    Toyota 2000GT restore

    The car came from my grandfather and is in relatively great shape. The engine stalled a few years back and from then on in was just garaged.
    I'm doing a full restoration with a repaint. Currently looking for a mechanic to take a look at the 3M engine.












    Im looking for a parts catalog if anyone can help point me in the right direction.

    Like everybody else has said, very nice, very lucky. Closest I ever got to something like this was the Leica M3 my grandmother left me. Beautiful car and good luck with the resto.

    The only reason i have this car now was that my grandfather was the manufacturer of Toyota here in the Philippines during the 70's to the early 80's. He brought in 4 GT's into the Philippines and this is the only one left with our family.
    There are 3 2000GT's here (mine included) and the 4th one was shipped to the US.

    Ill try getting in touch with Toyota Japan. The Toyota chairman was just here in Manila a couple of months ago but i unfortunately couldnt make the event that hosted the dinner.

    Ill post updates as they happen. I also got the 2000GT book directly from Mr. Shin and he was kind enough to sign it for me.
