2 x Toyota Tercel 4x4 SR-5 Wagons:
I'll keep this short and simple. We have 2 wagons for sale with one title for the undamaged bronze wagon. Both cars are complete and have not ran in years.
Silver and Blue car:
-This car was wrecked head on (by me) and a little rusty but complete with a good driveline with 183k miles and a newer head and carb. This car drove away from the wreck and onto the trailer to get it home.
-Full of great spares for the other car
-Full SR-5 interior with inclinometer on dash and plaid seats that could probably be rehabbed with a good scrubbing
-6 speed extra low 1st gear transmission
-this car immediately fires when turned over and shot with starter fluid
-Excellent rust-free body
-broken back glass
-complete SR-5 interior just like other car
-6 speed trans
-engine spins freely
So here's the deal, both cars ran in the last 5+ years and were our personal vehicles. The bronze car is missing 2nd gear and the the wrecked car has a good complete driveline. The plan was to swap in the engine and trans from wrecked car and have a nice rust free driver with a complete parts car with another good engine. Both cars have some mildew inside and need a good cleaning. The silver car probably has the better interior so I would swap that in too. These cars are getting extremely hard to find and are the only 4x4's I know of that get an honest 35 MPG on the highway. I have tried to be accurate and honest in the description of these cars but I encourage you to look at the cars before you bid so there are no questions as of their condition. I am selling these cars for my father and we have nothing to hide.

With a rich history of creating off-road worthy trucks and SUVs and a somewhat bland impression of its brand overall, Toyota has wisely created a line of TRD Pro Series vehicles to spice up its showrooms and newly engage customers. Debuting at this year's Chicago Auto Show before rolling into dealers this fall, the TRD-tuned vehicles include the 4Runner, Tacoma and Tundra, all with added rough-road gear and amped-up looks.
The TRD Pro Series trucks might end up, in many cases, as lifestyle accessories for outdoorsy types, but that doesn't mean they're all show. TRD springs and Bilstein dampers are set up for off-road performance, while skid plates will protect the softish underbellies of these would-be rock-crawlers. The trio all get lifted over stock height, as well, with two-inch gains for the Tundra and Tacoma (lovingly referred to as "Taco Supreme" in the Toyota press release), and an inch-and-a-half rise for the 4Runner.
We detailed all of the changes to the Pro Series vehicles in our original announcement post, and you'll also find more granularity of information in the Toyota press release below. Before you dive in, however, be sure to take in our set of live, action-packed images from the Chicago Show floor.
The ES is Lexus' top-selling sedan, but the Japanese luxury marque has never manufactured it outside of Japan. In fact, Lexus has never made any cars in the United States, one of its largest markets worldwide. But that's about to change.
Yesterday, construction began in Georgetown, Kentucky, on the first Lexus assembly line in America, the first concrete (or steel) step in a $360-million expansion of Toyota's plant in the Bluegrass state that will create 750 new jobs. The expansion was announced last April by chief executive Akio Toyoda at the New York Auto Show.
Once the new assembly line gets online in the fall of next year, Toyota plans on building some 50,000 units of the ES each year. Lexus sold a record 72,581 examples of the ES in the United States last year - 30 percent more than the previous year - so Lexus will either have to import some more from overseas or leave some buyers disappointed.
Over the past two years, Toyota has invested more than $2 billion at its North American production facilities, and it apparently doesn't plan on stopping there. To keep up with recent strong sales, Toyota is investing an additional $200 million at its engine plants in the Southern US to increase production capacity of its V6 engines.
The bulk of this money ($150 million) will go to expand Toyota's engine plant in Huntsville, AL, which is currently responsible for supplying engines - four-cylinder, V6 and V8 - to eight of Toyota's 12 domestically produced vehicles. That includes the best-selling Toyota Camry (shown above).
Toyota didn't say exactly what improvements are being made to the plant, but this follows last year's $80 million investment in the plant that is set to be completed by next year raising the engine capacity to 750,000 annual units including 362,000 V6s. The remaining $50 million will go to the casting plants of Toyota-owned Bodine Aluminum in Missouri and Tennessee, which supply engine blocks and cylinder heads to the Huntsville engine plant as well as others in Kentucky and West Virginia.
