Toyota will sell spare parts for the rare 2000GT modelJuly 6, 2020
50 years later, after the production of the sports model Toyota 2000GT, the Japanese automaker plans to continue to produce parts for this car. Reception of orders starts in August.
More than a year ago, when Toyota announced the new generation of the Supra sports coupe, the automaker also announced that it would start producing spare parts for the iconic A70 and A80 generation models. This step, obviously, caused a lot of positive reactions among fans of these cars. Now, a Japanese company has announced that it will also sell parts for the vintage 2000GT.
The 2000GT was a small sports coupe introduced in 1967 and developed in collaboration with Yamaha.
It had a 2.0-liter six-cylinder engine, four disc brakes, radial tires, retractable headlights. More importantly, due to its low weight, it was able to reach a speed of 220 km / h, which, according to Toyota, was “on par with European sports cars of the time.”
At the moment, the manufacturer will sell gears, a hub and a hub of a synchronizer, a set of gaskets and seals, a set of bearings, a set of spring rings, a thrust washer and a shift fork for the 2000GT model, which is equipped with a 5-speed manual gearbox. In addition, if you want to restore the differential of the car, the final transmission kit and a bolt for installing the ring gear will be available.
Given the rarity of a sports car, reproduced parts will only be available to actual 2000GT owners to prevent resale and speculation on the price of the parts. Reception of orders will be open from August 1 on the website of Toyota Gazoo Racing or at Toyota dealers in Japan. Sales abroad should begin shortly afterwards.
