Toyota is bringing back a classic to celebrate its 30th birthday.

Sales of the Land Cruiser 70 ended in Japan in 2004, but the company said it is responding to “widespread domestic requests for its return to sale” and expects to receive 200 orders a month for the one-year period. Powering the Land Cruiser 70 will be a 4.0-liter V6 engine mated to a five-speed manual transmission and will feature part-time four-wheel drive.

To further commemorate the Land Cruiser’s 30th birthday, the company will also offer the Land Cruiser ZX Bruno Cross and the Land Cruiser Prado TX Argento Cross special edition models.
