Aussie Built Toyotas wanted for Toyota Factory Display

Recommended Posts

Hi all

Through the Toyota Car Club down here in Victoria I have received some correspondence from Toyota, as they are putting together a display of original Australian built Toyota's. They already have a good collection from the 60's when AMI first kicked off, but then it drops off, so they are looking for some assistance from enthusiasts out there. If you have a nice nanna spec corolla/corona/crown/camry that was built here in Australia, they would like to hear from you.

Given you won't have your car for a few days, I am thinking it will suit Victorians mostly.

Anyways here is the message - contact Peter on the email listed, or alternatively PM me.

> I'm the National Manager of Product Training and Publications for

> My employer, the Toyota Motor Corporation Australia Ltd, wish to hold a

> You probably already know that the first Toyota to ever be built outside
