Auction Block: 1967 Toyota 2000GT

Few cars can match the aesthetic prestige of the Datsun 240z, but if there’s one Japanese variant that can give it a run for its money, it’s the Toyota 2000GT. This rare vehicle has a storied, but complex history, accenting its handsome looks with more than just well-sculpted body lines. Now, a supremely immaculate example from 1967 has been listed for sale on RM Sotheby’s.

The 1967 Toyota 2000GT you see here is a rarefied specimen amidst a subset of already-endangered vehicles. As one of only 62 left-hand-drive models released for the United States’ automotive market, it was ordered (and acquired) by Otto Linton, a famous participant of America’s inaugural post-WWII road race. Over the course of 30 years, the Solar Red platform would remain in his care, eventually falling into the hands of Maine’s Main Line Exotics, where it would undergo a thorough, Concours-level restoration in its original hue. Now, the car is making its way to the auction block, giving enthusiastic collectors a chance to own one of the most significant Japanese automobiles of all time. Look for the 1967 Toyota 2000GT in RM Sotheby’s Elkhart Collection, which should go live on May 1.
