This book provides an in-depth look at the history and mechanisms of the “GT car” 1600GT, which was born during the culmination of Toyota’s postwar passenger car manufacturing era.
The Toyota 1600GT was the “little brother” of the Toyota 2000GT, but it was a more successful car on the race circuit than its big brother.
It initially debuted on the circuit under the name RT-X, but the 1600GT was decided to be marketed based on the concept of inheriting all of its DNA after being trained in actual racing.
This book has been edited to bring into relief the “true image” of the Toyota 1600GT, a famous car that until now has not been well known. The book also provides detailed information on the styling, engine, transmission, suspension, steering system, etc., and what was ahead of the times and what was behind the times. …… The photos documenting the three-year full overhaul reveal the structure of each part of the car. This is the one and only commercially available “structural manual” that describes the details of the Toyota 1600GT.
