A perfect S140 Toyota Crown Super Saloon, seen on a car parts market in Beijing. The 8th generation Toyota Crown was made from 1987 until 1997, the facelifted S140 was produced from 1991 until 1997.

Here we have a very hot ‘n black sixth generation Toyota Crown, seen by reader Steve in the great city of Yanji in Jilin Province, thank you very much for the pics! Jilin Province is up in the northeast, close to Russia, North Korea and Japan. The area was famous for smuggling in the 1960′s and 1970′s when consumer good were very hard to get in China. All sorta pretty, ranging from CD-players to cars, came in from Japan via Russia.

Another fine old Japanese limousine, seen on a parking lot here in the capital Beijing. This is a 7th generation Toyota Crown, made from 1983 to 1987. Brown car on pics is a very basic version of the otherwise luxurious Toyota, likely an early 1983 or 1984 model. The Toyota Crown was never officially exported to China but we do know the Chinese government bought a few batches of 1000 cars each in the 1980′s for use by government officials.

New spy shots from the facelifted Toyota Crown, a car that sells so poorly one could easily forget about it completely. Toyota wants the facelifted Crown to do better and is therefore aiming at the young. Toyota will launch a special China-only Crown Sport to attract new buyers. At the same time however Toyota is dropping the mighty 4.3 V8, which might just be the most attractive engine for those young horse-power hungry maniacs.
