BEAUTIFUL 1978 TOYOTA FJ40 LANDCRUISER FRESHLY RESTORED










WELCOME TO MY AUCTION:


HERE IS YOUR CHANCE TO WIN A BEAUTIFULLY FRAME ON RESTORED 1978 TOYOTA FJ40 LAND CRUISER.

THIS TRUCK HAS ALWAYS BEEN A SOUTHWEST TRUCK. IT WAS BOUGHT NEW IN ALBUQUERQUE NEW

MEXICO AND HAS BASICALLY SPENT IT'S WHOLE LIFE HERE. IT EVEN HAS THE ORIGINAL DEALER

WINDOW STICKER FROM NEW IN ALBUQUERQUE.


I AM A RESTORER OF THESE TOYOTA'S . WHEN I BOUGHT THIS TRUCK IT CAME WITH A FILE FROM THE

PREVIOUS OWNER OF MECHANICAL REBUILDING, MANY MANY RECEIPTS FROM HIS OWNERSHIP.

BEFORE I STARTED THE RESTORATION OF THE BODY AND INTERIOR, I KNEW THE MECHANICS ON THE

FJ40 WERE JUST SUPER. THE TRUCK HAS NO LEAKS! THE ENGINE IS AS SMOOTH AS A SEWING

MACHINE.


NOW FOR WHAT I DID TO THE TRUCK. VIEW ALL PHOTOS SINCE IT SHOWS THE TEAR DOWN AND

REBUILD. THE COMPLETE BODY WAS DISASSEMBLED AND MEDIA BLASTED TO SEE WHAT WAS NEED FOR

A PROPER REPAINT. THE TOYOTA MUSTARD COLOR YOU SEE IS THE FACTORY COLOR IT CAME WITH.

THE TRUCK IS PAINTED WITH DUPONT ACRYLIC ENAMEL INSIDE AND OUT, TOOK THREE GALLONS OF

PAINT FOR THE BEAUTIFUL FINISH YOU SEE HERE TODAY. THE PAINT FINISH IS OUTSTANDING. THE

TRUCK HAD NO FLOOR RUST.  

I ELECTED TO RHINO LINE THE INTERIOR FLOOR SURFACES FOR FUTURE USAGE AND PROTECTION

FROM THE ELEMENTS. AS YOU CAN READ ON THE DEALER STICKER THE TRUCK HAD BEEN UNDERCOATED

BEFORE IT WAS FIRST SOLD, THAT IS WHY THIS TRUCK WAS IN SUCH NICE CONDITION. THE TRUCK

SHOWED TO NEVER HAD BEEN IN ANY TYPE OF ACCIDENTS. EVERY PIECE OF

SHEET METAL ON THIS TRUCK IS ORIGINAL TO THE TRUCK WITH EXCEPTION OF THE REAR SILL UNDER

THE AMBULANCE DOORS. THE SILL WAS SHOWING RUST BLISTERS, I ELECTED TO REPLACE RATHER

THAN REPAIR.

EVERYTHING PAINTED SILVER ON THE TRUCK IS ALSO PAINTED IN DUPONT ACRYLIC ENAMEL. ALSO

EVERYTHING THAT IS IS WHITE IS PAINTED THE SAME WAY.

MOST OF THE ASSEMBLY HARDWARE WAS REPLACED WITH STAINLESS STEEL BOLTS.

YOU ARE VIEWING PHOTOS OF THE TRUCK IN VARIOUS STAGES OF THE RESTORATION.

ALL SEATS HAVE BEEN REDONE ALONG WITH THE FOAM IN FACTORY COLOR. I ALSO ADDED A NEW

CARGO MAT FOR THE REAR AND NEW MATS FOR THE FRONT.

ALL GAUGES FUNCTION AS NEW, TRUCK IS JUST A LITTLE OVER 72,000 MILES ON ODOMETER. ALL

ELECTRICAL HAS BEEN GONE THROUGH. ALL LENSES FOR LIGHTS REPLACED.

ALL WINDOW WIND LACE WAS REPLACED AS WELL AS DOOR SEALS. DOORS SHUT LIKE A NEW CAR.

TRUCK, HAS NO RATTLES OR SQUEAKS.

