Toyota Introduces A Reproduction Parts Program For The Supra And 2000GT

3rd and 4th generation Toyota Supra owners and now 2000GT owners will be able to get new parts for their precious cars.


  • Toyota began a GR Heritage Parts Program in May 2019 for the A70 and A90 Supra.

  • Toyota will now add the legendary 2000GT to the list.


Toyota will add the 2000GT to its reproduction parts program, along with the A70 and A80 Supra. If you own a vintage car that isn’t as popular or common as a 60s or 70s Ford Mustang, for example, parts can quickly become difficult to source.

There’s a growing number of carmakers that have introduced similar programs where parts catalogs are dusted off and some are selected for reproduction. The first that will be offered for the Toyota 2000GT will involve the drivetrain starting with gears and more for the 5-speed manual transmission. In the near future, gaskets and seal kits, among other parts, will be made available. The ring and pinion set you see will arrive in the winter of 2020.

As a refresher, the Toyota 2000GT is considered by many as the first Japanese supercar. Between 1967 and 1970, only 337 were built and they all featured a 2.0-litre straight 6-cylinder engine which enabled it to reach 220 km/h. It also boasted four-wheel double-wishbone suspension, four-wheel disc brakes, and many then-novel mechanical technologies. It also became world-famous after appearing in scenes shot in Japan for the James Bond film You Only Live Twice.

As for the two Supras, door handles, precious weather-stripping, headlights, and other parts are on the way. Parts will be available both domestically and overseas (we assume this means the US and Canada too).
