Dave57210 Yup a 2 door HT (Sport Coupe) could be had in either the Model 210 line or the Bel Air - and the (pillarless) 4 door HT (Sport Sedan) was also avail in either the 210 or Bel Air line

The rocker panel chrome is unusual on a 210 - normally was only ordered on a Bel Air

boothboy Uhhh it looks like a two door hard top to me. Not a 210.

Duuhh Never mind.

Dave57210 OK - now you're gonna make me feel stoopid when you point it out. This one is a model 210, (I have a '57 210 - hence my screen name!)

OK mine is a 4 dr ht (Sport Sedan) , so I can maybe be forgiven if I miss some Sport Coupe - specific stuff

I gotta say that it looks a teeny bit out of proportion - like the roof is too tall or too short. My first guess was that it had been shortened in the pass compartment - maybe using sport sedan doors instead of sport coupe doors, but I don't think that's it.

Rear fender top (short) spears are correct for a 210, lack of "shark gill" inserts on front fenders is correct for a 210. Script in rear fender insert is correct for a 210

The more I look at it, the less I can see!

Bob I just double clicked on it and it opened right up. I'm running goggle chrome. I think it's on your end. Just search out Toyota 2000GT and you'll see the car. The convertible I posted was one of two built for a James Bond movie. All totaled Toyota only built 351 of them n 1966-70. The car was a collaboration between Toyota and Yamaha with Yamaha actually building the car. One sold recently for 1.2 million. I really haven't found a definitive answer as why so few were built. They were relatively expensive for the time. Road & Track magazine summed up the car as "one of the most exciting and enjoyable cars we've driven", and compared it favorably to the Porsche 911. I personally believe the car was built just to prove they could. A very stylish car for its time that holds up well today.

ericnova72 Interesting, I never knew it existed....very much reminds me of the Ferrari 250 GTO, especially from the firewall back and from the rear.
Looks a little goofy when the headlights are up, should have just decided one version of lights or the other instead of both IMO....wish they had sold it more mainstream like a Datsun 240Z so it would be available to the average guy.
