staining. The center console is larger than the average Japanese sedan which can also be said about the cavernous trunk. The icing on the cake is the custom diamond stitched floor liners up front, guaranteed to protect your precious factory upholstery underneath!
Under the long sculpted bonnet is a silky smooth and serviceable 2JZ-GE. The 3.0L mill is fresh off an oil and filter service and fires up quickly with a twist of the key. A recently replaced engine air filter works to maximize power and fuel efficiency and won't need to be replaced for quite a while to come. Even better, we've replaced the timing belt, water pump, and cam seals, three key components of standard 2JZ maintenance that the next owner need not worry about for the near and distant future. The VVT-i technology that Toyota advanced later in the decade is actually present on this engine, which was uncommon in '95 for the brand. Torque is sent rearward through a slick-shifting automatic transmission. Acceleration is linear and smooth as it should be and the AirTek suspension rides surprisingly smooth. To support the lowered ride height, FIGS and P2M adjustable upper control arms were installed in the front and rear respectively. Adjustable rear toe and trailing arms also help dial in that showstopping stance. Controlling it all is Airlift 3P management. With a controller conveniently tucked away in the interior, you'll be able to drop the body to the floor for any impromptu parking lot photoshoots. The long wheelbase makes it feel especially stable at speeds and this sedan eats up miles on the highway. The brakes feel confident and the power steering is light and easy to articulate. The 3 piece LH alloys are all wrapped in new rubber at all four corners, and we've even performed a fresh custom alignment to ensure you're making the most of the aftermarket suspension setup!
