Available for: $9,995

Restyled and reengineered for its second iteration, the Toyota Celsior represents one of the best values among JDM import models. Compared to the US models the Japanese ones came better equipped and cost less than half the price of a similar mileage US LS400. This 1995 UCF21 is finished in Jade Green Metallic (6N9) over rare factory tan leather. The body is in good shape other than some small dings and scratches associated with normal use. Offered with a mere 90K verified miles, this clean luxury saloon is renowned for unprecedented quality, a buttery smooth ride, and its low cost of ownership.
The cabin is filled with high-quality touches and materials. Wood, leather, and soft-touch plastics combine to form a rich feeling cockpit that has aged nicely. Nearly silent inside during operation, tons of power equipment and safety systems were standard in the second generation Celsior. Dual SRS front airbags are standard, although hopefully, they'll never need to be deployed. These include a power tilting and telescoping wheel, along with power windows, locks, and folding mirrors. The laundry list continues with a functional power sunroof and electrically adjustable front seats and seat belt adjusters for premium comfort. The dash is in good shape and no major cracks or holes are to be noted. The A/C blows cold and the climate system is fully digital. The audio system works as well but has limited functionality at this point due to the inoperable touchscreen in the center stack. The seats are incredibly comfortable and would make for the ideal spot to settle in on an all-day road trip. The leather is in good shape and doesn't have any major tears or rips of note. UCF21's have a larger rear seat than the vehicle that preceded it, and a massive rear center console includes two drink holders to match the accommodations upfront. Privacy tint keeps interior temps down further and keeps prying eyes away from people or cargo in the rear. For originality's sake, even the factory owners manual and books are included, located in the sizable dual gloveboxs.
The tried and true drivetrain included in this Celsior is known for its bulletproof reliability and silky operation. Fresh off a revision and power bump, the 3968cc compact 1UZ-FE V8 powers this sedan sending power to the rear wheels. Fresh off an oil and filter service, the engine mates to a silky smooth automatic and propels this four-door up to interstates speeds with ease. The height-adjustable, factory air suspension keeps the occupants insulated from the road, and sorts out all the bumps with confidence. The power steering is light, and the brakes impressive, making for an ideal commuter car or family hauler. Ready for less than ideal condition, the alloy wheels are all wrapped in new all-season rubber. Delivering maximum grip year-round; they should last for years to come.
The Celsior is a Japanese Classic in the purest sense. Built to last, and still impressive to drive, this luxury sedan can be yours today!
