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 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.
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.
Celica - growing our range in 2022 will be a core focus.
