Interesting find Alex. Craftsmanship like this is hard to find now.

I didn't realise that the Toyota 2000GT from the 1967 Bond film "You Only Live Twice" was never commercially available as a convertible. Apparently Sean Connery was too tall to fit into the coupe version so Toyota built two specially for the film.
