Toyota 2000GT - Japan's first Supercar, considered to be the most collectable Japanese car of all time! The Toyota 2000GT was a limited edition, front-engine, rear-wheel drive, two-seat, hardtop coupé grand tourer designed by Toyota in collaboration with Yamaha.

It was first displayed to the public at the Tokyo Motor Show in 1965, and was manufactured under contract by Yamaha from 1967 to 1970.
The 2000GT revolutionized the automotive world's view of Japan and demonstrated that Japanese auto manufacturers could produce a sports car to rival those of Europe.

Only 351 were ever made. Two of them were converted into convertibles for a 007 James Bond movie and one got obliterated by a fallen tree in Japan, another three were given to racing legend Carol Shelby to create the Shelby-Toyota 2000GT SSCA for the race track.

It's most famous screen appearance was in the 1967 James Bond movie 'You Only Live Twice', most of which was filmed in Japan. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W8eJ8bj2sh0

Although not quite as well known to the general public as later Japanese sports cars such as the Nissan Z, the 2000GT is regarded by many as the first collectible Japanese car, and examples have sold at auction for as much as $1.2million. 2015 was the 50th Anniversary of the 2000GT

Valve covers
Left front wheel
Cylinder head
Oil filler cap
Hub nut

Insert the pin on the bottom of the oil filler cap into the hole in the valve cover marked ‘2000’.

Push the pin on the oil filler cap into the hole in the cover. Push the filler cap in until it is flat against the cover.

Put the parts that you didn’t use in this stage into a resealable plastic bag. This will keep them tidy, make them easier to store and protect them from damage and dirt. Do this with any unused parts at the end of every assembly stage.

Write the stage number on the bag with a felt-tip pen, to help you identify the parts when you need them.

Stage 5 - Exhaust manifolds and silencers

Contains parts –

Front exhaust manifold
Rear exhaust manifold
Silencers × 2
Right mirror
Tailpipes × 2

The outer side of the right mirror supplied with this stage has a chrome finish while the inner side is matt. This is because the inner side of the mirror on the real car was coated with anti-glare paint to reduce the risk of the driver being dazzled by reflected sunlight.
This feature has been recreated on your model. The mirror glass is covered by a protective film. Leave the film in place for now, and store the mirror away in a marked plastic bag until it is needed.

Take the block and the front manifold (marked “F”), and align the two projections on the manifold with the two holes in the block, push fully into the holes and then do the same for the rear (marked “R”).

Take one of the silencers and insert its cylindrical end into the squared-off end of one of the tailpipes with the longest part of the cutaway facing upwards, then do the same for the second silencer.

Stage complete.
