1996 Toyota Land Cruiser Base Sport Utility 4-door 4.5l on 2040-cars

Year:1996 Mileage:223150

Beverly, Massachusetts, United States

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 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.

Toyota Prius sales could come up short in 2013

Sat, 06 Jul 2013 11:02:00 EST

A Toyota executive has said that the automaker's hybrid Prius model may not reach its 2013 goal of selling 250,000 units in the US marketplace. Bill Fay, group vice president for Toyota's US sales, told Reuters, "The 240,000 to 250,000 range is kind of where we're settling our sights for the Prius family."
The first-generation Prius, a five-passenger model, was introduced to the States in 2001 (its arrival made it the second mass-produced hybrid, after the two-seat Honda Insight). The second-generation model arrived in 2004, followed by the current third-generation design that arrived for the 2010 model year. The automaker has subsequently added the Prius V, a hatchback wagon (shown above) and the Prius C, a subcompact hatchback. As of March, 2013, cumulative worldwide sales of the Prius had reached 3.67 million units.
Last year, Toyota sold 236,659 Prius models in the US. However, sales of the model have fallen 5.1 percent in the first six months of 2013. In response, the automaker has boosted its marketing for the model, and the promotions are expected to continue through at least July.

Subprime financing on the rise in new car sales, leasing too

Fri, 07 Dec 2012 08:44:00 EST

We all remember the financial crisis that began several years back. At its core was a splurge of subprime lending for housing loans. The housing bubble burst, triggering a collapse of the mortgage-backed securities market. Apparently, those types of loans still exist in the automotive industry, and the market share for these types of "nonprime, subprime, and deep subprime," loans has grown 13.6 percent compared to the third quarter a year ago.
According to an Automotive News report, high-risk lending expanded to 24.8 percent of total loans in Q3, up from 21.9 percent for this time last year. As this level increased, average credit scores of borrowers dropped to 755, down from 763 a year ago. In that time, the average financing amount increased $90 per vehicle, to $25,963.
At 818, Volvo maintains the highest per-owner credit score, while Mitsubishi has the lowest, at 694. The highest rate of borrowers was at Toyota, with 14 percent of the market, followed by Ford with 13.1 percent and Chevrolet at 11.1.

YouTube's Super Bowl commercial buzz list dominated by automakers [w/videos]

Thu, 31 Jan 2013 15:44:00 EST

After Sunday's big game, YouTube will be the place to watch every commercial that you missed when you left your seat for an emergency guac refill or, as we say in Cleveland, took the Browns to the Super Bowl. That makes YouTube the nation's water cooler on Monday, and it's got some preliminary stats to share in the lead up to kickoff.
As you know, Super Bowl advertisers, particularly automakers, like to endlessly tease their big budget commercials in the weeks before the game, many times revealing them outright days in advance. Because of this, YouTube can tell us which commercials have been viewed the most so far, and their top five list is all automakers.
Kaley Cuoco appears to have been a good investment for Toyota, as her ad for the RAV4 has garnered the most YouTube views - six million and counting - among Super Bowl commercials so far. Second place goes to Mercedes-Benz, though not its actual Super Bowl commercial, but rather the teaser for it. You know, the one with Kate Upton and the car washing, which is up to 5.6 million views. Third place is Audi's Prom commercial (3.3M views), fourth goes to Volkswagen's slightly controversial Get In, Get Happy ad (3.3M views), and the fifth and final spot is bookended by the teaser video for Kaley Cuoco's commercial (3.2M views). You can watch all five in order below.
