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
