The car offered here, chassis MF1010100, is a well-known example of this Japanese rarity, recognized for its exceptional originality and integrity. One of only 62 examples imported into the U.S. during the model’s production, this original left-hand-drive car is finished in the popular shade of Solar Red.

This 2000GT is one of three examples originally sold to legendary American tuner, racer and Toyota dealer Otto Linton of Devon, PA. Mr. Linton, an aficionado of fine sports cars, stated that this particular 2000GT was his favorite and the preferred driver of the three he owned.

Certainly one of the finest and most highly regarded examples of Japan’s greatest sports car, this Toyota 2000GT is an important historical benchmark and a world-class automobile on par with the greatest European grand tourers of the 1960s.
