Group A list Sun, 31 October 2004 07:06 Go to next message
Hi all,

I'm starting a list/registry to keep track of all the Group A GT4's in Australia. Once complete (if possible) I will have information on every one brought into the country and where it is now. At the moment I'm only looking at original Aus spec ones.

Current things I'm looking at recording are:
Number eg. 069 - mine Cool
Original Color
Current Color
Date Manufactured
Original owner (off plate)
Current owner
Owner history (maybe ie. how many)
Location
Email Address/web site
Forums frequented (maybe)
Approx k's done
Current condition (showroom down to wrecked Crying or Very Sad )
Mods (there's a big one)
Stereo
Rego no.
For sale?
Value

Anything I've missed? Of course when I put the info up on the net some of these fields won't be included unless specified by the owner. Not sure what someone could do with a plate number...? Can they find out your address through dept trans?

I'll be looking at posting to other forums to try and spread the word. This isn't something I can really do without help from others so everybody's help is appreciated in gathering information. To start with I'll post the numbers that I've got here (numbers only no details) until I get the whole web site thing happening.

I'm hoping to be able to have pics as well of each and ultimately (now where did I put that damn genie lamp) I'd love to have a reunion of as many as possible at some well planned date in the future.


So what does everyone think? Should I have people email me their details or should I have them post on a forum page for everyone to see? Any other fields I should include not include? website name ideas? something easy to find and remember eg. www.grpalist.com.au Don't know whether it would count as a .com.au domain.

At this stage I just want ideas.

Gary.

For an explanation on the differences between models go here http://gtfour.supras.org.nz/ST185RC%20description. htm Australian Grp A will have Grp A Rallye decals (my avatar) on both sides and rear plus the grey plate in front of the gear stick with the build number and Sainz's signature. The bonnet and front bumper are not a sure fire way to tell anymore. They come standard with ABS and leather steering wheel/gear stick knob.

Actually I bought the car from Sydney 13 months ago, flew down from Brisbane and drove it back the same day. To the best of my knowledge it's never been to Tasmania, of course any info you have to the contrary I'm very interested in.

I think 033 was a targa tasmania competitor. I've lost the bookmark for it so I think it was 033, I have the pics of it but they don't show the number.

Yes I want both ST185 Grp A's and ST205 Grp A's.

Looking on Carsales.com.au there is a ST185 no number listed - wants $22,000 ; and a ST205 white #069 : ) wants $45,000.

I'm sure it was #69 that was in tasmania.
I'll check my email at home as the guy sent me a bunch of pics along with the VIN number and some other details.
From memory it had about 125,000kms on it.

The Group A is slightly different.
The most visible difference is the bonnet (has a big vent instead of a scoop).
They were also limited in number and given build numbers (only 150 in Australia).

So what number was that classique71? Is it dead or still running around.

I'm not entirely sure that they brought into australia #001-150 in one big block. Anyone? Has anyone seen or heard of #001? I know I saw one that was in the 3000's back in '98 in a car yard in brisbane. Of course back then I didn't have a clue what I was looking at, I knew what a GT4 was but Grp A not a clue.

I'll edit my first post with a description of what a grp A is so those that don't know can tell.

I've set up a quick 2 old pics on my optus space for those interested in my car. I need to down size some of my 1mb pics so they are web friendly. Check the site in a week or so. For some reason I can't make my frontpage site work with optus.

The GT4 is the basic 4WD, 2L turbocharged vehicle. The Group A is a homologation special which is closer to the actual rally vehicle. Dependant on the model it included turbo antilag (disabled) and water jets for intercooler wetting (disassembled and in the boot for Australian delivery).

To the best of my knowledge, all of the ST205s sold in Australia were Group A's. The ST185s were a mixture. In other markets, the ST185 Group A's were dubbed the 'Carlos Sainz' (or CS).

I'm not able to find any decent links to back this up (on the basis of some quick Googling), so if anyone wants to correct me, feel free. Smile

In Australia they gave them a build number from 1-150... they were not all manufactured or exported in one hit (e.g. VIN isn't ST185-0000001 for build 1, ST185-0000002 for build 2 etc) but they are sequential according to Toyota. (i.e. 001's VIN will be less than 002's VIN)

Overseas the build number is the written as 123 (build number) of 3500 (total number built) so the one spotted in brisbane car yard would have been a personal import from overseas.

