The vendor tells us that he acquired this 2997cc 1988 Toyota Crown Royal Saloon G in 2006, before which its elderly owner had used it only for summer use, garaging it the rest of the time. It is believed that the vehicle was initially imported into the UK by the Ford Motor Company who wanted to examine its new technology, although there is no actual proof of this. The car is absolutely loaded with advanced equipment, much of which wouldn't become commonplace until the 1990s or even the 21st century.

The vendor has maintained the vehicle over the years with oil changes, tyres and brake pads as required. He reports that, despite the scarcity of the model in the UK, spares are available. The Crown Royal Saloon, a flagship of the Toyota range at the time, is described as being 'a pleasure to drive, smooth (with air suspension) and powerful, and crammed with many state‑of‑the‑art (for 1988) features'. These include a digital dashboard, CD‑ROM‑based automotive navigation system, CD player, and hands‑free telephone system ‑ yes, in the 1980s!


The history folder includes the V5C, 2006 tax disc, current MoT certificate (valid until October 2022) and past ones from 2004, 2006, 2007, 2008 and 2014 . Three former registered keepers are recorded, and the odometer reading is 69,086km.

The car is in very good condition outside and in, with its red velour cabin being especially well‑preserved.
