Toy­ota Crown/ Cres­sida/ Land­cruiser 1964-2006

Unique Cars - - REVIEW -

Big news in this cat­e­gory is the ex­tra­or­di­nary money be­ing sought (and paid) over­seas for early Land­cruis­ers and how the trend is fil­ter­ing through to Aus­tralia. Forty thou­sand for a re­stored 40 Se­ries is fair it seems for our mar­ket but the world record price for an FJ40 stands at US$137,500. Pas­sen­ger mod­els in­clud­ing the heavy­weight Crown and slightly less lugubri­ous Cres­si­das are mov­ing up­wards, with early 1970s Crowns hit­ting $10,000 and 1980s cars mostly be­low $5000. That money also buys a de­cent 2.8 or 3.0-litre Cres­sida. Later model, low-vol­ume im­port Crowns with turbo-six or V8 en­gines cost around $15,000.
