This exceptional survivor was sold at Brunswick Toyota and is clean inside and out. Finished in white with blue velour interior. Automatic transmission with overdrive, sunroof (including tilt feature), The Toyota Cressida was a mid-size car manufactured by Toyota from December 1976 until 1992 through four generations. Cressida was the export version of the Toyota Mark II sold in Japan. The name "Cressida" derives from the lead character in William Shakespeare's play Troilus and Cressida, inspired by Cressida, a female Trojan character. Standard features included air conditioning, automatic transmission (a 5-speed manual was available), power steering, rear seat armrests, AM/FM cassette stereo with amplifier, reclining front seats, and a rear window defroster. The automatic transmission was a four-speed overdrive with an overdrive lockout. Power windows were optional. Toyota introduced the slightly larger fourth generation of the Cressida, the MX83, in 1988 for the 1989 model year – the final generation for the Cressida in North America. Standard features included a new, more powerful 3.0-litre straight six 7M-GE engine producing 190 hp (140 kW) at 6,000 rpm and 185 lb-ft (250 Nm) at 4,400 rpm. As with the powertrain, most other mechanicals were modified versions of those in the Supra, most notably the new double-wishbone rear suspension. Cressidas of this generation sold in North America featured motorized automatic seat belts; airbags were never offered. The Cressida was praised for its comfortable and quiet ride, graceful rear-wheel-drive handling, high gas mileage for its class (23 mpg [US] average according to a July 1989 Consumer Reports test), and stellar reliability.
