The upper car, I assume is a concept. It has very Maserati-esque lines

It was a half-scale concept model.

I can imagine what kind of buzz this car generated at that first show, every photo you show us from that show has a large crowd around the car. It would have been very cool to be in that crowd seeing it for the first time. The hostess in the background looks very lonely.

Morita san has long been working on a new MOTOR Magazine 'mook', finally released on 24th October, and weighing in at just under 1kg. You'll see lots of never-seen-before photos and the usual high production and editorial values of MOTOR Magazine. Text is mostly Japanese, but the photos are in English. Heartily recommended!

where can I get hold of a copy Alan?

I will put aside a spare copy for you here.

I made a small contribution to the content, so I've got some to give away to friends and family.

Ordered a copy this afternoon before I saw your post.  But tip of the hat to you, Alan!

A couple of photos from my collection.  Alan, the 2000 GT is labeled as a 1971 (handwritten on the back), but I think that's an error and it was actually from the 1969 show.  It seems to be the same model standing next to it as the 432.  Do you agree?1969 Tokyo Auto Show - 432.jpg1969 Tokyo Auto Show - 2000 GT.jpg?

Hi Mike,

Great shots! I have not seen those before.

Yes, I would agree that the Skyline 2000GT (GC10) shot is certainly from the 1969 show, as the Nissan show hostess uniforms changed every year. That's definitely the 1969 type show uniform and - indeed - the same young lady in both shots.
