Looking to attract the most attention possible at your next local car meet? Sure, you can buy one of the latest, greatest supercars out there. Or you can get this thing: a 1991 Toyota Crown sedan that's been converted into a hearse. Someone recently imported it from Japan, and now, .
Welcome to You Must Buy, our daily look at the cars you really should be buying instead of that boring commuter sedan.
Judging by the pictures, the conversion looks to be well done, with clean cuts and good proportions. Everything behind the front seats has been replaced with some very traditional-looking architecture, which we assume stands out nicely in a parking lot. The car is right-hand drive, obviously, sending power to the rear wheels via a 2.0-liter inline-six and a five-speed manual transmission. It comes complete with the stock steel wheels, wheel covers, and factory AM radio.
The black paint seems to be in good condition, as do the chrome trim pieces, navy-colored interior, and JDM-spec fender-mounted side mirrors. The seller notes some minor exterior blemishes, but nothing that calls for serious attention. It's worth mentioning the rear suspension seems a bit overwhelmed by all that extra weight. We'd probably try to beef up the springs and dampers to even everything out.
The car is currently , with a Buy It Now price of $19,750 or best offer. That's a bit more than what your average Toyota Crown brings in, but considering the rarity and all the custom work done here, it makes sense. It's hard to put a fair number on something as obscure as this, that's for sure.
