Toyota Heritage's Sway Bar Range Continues to Grow

The range of sway bars available from Toyota Heritage continues to grow on the back of sales around the globe to a diverse range of customers.

It all started with making some sway bars for a customers Toyota Yaris GR-Four and whether our competitors like to admit it or not, Toyota Heritage were in fact globally the first to market with sway bars for the GR Yaris. The sway bars that we offer for the GR Yaris are not only available in the largest range of bar diameter but are also three way adjustable and we sell them as complete kits. Powder coated finish and integrated lateral locks help complete a truly unique offering for GR Yaris owners.

Sales of Toyota Heritage's GR Yaris sway bars have been across a very diverse range of customers. Initially our bars had been sold to a few existing customers who are local to us here in South East Queensland. But after these initial few sales some overseas enquiries started. Before we knew it Toyota Heritage was selling sway bar kits to customers competing in Scandinavian rally, European circuit racing and Japanese motorkana. Over the last six months Toyota Heritage also added a Targa Tasmania competitor to its list of GR Yaris owners sporting Toyota Heritage sway bars too.

Toyota Heritage Sway Bar Full Car Kit for Toyota Yaris GR-Four

For Toyota Heritage meeting the needs of this diverse range of customers is all part of the joy of what we do. But like all businesses the last two years have presented many challenges with supply-chain disruptions related to covid 19 and local flood events here in South East Queensland. Our sway bar production and supply had been one of the hardest product lines hit by supply-chain disruption and thankfully all our customers have backed us through these tough times and been ultra patient in waiting through delays to get their sway bars. Toyota Heritage can't thank its customers enough for their loyalty and willingness to be patient.  

 

Like all our product lines here at Toyota Heritage the sales of GR Yaris sway bars opened up discussions with owners and enthusiasts of other Toyota models. Now well into calendar year 2022 and with supply chain disruption easing, Toyota Heritage has completed its R&D for sway bars to suit a few other Toyota models.

The first sway bars to be added to the range in our online store are for some very popular models including:

SW20 MR2 - https://www.toyotaheritage.com/index.php/parts-shop/mr2/mr2-w20/267-mr2-sw20-front-sway-bar-kit (rear bar also available in separate listing)

Toyota Heritage also has been developing sway bars for a number of other models, and will look to release these to market in the coming months between now and the end of 2022. These will cater to some of the popular Toyota models yet again but are also those that we have been working with fellow enthusiasts to develop. All our new products will continue to deliver greater value over competitor's bars and will be finished to Toyota Heritage's regular high standards.

Toyota Heritage help complete the fine details on a TA22 Celica

Here at Toyota Heritage we believe its the fine detail stuff that makes a big difference in the restoration of your Toyota project - it makes your car complete and neat. Our customer Steve who lives in Tasmania (Australia) tends to agree and last year purchased an 'under bonnet' decal and also was one our earliest customers to take up our service offering for refurbishment of cam covers.

Steve's car is the beautiful little 1973 TA22 Toyota Celica you see before you here. Dressed us with some GT steelies (wheels) and bonnet vents you can tell Steve loves the fine details. Steve installed his refurbished cam cover earlier this year and has sent us some great shots of his TA22 Toyota Celica and the parts he purchased from us. Seen here in a close shot, Steve's refurbished cam cover looks a treat in a wrinkle finish black matte. Steve says he is pleased with the finish and we think its a great fit with the rest of the work Steve has done on his beautiful TA22 Toyota Celica.

Refurbished 2TG cam cover (aka engine cover) helps finish off Steve's engine bay in his TA22 Celica.

The Toyota Heritage exchange cam cover service can finish off any cam cover in any colour but we do tend to like the traditional matte black wrinkle and flame red finishes. Owners are required to ship their original cam cover to Toyota Heritage to get the process rolling. Sometimes we have a cam cover already complete and meets the customers requirements, but if we don't its about a 28 day turnaround. To date we've mostly done 2TG and 18RG covers and the odd 3SGE and 4AGE, but are able to do most any. 

