Gazoo Racing to Produce “Heritage Parts” for Third- and Fourth-Generation Supras

Looking for a replacement front emblem for your third-generation Supra? How about a headlamp for a fourth-generation Supra? You can finally close Craigslist and Facebook Marketplace and, instead, get in touch with Gazoo Racing—Toyota's motorsport division—for their GR Heritage Parts Program.

The recently launched program is set to reproduce hard-to-find parts for Toyota sports cars of yesteryear. Starting with mostly cosmetic items for the third- and fourth-generation Supras, Gazoo Racing seem eager to expand the program to meet customer needs with a Reproduction Request Form.

Brands such as BMW and Porsche have legacy programs of their own, and now Toyota has one of their own. Read the press release below:

Toyota announces that it will reproduce spare parts for the A70-*1 and A80-model *2 Supra as GR Heritage Parts Project, and will sell them both domestically and overseas (North America, Europe, etc.).

This project is an initiative that will reproduce spare parts that were no longer available, and sell them as genuine parts, in order for customers who have loved Supra for many years to continue driving them into the future.

Details on the specific parts and sale periods will be announced at later dates on the TOYOTA GAZOO Racing Web site*3. In addition, reproduced parts may be purchased from Toyota dealers in the same way as normal genuine parts.

GR Heritage Parts will be also exhibiting at the TOKYO AUTO SALON 2020 at Makuhari Messe (Mihama-ku, Chiba City) for three days from January 10-12*5, 2020.

*1 Sales period: 1986-1993
*2 Sales period: 1993-2002
*3 See here for details: https://toyotagazooracing.com/gr/heritage/
*4 As of January 9, 2020. Reproduced parts may differ according to areas and model types.
*5 Industry and Press day: 9:00-19:00 (JST), January 10
Public days: 14:00-19:00?JST?, January 10; 9:00-19:00 (JST), January 11; 9:00-18:00 (JST), January 12

Very cool to see these 90s icon receive new part production!

Nissan has a similar program with GTR engine production starting again:

Yeah lots of OEM now going into this business. Can't wait to see some 94-95 MR2 parts new again.  Also would like Honda to do this, so I can have parts for EF and GSRs again.

Looks like Japan is going through what happened in the US after the musclecar era was over: people stopped dropping old stuff just because it was old, and started deep maintenance/restoration, because the automakers didn't make enthusaist cars like that anymore.

 

I mean, if the R34 was available, I probably would have treated R32s as old junk too.

If only Ford would do this for 90s Thunderbirds and Cougars. I know I know, not as revered as the Supra, but c'mon I need a new ABS module.

For the cost of a new abs module from a dealer, you could probably just buy another 90s Thunderbird/cougar.

91 XR7. Early MN12s with ABS (and various other cars of the era including Jaguars and Buicks) use the super crappy and rare Teves MK II system. I guess "ABS module" is not entirely correct, it's the entire ABS system. It's all tied into the brake booster and uses an electric motor to fill an accumulator to pressurize the system. When it goes bad, you not only lose power assist, you also lose the rear brakes and about 30% of your stopping power as a result.

Gotcha. Looks like the only thing I could come up with would be the mounting insulator kit, lol. They did make rebuild/seal kits, but those are discontinued too. 
That assembly would've been about $2500. Though.

All this and no one on the planet makes the removable topper seal for first gen 4Runners. Not one, single, company.
