The Immortal Toyota Crown (Part 4)

This engine is aggregated with a 5-speed manual transmission.
This Toyota is one of the brightest proofs of how reliable the cars of the past and the so-called cast-iron engines were. Having a mileage of more than 1.500.000 kilometers, this engine has never been repaired! Throughout the entire running period, none of the engine details has been replaced.


The car has undergone only few repairs so far: replacement of the oil pressure gauge (2010) and water-cooling pump (2011), as well as repairs to the injection pump (2012). It’s noteworthy that this car is actively used every day and there has been no major damage to the mechanical units.
The owner of this remarkable car plans to drive from Armenia to Japan in the near future, in order to visit the headquarter of Toyota Motor Corporation. So let’s wish good luck to the organizers of this challenging run.