Steve was also one of the early buyers of our 2T-G 2T-GR valve clearance decals (only  a few are left as these have been popular). Like so many of our customers who purchase our under bonnet (hood) decals Steve is most satisfied with how it too compliments his build on his TA22 Toyota Celica. When we reproduced these decals we spent a lot of time ensuring that the Japanese characters were all correct along with the fonts, pitch and spacing and of course the foil material. This has paid off for customers like Steve who's car is now looking splendid with such fine detail added.

Toyota Heritage moulded carpets help complete a beautiful MS75 Coupe

In the last half of 2021 we received an email from Bertrand in France who was in need of a moulded carpet for his beautiful MS75 Crown coupe. After having paid another vendor who never delivered the purchased carpet to Bertrand he had become a tad despondent. Then after being supplied a moulded carpet from Toyota Heritage, Bertrand has joined the ranks of our many happy customers. 

Bertrand had been noticing the Toyota Heritage posts on Facebook that had been shared to various Crown pages that he follows. In reaching out to Toyota Heritage Bertrand was seeking a vendor who could deliver a left hand drive moulded carpet  - make it and get it to him in France. 

279027542 4

Moulded carpet from Toyota Heritage - on arrival at Bertrand's address.

Putting aside that we like to help all Toyota enthusiasts we could sense that Bertrand's experience with our competing vendor had not only left a bad impression with Bertrand but in fact they had let down Australia. 

initially we had to assure ourselves that the S60 series Crown moulded carpet we make and sell for the sedans and wagons would fit the coupe body. Some amount of internet sleuthing later and a bit of dimension data on the various body types and we knew that we could help.  

279027542 3

Left Hand Drive MS75 Crown coupe moulded carpet - installed in Bertrands beautiful coupe.

The next piece in the puzzle was to work up the left hand drive fitment - again a lot of internet sleuthing down and pics galore we were certain we could make a LHD carpet for Bertrand.

Adding to this story was the fact that where we are located, Brisbane is prone to flooding with heavy seasonal rains...and just as our production schedule had Bertrand's carpet up for production the heavens opened. We had two flood events in our part of Brisbane this last summer as a result. Poor Bertrand was waiting patiently for his moulded carpet though. Finally we had it all made, packaged and shipped to Bertrand.

279027542 5

Traditional type underlay chosen by Bertrand - works well with our moulded carpets as does other matting types.

Bertrand has now fitted his moulded carpet from Toyota Heritage and says it fits prefectly. Sharing some pics via his own Facebook page we can see that Betrand has used a traditional underlay and been able to fit the carpet with ease. With a new moulded carpet no doubt Bertrand's MS75 feels complete - because new carpets always make a car feel complete but also because this has been one long journey to reach this point.

279027542 6

A perfect fit for Bertrand and Toyota Heritage!

Ignition Leads for your Toyota

We assume that most owners of vintage and classic model Toyota vehicles already know that the largest manufacturers of ignition leads progressively cut their catalogues each year and sadly with this comes the challenge for owners to keep their cars on the road or track. Further impacting catalogues, and as much as we like EV conversions, is the threat to ignition lead manufacture that EV's bring (ie they don't need ignition leads).

With this is mind Toyota Heritage is working hard to develop its catalogue of ignition leads (and related ancillary parts). Over the last month we have listed some of the kits that we now make available to enthusiasts of older Toyota vehicles that have a four cylinder petrol power plant.

First up we listed in our online store ignition leads that suit vehicles sporting 3SGE engines. This also includes models such as the Toyota Celica GT-Four variants of the ST165, ST185 and ST205.

