Here's something for those looking for a slightly different Japanese sedan experience. 75K miles stated. Looking for a $1,500 opening bid.

From the auction description: "4M 2600 2.6 liter 6 cycle [sic] engine. Five speed automatic transmission. Toyota Glide. Original interior and paint. Toyota green altaire metallic. CONDITION: Barn find. Areas of rust and paint loss to body. Starts, does not run."

Not sure how it ended up in a "Fine Arts" auction - could be part of an estate liquidation.


1971 Toyota Crown Sedan - 3

Nice. That's quite the piece of history there.

Classic Toyotas with a Rust to Metal ratio like that are extremely hard to find in Pennsylvania.  And that one has been parked longer than I've been alive.
