1966 Toyota Landcruiser Factory Soft Top Fj40 Ground Up Restored - None Better! on 2040-cars
West Linn, Oregon, United States
Hereís an opportunity to own an incredible Concours Winning Factory Soft Top FJ40 Landcruiser. This FJ40 received a 3-year complete bare metal nut and bolt restoration to the highest standard. The restoration was completed in 2013. It has been driven 160 miles since being finished.
Originally sold at Hil Probert Motors in Lakespur , California (see inner glove box decal), and still wearing its original California black plates to this day.
This 1966 cruiser started out as a dry and complete California example, never hit, original Volcanic Beige paint, a true cream puff and the best possible base car you could ever hope to find for a full blown nut and bolt restoration.
The restoration was a team effort involving some highly respected Landcruiser experts based out of the Pacific Northwest. Genesis 4 wheel drive, Metric TLC, and Landcruiser Northwest.
I have a 3 ring binder full of all documentation pertaining to the restoration.
Every component is restored, rebuilt, detailed, plated, accurately reproduced, etc.
Many New Old Stock parts were used during the build. It has correct coral red upholstery, proper red seat belts, khaki green soft top and soft doors, proper canvas safety straps for the door openings, correct decals. I also have a rebuilt Jack with handles, and a restored hand crank start handle that are included.
Drivetrain is a freshly rebuilt 2F with a 4 speed; it was built to be a great driver.
Iím a firm believer in pictures being worth a thousand words. Please see my gallery for as found, under construction, and finished photos.
This beauty was debuted at the 2013 Forest Grove Concours D Elegance where it won its class and was runner up for best in show post-war. Not an easy task by any means.

New version of Toyota FT-1 Concept gets racy for Gran Turismo 6Thu, 07 Aug 2014
Gran Turismo 6 has been the preferred marketing springboard for quite a few brands and concept cars since its debut last winter. Specifically the GT Vision concept idea - allowing manufacturers a built-in place to offer up new, original, drivable content - has enticed the likes of Mercedes, Nissan, Volkswagen, Toyota and more to dream big on the digital stage before pulling the sheets back on real concept cars.
In fact, Toyota teamed its live reveal of the FT-1 Concept at the Detroit Auto Show with an in-game launch of the car, just this past January. Looking for a second bite at the GT6 apple, Toyota has just released a teaser video for a new, FT-1 Vision GT version of the same concept.
The company isn't giving us much to go on save for the 30-second video, saying only that the concept was penned by Toyota's Calty Design Research team in California, and that it will "soon be available for download." By the looks of it, the new FT-1 seems to be more of a racecar than the original, without obvious changes to the basic form. No word on whether or not there's a physical concept car in the offing at a yet-to-be-named auto show. Stay tuned.
Toyota U2 urban utility concept inspired by Maker Faire [w/video]Tue, 09 Sep 2014
There's a quiet revolution happening in US cities. People want to mix an urban lifestyle with a connection to nature and appreciation for craftsmanship. The result of all of this is folks pursuing things as varied as urban farming, home brewing and the whole maker movement. Toyota thinks it has the perfect concept for these intrepid customers with its new Urban Utility concept that it is debuting during a panel discussion hosted by Make: magazine in San Francisco and debuting publicly on September 20 at the World Maker Faire in New York City.
The Urban Utility concept can best be described as a modern take on the old panel van. Designers from Toyota's Calty Design Research center in California interviewed Maker Faire participants to find out what its users want from a novel vehicle like this. "Toyota saw an opportunity for a new approach to an urban vehicle based on increasing re-urbanization of our cities and urban drivers' desire for flexibility, fun and maneuverability," said Kevin Hunter president of Calty.
On the outside, the Urban Utility doesn't really scream for attention. It's meant to meet users "desire for greater utility but a smaller vehicle footprint," according to the release, but the shape is still very much a van. The designers do try to lend it some panache with the LED headlights up front and checker board side panels. It's really more about utility than looks, though, because the roof can roll back for taller loads, the rear glass retracts into the tailgate, and the whole rear can fold down as a ramp to load stuff more easily into the cabin. Toyota isn't talking about a powertrain yet but claims that the underbody is also especially durable for a long life in the big city.
Toyota to offer sedan version of GT 86?Fri, 11 Oct 2013
Sources in Australia are reporting that we'll be seeing a small, rear-drive sedan from Toyota, based on the GT 86/Scion FR-S. Yes, a convertible variant is still in limbo, but a four-door sedan is in the works. It's unclear if the rumored GT 86 sedan would spawn Scion and Subaru variants (it's hard to cross all ten fingers while you type, but we're having a go).
Working with remarks made by the car's chief engineer Tetsuya Tada in his blog and a rendering from Japanese magazine Holiday Auto, the Australian site Motoring is claiming that the new model's wheelbase will grow about four inches over the current GT 86's 101.2-inch wheelbase.
Besides the larger overall space between the axles, the sedan will offer a more potent engine option over the current 2.0-liter, flat-four. Promising 268 horsepower, which is a big jump over the current car's 200 ponies, the new powertrain will be derived from the Hybrid R setup, shown at the Frankfurt Motor Show. If, like us, you're reaching for the salt, and we don't blame you.
