Buyer beware !

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/DEFEN...orcev4exp=true

I have gotten three emails about this listing already asking about importing it . Not sure what this is-suspect its a Santana but its definately NOT a 1986 110. The VIN is NOT a Land Rover vin.

Your definition of cool and mine diverge somewhat.

VIN is VS*******
Does that indicate Venesualen origin?
Santana produced these in brazil right?, but I'm just guessing about Venesuala.

Either way, man! That thing is fugly!

The factory was in Linares, Spain, my take is the Vin is VS due to the involvement with Suzuki at that time ( before iveco and after land rover )

And I think you wee looking for Venezuela

Yeah it's obvious to anyone "in the know" when you spot the leaf springs sticking out there.

And all the other ugly bits like the roof etc.

I posted about this listing here on December 12th. So obviously not a Defender I'm amazed people would be taken in by it, only takes a little homework to know what you are looking at.

90% of the questions on here could be answered with a few seconds on google ... Clearly we have a lot of 'Bing' users on the board.

I think "buyer beware" is a little strong, "buyer take note" may be more appropriate. Like the Italian Minis, I know of many owners who have no idea they are Inocenti's and not Minis. Still fun.

In Costa Rica, the only way to make a Series II Santana is the Vin, everything else is near identical. And some Ticos think Santanas are better than a UK built LR.

There were some Santanas built using CKD kits and assembled in Costa Rica.

All Santana pre Suzuki were CKD, that was when Land Rover allowed them to built their own Series trucks them and made them change the name from Santa Ana to Santana. ( and Yes assembled in CR and Brazil )

But then it bankrupt or the government took it back and Iveco came to the rescue

The Turbo Le Cars were THE hot and cheap ticket for show room stock class in the late 70s. Very quick thru the twisties.

Oh, yes, lots. Most don't note Santana on title either, vin is only give-a-way.
