Toyota Crown/Cressida/Landcruiser 1964-2006 – 2018 market review

Big news in this category is the extraordinary money being sought (and paid) overseas for early Landcruisers and how the trend is filtering through to Australia.

Forty thousand for a restored 40 Series is fair it seems for our market but the world record price for an FJ40 stands at US$137,500.

Passenger models including the heavyweight Crown and slightly less lugubrious Cressidas are moving upwards, with early 1970s Crowns hitting $10,000 and 1980s cars mostly below $5000.

That money also buys a decent 2.8 or 3.0-litre Cressida.

Later model, low-volume import Crowns with turbo-six or V8 engines cost around $15,000.
