They're going for $12k+ in worse condition. If what you say about the engine and all, is as true as you were told, then you made out just fine. In any case,
it's your's now, and you'll find out soon enough what you're going to be dealing with. If it's still here in the SoCal area, and you'd like an experienced eye to check it out, I could be persuaded to take a look and see what's what. By the way, can you drive it? Want any help in learning how, and how to check things, and take care of a Crown? If interested email me direct, not the PM here. Email: email@example.com
Welcome to the ranks of the the Certifiable Crown Owners, it's a rather small and rarefied conglomeration.