Our core objective here is to ensure that the ignition lead kits we offer provide the correct length of lead and the correct plug tube cups and distributor cups. All our leads are fitted with 1300 ohms per metre Ferrite Spiral Core conductor which by induction design delivers peak voltage to the plugs ensuring almost complete combustion for super quick starts and smooth running. Our leads are tested to ISO 3808 Standards.

BNE Flooded Feb 2022 3

TH74577 ignition lead kits - for all models in the T180 series Toyota Celica and also some variants of the Toyota MR2 SW20.

We are currently working our way into the models that are powered by 4AGE and some of its variants. We are also commencing work for providing kits of basically all petrol engine Toyota models including those powered by six cylinder and V8 engines. There is a lot of ground to cover for this project as you may suspect, but its a labour of love for us here at Toyota Heritage. There may be some period where we list a kit in our store without a product photo and we ask you, our valued customers, to bear with us while we work through the processes that get a fully photographed listing up and running in our store.

In conjunction with our ignition lead catalogue project we are also developing a range of reproduction lead clips to hold your leads in the correct manner as per the OEM design. We had done some work in this area some time ago and its a pleasure to be picking it up again and running this smaller scale project in parallel to the leads. 

We are also happy to hear from any customers who are struggling to find their vehicle's ignition lead set in the market place. We can't promise miracles but our rapport with the OEM means that we can virtually source and supply a kit for most any Toyota model.

New Dash Fascia for your Toyota MR2 SW20

Second generation Toyota MR2 owners, rejoice - your dash is now being reproduced to accommodate a whole range of performance and EV instrument clusters !

Here at Toyota Heritage we recognise the diverse range of use that our customers have for their chosen Toyota model.  The Toyota Heritage moto of "Love one - Love all" reflects this as we truly love all the ways in which our customers use their car.

In keeping with this moto and developing products to cater for a wide range of application we here at Toyota Heritage are very excited about the some additional reproduction dash fascia's we will be making and selling this month.

The second generation Toyota MR2 (SW20 and SW21) is one of the first Toyota models that comes to mind when we think about diverse use. As you and many others have seen that are used in many track applications, dry lake competition, rallying, restoration, daily driver and USA based EV Conversion specialist also provides a kit for BEV conversion of the SW20. 

Similar to other models for which we are making dash fascia's for, it all starts with making a basic blank model dash fascia. From this Toyota Heritage can configure and manufacture a dash that is essentially bespoke. Not only can we change out the instrument cluster from factory gauges to digital performance instrumentation such as Haltech but we can also swap in almost any unit including those suited to BEV conversion. 

BNE Flooded Feb 2022 3

The 'blank' model - makes most any application of our second generation Toyota MR2 dash fascia possible.

We are still working at catering for a wide range of finishes on these dash fascias.  Carbon fibre, matte black and silver are all possible, and if you wanted something altogether different perhaps even a woodgrain finish is possible too. Let us know what floats your boat. 

Toyota Heritage is busy working away on reproduction dash fascia's for other Toyota models too. We're happy to hear from customers who may have another model in mind with a particular application too. Keep watching here in Latest News and also follow us on Facebook for more details.

The Toyota Heritage second generation Toyota MR2 SW20 reproduction dash fascia will be listed in our online store soon.

New Dash Fascia for your E30 E50 series Corolla

Third generation Toyota Corolla and Sprinter owners, the world is your oyster!

Here at Toyota Heritage we recognise the diverse range of use that our customers have for their chosen Toyota model.  The Toyota Heritage moto of "Love one - Love all" reflects this as we truly love all the ways in which our customers use their car.

In keeping with this moto and developing products to cater for a wide range of application we here at Toyota Heritage are very excited about the reproduction dash fascia's we will be making and selling soon.

The humble third generation Corolla is perhaps one of the most diversely used Toyota models we can think of. We have seen them used in many track applications, dry lake competition, rallying, restoration, daily driver and whilst we haven't seen one yet they are also an ideal candidate for BEV conversions. 