Re: Aus build number 1
MOS thinks he "may" own that one... Toyota have a record of the first 80 odd group A's and "should" be able to tell MOS what his build number is.
Like many of the ST185 Group A's MOS's was converted for full rally use and no longer bears the build number badge.

Just been checking out http://www.evilweapon.com/pictures/evlwpn-14.jpg
He's got VIC plates and says it is 331 of 5000. Anybody know this guy? It's just that a couple of things don't add up with the pics I've looked at. My steering wheel has TURBO 4WD in the center, the signature plate with the number is different to mine, he has "celica" in the black plastic strip at the nose of the bonnet (implying pre sept 91). Did they change things in 92 or has he just personalised with older celica parts?

A good place to look for group A's would the the gt4 and gt4 v2 mailing lists on yahoo groups, there was quite a few aussies on there last time I was on there.

I can offer my services to build a mySQL/php database if that would make things easier, would just need somewhere to host it. Smile

EDIT: The other thing i forgot to add was that someone tried to do this a few years ago but it never realy got off the ground, I dont know if the site is still up but that might have a few grpA's on it to start you off.

As I said this one (331 of 5000) would be a personal import from overseas.
ALL australian delivered ones had the "Group A Rallye" badging and the build number like all the others you've seen in Australia.

Just found #104 http://www.allwheelmotion.com/nathan.htm

Thanks for the offer Bergerac. I've never set up more than a personal web page so any help is appreciated. I'm willing to pay for the site as long as it doesn't get ridiculously popular Shocked and end up costing a fortune. I've never set up a domain or bought webspace so anyone that can steer me in the right direction would be helpful too.

Dude... someone stole your plates or your car? Shocked

Ok, I do know a couple of people (as mentioned in another thread) who own ST205's and one person who DID own one.

ST205 #36 (white) belongs to Gary Georgiou, and it's basically a bog-stock machine except for a boost controller, external BOV and a custom CAI. There might be more done to it, but I do know that this thing goes like a rocket. Even better with a Jap-spec Blitz-chipped ECU that we tested (shameless plug)... Razz

ST205 #53 belonged to Joe Kingston (aka Boost here on Toymods) whom I spoke with yesterday and he told me about his car that he sold a while back, and that is now apparently just a shell. He thinks it was last spotted in WA, and is interested in buying it back to rebuild. If anyone sees it, please report it here.

Dave McNeill, of Toyota Nationals renown, also owns an ST205 but I don't know much about this one. Never seen it before, except on a video clip I saw of the last Toyota Nationals in Dubbo, on the 1/8th mile strip.

If I hear anything more about ST205's I know where to find this thread. Also FYI, I bought an ST205 Jap import (VIN #8485) as a half cut and turned my RAV4 into a hybrid with it. Very Happy

Well that depends on who you ask - everyone seems to have a different story. Hell, I can't even find a spec sheet on what it used to run without conjecture?!!!

Andrew, yep will forward you a pic.

Toyota Had to make 5000 Group A spec gt4s to compete in the Rally.

A 150 were specially bought out to australia with special carlos sainz badging. The rest of the cars also had special badging but they were in the thousands and had a little black plate in the interior "2254/5000" with carlos sainz signature.

Now the Group A's that were bought to Australia 1-150, I know 001 was written off. I have No.16, as seen in my avatar - show room quality!!. Cool

Ummm, going a little off-topic here, but does anyone who owns a 205 know what that stuff is between the bonnet bracing and the vent mesh? It's white and it's fibrous and that's all I know about it. Anyone know what it's called and where I can get some? I need it for my ride, only I need about DOUBLE the amount (twice the size of the opening). Shocked

Yeah the chrarcteristic vent in the bonnet itself... I think it might be insulation of some sort, but it keeps the water out and at the same time lets hot air escape. Confused

I've been looking at domain names for the list/registry. A couple of available ones are

www.gt4grpa.com
www.grparallye.com
www.grpa.com
www.gtfourgrpa.com

What do you guys think? Any other ideas? I can also add hyphens. It's got to be something easy to find and remember.


gtfour.com gt-four.com st185.com gt4.com are all taken.

