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.

The U.S. News Best Cars for the Money Awards picks winners by looking at the average transaction price, five-year total cost of ownership, the regard a car has from the automotive press, reliability figures from J.D. Power and Associates and safety data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. The result, according to the magazine, is "the best combination of critical acclaim and long-term value."

Ford nabbed six of the 21 categories that received awards this year, the Focus, Fusion, Fusion Hybrid, Taurus, Escape and Edge getting trophies. Toyota and its Lexus and Scion sub-brands took another five, the Tacoma and Tundra owning the two categories given to pickup trucks. The other ten awards were split between Honda with three, Buick with two, and one each for Subaru, BMW, Hyundai, Chevrolet and Mazda.

There are, as they say, two sides to every story, so after we posted a video on Monday showing what an owner claimed to be a case of unintended acceleration causing her Toyota Highlander to crash into a house twice, Toyota reached out to us revealing some additional information about the incident.

Following this crash, which took place back in November, Toyota had this Highlander inspected and pulled data from its Event Data Recorder (EDR), or Black Box as we've come to call it. Not only was this the first time we've seen a claim of unintended acceleration like this caught on video, but now, also a first, we have actual data showing what the vehicle itself recorded during this frightening ordeal.
Brian Lyons, Toyota Communications Manager for Safety and Quality, first gave us some information about the Highlander in question, including the fact that it was a 2012 model. The 2012 Highlander came from the factory with a brake override system, meaning it was not part of the company's initiative in 2010 to add the system to all 2011 models. Also, after looking at the data from the EDR, he said - as many of you pointed out in the comments for the previous post - that the "brake pedal was never touched." In the video, you can see that the crossover's brake lights never come on, and the EDR's data backs this up.
Toyota first launched the Yaris in 1999, though that model was sold in the North America as the Echo. The second generation arrived in 2005, replaced by the third in 2011. Sometime next year, Toyota is expected to roll out a new Yaris for North America, to be built in Mexico on the same platform as the next Mazda2. But before that comes to pass, Toyota has introduced a mild facelift for the Yaris in markets other than ours.
With styling cues borrowed from the new Aygo and the Yaris Hybrid-R concept, the new Yaris (for Europe) and Vitz (for Japan) are distinguished by updated styling front and rear. Though the European model bears a more aggressive look than the JDM version, both feature the new X motif that seems to be the new look for the whole family - particularly for small hatchbacks.
The back end has also been revised to incorporate new LED taillights and a (faux) diffuser in the bumper. The cabin, meanwhile, has been redesigned to feel roomier and quieter with upgraded equipment. The suspension has also been refined, and in Europe at least, Toyota will continue to offer the Yaris with a choice of 1.0- or 1.3-liter gasoline engines, 1.4-liter diesel or hybrid powertrains.
