Gasser Drag Racer and Driver Interview: 1960's Toyota 700 / Publica

September 09, 2015

This UP10 Toyota 700 (Publica in Japan) was quite the surprise upon arrive at Willowbank Raceway. I couldn't believe that I was seeing this car in Australia, nor that it had been turned into full on 10 second drag car.

The P10/P20 Series Publica was built from Jun 1961 to Apr 1969. This Publica Sedan was built in 1964. It has a 5,354cc V8 engine.
