This was Lexus before there was Lexus.
You have to be careful when buying an old Cressida. Most of the ones for sale (1986-1990) will more than likely need lots of updates or repairs to make them drivable and reliable again. Many appear to be in good condition, but may need some work done to them.....
You may have seen other Toyota Cressida's before, on the internet or eBay, but trust me, this is as good as it gets. This Cressida is in showroom condition and all original. One owner-my dad. Purchased in May 1990.
A true Toyota Classic...and a piece of history....
195,000 miles (these pictures are a few years old)
1989-1992 Cressida's feature the same engine as the Toyota Supra-a real powerplant!!
7M-GE 24 Valve DOHC engine
Straight Six Inline (I-6) 3.0L
This Cressida has the infamous sliding dashboard-only seen in the 1989 and 1990 models (see pics)
FLAWLESS INTERIOR AND EXTERIOR (seats are a little cracked)
So quiet you can't even hear the engine running. The only thing you notice is the RPM guage hovering...
Everything on this car is original and I plan on keeping it that way. It even has the original Toyota dealer decal on the back from 1990 (as you can see in the pictures) I remember when I was in 2nd grade and my dad bought this car brand new (May 1990) Now I'm 24 and in grad school. Who would have thought that this car would put me through college after all these years?
I installed a new set of xenon headlights when I got the car.
This Cressida has to be the most reliable car I have ever driven (I used to have a Ford Taurus-DON'T BUY A FORD!!). It is built like a tank and has a super smooth ride, almost like riding on a cloud. I have had this car at 130 mph with no problem. The rock solid design and construction make this an incredible car to drive. Not one thing has ever broken!! EVER!!
The Cressida disappeared after Lexus picked up steam in 1992. They are now impossible to find....Trust me...you can't go wrong with a Cressida, especially the '89 and '90 models which are ranked among the top 5 most "problem-free" cars ever according to JD Power and associates.
