The Evolution of the Early Toyota Crown
This shot was taken circa 1990 in Brantford, Ontario. I don’t recall ever seeing a Crown of this vintage actually running on the road, although I remember a few later editions, including a really nice Coupe version in Quebec in the mid-seventies. The Corona’s were able as big as it got around Canada in the 60’s and 70’s.
I don’t think it was just Canada, Dean – I don’t ever remember seeing one in the midwestern US either.
This looks like it could be one of the early ones with the big four before they introduced the M series six.
Here’s a nice one I saw in Gisborne a few years back. Same colour even.
What’s the car behind it? Pretty old for a 1990 shot. I’d guess a Mercury, but I’m sure someone out in CC land knows for sure.
I think that it’s a ’51 Lincoln sedan. The Pan American race era cars. I talked my Dad into buying one in very good condition. It was nice, but very plain in my eyes. Especially in comparison to a contemporary Cadillac.
