Macon, Georgia, United States

The rarest of the rare medium wheelbase 40 series Land Cruisers. The only model with a forward facing rear bench seat. Being a 1981 BJ44V, this is the preferred late model cruiser with front discs, factory a/c, incredible L-Package (aka LX Package) cloth with vinyl interior, 4spd transmission, and the very rare cabin controlled factory PTO winch. Further L-Package compents are the white steel wheels, chrome grill and bumpers, and chrome license plate lights. This rig has spent 99% of it's life with the owner of a resort hotel on Lake Akan in Hokkaido Japan. The doors still have the pre-delivery plastic covering the door cards, the floors are covered in custom cut and stitched plastic and carpet on top of it. The factory matting is under that and the pristine floor below it. All seats have full seat covers that may or may not be Toyota items but they are definitely vintage. This is why this truck is in the amazing condition along with it's very limited use. We were advised it was used as a snow plow and likely ferried guests to some choice spots near the lake. Finding any 40 series Land Cruiser, be it a FJ40 or FJ45 etc..., in this amazing original condition is almost unheard of. Although production numbers are unknown, the BJ44V was only produced from 1980-1982 based the information available. The Freeborn red paint is in fantastic shape as is the 033 white on the roof. There are a few very small touch-ups mostly along the drip rail. The chassis has been painted in places but was applied as preventative protection rather than to cover up rust/corrosion. This vehicle is likely one the cleanest most original land cruisers left. The local Atlanta Land Cruiser specialists, ACC Toyota, made the same determination. Noting there are rubber flaps around the radiator and other components that are rarely found intact let alone in the "time warp" condition as on this truck. Actual VIN is BJ44004631 and is too short for eBay. Vehicle will be sold with the following documentation. Original manual with service records.

Toyota Prius line may not reach 2013 sales target

Mon, 22 Apr 2013

2012 was a good year for the Toyota Prius line, the hybrid that started it all moving 236,659 units, being the best-selling model in California for the year and the Prius C (pictured) being deemed the most reliable car of 2012 by Consumer Reports. Then 2013 happened, and gas prices dropped more than expected, and people haven't been buying the little hybrids like they used to.
A report in Bloomberg says Toyota set 250,000 units as the Prius family's sales target for this year, but hits like the double-digit drop in year-on-year performance in February have helped lower 2013 sales by 8.4 percent compared to 2012, making the objective "a challenge" to reach. The declines in Prius sales come even as hybrid sales overall were up in the first couple of months this year, including sales of other Toyota and Lexus hybrids. Jim Lentz, Toyota's North American chief, said the Prius target would be adjusted if necessary.

Toyota RAV4 EV lease gets cut in half to $299/month

Tue, 27 Aug 2013

If you're in the market for a new electric vehicle, now is definitely the time to buy or lease. Following price drops on just about every other EV on the market, Toyota is looking to push a few more all-electric RAV4 crossovers out the door over the Labor Day weekend. The Detroit News is reporting that, through September 3, anyone looking to get into a RAV4 EV in Los Angeles or San Francisco, can get a deal: a $299 a month lease (no word on down payment, though) or zero-percent financing for 60 months for buyers.
The $49,800 RAV4 EV normally leases for twice as much - $599 a month - so this move could be an attempt to sell more of the 2,600 units Toyota has planned to produce. Or maybe, if you thought $599 was a fair price, you can now get two RAV4 Evs. Although temporary, the price drop comes at a time when many other EVs on the market have had their prices reduced, including the Nissan Leaf, Chevy Volt, Smart Fortwo ED and Honda Fit EV, not to mention already low prices for the Fiat 500e and Chevy Spark EV.

2014 Toyota Aygo marks the spot [w/video]

Tue, 04 Mar 2014

Following the leaked pictures we showed you yesterday, we have the full battery of images and info of the all-new Toyota Aygo, in addition to our gallery of live photos from the floor of the Geneva Motor Show.
Like its cousins from Peugeot and Citroën, the Aygo foregoes a diesel engine in favor of a highly efficient gas powerplant. The 1.0-liter naturally aspirated 4-cylinder turns out 68 horsepower and 70 pound-feet of torque. When it hits the market, it'll be with either a five-speed manual transmission or a five-speed, X-Shift automated manual. The former will help the Aygo return 57.3 miles per gallon and hit 62 miles per hour in 14.2 seconds. Opting for the X-Shift variant will net drivers 56 mpg, with 62 arriving in a leisurely 15.5 seconds.
We'll admit, aside from the fuel efficiency, there's nothing terribly great about those numbers. Still, with its compact dimensions - it's only 136 inches long - and a curb weight of no more than 2,000 pounds, it should prove tossable in the bends.
