1995 Toyota Celsior Type-C
Available for: $15,495
The Toyota Celsior is a cut above! They are nearly bulletproof, are incredibly well-equipped, while still affordable to purchase and maintain. This 1995 Toyota Celsior is finished in a stunning Diamond White Pearl (051), and offered with a mere 15k verified and documented miles. The body and paint are in good condition, aside from a few rock chips and scuffs from normal driving over the years, and the subtle OEM rainguards complement the understated aesthetic. Fresh off a recent service, this smooth executive sedan is turn-key ready to rock. Timeless in its design, this UCF21 would make for a killer daily driver or weekend cruiser. No matter how you plan to use it, this clean Celsior is top-tier pick and a certified Japanese Classic
The interior of this Celsior is comfortable and spacious. Toyota has equipped this model with heaps of amenities to ensure all the passengers are comfortable inside. The driver benefits from an electronic tilt and telescoping steering column for optimal comfort, and both the passenger and driver seats are power-adjustable. Although the speedometer and tachometer are intermittently working, a common issue for these, the odometer works and the miles are accurate. The ECU is another weak point of design, and was completely rebuilt and now comes with a lifetime warranty. The dash is clean from any bubbling and cracking, and is equipped with dual SRS airbags up front. The tan cloth seats are comfortable and supportive for long trips, and factory cruise control is on hand too, for those who want to rest their legs. There are no signs of any rips or tears in the seats or door cards, and the headliner and carpets do not have any major blemishes. Even the OEM Celsior floor mats are still on hand, and in good shape no less. The OEM radio works as advertised, aside from the digital screen being on its way out. Inside the glove box, you will find the OEM Toyota CD changer and owner's manuals. A factory rubbish bin is located next to the passenger's feet to help keep the interior tidy, and is rarely found in these, despite being so useful. The automatic dual-zone climate control blows cold A/C, and the heat is ready for the winter to come. The electric windows, locks, and power-folding mirrors work well, and make daily use enjoyable. The trunk is spacious to fit your luggage or golf clubs in the back, with plenty of extra room to spare.
The engine under the bonnet of this UCF21 is the 1UZ-FE V8. Conveniently it was offered here stateside, so parts and service options are readily available. The V8 fires up immediately with a twist of the key, thanks to the new 12v battery installed here at the dealership. The 1UZ was reworked from the first generation V8 sold in the UCF10/11 to provide more power and save some weight. The 4.0L is fresh off an oil and filter change, so no scheduled service will be required for another 3000 miles. During the inspection process, we did completed a few maintenance bits such as new valve cover gaskets and the serpentine belts, so the next new owner will have some additional peace of mind. The OEM skyhook adaptive computerized air suspension rides very comfortably floats over large and small bumps and potholes alike. New sway bar end links give the suspension a bit of a refresh, and this UCF dives like a dream. Brand new Falken tires were installed at each corner ensuring you have all the grip you need, and the new rubber quiets down the road noise a bit. The brakes on this big sedan are confident slowing you to a stop, thanks to the new front rotors. The steering is on point, light and power-assisted, as you'd expect in a luxury sedan.
