The Immortal Toyota Crown (Part 3)

Now briefly about the technical features.
The Toyota Crown of the sixth generation was produced  between 1979 and 1983 and was offered in not only various body, but also engine modifications.  As for this model, it has a body index LS-110; moreover, the configuration even has its own name-Super Delux, which indicates the availability of an air conditioner, stereo system, electric windows and side-view mirrors, power door locks, and some other features.

The presence of a one-piece supporting frame, dependent rear axle and an economical diesel engine makes this car really distinctive. By the way, the power train of the “L” model has a capacity of 2.2 liters (2188CC), which produces 72HP and has a torque of 126 Nm. Exactly the same power train was installed on the legendary Hilux and Hiace known for their high performance and reliability on the hottest and hard-to-reach spots of our planet.

In the late 80s the countries of the USSR were swept by an import wave of used and relatively inexpensive right-hand-drive vehicles from Japan.  As for this car, it’s one of the first Toyotas in Armenia. It appeared in Yerevan in 1989. Having been used as a taxi cab in its homeland for about 10 years and having been driven nearly 400.000 kilometers , the car, in a sheer factory condition,  was brought to Yerevan as an everyday vehicle.
