To celebrate their 500,000th production unit in the country since 1989, Toyota Motor Philippines (TMP) launched the search for the earliest locally-manufactured Toyota vehicle back in March 2012 called the “Classic Toyota Hunt.”
The mechanics were simple. Simply present your oldest locally-produced Toyota in your nearest Toyota Dealership and stand to win a brand new Innova. Of course, vehicles must be in running condition to qualify, and its engine, body, and chassis must be original, not modified and tampered with. And after the searching the entire nation, Mr. Anthony G. Chengliong and his 1989 Toyota Crown Deluxe emerged as the winner.
