1961 Toyota Fj40 on 2040-cars
paint back to original red
Lewiston, Maine, United States
|This is an antique 1961 Toyota FJ40. This is the second year model for the FJ40. The first 3 yrs are very rare and offer a few unique qualities. I am by no means an expert on these trucks, but do know a little bit about them, so if you have any questions I will do my best to answer them.
The following is the history that I know about the FJ:
I purchased the vehicle 5 yrs ago
The engine, brakes, hubs have all been rebuilt in the past 7yrs
The wiring has been redone in the past 7yrs
I put a seat cover on the bench seat
A new weber carb was installed last year due to the fact I could not find any oem carb repair kits
I am told the weber carb will improve the high end a little bit and give it a little better fuel mileage
The wheels and tires I installed 5yrs ago, the are standard chevy 6 bolt pattern
The suspension was also replaced 6yrs ago and had a shackle lift installed
Original 3spd on the tree was converted to 3spd on the floor for easier shifting which came out of a few yrs newer FJ40
This vehicle has been in my storage facility most of the time I have owned it. I have driven it around town here and there, never on the highway. The frame is completely solid, if I kept it any longer I would probably redo the exterior paint back to original red. The tub over all has some rust here and there, which has been removed and repaired.
This FJ could be a great Father/Son project with mostly cosmetic work needed to be perfect.
I have no problem helping coordinate with your shipper anywhere you wish.
I will accept cashiers check, cash or wire transfer. Total must be received within 7 days of auction end.

Depending on who you ask, the best-selling car in the world is either the Ford Focus or Toyota Corolla. Not surprisingly, Toyota claims it's the Corolla. Either way, we're talking around a million individual units per year, and over 40 million over the car's lifetime on the market, so the redesign of Toyota's compact sedan is big-time news for the Japanese automaker that it needs to get right.

The Toyota Corolla was last redesigned way back in 2008, meaning the 2014 model is a long-overdue update to the C-segment sedan. Its age shows when compared to newer rivals like the Honda Civic, Chevy Cruze, Hyundai Elantra and the aforementioned Ford Focus when comparing technology features, fuel mileage and interior roominess. In an effort to solve those demerits, Toyota has added nearly four inches to the 2014 Corolla's wheelbase and will offer a new continuously variable transmission with seven simulated gear ratios.
Engine choices consist of two available 1.8-liter four-cylinder units, one with 132 horsepower and 128 pound-feet of torque, and another more efficient version that uses Toyota's new Valvematic technology to offer 140 horses and 126 lb-ft of torque. Eco and Sport modes will be selectable by the driver.
Jay Leno takes a step outside of his cavernous garage for this latest video for a jaunt into the desert to get a little dirty. He meets up with off-road racing legend Ivan 'Ironman' Stewart, who has multiple Baja 500 and 1000 wins in his motorsports career, to play with a Toyota Tundra in the sand.

Unfortunately, Leno doesn't get to interview Stewart too deeply about his long history in racing, but Ironman does talk a little bit about reading the trail while speeding through the desert. In lieu of a great conversation, there is a ton of high-quality footage of the Toyota bounding through the desert.
This clip feels more like a marketing effort than the usual output from Jay Leno's Garage, but it's still great to see Stewart behind the wheel sliding a truck, just like old times. The two of them even take the truck on a somewhat humorous journey at the end of the video.
When it debuted last year, the Toyota Camry came in for some criticism over its interior, most centered on material choices - both in quality (not enough) and variety (too much). Thus, Toyota has responded after just one model year, updating both materials and features on its gas-powered and hybrid family sedans for 2013.
The LE version appeared to get the lion's share of the improvements. Specifically, the LE is getting "soft-touch" door materials as well as armrests that match the rest of the interior color (instead of being black). The LE model also gets Toyota's six-inch display screen that helps folks get a better gander at the car's energy usage and fuel economy, among other things. Other changes include adding cross-traffic alert for models equipped with blind spot monitoring
Toyota introduced its latest version of the Camry and Camry Hybrid in the fall of 2011 as a 2012 model. Sales have been solid, and in particular, the Camry Hybrid has improved its fortunes, bumping its US sales almost fivefold to more than 45,000 units. So far in 2013, the latter has carried over much of that momentum, boosting January 2013 sales from a year earlier by 81 percent to 3,826 units.