ALL GLASS IS EXCELLENT.

THE PREVIOUS OWNER HAD DONE SOME OF THE CHROME YOU SEE . I ASKED HIM WHY HE DIDN'T JUST

BUY THE NEW STAINLESS PARTS THAT ARE AVAILABLE? HE SAID HE DID BUT DIDN'T LIKE THE QUALITY

SO HE ELECTED TO HAVE THE BRIGHT WORK YOU SEE CHROME PLATED INSTEAD. THE THINGS HE DID

SHOW VERY NICE.

THE TRUCK HAS 5 NEW NEXEN ALL TERRAIN TIRES . THESE TIRES HAVE THE PLACES FOR STUDS IF

NEEDED FOR YOUR CLIMATE. THEY ARE 10.50X 31X15 INCH, THESE MAKE THE TRUCK STAND UP

PROUD. AS YOU CAN SEE THIS TRUCK HAS NOT HAD THE REAR FENDERS CUT OUT AND FLAIRS ADDED.

THE TRUCK WILL COME WITH A FOLDER FULL OF RECEIPTS FOR WHAT I HAVE DONE AND THE PREVIOUS

OWNER HAD DONE.

THIS CRUISER DOES NOT HAVE POWER STEERING OR AIR CONDITIONING.

BID WITH CONFIDENCE, THIS IS A GORGEOUS FJ40 THAT YOU WILL BE PROUD TO OWN.

Toyota to start production of hydrogen vehicles in December

Sun, 08 Jun 2014 09:01:00 EST

Toyota's hydrogen fuel cell vehicle will be in showrooms sooner than planned, the Japan Times reporting that production will commence in mid-December with the sedan following "by the end of this year." No reason was given for the new timeline; Toyota has been saying all along that we'd see it in 2015.
The company is said to be "considering" production volume of "dozens of... vehicles per month" at a "likely" price of eight million yen, which is $78,030 US. That is well in line with the numbers thrown around last year, when the target was somewhere between $50,000 and $100,000. Then late last year, during our first drive of the FCHV mule, we wrote that "the official quote... [is] that a price of 'less than 10 million yen is ideal.'"
That alleged $78K is a sizable sum to be one of the early adopters on the hydrogen fuel cell wagon train, but with things moving around so much - and with Toyota publicly citing hydrogen fuel cells as the future - there's plenty of reason to be cautious about that number.

The pre-race and first in-race report from Le Mans

Sat, 22 Jun 2013 20:20:00 EST

The 2013, 90th anniversary edition of the 24 Hours of Le Mans has begun, tragedy marking the opening laps with the death of Allan Simonsen. We're at the track now as a guest of Audi and plan to stay through the evening, and even we haven't been able to find out what caused the accident - the only video is from just after the incident, and beyond the statement from ACO there's been no more news. The Aston Martin in the LM GTE Am class and its all-Danish drivers had taken pole in its class and was one of the favorites to win.
The pre-race report will come first, and even thought we can't spoil the race because we're only five hours into it at the time of writing, we'll put all of the news at the end in case you don't even want the updates.
Or you can go straight to the high-res galleries above.

2014 Toyota Aygo marks the spot [w/video]

Tue, 04 Mar 2014 12:28:00 EST

Following the leaked pictures we showed you yesterday, we have the full battery of images and info of the all-new Toyota Aygo, in addition to our gallery of live photos from the floor of the Geneva Motor Show.
Like its cousins from Peugeot and Citroën, the Aygo foregoes a diesel engine in favor of a highly efficient gas powerplant. The 1.0-liter naturally aspirated 4-cylinder turns out 68 horsepower and 70 pound-feet of torque. When it hits the market, it'll be with either a five-speed manual transmission or a five-speed, X-Shift automated manual. The former will help the Aygo return 57.3 miles per gallon and hit 62 miles per hour in 14.2 seconds. Opting for the X-Shift variant will net drivers 56 mpg, with 62 arriving in a leisurely 15.5 seconds.
We'll admit, aside from the fuel efficiency, there's nothing terribly great about those numbers. Still, with its compact dimensions - it's only 136 inches long - and a curb weight of no more than 2,000 pounds, it should prove tossable in the bends.
