1962 Toyota Other Crown RS40
Up for auction today is a 1962 Toyota Crown S40 Sedan (Toyopet), his is a very rare car and a piece of Toyota’s automotive history. This car is from a private collection, he sale is due to loss of storage space and the collector is trying to downsize the collection. This car has always been a Canadian Car since being imported to Canada. The car is 98% complete and original. The recent restoration which includes the interior, ngine, uspension, rakes and the exterior paint have been checked/restored/ redone in 2013. There was only 271 LHD cars ever imported for the North American Market and this is one of them!!! The car starts and runs very well. The engine and gearbox (Toyoglide automatic 2-speed) was looked over, he interior has been totally restored from top to bottom. The carburetor and brakes were recently serviced and cleaned. The rear shocks and suspension are in great condition, he exterior of the car is in very good condition as well minus the chrome. All lights and gauges work and are also in very good condition. The chrome front and back bumpers along with the door handles will need to be redone as shown in the pictures. It is unknown if the radio is functional at the point of sale, herefore that may need some looking over as well. When we pulled the car out of the warehouse/ collection the door rubbers and boot rubbers were taken out, have an old set of rubbers. Very fine minor(less than 3cm scratches may be present from car shows and outings). There is also a windshield chip on the front windshield(2-3 cm). The car is also missing an antenna for the radio. Other than that the car is in great condition and ready for a new owner. The only reason for the sale is because I am trying to downsize my collection due to storage space constraints. The car is in very good condition and has been in many shows and Canada day parades. The car is structurally sound with no holes or bondo, hatsoever. The car is very straight as you can see, ith no rust holes or patches underneath as well. Unrestored Toyota Crowns have been sold anywhere from $3000 to $6000 in the past few years.
