The Toyota Automobile Museum has over 400 historic vehicles in its storehouse, not counting the 140 vehicles permanently displayed at the Automobile Gallery. In the upcoming exhibition titled the “Okuradashi-Ten” (Storehouse Exhibition), 13 rare vehicles will be displayed out of the 400 or so that are not on permanent view despite their unique significance.

The exhibits are grouped into five sections by theme, including Japanese and European cars for the public from six decades ago; legendary sports cars from Japan, Europe, and the U.S. in the 1960s–1970s; a commuter bus used to transport athletes in the 1964 Tokyo Olympics; and Japanese cars built exclusively for overseas markets. Some of these vehicles attract a large crowd whenever they are put on show, while a few others have never been presented to visitors before. We hope you will enjoy seeing these special vehicles, representing different times and places.
