Beverly, Massachusetts, United States

1996 Toyota Land Cruiser FZJ80 (clean title) with Factory Locking Differentials (494) with 223,150 miles. I purchased my dream truck 2.5 months ago with the intention of restoring it to its former glory. However, a recent home purchase that ended up going well over asking has wiped out my restoration budget and then some, which has forced the sale of my LC. This truck is running but definitely needs some repairs before it can become a daily driver. This vehicle was inspected on 2/2014 at a local Toyota dealership.

 The body is very clean, with a few minor dings (see hood) but the body is straight with no rust (spent entire life in Texas). All power works in the vehicle, but some windows are slow and locks need work (typical of this car). Heat and AC works great. The front seats do not move forward or backward due to stripped gears (another common issue) - I have new gears but have not yet replaced them. The interior is in really great shape with the exception of a few carpet stains. Cable for ebrake needs to be replaced. The main issue that needs to be addressed is the transmission as it skips gears in drive but works fine when shifting manually L-2-D.  This transmission issue is triggering the check engine light -‘shift solenoid B’ code. This truck has a few leaks typical of a car this age, including a small brake fluid leak that I monitor before taking her out The left front turn signal needs to be replaced. 

 I have put four brand new tires (less than 200 miles) on the truck, a new Diehard battery, installed a new EGR valve, serviced the front wheel bearings (Toyota), and purchased several parts that will ship with the vehicle. Detailed instructions on vehicle repairs can be found on iH8MUD.com. All paperwork for parts and service will come with the vehicle. This is a great truck that needs a little work to get going full time. It is rare to find these trucks that are not rusted out or used for rock crawling, I wish I could hang on to her and restore this solid axle 4x4 for family trips out West and beyond.

 Please email me with any questions before bidding. I will need $500 deposit 24 hours after auction close with the remainder of the balance within 7 days of close. Bidding history required. Title and key will be priority mailed upon payment in full. The vehicle will then be shipped or towed and paid by auction winner.

2014 Toyota Corolla shows its new Euro-spec nose [w/poll]

Fri, 07 Jun 2013 11:02:00 EST

After tons of teasing, Toyota finally unveiled the all-new 2014 Corolla in the wee hours of the - at least to those of us here in the Midwest. The fresh new face of the US-spec car takes a number of cues from the Camry and Avalon sedans, and in S trim with the large alloy wheels and blacked-out front fascia, we'd even venture this is the most boldly styled North American Corolla to date (faint praise as that may be).
Of course, our friends in other markets will also be getting fully updated versions of the Corolla as well, and here, we're getting our first glimpse at the European-spec car, complete with a very different front fascia that, at least in this trim, seems to take a more conservative design approach. A quick poll of the Autoblog staff shows that we're torn as to whether or not we prefer this European look to our North American-specific car, but at least in the sporty-ish S trim, we think the Americans may have got the better end of the deal.
The Euro-spec Corolla actually shares a lot of its design with its larger platform-mate, the Auris, a car that we don't - and likely won't - get in the States. Inside, the European Corolla looks basically the same as the NA car, and while market-specific engines and specifications haven't been released yet, it's expected that the Corolla will share much of its dirty bits with the European Auris, as well.

Toyota asking NHTSA for fuel cell car safety exemption regarding electric shocks

Mon, 30 Jun 2014 16:01:00 EST

Toyota is requesting an exemption from federal safety regulations that govern electric cars as it prepares to launch a small-scale hydrogen fuel-cell vehicle fleet.
The Japanese automaker is targeting Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard 305, which covers the packaging of high-voltage parts in electric cars. According to Uncle Sam, these systems need to be isolated so that passengers and first responders aren't electrocuted in the event of a crash. That seems pretty smart, but it's become a problem for Toyota's upcoming production fuel cell vehicle, as the mechanism that prevents electric shocks in low-speed crashes will apparently simply keep Toyota's car from even functioning.
Instead of the federally approved system, Bloomberg reports that Toyota plans to insulate the high-voltage wires and cables in the car, along with shielding electrical components like the fuel cells, electric motor and batteries with (presumably non-conductive) metal barriers.

Japanese dealer petitioning Lexus for luxury van [w/poll]

Thu, 13 Mar 2014 07:58:00 EST

Used to be that if you wanted a luxury automobile - especially one to be chauffeured around in - your choices were basically limited to a sedan. It could be bigger or smaller, more or less expensive, depending on your needs and budget, but it was always going to have four doors and a trunk. But these days the rich and famous are looking elsewhere for their commodious forms of pampering transportation. There are, of course, the crossovers and SUVs, which only seem to be getting bigger and more expensive thanks to the likes of the Mercedes-Benz G-Class, Range Rover L and upcoming Bentley sport-ute. But luxury vans are becoming the new big thing.
That's the point that one dealer in Japan is trying to make to Toyota. The dealership owner himself reasons that if he's going out on the town, he's likely to take his chauffeured Lexus LS. But if he's taking a few friends along, even the biggest sedan isn't going to cut it. So he takes a Toyota Alphard (pictured above, also known as the Vellfire), a JDM van that's even bigger than a Voxy/Noah or Sienna but hardly a high-end affair. That's why he's asking Lexus to make a luxury van.
The idea may seem a little far-fetched, but isn't without precedent. It didn't take much for Lexus to transform the Land Cruiser into the LX and thus create its first luxury SUV. And as Mercedes has shown with pimped-out versions of the Sprinter and now with the debut of the new V-Class in Geneva, there's clearly a market for it... in some countries, anyway. The only question in our minds is how long it's going to take other luxury automakers to catch on, because let's face it: the Chrysler Town & Country ain't gonna cut it for those used to be driven around in a Maybach.