Just a suggestion...... www.1of150.com

I also like www.grpa.com cause its short and easy to remember.I know of 3 aussie delivered Group A's that have been written off. One in Sydney, another in Orange and another based in Melbourne which clapped it it out in Targa Tasmainia about 4 years back now. I have no idea what numbers they were Sad

We are a dying breed people. Please donate any money to the Group A fund and save us from extinction Laughing

I just ripped mine of my group A, its like aircondition insulation, like those insulation you put in your room, except with a black cover over them to hold it all together.


I will be glad to help desiging a GT4 Site if you need Hawk. I started one when i was in Grade 11, work in progress Very Happy

Oh and about that evilweapon GT4 - im quite positive that is a Jap Import GT4 - weather it be a personal import or a conversion, that is not a originial Australian Delievered Beast.

Far out Stu, You should have bought a group A in the first place Razz

Does anyone know how fast Justins machine in? 0-100k? roughly 1/4 time?

How fast is your machine Stu with all those mods?

I noticed mine the other day when I saw heat haze rising from it... I'd like to get some sort of matting under there, but I'm not sure if it's the same type of matting that's commonly used as sound-proofing though. Confused

heh - at the time i couldnt afford a group A - they were 9K more than the one i got Smile

Justens uz185 - no idea - but its got ALOT of power to the rear trwads - even at low boost

As for mine - Its fast enough - i still havent raised the boost any further, but should have it running 17-18PSI by the end of the year with an updated dyno/quarter mile figure

I'm now the proud owner of the new domain www.grparallye.com

I don't know how long it will take me to learn everything I need to learn to get it up and running but I'm commited now. I'm looking forward to the challenge and getting the list as complete as I can. I've got a gig of space to play with so expect lots of pics of Grp A's!!!

I'll let you know when it is published...

Sorry to drag up an old thread but I used to work for Toyota WA when the ST185R GT4 Group A was first released in October 1991, and I have managed to find some old paperwork on this model.

I have a list of the 15 first delivered in WA and the other 135 delivered in the rest of Australia.

For the 15 in WA I have this info:

No. Colour Chassis (all JT764STJ5) Engine

85 040 00016142 3S9155914
90 040 00016174 3S9156127
88 202 00016168 3S9155911
87 3E5 00016159 3S9153621
89 3E5 00016170 3S9156128
92 3E5 00016202 3S9155815
50 182 00015841 3S9155235
128 040 00016827 3S9157115
131 040 00016876 3S9157236
129 202 00016852 3S9157484
84 3E5 00016127 3S9155912
134 3E5 00016945 3S9157483
136 3E5 00016998 3S9158244
137 3E5 00017018 3S9158232
138 3E5 00017045 3S9158261

I have the original rego details and selling dealer but I prefer not to publish this info.

As for the other 135 cars I have only the chassis number and the port they were sent too, on thermal fax paper that is badly faded. I might try and post this info at a later date.

Cheers,
Mitch.

The bloke at my local servo owns the one mentioned above from tassie. I know that it was in Targa so it is most likely the one. I'll let him know about this registry list thing next time i'm there.

Trolling through the posts above I came up with this:

Hawk No. 69 Chassis No. 00016002 Delivery Port Darwin (I think?)

Toobs No. 135 Chassis 00016983 Adelaide

Beej No. 93 00016210 Adelaide

Puffy No. 13 00015554 Sydney

GRPA74 No. 74 00016041 Sydney

Sikx5 No. 16 00015581 Sydney

Tooch No. 53 00015863 Melbourne

And for the other mentioned numbers:

No. 1 00014860 Sydney

No. 39 00015768 Sydney

No. 104 00016362 Sydney

Can owners please check that I have their car right or wrong so that I can prove it if I have the correct list or not ? Thanks.
If anyone wants to check a specific St185R Grp A chassis number, let me know.
