1969 Toyota Fj Cruiser Fj40 1969 Toyota Land Cruiser Fj40 White Garage Kept Mint on 2040-cars
Montauk, New York, United States
I have too many cars and am selling my 1969 Toyota Land Cruiser FJ40 which has been completely restored to original condition. This FJ40 has been painted inside, outside, underneath and inside the engine bay. It has 6 coats of primer, 2 coats of veva-seal, and 2 gallons of single-stage acrylic enamel paint. This is what the car would have originally come with.
The interior is white with gray front seats and a gray small jump seat in the back. Recently newly upholstered. It has a new dash pad, new factory floor mats, a factory roll bar, new door gaskets, and a new headliner.
This 1969 FJ40 is a original 4x4 with 23,701 miles, it has a factory PTO winch on the front, 5 new BF Goodrich all terrain tires. The engine is original with the straight 6 cylinder gas engine with the 3 speed transmission with high - low range the engine is all original as it still has the old vacuum control switch to switch between high and low range, every light and gauge works, the wipers work, the heater works.
This FJ also benefits from new brakes, new exhaust and new hubcaps. In addition to the new brakes the clutch, master cylinder, slave cylinder, and flywheel were replaced along with all the seals, boots, and transfer case. The transmission was also serviced at this time as well. It also has a new battery and it just passed its safety inspection this spring. In addition, Grand Prix Auto in Southampton, NY did a complete 150 point inspection and test drive of the car and assured me that it is in great running condition. They also checked that all numbers were matching and that all the parts were original.The FJ runs and drives great. I am the second owner. The Fj lived in a barn in Missouri and I have kept it garaged in NY for 4 years. If you want an original Land Cruiser this is it.
The only issues with the car are some minor areas of surface rust on the steps (which can be seen in the photos) and there is an area below the gas cap that needs some touch up paint. Otherwise the car is in really great condition. If you have any questions feel free to call me: Lee (631) 926-4740
I am very proud of this car. I love it very much and people are always very interested in it when they see it. It is a great looking car that I will be sad to let go but happy for someone else to enjoy.

If you're planning on buying a new car in the next month or so, you might want to pick from what's on the lot, because there could be a long wait for new vehicles from the factory. Locomotives continue to be in short supply in North America, and that's causing major delays for automakers trying to move assembled cars.

According to The Detroit News, there are about 180,000 new vehicles waiting to be transported by rail in North America at the moment. In a normal year, it would be about 69,000. The complications have been industry-wide. Toyota, General Motors, Honda and Ford all reported experiencing some delays, and Chrysler recently had hundreds of minivans sitting on the Detroit waterfront waiting to be shipped out.
The problem is twofold for automakers. First, the fracking boom in the Bakken oil field in the Plains and Canada is monopolizing many locomotives. Second, the long, harsh winter is still causing major delays in freight train travel. The bad weather forced trains to slow down and carry less weight, which caused a backup of goods to transport. The auto companies resorted to moving some vehicles by truck, which was a less efficient but necessary option.
Toyota's sales seem to have rebounded from the unintended acceleration issues from 2009 and 2010, but the automaker is far from done dealing with this situation. Following a settlement worth up to $1.4 billion for economic loss to affected vehicle owners, Toyota has settled rather than going to trial in a wrongful death lawsuit stemming from an accident in Utah in 2010 that left two passengers dead. This isn't the first case in which Toyota has settled, but it was the first among a consolidated group of cases being held in Santa Ana, CA.

According to The Detroit News, this case was scheduled to take place next month, and it was for a November 2010 incident in which Paul Van Alfen and Charlene James Lloyd were killed in a Camry when, based on findings by the Utah Highway Patrol, the accelerator got stuck causing the car to speed out of control and hit a wall; the terms of the settlement were not announced.
The article says that while Toyota will settle on some cases, it doesn't plan on settling on all of them as it still wants to be able to "defend [its] product at trial." This will probably be the case in suits claiming that software for the drive-by-wire accelerator was the cause of an accident in a Toyota or Lexus vehicle. The question of whether or not the electronic accelerator played any role in this problem has been a hot-button topic since the beginning. Toyota has issued recalls in the past to attempt to prevent unintended acceleration caused by trapped floor mats and faulty accelerator pedals, but it also says driver error was to blame in some instances.
A reshuffle in the uppermost ranks of Lexus could see the Japanese luxury brand further energize its recent focus on design. Tokuo Fukuichi, Toyota's global design boss, is the new head of Lexus International.
Fukuichi will retain his role as the overall head of design for Toyota, Lexus and Scion, and will assume his new position at the head of Lexus and on its board on April 1 (no fooling). This is going to be an interesting move for fans of design to watch, as Fukuichi has repeatedly been mentioned as a designer that enjoys pushing the edge of the envelope and experimenting. He is, after all, the man responsible for designing the most awesomely odd minivan of the 1990s, the mid-engined, rear-drive Toyota Previa, and more recently, he signed off on the controversial Lexus LF-NX concept, which is said to presage a new production small crossover.
"Regarding changes in design, no one has 100 percent confidence," Fukuichi told Forbes back in January 2013. "No one can really say with pure certainty that, 'In two years, this will sell well.'" As Akio Toyoda continues to demand more assertive, edgier designs, it's that point of view that should make Fukuichi a valuable addition to Lexus, as it continues to challenge the competition from Germany.
