That will never happen. The 70 Series can’t pass US safety regulations and the diesel can’t pass US emissions.

No, I don’t want a 70 series and I suspect that while many of us are attracted to the forbidden fruit, I suspect most would not like to actually drive one on a daily basis. The solid front axle and leaf springs make it ride like poo, it doesn’t have much articulation in the back, and the diesel V8 is gutless with the factory tune.
Pretty much.
As a 75 owner, it's not in the same ballpark as the 200 (in stock form).
Go to your local Kubota dealer if you want an idea of how a stock 70 feels.
I actually plan on buying the aforementioned Kubota, Try commuting in a 1959 LR series I. To Rocky Flats and home daily, 43 miles RT. Loved every minute of it. I can't say the same for the folks behind me on HWY 93 though,lol
