This is a beautiful project fj40 landcruiser that my father and i bought as it sits with hopes of finishing it together. he has since had 3 back surgeries and we are not going to get it done so we've decided to sell it to make room for other things. The project is pretty much down to the final assembly and fit/ finish stuff.
it is a fiberglass body with a one piece front end
the frame is black powdercoated
the engine is a GM performance 350 V8. i believe that it is still under a warranty as it has only been fired once. as far as i know we can transfer that warranty, but i do not know for sure. the exhaust is completely jet hot coated from the headers through the tail pipe. the listing says it is an inline 6, because ebay won't let me change it.
the tranny is a turbo 350 that has been rebuilt with a shift kit
the transfercase is a an NP208
axles are GM 10 bolts with outboard mounted leaf springs. is has been converted to power steering as well.
it has 17" rims with cooper discoverer tires. the rims are in good shape, the tires are used, maybe good for a summer of road driving, but not much beyond that.
here is a partial list of parts that go along with it
-new aluminum fuel cell that mounts under the rear with braided stainless lines
-3 complete and 1 disassembled leather audi bucket seats
-new painless wiring harness
-round eyes HID headlights
-complete set of autometer phantom gauges
-aftermarket tilt steering column
-lots of misc other parts. i'm in the process of unpacking all the parts that we have stashed for it and ill update the listing as i have more detials.

Toyota, Honda, Mazda, Nissan, Subaru, Mitsubishi, Suzuki and Daihatsu have announced an alliance that will see a push to improve fuel economy from both gas-powered and diesel-powered engines by as much as 30 percent before the end of the decade.

The newly assembled Research Association of Automotive Internal Combustion Engines put the roughly $20-million project together, with the Japanese government committing to half the cost while the eight manufacturers will chip in the rest.
According to Automotive News, the automakers will team up and share basic research on internal-combustion engines in a bid to cut costs. Eventually, the results of the research will find its way into a production vehicle, although it's unclear just when we'll see the fruits of this partnership on the road.
It's no secret that MyFord Touch has had its share of problems since being introduced, but the most recent reliability survey from Consumer Reports shows just how much this infotainment system has affected Ford. Just two years ago, the automaker was in the top 10 for the institute's reliability rankings, but since then, it has tumbled to the second-lowest rung just above dead-last Jaguar. In addition to MyFord Touch, CR also attributes a handful of new products that have had issues right out of the gate.

Compiled from 1.2 million subscriber surveys, this year's auto reliability survey heavily favors Japanese automakers, with eight of the 10 spots hailing from Japan. Toyota brands grabbed the top three spots (Scion, Toyota and Lexus - in that order) with Mazda, Subaru, Honda and Acura filling the next four spots. The only non-Asian automaker cracking the top 10 was Audi at number eight.
Audi climbed a total of 18 spots from last year, and Cadillac and GMC round out this year's top gainers breaking into the top 15. Helping Cadillac's upward movement, the CTS Coupe was named the most reliable domestic car. Lincoln, Volvo and Chrysler join Ford on this year's biggest loser list.
General Motors and Ford can have all the success they please, but it doesn't seem like America's two largest manufacturers are going to topple Toyota in the first half of 2013. According to Reuters, Toyota moved 4.91 million vehicles in the first six months of 2013, representing a 1.1-percent drop from the same period in 2012.
GM is on the rise, though, with a four-percent increase in global sales, to 4.85 million. Volkswagen, still sitting in third, saw a 5.5-percent jump to 4.7 million vehicles in the first half of 2013.
If this pace continues for Toyota, it'll finish 2013 in the top sales spot for the second year in a row. The manufacturer fell to third, behind GM and VW, in 2011 after earthquakes and tsunamis ravaged its production capacity.
