1978 Toyota Crown Estate Wagon 2.6 petrol from Pakistan


Reliability and comfort


Small problems, like I can't find the tail lights and front parking lights.

General Comments:

Hi to all you Crown lovers out there, I read everybody's comments, really loved to hear that most of you had a nice time with their car.

Well mine is the oldest; a 1978 Toyota Crown Estate Wagon. I am its second owner, as its first owner was Mr Brown, an Australian. I still love to drive this car, it is one of the most comfortable cars I have ever driven, and very solid.

I had a few accidents, and I had wrecked the other cars really bad, but it is my fathers car and he insists on keeping it. My father has owned this car since 1983, which makes it 24 years since we owned the car; since then we have bought and sold many cars, but not the Crown as it has become a part of our family. The car has always been very reliable, and is my dad's absolute favourite.

Since I had a few accidents, I am unable to find parking lights and taillights for my car. Please please, can anyone can help here? He or she can comment and let me know.

Thanks in advance.

I guess that 6 years is a long time to wait for an answer, but I think he means that the park and tail lights have broken lenses from the collisions, and he can't find replacements. :-) Sorry, but I can't help any more than that.

I'm a bit envious. I drove a paddock basher Crown station wagon, of forgotten vintage, with a 2.6L six and 4 speed manual, a few years back, and couldn't believe how smooth and fast it was, nor how unburstable the engine seemed! It just revved and revved. Lovely!

Front two electric windows stopped working.

It was a great car ahead of its time though. Handled well and very economical, but lacked in power. Top speed of 120 km per hour.
