That means that the Lexus LS400 and Toyota Cressida were available at the same time for three model years, giving Toyota shoppers the choice of two different rear-drive luxury sedans. I can’t recall ever seeing a ’92 Cressida prior to this one, so here’s a super-rare Junkyard Find from Denver.
I was at the junkyard on this trip to pull the digital cluster out of the ’84 Cressida, which meant I didn’t have a proper camera on me. The affirmations painted on this car’s steering wheel, however, show up just fine on a cellphone camera’s image.
The V8 in the LS was quieter and more powerful than the L6 in the Cressida, but the 7M was still a reasonably luxurious engine.
83,000 miles? How is that even possible for an early-90s Toyota?
