Default 120/140 speedo no abs desig in vin ??

Hi everyone ,I'm a new member to this site so please bear with me with these questions which probably been answered before..first of all my wife and I purchased an 02 black sedan new with wood accents, well in 06 I traded it in for a dodge ram truck ( she never really got over it) so in 07 I ordered from the factory a black 08 conv ( Basic) with a tubo and ABS ( it has a nov 07 build date)we had a woody kit installed by Surf City Crusiers here in Huntington Beach anyway two weeks ago I came across an 05 sedan , black woody kit (aftermarket of course) turbo ,ABS ,moonroof ,heated seats, the works at a Toyota dealership in Riverside Calif Blue book was 9800 we got it for 6500 ( I told them I would buy it if they put a Toyota gas pedal in it...just kidding) anyway they were happy to get it off the lot, and we were really happy to get it ,now we have two black woodies and our neighbours think we are crazy for sure (we also have a collection of Vettes) Sorry ,finally here are my questions 1. in my manual it shows I should have a 140 speedo in a turbo whether or not it has the high HP turbo or not in the 05 car ,mine reads 120 in both cars ( I know the high HP version was not available in 08) so I assume the 120 speedo is right for 08 but what about the 05 ? Question 2 , my insurance (Farmers) state that I can't get an ABS discount on my preimum on the 05 because the Vin does not show it can equipted with it ( its on the dash and has disk brakes in the rear) they won't take any proof other than a factory or dealer readout, is there any other way to verify this ?? Thanks in advance

Welcome to the forums.
My '05 turbo has a 120 MPH speedo - guess only GTs have 140.
With rear disks, you have ABS.
When you turn key on (not start) ABS light comes on, and when you start it goes out after a while, right? Call insurer and see if you can show it to them.

You can go to a dealership and have them pull the build sheet for the 05 and see what it was equipped with. If your 05 is a turbo lite then it may have disk brakes but not ABS. Can't remember seeing anything like that but it could have been an oddball. Does the 05 have traction control? If it does then it should have ABS. If the 05 is a Touring Edition then I believe ABS was an option.

They split ABS, 4-wheel disk and TRAC.
You could get ABS w/ rear drums & no TRAC, if you got 4-wheel disk, it was ABS w/TRAC.
It was simpler in earlier years, ABS meant 4-wheel disks and TRAC.

Thanks for the response..the 05 does have trac and the 4 wheel disk and the light in the dash that says ABS..I'm assuming Farmers can pull up the build sheet because I'm not sure how they can be so positive it doesn't have it, anyway I'll try the dealer (Toyota) the description of equiptment that was on the window sticker and on their enternet site didn't mention it either Thanks for the info

The Toyota dealer will not be able to help you with the build sheet. Give me the last 8 digits of your VIN and your current mileage and I'll pull a build sheet for you.
