1967 Toyota 2000 GT – Click above for high-res image gallery

The 1967 Toyota 2000 GT is a unique beast in that it seems above reproach by even the harshest automotive critics. 44 years after the first 2000 GT rolled out of the Toyota factory, it checks all the right boxes. It's fast, gorgeous, insanely rare and marked a new era for its manufacturer.

Prior to the 2000 GT, Toyota was known for spitting out small, reliable, cheap sedans and four-by-fours that got the job done admirably, but lacked a little je ne sais quoi. The 2000 GT changed all that, and showed that Toyota could hang with Italian blue-bloods like Ferrari almost at the flip of a switch.

Toyota wound up building just 351 2000 GTs for worldwide consumption. Just 84 of those were left-hand-drive, with only 62 making it to the States. This is one of perhaps 40 American-delivery 2000 GTs that still exist. It's a one-owner car, bought in St. Louis, Missouri. After a long time in storage, the car got a thorough detail job, engine rebuild and interior freshening at Maine Line Exotics in Biddeford, Maine. It's available on eBay with a stupefying $650,000 Buy-It-Now. If you have the means, we suggest you do just that.

      This proves that Toyota hasn't always made boring, beige econoboxes.
      • 3 Years Ago
      This is one hell of a car and Toyota should revive the 2000GT nameplate! I'd buy one for sure!
        • 3 Years Ago
        I agree that would be one monumental revival . . . even bigger then the GTR


        I could just imagine what a new 2000gt would be.... my brain cant even begin to imagine the amount of awesome new a new 2000gt would be. . .
        • 3 Years Ago
        Yes definitely! It would be very momumental. Maybe they are already working on it as we speak and are going to reveal it out of nowhere. now that would be great!

        Let's just hope they don't disappoint with the FT-86.

      Time for Toyota to make a new 2000GT with retro styling cues.
      • 3 Years Ago
      Definitely the coolest Toyota they ever didn't make. It was actually built for them by Yamaha.
      • 3 Years Ago
      If I'd been the one to win the recent Mega Millions...
      This.
      • 3 Years Ago
      Wow, if I just had $650k laying around. The closest I've ever gotten to one of those was building a model kit, 40 years ago. Man, what a whole lot of awesomeness.
        • 3 Years Ago
        a hell of a car with a hell of price tag
        wonder what if i buy a LFA now and keep it for 44 years
      • 3 Years Ago
      OK, April Fools
      • 3 Years Ago
      I'd take an E-Type over that any day of the week.
      • 3 Years Ago
      Great looking car, Toyota what happened to your cars?
        • 3 Years Ago
        Same thing that happened to just about every other manufacturers' cars. They got better, but somehow, they're just not as good. I don't think I've ever seen a Toyota I love more than this, not even the FT86.
      • 3 Years Ago
      A nice rip-off of the Jag E-type.
      • 3 Years Ago
      $650k? Good luck with that. Even if I were filthy rich and willing to blow over half a mil on a car....off the top of my head I can think of probably 15-20 other rare exotics I would buy before a 2000 GT, and probably more if I gave it some real thought. Of course, for the billionaire who has already bagged all of his dream cars..this could be just the ticket to round out the collection.
      • 3 Years Ago
      I saw this car, 30 years ago, sitting in the Toyota dealership (now Ackerman Toyota) showroom in St Louis.

      I was picking up my 1982 Celica GT. I should have taken it instead. Smaller than it looks, BTW.....