It all starts with making a basic blank model dash fascia. From this Toyota Heritage can configure and manufacture a dash that is essentially bespoke. Not only can we change out the instrument cluster from factory gauges to digital performance instrumentation such as Haltech but we can also swap in almost any unit including those suited to BEV conversion.

HVAC vents can also be deleted if you are looking to reduce weight! We can also modify the power socket from the old school style cigarette lighter to a modern double USB socket with cover. 

Work is also underway for options on the finish of your dash fascia.  Woodgrain, carbon fibre, matte black and silver are all possible. Let us know what floats your boat. 

Toyota Heritage is busy working away on reproduction dash fascia's for other Toyota models too. We're happy to hear from customers who may have another model in mind with a particular application too. Keep watching here in Latest News and also follow us on Facebook for more details.

Brisbane Floods - An Update from Toyota Heritage

Many of you will by now have seen on television news some footage of the devastation caused by unrelenting rain and resulting flooding in South East Queensland ('SEQ') Australia. Toyota Heritage is located in Brisbane Australia, which is the capital city of Queensland and is situated smack in the middle of SEQ.

The good news is that by the Grace of God our business nor our homes have been directly impacted by the rain or flood waters. All of our people are safe and dry! This is certainly not the case for many other people across SEQ. Many businesses have been flooded and sadly seven lives have been lost. Out thoughts and prayers are with the people who have lost family or friends, and also with those businesses that have been impacted by the rain or flood waters.

BNE floods Feb 2022 2

On the Sunshine Coast a young mother lost her Corolla to the flood waters - the local community have banded together to help her replace the car.

Toyota Heritage's business will be interrupted though. We will work hard to minimise the interruption. Access to our production facilities is currently severed by flood waters across major roads. Public transport has been halted and freight transport whilst still operating is doing so under constraints. Staff wise, we are in fact 'locked in' our suburb by a moat like circle of flood water that is across the only two routes in and out of our wonderful little semi-rural patch of Brisbane.  

BNE Flooded Feb 2022 3

The saying is 'if its flooded forget it' - the QLD Police closed roads progressively as flood waters were rising.

We anticipate that we will be able to get our suppliers and production facilities at least by end of the week. Current orders and new orders over the next two weeks will most likely to take longer than our standard terms 28 days.

You can still purchase from our online store though. We just ask that our valued customers understand the current operating environment for Toyota Heritage now has an additional set of challenges. This will pass and we will get back to business as usual as soon as we can.

Happy Customer in the UK - moulded carpet A20 Celica

Toyota Heritage's moulded carpets are selling to a global customer base.  Most popular have been moulded carpets for first generation (A20 series) Toyota Celicas closely followed by the fourth generation (S60 series) Toyota Crown. 

With Toyota Heritage's range being available in 18 colours for the first generation Celica and covering both wheel base lengths this not surprising .

Mick who lives in the UK recently ordered a moulded carpet for his RA28 Celica in black and in a plush pile. The photos below are of Mick's initial test fit.  As you can see Mick has used an underlay, which no doubt will add to the ride comfort of his RA28 and is something that Toyota Heritage would also recommend. 

 Although Mick is yet to fully install his moulded carpet in his RA28 Toyota Celica he says that the fit is good and he's happy with the fit.

Seemed edge - fits nicely to the floor shape and where it should be for a faithful resto.

We think that Mick's paint work looks superb (from what we can see of it) and we here at Toyota Heritage are not only looking forward to hearing from Mick once final installation of the moulded carpet has taken place, but we'd also love to see some more photos of his RA28 Toyota Celica once restoration is completed.

Thank you to Mick - not only do we love to hear from happy customers but also for supplying pics of the test fit of the moulded carpet.

All Japanese Day Sunday 27th February- Toyota Heritage will be there! (2)

Not long now until the All Japanese Day is going to be held at Earnshaw State College, here in Brisbane (Australia) - Sunday 27th February is marked in our calendars here at Toyota Heritage and the alarms are already set for the early morning start.

