For a couple of years now, you can rent or as the current terminology goes, subscribe to an array of amazingly pristine and restored examples of classic Toyotas from the Kinto Vintage Club in Japan. Adding to a lineup that includes a TE27 Corolla Levin, a Z10 Soarer, and an A80 Supra is one fine off-roading legend.

For many fans of the Toyota Land Cruiser, the 70 Series is considered the peak generation. It is also the longest-running generation with the utilitarian classic given an extensive update last year. Kinto Vintage Club recently added a pristine 1995 example to its line-up, available for enthusiasts and those curious to try it out.

Rental fees start from JPY 30,000 (RM 875) for 8 hours and JPY 35,000 (RM 1,020) for a day. Enthusiasts can rent the 70 Series for a maximum of 5 days with JPY 30,000 (RM 875) for each additional day.

Mind you, this 70 Series is only available for rent for a limited time from 2 July to 15 September at the Land Cruiser Base in Kariya, Aichi, Japan. Land Cruiser Base is a place dedicated to Toyota’s legendary off-roading nameplate and is operated by Toyota Auto Body which is the manufacturing subsidiary of the Japanese giant.

The purpose of this rental service is for enthusiasts and the curious few to get back to basics with a classic 30-year-old off-roader. In its blog, Kinto Vintage Club described the refinement of the 70 Series as a bit of a step back from modern SUVs but it adds to the simplicity and charm.

The 70 Series offered by Kinto Vintage Club is a ZX variant powered by a naturally aspirated 4.2-litre inline-6 diesel engine hooked up to a 5-speed manual transmission. The 1HZ powerplant produces a maximum output of 131 PS/285 Nm.

Creature comforts are limited to air-conditioning, power steering, power windows, and electric door mirrors. The only source of entertainment comes from a 1-DIN radio so you might need to pack a Bluetooth speaker if you want to play your favourite tunes.

The ’95 Land Cruiser is mostly in stock, original condition with a few aftermarket additions including a vintage three-spoke Momo steering wheel and a pair of Bride front seats that do not look too out of place in this classic.

So, the next time you take a trip to Japan, skip the hour-long “Mario” go-kart-style session around Tokyo and take the longer scenic route with a classic Land Cruiser instead.
