For 1 year Toyota will sell a brand-new 30 year old Land Cruiser - Road & Track

Here’s the tragedy of the Land Cruiser Series 70: it was never sold in the United States, but an icon in Australia and South Africa, where they’ve been on sale continuously for 30 years. For 20 of those years, you could walk into a Japanese Toyota dealer and plunk down a pile of yen for a Series 70 pickup or SUV.

While the Series 70 soldered on in other markets, for 10 years, Japanese enthusiasts begged the company to bring back the stalwart truck. For the Land Cruiser’s 30th anniversary, they’re going to. There’s one catch and one silver lining. The catch is that they’ll only be sold for a year in Japan, and then it’s off into the sunset, again, for the 70. The silver lining is that at current exchange rates and excluding taxes, they’ll be the equivalent of $34,650 US, which seems like a steal!

Alas, with a structure dating back to 1984, we’ll never see a brand new LHD Series 70 sold here. But the 25-year rule means importing RHD versions from abroad is a real possibility…