The All Japanese Day is a great day for car enthusiasts of all makes and models, but of course especially those who love Japanese vintage and classic cars. Its generally a great family day out too with a few food vendors, especially a coffee cart and BBQ delights, but overall its the weather we have here in Brisbane during February that makes this event a summer sensation. With an early start the All Japanese Day can even by a stop and drop with enough time left in your Sunday to make your way up to our 'to die for' Queensland beaches on the Sunshine Coast!

At the last event that Toyota Heritage attended there was an estimated 1200 cars on the Earnshaw State College sports oval - I think no other car show event here in QLD possobly has such a turn out. We certainly had a hoot seeing all the wonderful and great models that Toyota have built over the years and what the competing marques have also produced - but it was meeting and speaking with our customers that we enjoyed the most!

Toyota Heritage will have a marquee set-up so you can chat with us out of the sun. We will also have a table full of Toyota Heritage reproduction parts as well as some of the OEM parts that we have in our store at present. We will also have a couple of customer's cars with us (hoping to have Zac's wonderful SW20 once again).

We know we have been hard to contact over the last six to eight months, so this is a great chance to meet us, get to know the folks behind the Toyota Heritage business and ask about our spare parts - we certainly look forward to seeing you there!

Left Hand Drive Floor Mats for Classic and Vintage Toyota Models

Toyota Heritage may be based in Australia but it certainly has a great relationship with North America, South America and Europe.  Not to leave our valued customers in the countries in these regions Toyota Heritage has started to build its left hand drive (LHD) carpet floor mat range.

The first set of LHD mats that Toyota Heritage produces was for the JZA80 Toyota Supra. We did this a few months ago and since then many sets of LHD mats have been exported to customers in Canada, USA and Europe. We got the call up from a customer in the USA who had purchased some of our OEM parts, and they were keen for our quality plush pile mats with non-slip foam backing.  It took Toyota Heritage about a week to get the floor pattern sorted and then the mats were made and shipped.

Its always an interesting dynamic after we make a reproduction part for the JZA80 Toyota Supra - its usually not long after that we are asked by a customer in the AE86 community to produce a part - and this time was no exception either. A week after exporting the floor mats for the JZA80 Toyota Supra we received an email asking for AE86 Toyota Corolla Sprinter floor mats to suit LHD.

 Toyota Heritage's left hand drive floor mats for the AE86 Toyota Corolla Sprinter have been popular in a loop pile with buyers so far. Some of the colours that match up nicely with the OEM interior trim of the AE86 Toyota Corolla Sprinter include Sprindrift, Brown and Burgundy. These will also fit the earlier AE85 Toyota Corolla Sprinter and can be complimented ever so nicely with one of Toyota Heritage's trunk mats for the AE86 Toyota Corolla Sprinter.

Being an owner of an a ZZW30 Toyota MR2 Spyder and being on many of the MR2 forums it wasn't long before some customers joined the dots with our floor mat range and started asking Toyota Heritage if we can produce LHD floor mats for what is known as the ZZW30 Toyota MRS in many of the LHD countries. We have made these mats but are yet to list in our store. AW11 owners were also quick to follow and ask for their mats to be made - we now also have LHD mats for the AW11 Toyota MR2 in our range also.

So what's next for Toyota Heritage's range of LHD floor mats for classic and vintage Toyota vehicles? We're working on bringing to market LHD floor mats over the next six months for:

  • Celica - A40, A50, T160 and T180 series
  • Supra - A60 and A70 series
  • Land Cruiser - J60 series 

We are truly looking forward to working with customers in the Americas and Europe (and Middle East too) to bring these floor mats to market for LHD vehicles.

Happy New Year and Welcome to 2022

BNE NYE

Welcome to 2022, the team here at Toyota Heritage trust that you have had a wonderful festive season. Making 2022 better is common theme for many folks and here at Toyota Heritage we are truly hoping that we can assist you in this regard.

