Back in the 1950's the american army contacted the Toyota Motor Corporation with a request for a 4WD vehicle to be used by the soldiers and military police stationed in Japan. Toyota took the request seriously. The result: the Land Cruiser, a literary bullet proof vehicle.

1983 FJ 40 with factory power steering;its VIN is FJ40361343.

Any one who knows and understands the Toyota FJ40 Land Cruisers, realizes that the 1983 FJ40 is the "Holy Grail" of the FJ40's. This 117.000 Kilometers (73K Miles) original mile has been lightly used over its 30 year life span. It is a very complete example of the famed Toyota Land Cruiser line. As the photos show, this FJ40 has not been altered and is in very nice original condition. It starts easily, runs perfectly and is very strong cruising at 65 - 70 mph with ease. This FJ40 is a dream off-road machine and will satisfy any vintage four-wheel drive enthusiast.

As described this FJ40 is stunning and turns heads wherever it goes. This model/year is the last one imported and rarest with only 300 brought-in in 1983.

I imported this vehicle from Colombia (South America) and had it professionally painted by one of the most recognized classic car's restorers down there.It was painted inside,outside engine compartment and underneath. The vehicle was kept in original condition. I just added A/C bought at Cool Cruisers in Texas.

Doors shut tight and do not squeak or rattle.

The bottom of this truck is completely smooth,painted, and ready to shown with mirrors underneath.The frame is completely painted, floor pans are painted, smooth and waxed. Please email with any questions or for more photos.

Toyota nearing $1B settlement of unintended acceleration criminal probe

Sun, 09 Feb 2014 11:02:00 EST

According to those all-too-nebulous "people familiar with the matter," Toyota is close to a settlement with the US federal government to end a criminal probe over its long-running unintended acceleration fiasco. Though Toyota has never admitted guilt, the deal could reportedly crest a billion dollars and would likely include a criminal deferred prosecution agreement, and while we're not legal experts, The Wall Street Journal explains that such a deal would "[force Toyota] to accept responsibility while avoiding the potentially crippling consequences of federal criminal convictions."
The report from WSJ also suggests that Toyota is facing charges that it "made false or incomplete disclosures" to various government agencies regarding possible defects to its cars. Such charges may include mail and wire fraud violations. Toyota has already paid out fines totaling $66.2 million to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration because it failed to report safety defects in a timely manner.
This deal with the federal government is not related to the billion-dollar class-action settlement reached with Toyota owners over falling vehicle values, and it's also different from the roughly 400 lawsuits still in courts alleging personal injury of wrongful death due to cases of unintended acceleration. In other words, don't expect to hear the end of such courtroom verdicts and settlements anytime soon...

2014 Toyota Corolla to bow before LA

Sat, 30 Mar 2013 12:57:00 EST

We've sort of been wondering when Toyota would finally debut the next-generation Corolla sedan, especially since the current car is getting very, very long in the tooth. We got a glimpse of the new compact's design at this year's Detroit Auto Show in the form of the Furia concept seen above, but we figured we'd see the production car by now.
According to Edmunds, Toyota will be unveiling the new Corolla sometime soon, and it won't wait until the Los Angeles Auto Show in November. Officials from the Japanese automaker did not state a specific location or date for the new car's unveiling, but said that the 2014 Corolla is expected to be on sale before the LA expo later this year and that it will be revealed "somewhere in the US."
Toyota did not divulge any details about the new Corolla, and we're willing to bet that the aggressive lines of the Furia concept will be dulled down quite a bit for the production model. Still, news that the new car is coming sooner rather than later is indeed a good thing.

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.
