ITT2012: The green whale MS75

July 20, 2012 in Events by banpei

Yesterday I posted the yellow whale Crown MS68 but I also shot a couple of photos of another kujira (whale) crown: green hardtop coupe MS75!

The coupe was completely bone stock and still in its original paint!

I think I shot a similar photo like this one last year at the Japanese Classic Sunday:

I did not upload the photo to Flickr so I compared it with the one in my photo stash and it was nice to see how my photography had improved since last year. ;)

The interior was also in perfect nick and even had power windows and an OEM original cassette radio built in:

Also nice to see what difference a polarization filter makes when I compare it to the photo I made at the Wangan Warriors meet last year. I was still not able to get rid of all glare, but the interior is more visible now.

Under the bonnet I found the the trusty 2 litre M engine:

Just look at all that chrome details!

This car is definitely one of my favorite 70s Toyotas! Its bonkers space-age styling just screams whale!
