1968 Toyota Publica Convertible (UP20S), and Van (UP26V), Plus News

January 19, 2019

The Toyota Publica may not be considered a rare car, but its convertible and van variants are. I've seen just one of each.

The P10/P20 Series Publica was built from Jun 1961 to Apr 1969. This Publica convertible was built in 1968. It has a 697cc flat 2 engine.
