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

If you've been having an easy day and haven't received your daily dose of unmitigated terror, then this video is for you. Dr. Guan Zhu, a Texas A&M professor, caught the above view on his dashcam in College Station, TX, as a cement truck ran a red light, lost control and rolled into his Toyota Sienna minivan.

Although he received only minor injuries, Dr. Zhu says that he blacked out during the accident. The truck driver also avoided serious injuries, and the Sienna took the hit rather well too. Scroll down to watch the footage and report from KBTX. Hopefully, this is as close anyone else ever gets to a terrifying event of this nature.
Toyota is on track for record profits, and in return, its Japanese workers are receiving their first increase in base wages since 2008, plus higher pay based on seniority and a larger bonus for 2014. The Japanese automaker predicts the average laborer will net a 2.9 percent income gain.

The average Toyota employee will earn 2,700 yen ($26.28) more each month, a 0.8 percent increase from last year. Workers will also receive about 7,300 yen ($71.09) more monthly based on seniority and promotions. Finally, the company's union pushed through a median bonus of 2.44 million yen ($23,768) for 2014, the highest in 6 years.
The pay boost comes as Toyota forecasts a record 1.9-trillion yen ($18.5 billion) profit for the fiscal year ending on March 31, according to Bloomberg. It has been helped by the Japanese government's efforts to weaken the yen on international markets and expand inflation. Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has been asking businesses to increase compensation to end years of deflation and offset upcoming higher sales taxes. Honda and Nissan have also raised their wages there in recent months.
The sixth edition of the Kelley Blue Book Brand Image Awards have crowned a wide range of winners - in a couple of cases the recipient of the laurels might say more about KBB users than they do about the actual winner. Compiled from the responses of more than 12,000 shoppers on KBB.com over the past year, there are 13 categories broken into non-luxury, luxury and truck segments "representing the combined wisdom of the American car-buying public."
The award categories have been revamped this year, with some dropping off, some new ones appearing and at least one other given a new term. What isn't surprising is that Honda won Most Trusted Brand for the second year running, Best Value Brand for the third year in a row and took Best Overall Brand, which wasn't on last year's list of awards.
On our own shores, in the non-luxury categories Chrysler got Most Refined Brand and Buick took Best Value Luxury Brand. Neither one of those marques won anything in last year's Brand Image Awards, while Cadillac, which won Best Interior Design Brand and Best Comfort Brand last year - those awards disappeared this year - went home without a single accolade.
