1962 Toyota FJ45 Land Cruiser


Offered for sale is a 1962 Toyota FJ45. This truck was purchased via Ebay and imported from New Zealand in 2004 (shipping cost was approximately $2,000) by the previous owner. It is the cleanest, most solid Land Cruiser I have ever run across. The truck is practically, if not entirely, rust free with solid original floorpans and exterior.  All major mechanical work done to the truck was done in New Zealand to high standards, including certification thereof (apparently a requirement in New Zealand). Work done there included a 350 Chevy V-8 conversion along with a Chevy TH400 rebuilt (March 2004) automatic transmission with a B&M floor shift, upgrade to FJ60 axles with front disc brakes, steering column and steering box. (Approximately $8,000 in receipts were retained). The Vehicle bears a 2004 New Zealand 'Warrant of Fitness' window decal along with an affixed metal plate. Also, a certificate of registration dating back to 1965 goes with the vehicle's documentation.The vehicle was also repainted in New Zealand and has minor surface and paint imperfections, but does not require repainting, at least in my opinion.

The FJ45 both runs and drives great. Brakes are great and also power. Steering is tight and solid, but is not power. All lights and gauges work, with oil pressure and water temp in dash gages added. Speedo works and appears to have been converted from kms. Dual electric windshield wipers work, as does turn signals. Horn is currently activated by toggle switch, but should be able to be wired into the steering column with the addition of a horn relay. Floor shifted four wheel drive works and is paired with original locking front hubs. Toyota shoulder strap style seat belts installed.  All glass is good, including dual rear sliding glass windows. Rear air shocks. New battery, plugs, points, condenser, coil, and starter. Engine has an electric fan wired to ignition switch, Holley 4bbl., and Edelbrock intake. No leaks from engine, trans, or differentials. Tires are 31x10.5x15 in very good condition and tread. Side and windshield frame vents. No heater installed. Documented mileage indicates a total of 146,275 kms- most likely.

I bought this FJ45 on impulse in February while looking for an FJ40 to restore. I have recently acquired an FJ40, so the FJ45 is for sale. My 18 yr. old son and I have enjoyed driving it over the summer, but we are looking forward to finishing the FJ40. The FJ45 is solid, reliable, and a good driver or I would not have let my son in it. the longest trip we've taken it has been about 80 miles, but I wouldn't hesitate to drive it farther. The previous owner drove it from the Port of Savannah, GA to Atlanta in 2004.

The spare pictured in the rear bed is not included in the sale. It is an original 16" Toyota steel wheel, and if the buyer desires, the wheels and tires shown can be swapped for the full set of 7.00x16 steel wheels and tires, including the spare, which are original to this vehicle.

How the demise of Lincoln's Town Car has kick-started a limo revolution

Sun, 30 Dec 2012 10:59:00 EST

The deaths of the Ford Crown Victoria and the Lincoln Town Car have meant overhauls of three high-profile American fleets: police, taxi and livery car. Just as police fleets are more open to considering other options and a Nissan van is the new face of the NYC taxi, livery car companies are looking at replacements for the Town Car beyond The Blue Oval. Ford, via Lincoln, has made an MKT Town Car (pictured), but an article in the Detroit News claims "it has failed to win over most of the big limousine companies." The upstarts trying to move in include livery and limo editions of the Cadillac XTS, and livery specifications of the Toyota Avalon and Chrysler 300.
Each of those challengers, however, faces challenges. The Town Car was a workhorse, American, rear-wheel-drive sedan with plenty of rear legroom. Cadillac has been in the livery space before but with decontented models that were about selling the brand, not its luxury. It is taking the opposite approach with the XTS, pointing out that its livery edition is "contented in the upper half of the XTS range." Still, the CEO of Michigan's largest livery company says "it's quite a bit smaller than what we're used to," and he also prefers rear-wheel drive.
The Chrysler 300 is rear-wheel drive, and American, which matters to some companies, but Chrysler hasn't yet revealed the livery package for it. The livery Avalon marks Toyota's first time getting into that business in the US, a natural step after having done so well with taxi clients and with the Town Car out of the way. Still, the livery client is a different to taxi buyers, so the Avalon could face other soft-touch hurdles.

Toyota pimps out Esquire van for Japanese businessmen [w/video]

Wed, 29 Oct 2014 16:57:00 EST

A few months back we reported on a dealership owner in Japan who was petitioning Toyota to make a luxury van. The problem, he reasoned, was that he couldn't take as many friends, colleagues and clients around with him in his Lexus LS, and his Toyota Alphard van wasn't luxurious enough. Well, it seems like he wasn't alone, and Toyota has listened.
The Japanese auto giant has just revealed the Esquire, a new luxury van designed with just such customers in mind. It's significantly smaller than the Sienna we get in America, smaller than the aforementioned Alphard and about the same size as (this writer's favorite) the JDM Noah van (on which we gather it's based). But what sets the Esquire apart is its upscale appearance.
The boxy van is distinguished by its dominant T-shaped chrome grille with a unique emblem that encompasses a shield, sword, "the collar of a gentleman's suit" and the letters Esq. The flank is characterized by a strong beltline with chrome lower window frame and an expansive greenhouse with tinted rear glass. Inside the flexible cabin you'll find accommodation for seven or eight passengers (depending on specification), synthetic leather upholstery and wood and metallic trim. There are even wheelchair-enabled models on offer as well.

NHTSA urges owners of recalled Takata airbag vehicles to take immediate action

Mon, 20 Oct 2014 13:30:00 EST

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and the Department of Transportation are taking the unusual step of issuing a followup press release urging owners of certain recalled vehicles "to act immediately" to fix their cars and trucks. The problem in question concerns the repair campaigns for rupturing Takata airbag inflators issued in June and covers a long list of models from Toyota, Lexus, Honda, Acura, Mazda, BMW, Nissan, Infiniti, Buick, Cadillac, Chevrolet, GMC, Oldsmobile and Pontiac.
While NHSTA doesn't specifically say why the recall is vital in the new release, Toyota's own explanation in its newly announced renotification campaign earlier today sheds some new light on the topic. According to the Japanese automaker, in testing, Takata found a possible link between the rupturing airbag inflators and high humidity. NHTSA is advocating that all owners pursue repairs immediately if they haven't already done so already. This is especially crucial for those drivers especially in Florida, Puerto Rico, Guam, Saipan, American Samoa, Virgin Islands and Hawaii because of the humid conditions there.
We don't need to tell you how dangerous an inadvertent airbag deployment could be - even in a stationary vehicle - but adding to the Takata issue is fears that the deployment could lead to shrapnel being sprayed into the cabin.