Hopefully over the festive season you have had time to draw breath and consider what 2022 will mean for your project or keeping your 'pride and joy' on spec. Planning is part of the fun for cars needing restoration and our online store is a great place to get ideas and work out what you need. During 2022 we will be adding many new products to our range and will also be continuing to update our website to make your restoration planning easier.

Toyota Heritage understands that sometimes its the little things that make such a difference to a restoration or simply maintaining a classic or even a daily drive. Our range of fasteners and clips reflect this understanding and the range will certainly grow over the next 12 months. New clips and fasteners will continue to be made to the same OEM and European standards as those we have available already.

 

Toyota GR Yaris snow

Clips and fasteners - the ever expanding range will continue to expand at Toyota Heritage during 2022.

 

 

We have already started listing some of the newly available sway bars in our store, albeit we haven't had time to gather up some marketing photos. Recently listed in our store are sway bars for cars such as the Corolla ZZE122 (rear bar) as well as front and rear sway bars for the JZA80 Supra. As soon as we set-up a page for the GT86 and  Aurion we will also be listing sway bars for these wonderful cars too.

Work will continue on expanding the Toyota Heritage floor mat range using the vast number of patterns we have developed over the festive season (yes we were as busy as Santa's elves). The expanding range will see mats become available for some of the earliest models that Toyota produced as well as modern classics.

 No product photo image Copy

Don't worry of you see this pic on a listing - we have the parts and just haven't found time to do the marketing pics!

We have also stock piled a heap of badges here that we plan to tool up from in 2022. Badge work has a long development period and takes a lot of financial resources to bring more to market but we are hopeful with much of the covid related material supply issues behind us, that we can ultimately bring more of the 'bling' your car deserves to market this year.

Customers who have been with us for many years will know that a core part of what we bring to market has been lenses and other plastic trim items. 2022 will be no different in this regard and with some investment in additional equipment we are hoping to expedite some of the parts that many customers have been waiting for over the past year or so.

Time permitting, we hope to also tackle a few of our own projects! There's two MS45B Crown sedans and there is of course the RA40GT Celica race car project. But more than anything we are looking forward to having the KE17 Sprinter back on the track in 2022. 

We truly look forward to being of service to our customers and seeing some of you at various events in 2022 - This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Merry Christmas and Thank you to our Valued Customers

Merry Christmas to all and a big thank you to our valued customers who have supported Toyota Heritage during 2021.

In a Dickens type year, like he says in David Copperfield, it was the best of times and the worst of times as Covid played merry hell on material supply and freight services. But despite Covid impacts we gained many new customers, our product range grew and so did our business. We can not thank our customers enough - many have of you endured long waits for parts to be made and then shipped. Your patience with us was very much appreciated.

 

Toyota GR Yaris snow

Toyota GRFour Yaris (aka GR Yaris) parts started production and retail in 2021 for Toyota Heritage.

 

 

Our business started to grow early in 2021 with the advent of parts for the GRFour Yaris (aka GR Yaris). Being one of the first businesses to bring to market a range of floor mats for these wonderful cars started a real love affair for Toyota Heritage with the GRFour Yaris. Being able to offer adjustable sway bars in custom sizing was also another of our 'first to market' products. Since then our bars have been exported for use by ice rally and motorkhana teams overseas as well as local buyers here in Australia.

Our sway bar range will expand in 2022 to include some interesting models such as the S40 series Toyota Crown.

Making mats and also moulded carpets was a core focus for us in the second half of 2021. This endeavour was brought together with the help of many friends and family members as we sought OEM mats to develop our patterns. As a result we probably now offer the most diverse range of mats and carpets in the world for Toyota models. And our mats range will continue to expand in 2022! Mats for models such as GR86 and Hilux will be part of our 2022 line up.

