With low kilometres and stacks of factory options, this JZS155 Crown is rarer than you'd think.

They only built 3,203 examples in '2EA' blue-over-grey two tone.

It’s obvious where Toyota looked for inspiration when it envisioned, engineered and created its 150-series Toyota Crown.

If you squint, you’ll see some Mercedes-Benz W124 about its front end. The Toyota Crown has been Japan’s default luxury car choice since the ’70s; but after looking to America for inspiration during those times, it later turned to Europe.

It targeted the Germans in terms of ride quality and noise/vibration suppression too – not just styling. The idea was to convince local Japanese shoppers to buy domestic.

Toyota started with the best-possible candidate for smoothness, its legendary ‘2JZ’ 3.0-litre straight six. The engine is a variable-valve timed and buttery smooth. The amount of thick carpet and sound deadening found in a 150-series Crown is plentiful too, meaning the cabin is quiet and feels rather high-end.

And depending on the model you buy, you’ll get some awesome factory options too. This particular car has a digital dashboard, electro multi-vision screen, rear electric seats, and more.

The 150-series Toyota Crown is affordable, inherently quality, and shows great potential in terms of modification.

At the end of the day – it’s a rear-wheel drive Toyota S-chassis vehicle with a 2JZ!
