TOTD: What Other Classic Vehicles Should be Put Back into Production?

Motor Trend logo Motor Trend 12/25/2014 Karla Sanchez

A little more than 30 years ago, Toyota debuted the Land Cruiser 70 Series, an iconic off-roader that's been lauded for its go-anywhere capability, durability, and reliability. Although it could take on virtually any type of terrain, the LC Series never set foot in the U.S. While customers in Australia and Africa have been able to buy the LC 70 Series ever since, the off-roader left the Japanese market in 2004, but was recently revived for JDM consumption to commemorate its 30th anniversary. We were fortunate enough to get behind the wheel of the legendary SUV and enjoyed every minute of it.

Our time cruising in the vintage, but still brand new, the LC 70 got us thinking. What other classics should be put back into production? Other classics that have come back from the dead include the lightweight "Special GT E-Type" continuation models, which will be built by Jaguar Heritage group to complete the original run from 1963. Another classic that made a brief comeback was the 240Z. In 1998, Nissan purchased a number of used 240Z examples and fully restored them to sell as new at select Nissan dealers. This was done to maintain the public's interest in the Z car before the 350Z arrived four years later.