 Toyota Hilux Snow

Hilux - looking to expand our range of parts in 2022

During 2021 Toyota Heritage commenced supply of OEM spec clips and fasteners. The initial focus had been on clips and fasteners for MR2, Celica and Supra but with other products being launched for other models such as Prado and 100 Series Land Cruiser, we decided that Toyota Heritage would look at supplying as many different clips and fasteners to suit as many models as possible. So during 2022 we will expand this range too and are looking to put together 'resto packs' with the various clips and fasteners required for a given model.

Toyota Heritage's online store will be open throughout Christmas and the Festive Season. We will dispatch any orders for parts we already have on hand but our made to order parts are likely to take longer than our standard 28 day period to dispatch.

Again we express our thanks to all our customers in 2021 and wish you all a very Merry Christmas and the compliments of the Festive Season - This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Over the last quarter our floor mat range grew and now covers a wide range of Toyota vehicles. It will grow further in 2022 too.

Material supply issues dogged us all year with the manufacture of our plastic and rubber parts as well as our sway bars. So we put a tonne of effort in the last quarter to focus on our floor mat range where material supply issues were not a problem and they can be made right here in Brisbane.

Our floor mat range all started earlier in the year as we first made mats for the Toyota GR Yaris. On the back of these being launched we got asked by owners of other Toyota models such as Celica, Land Cruiser, Supra, Corolla and MR2 to also make and supply mats for their cars. The owners were keen for mats to suit the passenger cabin and boot (aka trunk) areas in a whole range of colours.

Above and below: it all started with mats for the Toyota GRFour Yaris (aka GR Yaris).

So the quest began in earnest around August in locating various Celica, Land Cruiser, Corolla, Supra, Prado, Yaris and MR2 models. Wherever possible Toyota Heritage sought OEM factory mats to get the proper shape to fit the floor or boot (trunk) space.

By September we had lined up a number of Toyota models and in most cases their respective OEM mats. Work then began on getting mats made, and this is now an ongoing project with new mats being released each week.

By the time we have all sung Auld Lang Syne, welcomed in 2022 and recovered from a hang over, the Toyota Heritage range of floor mats will include:

Supra

  • JZA80
  • MA45

Celica

  • Second generation A40 series - sedan and lift back
  • Fifth generation T180 series 
  • Sixth generation T200 series 
  • Seventh generation T230 series

 MR2

  • AW11
  • SW20
  • ZZW30

Yaris 

  • GR Four 
  • Yaris Cross (XP210 series)
  • XP90 series

 But wait there's more, as Tim Shaw used to say:

Corolla:

  • First generation - all E10 series 
  • Fifth generation - AE86 / AE85 and AE82 FXGT
  • Ninth generation - E120 E130 series hatch backs
  • Tenth generation - E140 E150 series hatch backs
  • Eleventh generation - E170 E180 series hatch backs.

Caldina:

  • Second generation T210 series

Prado:

  • Second generation J90 series LWB Wagons

Land Cruiser

  • J60 series
  • J100 series, including the rear door board

 All our mats are available in any of the fourteen colours Toyota Heritage offers and are now backed by our premium pink foam rubber that gives superior underfoot comfort on long drives and a non slip surface to keep your mats in place.

The first Blue mats we made will find their way into a Paul Walker Fast & Furious tribute JZA80 Supra Aero Top. We have also used the blue, but with grey edge binding to add to the OEM feel of the J90 Prado mats.

In early 2022 we will be listing our J60 Land Cruiser floor mats. For the first set we have produced them in Chestnut which is a perfect match the brown beige interiors of these wonderful Land Cruisers from the 1980's.

Also into 2022 Toyota Heritage will add a feature to its listings that will allow the customer to select the edge binding colour and also if they want to include a heel mat.

We intend to keep building the range. Any customers who are keen to assist can contact Toyota Heritage via email - This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Floor mats for your GR Yaris - coming soon to Toyota Heritage

Toyota GR Yaris owners rejoice - Toyota Heritage is completing a range of mats to cover all floor areas of your GR Yaris.

