TOYOTA CROWN 2300 DE LUXE

4-door 5-seater saloon/estate car.

As described by others: 'well-equipped, if undistinguished' big saloon, 15ft 4ins long, but with a 115bhp 'six', a 100mph top speed, and a well-equipped though quite Americanised interior. Four headlamps for easy recognition, but there's only wishbone front and live axle rear suspension, and quite a few had Toyoglide (honest!) automatic transmission. Could you live with 18mpg, and styling slightly reminiscent of contemporary big Vauxhalls or Holdens? IF so, you might enjoy the power-assisted discs and expansive style.
