1973 Toyota Cressida Overview

The Toyota Cressida was the precursor to the Lexus line. Introduced in 1973 as a luxury sedan, it was also nicknamed "the four-door Supra" because the two cars shared and engine and were both rear-wheel drive. The Cressida was noted for its quiet, smooth ride and generous amount of standard features. It was also known for its luxurious interior appointments, like the soft cloth seats and faux-wood trim.

The 1973 Toyota Cressida came as a wagon or a sedan. It had a 2.6-liter, 115 horsepower six cylinder. Some of the standard features included air conditioning and an AM/FM/cassette player with an amplifier, both of which were unusual standard features for the time.  The 1973 Cressida came standard with an automatic transmission, but a five-speed manual was also available.

The Toyota Cressida got good reviews for its high-end interior and famously quiet ride. However, some found the fuel economy to be poor.