It all started for us with trying to get some decent floor mats at a reasonable price. But then we realised nearly every owner of a GR Yaris will be needing floor mats that are versatile and look the part.

Available already are our carpet floor mats for your Toyota GR Yaris (pictured). Toyota Heritage is also in the process of working up a design for a rear cargo area (boot/trunk) carpet mat that can remain installed when the rear seat of your GR Yaris is in the upright position or when folded down. Toyota Heritage is testing this design on one of the team's very own GR Yaris.

 For customers who have to battle with salt, snow, sand or mud  we also have in the pipeline for Toyota GR Yaris owners rubber mats that are deep enough to catch everything and keep your GR Yaris carpets wonderful. Ideal for northern hemisphere owners and alpine region Aussies and Kiwis no doubt.

Toyota Heritage's mats for the GR Yaris will be available in August 2021 and will be available with either a black or red edging and have anchors to hold them in place.

Can't wait till August - email Toyota Heritage now to pre-order your mats This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Custom Sway Bars for your Toyota GR Yaris from Toyota Heritage

Blog 1 Copy

  

 Gazoo Racing's GRFour Yaris (GXPA16), also known simply as the GR Yaris, is one of the hottest cars to hit the streets in the last 12 months. Toyota Heritage were very lucky to be involved with one of the very first cars to arrive on the East Coast and started making plans for production of sway bars immediately. 

GR Yaris sway bars are one of the newest products to join the many that Toyota Heritage already offers the Toyota enthusiast.

Once Toyota Heritage had a GR Yaris available and could get it up on the hoist the DNA of Toyota AWD was imediately apparent. The GR Yaris factory sway bars were measured up and assessment was made as to how easy it would be for GR Yaris enthusiasts to undertake a sway bar swap out at home. Toyota Heritage could see that the GR Yaris rear bar would be a realtively easy affair, and could be done with simply taking off the rear wheels and lowering the exhaust. The rear sway bar also can be fitted using the factory supplied links from Toyota. The front sway bar on the GR Yaris would need the sub-frame lowered though.

The sway bars were then taken into the Toyota Heritage workshop where some baseline testing was undertaken to assess the torsional rigidity of the GR Yaris factory bars (nb not Rallye Pack bars). This process essentially requires the GR Yaris sway bars to be braced in a special test rig and a standardised suspended weight applied to one end. Several tests must be undertaken to get a good data set of the torsional movement of the bar end.

After the first Toyota Hertage GR Yaris sway bars were produced they were also taken into the Toyota Heritage workshop and were also rigged-up and tested in the same fashion as the factory GR Yaris sway bars. Toyota Heritage parametric tested its 22mm rear GR Yaris sway bars along with its 22mm and 24mm front GR Yaris sway bars in this early phase of development.

The results were most interesting. Toyota Heritage's standard GR Yaris front and rear bar package, which is ideal for street and track use, provides increased torsional stiffness of 15% to 30% (22mm rear) and -20% to 15% (24mm front) over factory sized bars.

Perhaps the best thing about Toyota Heritage's GR Yaris sway bars is that the customer can select any size for front or rear starting from 18mm and going up in 1mm increments to 24mm diameter. Then for the serious GR Yaris owner Toyota Heritage can also offer bar thickness beyond 24mm diameter. Already a number of 25mm rear bars have been sold but so too have 18mm rear bars. If red is not your preferred colour then Toyota Heritage can also powder coat its GR Yaris sway bars in a colour of your choice. Its all down to the GR Yaris owners preference and diring style but there is certainly a sway bar size available from Toyota Heritage that suits most any application from Motorkana to Rally to Track.

 Toyota Heritage GR Yaris sway bars are Australian made, three-way adjustable and powder coated to the highest standards, and come complete with bushes, brackets, links and lateral locks.
