TOYOTA 2000GT RESCUE Sydney

Imagine finding the car of your dreams hidden in a shed. It happens!


Somewhere in the depths of a workshop in Sydney, a remarkable thing is happening: the resuscitation of what is probably the world’s most desirable Japanese car, and certainly an internationally-recognised top-end classic. It’s a 1967 Toyota 2000GT.
Just 337 production versions are thought to have been made, for a total of 351 including pre-production prototypes – some of the latter are still in existence.
Powered originally by a Yamaha-designed double overhead cam straight six, these gems came to international attention thanks to a drive-in role in the 1967 James Bond movie You Only Live Twice, starring Sean Connery. In the film, the car was mostly driven by Bond’s screen girlfriend Aki, played by Akiko Wakabayashi
