The sad part is, about 75% of those hit home with me. And even more ironic, I think more applied to the 1983 & 2006 trucks that I have than to the 1971!

In Ca. those would be special construction vehicles and are titled as such. I'm not sure how the Ariel (or similar type vehicles) handle their registrations as I believe they come with VIN #'s from the manufacturer and are titled as an Ariel. Also, you can't have a replica titled under the original manufacturer's name (in Ca.), only as a special construction vehicle. Much like a replica Ford Cobra, it's titled as special construction vehicle with the model year being whatever year that specific vehicle was actually built (assigned a VIN #). Things differ as you get into donor or rebuilt vehicles with an original US titled frame, or with aftermarket frame swaps.

This particular vehicle (and the seller's sales ads) got me interested in how it was actually titled/registered. Per the DMV, this vehicle was originally titled in Ca. as a 2006 Santana as golden747 said. Shortly after the title was issued by an area DMV office, it was rescinded by the DMV when the paperwork reached Sacramento and the error was noticed (lack of supporting paperwork to show this vehicle was legally imported or legally crossed into the US for later sale, and meets federal standards for 2006 vehicles in the US).

Is this the same vehicle discussed here?

http://grabawrench.com/for-sale-santana-ps-10/

Apparently it is now a 1981 and so legal to sell and own. Miraculous!

Indeed the same. The link on Page one still goes to it.

Good afternoon.

I have a 1987 Land Rover Santana D90 2500 Diesel. Itís essentially a Defender D90 assembled in Spain and Iím wondering if Standard Defender or other Land Rover parts will fit for the following applications:

Front Brake Calipers L&R
Front Brake Disks L&R

Rear Brake Drums L&R
Rear Brake Shoes L&R

Wheel Cylinders L&R

Front Drive Shaft

Rear Drive Shaft

Swivel Ball



Transfer case



Sincerely,


George Johnson

Are you saying the Santana from Hell is my new best friend or do you know someone who can give me a hand? I'm having a little trouble figuring out how this website works. :\

To be serious... You may be on your own. I'm not sure if anyone has a parts catalog for them or sell specific parts.

As above, they are not Defenders. They are much closer related to Series trucks.

Nooooooooo! You hear about people putting parts from different vehicles on all the time. Hasn't anyone ever tried (and hopefully succeeded) in putting Defender or other brakes on a Santana? Wasn't it a kit land Rover sent to Santana in the first place? I can't imagine the Spanish investing a whole bunch of time and energy into making separate drive shafts or wheels..... or should I just blow up the nasty D90?

Evil!

@George - email nick@DutchSafarico.com for parts

To answer your question, no, most parts specific to D90s will NOT fit.

There will be some parts that are the same as a Series and others that they made. I don't think there are any knowledgeable people on here. Maybe there is a Santana forum somewhere.

Second that... we get requests from Santana owners that mostly own Series 4s.
I have a parts list and George has the workshop manual in "espana".
George is fluent so I see a USA based parts niche going concern evolving with a new knowledge base coming up in the future.
