1987 Toyota Landcruiser Hj 60 2h Diesel H55 Tranny on 2040-cars

Year:1987 Mileage:148000 Color: is in overall good condition
Location:

Alto, New Mexico, United States

Alto, New Mexico, United States

This is an excellent vehicle for the avid Cruiser head! The 2H engine is a rock solid diesel engine and has been well maintained through and through. This engine produces alot of low end torque which allows it power through 4WD terrain with ease. Toyota has a rugged reputation and this vehicle is no exception.

There is some rust on the under carriage, however, the tub is solid and there are no wear spots. A hail storm imparted a handful of dings to the roof and hood, but it is only slightly evident. 

This is a mechanically sound vehicle. It is capable of 4WD adventures in the high passes of the San Juan mountains at 12,600 ft and will likewise drive 75 MPH down the highway. Parts are surprisingly available for this model and it always turns heads. The exterior is in overall good condition, however, it has a mirror which has fallen off and the Landcruiser emblem on the passenger side has fallen off. I do have both of them as well as some additional items to go with the winning bidder.

The fuel economy specifics are entirely up to how hard and fast you push the vehicle, but at 65 MPH on the HWY you can expect anywhere from 18-20 MPG of DIESEL! It is a heavy machine and non turboed therefore it does pass black smoke in the exhaust...this is normal! I have considered installing the appropriate turbo charger for it in the past, however, they are very expensive to purchase and I don't know many mechanics who were willing to tackle the project without charging as much as the turbo. 

I am the third owner of this truck and her name is Sadie. The original owner was a plumber from Canada and the second owner was a lawyer who had it imported to San Antonio, Tx. He would use it to take his kids hunting and for going out to get ice cream on Sundays. I bought her about five years ago to get me back and forth from college a two hour drive away. I made the trek once a week and she never gave me any problems. On days I woke up late she would push me to class at 75MPH!
I am selling because I have finished college and my wife and I own a few businesses in which I need to invest the money I have in the Landcruiser to ensure their survival.

I still owe a small amount, but my bank is very timely and easy to work with. The winning bidder may pay with paypal or via wire transfer.

Thanks for looking!

Toyota investing $30 million in Indiana for more Highlander production

Sun, 28 Jul 2013 11:08:00 EST

Indiana seems like the place to be if you're looking for work in a car factory. In May, Subaru announced plans to invest $400 million in its Lafayette, Indiana plant, creating 900 new jobs in the process and increasing capacity to 300,000 units per year. Now, Toyota has announced plans to invest $30 million in its Princeton, Indiana plant, 170 miles south of the Subaru factory, which also builds the Camry.
Toyota's investment will create an additional 200 jobs and increase the factory's volume by 15,000 units. Toyota announced an investment in the plant in February of 2012 that bumped volume up from 300,000 to 350,000 units. Toyota Motor Manufacturing Indiana, as the Princeton facility is officially known, produces the recently revised Toyota Highlander, the Sequoia and the Sienna. It employs 4,500 people, and this announcement represents Toyota's tenth production increase in under two years.

Toyota GT86 engineer Tada recounts how sports car came to be

Wed, 13 Feb 2013 14:29:00 EST

Because the Toyota GT86, Scion FR-S and Subaru BRZ coupes are now a reality, it's almost hard to imagine the struggle that had to happen within the large, conservative corporate structures at both automakers for the joint project to even get off of the ground.
Speaking to those struggles on Toyota UK's Toyota Blog, GT86 Chief Engineer Tetsuya Tada enlightens us with a recap of the sports car's earliest origins. For Tada, the first stages of the project must have seemed almost as dreamlike as the final product is to drive.
Said the Chief, "I had been working in the minivan department engineering new product, but a month after the meeting I was summoned. 'Forget about minivans,' they said, 'you are now working on the sports-car project.'"

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.
