1986 "Land Rover Defender" Really?

Some folks will try to pass of anything as a Defender these days;

Looks like a Santana to me. And for $15,000 excluding shipping, a pricey one at that!

It is a Santana...

You can see it on the grill.

I know, more than that though there are several give aways, including the different grill and light set up, the lack of wheel arch eye brows, the different bulkhead style (no bulkhead vents) different shaped windscreen, interior trim and dash styling, door mirrors and roof line. And thats just what the photos show. $15k Series 111 in fancy dress anyone?

Doesn't surprise me. Technically, the Defender didn't come out until late 1990. Very similar to the 90/110 that replaced the Series in '83. This is not a Defender by a long shot!

Technically it's not even a Land Rover either! Its a leaf sprung version of a Series III built after Land Rover stopped making Series vehicles.
