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 makes $100M investment to boost Indiana Highlander production

Mon, 25 Aug 2014 13:31:00 EST

Toyota has announced that it will be making a $100 million investment in its Princeton, IN factory in a bid to increase production of its popular Highlander CUV. The move will create 300 new jobs by 2016 and increase the total number of crossovers the plant can produce by 30,000.
Toyota currently builds the Highlander, alongside the fullsize Sequoia, at Toyota Indiana's West Plant. The additional capacity, though, will be sent to the East Plant, which is currently responsible for production of the recently refreshed Sienna minivan.
"The Highlander has been a great product for our plant," Toyota Indiana President Norm Bafunno said in a statement. "Establishing Highlander as the 'bridge vehicle,' as we call it, between the East and West plants increases our ability to meet customer needs for our outstanding products. This exciting news is a true testament to the capability of our hard-working and dedicated team members."

Toyota FT-86 Open Concept leaves us feeling flushed

Wed, 20 Nov 2013 16:39:00 EST

When last we checked in on our topless would-be hero, the Toyota FT-86 convertible had been reportedly placed on "indefinite hold." That was back in early October, not long after Toyota had trotted out the rear-wheel-drive canvasback to Scion dealers as a possible future product carrot if they decided not to turn in their franchises. And yet, we're here at the Tokyo Motor Show, where Toyota has taken the time to at least repaint the FT-86 Open Concept in "Flash Red," if not build a whole other car (the original Geneva showcar was white). It's enough to make our heads spin like a teenager on the verge of a breakup. Will they? Won't they?
At this point, we still don't know any more than you do - the last word we heard out of Toyota was not encouraging, although the story was that the program could still be fast-tracked if management had a change of heart. As the car has never been seen before in Japan, perhaps Toyota is merely extending its domestic audience a courtesy view before it lines this showcar in mothballs, or maybe they're still trying to make a decision on its fate and gauging public reaction on the homefront.
Interestingly, in a new story published today, Automotive News quotes Subaru brand boss Yasuyuki Yoshinaga downplaying the likelihood of a production model, saying flatly "We make the car, so if we don't make it, it can't happen." The executive went on to note, "Our engineering department told me that losing the entire roof requires a complete redesign of the structure. It would need a big change." Given that such a car would probably trade in rather small volumes, that sounds like a significant hurtle.

Airbag recall adds 85k Pontiac Vibes to tally

Fri, 13 Jun 2014 15:44:00 EST

The repairs needed for the faulty airbag inflators supplied by Takata continue to expand. Toyota initially announced a recall of 766,300 vehicles equipped with the bad part on June 11 as a followup to a campaign from 2013. Soon after, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration opened a preliminary evaluation into five automakers who also used the component in their models. Now, NHTSA has released the official announcement of the latest Toyota recall listing 844,277 affected cars, including the newly added 2003-2004 Pontiac Vibe.
While NHTSA's document didn't include a model-by-model breakdown, General Motors spokesperson Alan Adler estimated to Autoblog that roughly 85,000 Vibes in the US would be covered under the latest recall. Like the rest of the affected models, the airbag inflator could rupture in a crash causing the bag not to work correctly, possibly spraying metal fragments at the occupant.
Toyota spokesperson Cindy Knight told Autoblog that the reason for the disparity between the earlier press release and NHTSA document was that Toyota was continuing to comb through VINs to create a list of affected vehicles. The original number was an estimate of that process at the time. Scroll down to the recall report from NHTSA.
