1979 Toyota Land Cruiser Bj40 Diesel on 2040-cars
Dundee, Oregon, United States
Please message me with questions at: email@example.com .
For sale is this rare 1979 Toyota Land Cruiser BJ40 Diesel. It was imported from the country of Costa Rica and has
a clean Oregon title where it is located. This BJ40 is a gem; itís almost impossible to find Diesel cruisers in
this condition and so well preserved. This is an "original condition" vehicle, not a restoration or re-build, which
is even more rare. Original body, metal, motor, steering, brakes, head-liner etc. The paint and seat-door coverings
were new in 2009, but you can see in photos/video top quality.
It was purchased new in 1979 and kept in a garage, only taken out for pleasure cruising and trips around town.
Which such light use, it has 78,000 original kilometers (64,000 Miles). This BJ40 has absolutely no rust or other
signs of deterioration of the body, which is common in these vehicles in any climate. What you see in the photos
and video, is what you see in-person with this vehicle.
The B Diesel motor is known to be a workhorse and nearly indestructible, with fuel-economy of over 20 miles per
gallon. The BJ40 is a manual 4-speed with original steering. The vehicle shifts smoothly and travels straight with
great power. The 4-cylinder motor is made for low end torque climbing and cruising of 45-50 mph. A pioneer stereo
with CD player and new speakers were installed.
It was carefully maintained, up until the day of sale by the original owner. Our trusted mechanic, with years of
experience with these vehicles, did a complete inspection and found a few routine items common in a 37 year-old
vehicle. The following maintenance was done in 2016:
Cleaned motor and injection system and replaced injection heads
Reviewed and changed Glow Plugs
Changed oil and all filters
Revision and change of rubber seals
Changed primary pump on the clutch and adjusted
Cleaning and adjustment of brakes, replaced brake fluid
Painted top, rack and ladder
Paint was re-done in 2009 in Carnival Red (T-335), inside and out. The paint is clean and professionally done. We
re-painted the vehicle top, rack and ladder in original white. This is a vehicle that doesnít come along very
often. On June 18th, we entered into the Seaside, Oregon Car Show and won the "Founders Award". If you have been
waiting to find that near perfect Diesel Land Cruiser, then your wait is over!

Toyota has announced plans to voluntarily recall 803,000 vehicles from model years 2012 and 2013, over concerns with the air conditioning condenser housing. The recall covers the Camry, Camry Hybrid, Avalon, Avalon Hybrid and Venza, although the exact split between affected models wasn't available.
According to Toyota, the condenser can leak onto an airbag control module, which in turn could cause a short circuit. In most cases, this will just lead to an airbag warning light, but in rarer instances, the airbags could fail to deploy or pop out of their own accord. There's also a concern over a loss of power steering if the airbag control module develops a short.
It's unclear if there have been any injuries or crashes relating to the defects. Toyota will begin informing owners of affected vehicles via first class mail, and will ask them to report to dealerships for recall work, involving the installation of a cover on the condenser housing.
While slow sales and a $50,000 price tag may have been contributing factors to the Aston Martin Cygnet being cancelled last month, Aston Martin CEO Ulrich Bez is pointing the finger at Toyota for the demise of this luxurious little city car. In a discussion with Autocar, Bez is quoted as saying that the ultimate reason the Cygnet was cut is because Toyota plans on dropping the iQ (on which the Cygnet is based) in 2014 - a claim denied by the Japanese automaker.
Interestingly, the article also cites another publication reporting that a Toyota importer in the Netherlands heard the same news as Bez, and it has already stopped importing the cars. If the European Toyota iQ is cancelled, that would likely spell the end of the slow-selling Scion iQ in the US, which has sold just 3,365 units through September (a drop of 51 percent year over year).
Regardless of why production of the Cygnet ended, Bez also says that a lack of support from Toyota on the project prevented it from being offered in the US or receiving a supercharged engine, which are two factors that likely would have made the car appealing to more buyers.
The U.S. News Best Cars for the Money Awards picks winners by looking at the average transaction price, five-year total cost of ownership, the regard a car has from the automotive press, reliability figures from J.D. Power and Associates and safety data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. The result, according to the magazine, is "the best combination of critical acclaim and long-term value."
Ford nabbed six of the 21 categories that received awards this year, the Focus, Fusion, Fusion Hybrid, Taurus, Escape and Edge getting trophies. Toyota and its Lexus and Scion sub-brands took another five, the Tacoma and Tundra owning the two categories given to pickup trucks. The other ten awards were split between Honda with three, Buick with two, and one each for Subaru, BMW, Hyundai, Chevrolet and Mazda.
