Nicely done...1997 is that the year of the kit, or the car?

This Century body style was built (with only minor changes) between 1967 and 1996/1997. In 1997 a totally new Century body was released.

This bodystyle of Century was produced from 1967 to 1997 by Toyota with minor updates. a

Aoshima seldom tells years of their kitted cars. 1997 is my guess, based on large headlights and modern interior parts.

Very nice job, looks clean,clean,clean.....Didn't know Toyota made good looking cars. Guess they did back then, but they sure make boring stuff now.

Your model makes that marque look like class...WELL DONE

Okay, I have been looking at that kit for a while...and, I love the style you built it in, so, now I don't need to build one:)

That is really cool. I like this build a lot.

Thank you all for your kind words.

Those wire wheels and white walls were indeed ment to be a surprising and traditional element on this model.
