The Story

My first RHD car. Wanted something kinda fun but also something useable everyday. Imported by yours truly with the help of B-Pro Auto in March of 2023. Car was purchased with the majority of mods done to it. For those not familiar with this car; The motor is a 1JZ-GTE, usually paired to an automatic transmission. Rear wheel drive. The Crown comes in either sedan or estate body types with a variety of trim packages. The Athlete V package is the trim which comes with the 1JZ-GTE. Other engine options include the NA versions of the 2JZ and 1JZ. If you have any questions about the car Iā€™m more than glad to try and answer them!
