look on car-part.com and search by your zip code. There are quite a few located at yards around the country. Make sure to try different years since things change by the year, but you can be smarter and use any year.

I suppose it could run with some work but I would start with just asking the owner... it never hurts. Whether they are currently good or not, I would plan to replace the bearings since the engine is already out and accessible.

got the brakes working again on this !! Fresh fluid and bled the system with my little brother and it has nice pedal feel 👍🏽.

Also repaired the butchered radio wires that were causing my parking light fuse to blow. Not sure if one of those wires I repaired were for the fog lamps because those are working now too , double
Win haha .

soldering isn’t perfect but it does the job.

Going to get a vin inspection tomorrow, hopefully everything goes smooth , going to try the dmv , thankfully there’s a CHP close so that’s another option. Goal right now is to get a title on this thing before I start dumping money into it. if everything checks out then next step is buying another 5m and rebuilding it and swapping it in.

There is one for free on another thread...

Just curious, take a pic of the firewall dataplate. We did not see that color too often.

Towed it to CA today , everything went pretty smoothly thankfully , all that’s left to do is the brake and light inspection , was going to do it but found out the handbrake has to hold the vehicle and right now the bottom on the handbrake handle is missing so the handle doesnt stay locked in place..so hopefully I’ll get that sorted and get that last inspection done so I can finally get a title on this thing.

Good eye , Much Appreciated ^^ sadly it’s a all in one package , if it were the engine itself I would’ve taken it. 👍🏽

Also did some digging around on this site and I found the p/n for the parking brake button. ordered a new e brake button , rotors for front and rear and pads , and we’ll also see how the soft lines and calipers look like once I remove them. hopefully I can make some more progress on this beauty next week 😃

I think the only added external part was in 85 was Knock sensor , which you don't have/need. Other than that, you will have to swap your accessories, and probably the engine harness.
So yes a Cressida engine should be bolt-on.

Picked up the engine a few days ago , turns over just fine by hand. But not sure how to check if it’s actually good since I can’t compression test it without a starter or flex plate bolted on. What do you guys recommend doing ? Engine is apparently out of a 84 Cressida
