Toyota Gazoo Racing Australia 2000GT Restoration

Hidden in a garage for 40 years, this 2000GT isn’t what it seems on the surface. Throughout its previous life, it was the victim of some unorthodox modifications. Where you once found that signature Yamaha-built 2-litre inline-6, you now have a Range Rover V8 - the second of two V8 swaps this car has received. It also has a Jaguar E-type rear end, and getting that in the car involved a significant bit of chassis butchering. The guy overseeing the restoration says they do a lot of restorations, but this car is the furthest away from the factory original as anything he’s ever worked on.
