Hi, Anyone have any ideas on where to find some small early 60's Mazda T2000 parts? Need grill, nameplates, moldings.
Thanks!

Haha, I was hoping you were the one who picked it up! I'm glad it went to a good home.

Looks like you'll have to take the Airport Limo to Tokyo and jump out midway. ;)

I'm going to see if my equally rough R360 will fit on the back!
A little patina never hurt anyways!

Well, probably I can help with some parts as in Greece there used to be a lot of T1500s, actually locally assemblied. Looking for parts for my T600, which also used to be a very popular three wheeler during 60s, I realised that is much easier to buy a whole relic in good condition than find any parts. Moulding and things like that is very hard to be found in mint condition. Mazda Greece has still some engine and mechanical parts, most of them being common with the D1500 truck, also known as Kraft in Japan. You d better buy a parts catalog from yahoo auctions jp and send me some parts numbers to check with mazda Greece. I am an old mazda collector so I visit them at least once every month in order to buy parts for my cars. Its not that hard to add a list of a dozen for your car every time they check. I even found new R360 indicators thrown at a backyard of a mazda greece store last year. Of course your best option is yahoo auctions jp. I know there are parts for all mazda three wheelers. I bought taillights for my rather rare T600, compared to the K360, just two days before. If you want to see the specifications of the Greek T1500 go to "ausrotary" and search with the key word T1500 or "rusty relics Greece". There are some pics there.
Gongratulations for the T2000.

Thanks, baltsiotis.
I will search the auctions in Japan for a parts book, which I have already tried with no luck so far. Most of the parts I need are trim parts, which I can restore as new ones are probably impossible to find. I'll keep in touch.
Thanks, Glenn

When I visit mazda greece again I ll ask for the parts book, if its not stored somewhere hard to be located (as are other books of that "age") I ll photo the mouldings and emblems pages for you. By the way, photos of more T1500 in good or very good condition can be found at the section for "historic vehgicles" at the greek forum 4tforum.gr. Type "T1500" at the search (in Greek Αναζήτηση).
Good luck

If I live long enough, both the R360 and T2000 will be at the JCCS.

I uncovered a name on the tailgate, WEST LUMBER CO. if anyone has seen it, it is not West Lumber in West Tx. as I called them already.
Here is a size comparison

Congratulations on the T2000 purchase.
It is expected to repair early.

It can introduce the friend who offers parts from Japan.

Glenn, I think I will put postage stamps on all of my projects here in Australia and send them over to you. It will be cheaper in the long run and a far better restoration than I could ever do.

As usual, this restoration is of the highest standard. I was amazed with the first LHD R360 restoration and the subsequent 110S's but you just keep building them. Wow :shock:

If you come across any T600 parts in your quest for T2000 parts please keep me in mind. If you haven't seen it, my recent purchase is featured here:

viewtopic.php?t=9845

Thank you so much for keeping all of us inspired! :D
