In January 2020, Toyota began the Heritage Program to begin production of no longer available parts for the A70 and A80 Supra. In July 2020, Toyota added the 2000GT to the list of vehicles with parts production support through the Heritage Program.

Earlier today I made my frequent parts order call to my local dealership to get the common response, "part # XXXXX-XXXXX that you want to purchase is NLA". I'm a resourceful guy just like everyone on this site and I can do a lot to revive old worn bits but there is a limit to what can be rebuilt. Scouring fleabay for sketchy used parts isn't my idea of a fun afternoon; I'd rather be opening a Lexus/Toyota Genuine Parts box and installing a new part into my old cruiser. Why is Toyota supporting the Supra and 2000GT and not their most iconic/flagship vehicle, the vehicle that enabled them to enter new markets around the world and was largely responsible for the success of their company?

So I called Toyota's customer service at 800-331-4331 and spoke with Carrie W. (she's awesome BTW). I pitched this request and ended up on hold while she talked with a supervisor. She came back and said the supervisor response to my question was that they haven't had any significant volume of inquiry requests for adding the FJ25 or FJ40 to the Heritage Program, but they would send the program managers my request and... if they found there was enough demand they would likely add support for these vehicles. If you'd like to have access to new OEM parts that are currently NLA then please call the number and person listed above and put in a request. We may be able to get the Land Cruiser added to the Heritage Program if we flood them with requests. I may call them once every day until they get so fed up with me that they just do what I'm asking.

Also, my daily NLA parts order was: 17343-61020 hose between air bypass valve and check valve, 17342-61030 hose between smog pump and air bypass valve, 19220-61102 distributor vacuum advance (dual diaphragm style), 17810-61010 distributor air filter, at this point I gave up and ordered an air filter.

I just called. The rep will want to build a vehicle profile and will need the "VIN". You will have to explain that there were not 16/17 digit vin codes on the older FJ04s & FJ25s.

Would say you probably want to have a VIN of a US import vehicle. Doubt they would get a.lot of response on the FJ25 since such a low volume were ever made much less imported here. VINs for the FJ40 should not be an issue. Should have at least six FJ40s titled in my name as well as a FJ45.

We should make a list of common parts that we want to buy OEM here.

Just too bad can't convince Toyota they imported 83 FJ40 with the H55F five speed like they did with FJ60. Just adding in a bunch of 8/80+ VIN may be able to get read axle a with hand brakes, which is the best option in my opinion when adding a H55F. But only the correct 40 series top cover ia the only way to add an H55F.
