Toyota Crown Super Deluxe S50 1967 Legendary Design – Launched Toyota Crown Super Deluxe S50 in 1967 is the 3rd generation Toyota high-end luxury car. The mechanics are almost identical to the previous generation, but additional equipment is included. The higher specification model uses a 2.0 liter M engine or 2.3 liter 2M engine while the lower specified model is equipped with a four-cylinder R-series engine.
Toyota Crown Super Deluxe S50 1967 range now included 4-door station wagon, pick-up (rare), double cab pick-up (very rare) and the new two-door hardtop “personal luxury car”. In 1969 the Crown received a facelift for the headlight, grill and trim arrangement. The Crown S used the two-liter ‘six’, but due to the sport tuning it was produced more power than the larger 2M, 125 PS (92 kW) at 5,800 rpm versus 115 PS (85 kW) at 5,200 rpm. The commercial versions were fitted with the six-cylinder “M” engine (M-C) produce 105 PS (77 kW), while the four-cylinder 5R had to make do with 93 PS (68 kW). This generation was the only one to use a double-hinged tailgate, as the next generation converted to overhead-lifting hatchback door.
The Toyota Crown Super Deluxe S50 1967 that were equipped with the 2,253 cc 2M engine were no longer classified as compact cars under Japanese vehicle size classification regulations, even though the length and width were still in compliance. Toyota offered the engine so that buyers who were traditionally served by the Crown could now choose the all-new Corona Mark II in 1968.
