1974 Toyota Crown supersaloon 2.6 from North America
The 1974 Toyota Crown Supersaloon was the best car Toyota made for it's time
Rear wheel bearings went at 58,000 miles... same with hand brake cable from under dash...,starter motor..., and front disc pad..., pinion bearing and seal...,front solid rotors and seals. Front seats began showing wear at 58,000 miles, but have been replaced with better seats from Crown 112. All the above at 58,000 miles.
Car is much faster off the line because the head received 5 angle valve job... port work to open up head..., forged pistons with C/r of 11:1 Carburetor was re jetted to deliver more fuel, MSD/AL6 with 60,000 volt ignition coil, electric fuel pump, 8.5 mm coil wires...,uprated alternator... uprated oil pump..., 2.5" exhaust system, stiffer springs giving car a firmer ride with adjustable shocks...100% sound proof... car yet have 8 track with am/fm/short wave radio,...12 cd changer with twin amplifier... one for front speakers and the other for rear speakers... uprated head lamp bulbs as opposed to seal beam.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I think this car has done many more kilometers than is indicated.

I agree with the previous comment... why put ANY money into what may arguably be called one of the homeliest cars ever built. Even with your enhancements I doubt you could get more than a grand for this turkey!
