Matteybean's MS65 Crown

Recommended Posts

Those pics look like they were taken at one of the Welly meets a couple years ago.

Is this the same car?

@The Dude was just selling it on Facebook, I'm guessing you got it from him.

Yep it was me, currently selling most of my projects due to the usual financial distress.

oday guess what i found!

 my pre facelift jap assembled automatic has a one piece shaft.

the facelift Australian assembled manual has a two piece shaft. there is an extra crossmember in the chassis that holds a center bearing which the auto dosent have.

i wonder if its a difference between pre facelift and post rather than auto and manual?

Both my crowns have a one piece shaft. Mine being manual and the parts car auto. 

 

Also anyone heading from auckland to hamner meet willing to take parts back for mattybean/sheepers would be appreciated

Fyi.

That wagon tank will in no way fit your car nicely. 

Wagons have them mounted under the car. Sedans they are mounted behind the seat. 

 

This is a cool project.  I too considered buying this at the time.  Glad something is happening with it again!

Do the steering boxes have a coupling like this? Like most 70's toyotas with steering boxes have...

That would therefore mean the power steer box may work?

Assume the previous 4M owner is upgrading to a 186?

Haha back in the 90s yup. This chassis had a big block v8 apparantly

 Hence why they removed the mounts on chassis for extractors im aussming

Haha. Wat

Nah same position but it is different. I need a tank with filler nozzle in middle of wide section. I too dont think itll fit.

Actually lol.

I forgot they have the filler behind the flip down panel between the tail lights. 

Wagons do no. The have a panel on the side.  So will still not fit I imagine. 

Yeah flaps in the middle mate. Just liked god created.

Just noticed the 4m you have is the later style,  same as a 5m etc from later ms112s etc.

@Carsnz123 is or was wrecking a couple of these which should have the pump and brackets you require.  Also the belt is driven around the water pump for power steering pump. So adds an extra groove required on the pulley.  These are simply a small flange that sits on. But make sure you get that as well.
