“This 1969 Toyota Sports 800 roadster project is presented as a restoration candidate that comes from 40 years of garage-kept ownership,” AutoHunter notes in the listing. “This Japanese-built Sports 800 is a left-hand-drive example, one of 300 produced within the total 3,101-unit production run over the model’s lifespan.”
Under the hood is a period-correct air-cooled 790cc boxer 2-cylinder engine with dual carburetors and the vehicle has been largely parked since 1987.
The engine is paired with a r-speed manual transmission and power flows through the rear wheels.
The car has a blue exterior, with a removable aluminum targa top, and is described as restoration ready with its original paint.
This Toyota retains its original black-and-white plaid-vinyl bucket seats. It also features a push-button radio and a passenger-side grab handle.
The sale of this vehicle includes a targa top, tonneau cover, uninstalled wheel covers, copies of service manuals, and a spare tire.
The auction for this 1969 Toyota Sports 800 project ends on December 16 at 11:40 a.m. MST. The vehicle has a clear Indiana title in the seller’s name.
