    Default Toyota Crown 80 Restoration, Need Suggestions

    Assalam -o- Alaikum

    I parked my toyota crown 1980 model in perfect working order since 2009, Now 2016 I am back from foreign and it is totally out of order.
    rusty body with holes, and everything jammed. That times vebra ( i think ) islamabad was a workshop for such major reworks which I think
    aren't working. Need suggestions for it's complete restoration. Thanks.

    time & resources spent over this rust bucket will put you in tears sourcing parts plus the worker class will leave you full of tears as to why you removed the lid from onion juice jar.

    however you can start by making list parts required for this vehicle as in rubber linings lights suspension rubbers. start sourcing all items and stash in boxes once your parts list is complete take the car to a body shop and be at their mercy for a while

    Royal saloon is more comfy and luxurious. Majesta is more advanced with electronic gadgets than Royal series. Athlete is also luxurious, but more agile & sporty in features They all have little differences in both exterior and interior designs and dash clusters. the chassis & shell shape is same while body cosmetics put them apart

    The Toyota Crown has survived as a mid-sized sedan in the Japanese market since 1955. For a while, it was available as a coupe and even a wagon, and stripped down versions are used by taxi companies across Japan. Yet, despite its popularity, very few people outside of Japan know about it, something we want to change today, be telling you about the latest generation.


    This is the 14th generation of the Crown, which is going to be offered both as the Crown Royal and Crown Athlete, both with slightly different looks. The main between the two is that the Royal features Mercedes-like headlights and Audi-like bar grille, while the sportier Athlete has Mesh and prominent fog lights.

    Both are offered with a choice of three powertrains, the base 2.5-liter V6 with 200 HP (203 PS) and 243Nm (179 lb-ft), a hybrid powertrain that combines the 2.5-liter 4-cylinder from a Camry with an electric motor to produce 176 HP (178 PS) and 221Nm (163 lb-ft), and the Athlete-exclusive 3.5-liter V6 that produces 311 hp (315 PS) and 377Nm (278 lb-ft) with an eight-speed auto box.

    if you ever saw a old rusted car being sand blasted and you want to get that done. then get the car stripped down to the last level. remove each and every rubber part and mechanical part. take off all the suspension. and send the body and chassis to me along the suspension parts, i have a sand blasting facility and i can charge you a very reasonable amount to get rid of all the rust and paint. then you can start adding metal to the holes and other areas and do a fresh paint job from scratch.

    If you visit the market to collect its missing parts, electrician, fixing cost, mechanic fee, paint, rust removing process, engine parts, pipes, tire, rims, hubs, etc. etc. then it gonna take long very long time and expensive as well.

    From Peshawar or Quetta, you can try to search and buy the old crown models. I believe you can find it at PKR 200K to 250K and change the full body.
    It quick, full luxurious & time saving suggestion.

    If your car chasis is 1980 model and you want to do the body change like 1988~1992 model, then I guess the excise fee will be 30~35K only. Because these are very old models.
    So you spend 200~250K to find the good body and then just pay 30~35K extra to legalize it. I bet it will give you great peace of mind.

    There is black color crown in my adjacent office building. He daily comes to office on his antique luxury. I guess its model is 1986-1988. And if I am not forgetting, then I saw his add on PW too as he was selling it for ~400K only. You may consider this option too. I will search his add.

    This is the add i guess.

    Used Toyota Crown Super Select 1986 Car for sale in Lahore | PakWheels

    If you like this shape then you may negotiate the price. I guess, this model should be buy-able till 325~350K with clear documents.

But was like as new, after a year he was followed by customs or excise not sure and signal to stop and surronded by mens few armed, he was told it is illegal and have to pay body custom 350K and verify its frame number in forensic test. Not allowed to drive keeping docs to come to pay and then we'll release, so i want to avoid all these gov hurdles.
