Hopefully it didnt languish there for no reason. Lets hope it went to good use in the restoration of others!

With that quarter window and those tires it was more than likly a race car, and there is usualy nothing less loved than an old race car (unfortunaly). Seems that once a lot of them are past being competitive they just get stuffed behind the shop while a newer more competitive car is built.

When I was in Japan I visited with some 2000GT owners, and in the collection of one owner were numerous pictures of this car. He wasn't sure as to it's story, but when we asked some of the other guys it turns out this car is actually one of the Fuji race cars from around 1967. After racing for Toyota the car was sold and made it into private hands where it continued racing, although with a highly modified body as can be seen by the fender flares.

Here is a file photo of two of the cars at the 24 Hours of Fuji 1967

I'll try to see if I can get some more scans of the car and more exact info.

Sad thing. Someone should send the picture to Toyota, so they can pick it up and restore it.

Without going into elaborate detail, the current owner knows the complete racing history of the car, and chooses to keep the vehicle in its’ current condition of rot. Par for the course. I have seen at least 30 cars in the last year in various conditions of “just sitting”. The owners do not want to part with them, could care less about keeping the vehicles out of the elements, and have no plans for restoration. It is cultural behavior. Even in the current stagnant economy of Japan, belts are tightened, breath held, a stubborn face is put on sales of vehicles, and posted prices hold. I have seen the same Isuzu ZZR (PF60), and 1983 “Iron Mask” Skyline for sale for 4+ years, with no bartering allowed, or even entertained on price!
