Toyota 1600GT Model RT55
As the trend that took small family cars to a sportier level also began to encroach into the 1600 cc class, Toyota responded by releasing the 1600GT. Equipped with the 9R DOHC engine, the Corona Hardtop-based sports coupe achieved a top speed of 175 km/h. Though small in size, it had a comfortable interior. Featuring the same 5-speed transmission as the Toyota 2000GT (4-speed transmission was also available), the 1600GT enjoyed great popularity as a truly high-performing touring car.
