I have a 1982 Royal Saloon, ms112. 2.8L 5M-E engine.

It's a fine vehicle, but starting to show its age. Aside from minor electrical wear and tear, like the fan only working when it chooses to, and a door lock doing the same, it's been the most reliable vehicle in my fleet of clunkers.

Fuel economy is disastrous though, especially as I live in the city, and combined with its diet of PULP or Ultimate, gets a bit exxy to run.

Also its suspension is knackered, thanks to years of neglect, and would need a full set of bushes to set right.

However, acres of velour, an engine that's practically silent at idle, and the silky smooth auto make it great.

If you can find one, you'd be a fool to choose an old Commo or Falcon instead.

I have a Toyota Crown Royal saloon, 1992 300 cc. It's great, a powerful car.

Since I bought it about 6 years ago as a used car, it has worked hard until now. The interior is in very good condition and the engine is also in good condition. It's very economical and comfortable car.

I advise everyone to buy Toyota cars, especially Crown Royal. It's a luxury car and when you ride in it you feel like a king for real.

I recently bought a 1985 Toyota Crown. It has a blown head gasket, but I intend to have it repaired and restored.

I used to own a 1984 Crown, which I received when my grandfather passed away when I was 15, but my mechanic wrote it off by ploughing it into another car.

I do not have an owners manual for this car and am desperate to get a hold of one, or at least get one so that I can make a copy. I am prepared to pay for the trouble.

If anyone can help - please email me agalasso@live.com.au

Thank you.

Do you have any service manuals for that car?

I am willing to pay new price for them.

Please let me know.

Kind Regards

I own a 1992 Toyota Crown Royal Saloon G JZS145 2JZ-ge, and the air suspension just stopped working automatically. I usually pump it up by removing the air suspension relay in the fuse box and breach a wire across, then the compressor comes on and the car goes up, but in so doing, cannot control the amount of air in the bags, and sometimes get a rough ride because of too much air. Do you have any help to offer me? My email address is crsbureau@hotmail.com

I have in my possession an owners manual for the Toyota royal saloon, which still looks and smells like new. I can be reached at david.hassanali@gmail.com.

I might also be able to help source and locate engine and some body parts for the ms112, 122 and 131 models.

The Toyota Crown 1983-1987 model is one of the best cars I have come across. The 3C diesel is quite good, and also the TD27 diesel. They are both powerful engines.

Another great car of the DATSUN make is the 260C. It is also a great car.

My father would love to meet you. He owned a red 1984 Toyota Crown. For such a humble guy, he never knew what OVERDRIVE is, or where the rear A/C vents were. Or that we had rear stereo system controls. Even a fridge. He loved the car even more as I grew up and pointed out more features. Luckily his colleague was a great at cars, so he helped keep Dad's car running 100% smooth at all times. 2002 is when Dad sold his car and got a company car (a Honda Accord).
