1991 Toyota Crown
Zoom icon


Originally introduced in the mid-1950s, the Toyota Crown was marketed as an affordable luxury vehicle. Though it isn't a particularly large vehicle, it sure is a lot in a small package! An instant hit across many areas of the target market, Crowns are both affordable and fun today. Believe it or not, this 1991 model is part of the eighth generation of the Crown. What's that you say? You've never seen one before? That may be because this is a Japanese market only vehicle, and was never sold in the US. This pretty little Crown is an up and coming modern JDM classic! With just over 119,000 kilometers on the odometer (74,000 miles), condition is just what one would expect for the age.
This 1991 Toyota Crown for sale may look similar to the USDM Toyota Cressida, and while they do share a few parts here and there, the Cressida and Crown are actually completely different cars. This car is a Japan Domestic Model import (yes, from Japan!) and it is federally legal having been fully, legally brought into the country by an importer. Unless you are or know a collector, or are otherwise an enthusiast for JDM vehicles, this may be the first you're hearing of these vehicles! This is a subtle vehicle, that will occasionally turn heads without drawing a crowd. Looking to drive something unique but fly under the radar? This just may be the JDM classic for you.
Step inside, and you'll immediately notice that you've gotten into the wrong side of this car. Since it was originally sold for the Japanese market, it is right-hand drive (RHD)! This is a fun, quirky feature of this car (and anything JDM) that is a sure conversation starter. Driving this Crown is quite the experience if you are used to LHD vehicles! The interior is in excellent condition, and is completely original. The original radio was changed out for a USDM Cressida unit as Japanese radios do not pick up the full range of US frequencies. The seats, carpet, and plastics are all in excellent condition and this car is very much a time capsule back to the 1990s!
Under the hood, you'll find the crown jewel: the supercharged 2.0 liter 1G-GZE Toyota inline six cylinder! This is an ideal choice for both reliability and ideal power for this car. For being a comfortable sedan, and not at all a performance vehicle, it moves itself along nicely! For some drivers, the automatic transmission will be preferable in conjunction with the RHD aspect of this car as it makes it easier to adjust to being reverse of the usual driving position. Besides, this is a luxury cruiser with a reclining back seat and rear refrigerator, not a race car! That's right, there's a drink cooler in the package tray that operates off of the air conditioning system.
As a whole, this 1991 Toyota is in excellent condition as can be expected for a 74,000 mile vehicle. There are so many neat features on this car, you'd just about have to see it in person to really appreciate it! Affordable luxury, Toyota reliability, JDM uniqueness...the list goes on. It is incredibly clean, both inside and out, and could easily be taken to the next level as a JDM classic. A great option for a JDM enthusiast looking to get into the hobby at a reasonable price!

We can assist you in delivery through our network of private and commercial carriers. Most of which can deliver the vehicle to your driveway. We assume no responsibility for damages or delays incurred once a vehicle is in a shipper's custody.
