1969 Coaster looks new – be­cause it is

Yorkshire Post - Motoring - - NEWS -

THIS Toy­ota Coaster may look like the minibus that was first in­tro­duced in 1969 but, in fact, the paint is barely dry. A team of Toy­ota tech­ni­cians scoured old store­houses and even scav­enged scrap metal from around Ja­pan to build it, all in the name of her­itage. Rusted pan­els were pol­ished up and dam­aged parts were re­pro­duced from orig­i­nal draw­ings. Mod­ern ver­sions can be seen to­day from Hong Kong and China to Bo­livia and Panama.
