1971 Land Rover 109 Santana (Dealer)

1971 Land Rover Santana 109 2-door (Series IIA)

From Casillas de Coria, Spain. Marine Blue with Alaska White safari roof and wheels over gray cloth. 2.25L diesel, 4-speed manual transmission. 87,000 original miles in the care of just one owner. Used regularly as a bread delivery truck (and occasional ambulance) in a small village in western Spain near the Portuguese border. Starts easily, and runs and drives exactly as it should. No structural rust anywhere, and no rust in the chassis. All the upper bodywork (white painted part) can be removed, allowing the truck to run fully open, with the windshield either in place or folded flat. In unrestored and largely original condition, wearing extremely charming patina. Some dings and dents, and some cosmetic rust in hinges and bolts and such. Recent wing mirrors, battery, front brake pads, brake master cylinder, and brake fluid flush, and ready to drive anywhere. A wonderful, evocative example of the well-loved Series IIA Land Rover, with a truly unique history, ready to write the next chapter of its story on this side of the pond.

1971 Land Rover 109 Santana
- 2.25L 4-Cylinder Diesel
- 4-spd manual transmission
- 2-door truck, seats 3, with removable hard top
- Clear CBP, DOT, and EPA paperwork conveys
- Located in Richmond, VA (Japanese Classics, LLC)

Available for sale at $14,500

Our journey and more history on the truck is available here: 1971 Land Rover Santana 109 2-door — Valencia Classic Vehicle Consulting

A few notes on the truck, to include some of the recent work the prior owner did, as well as what we've done since picking it up:

Interior: The original seats had met their match after 44 years, so the previous owner had them reupholstered in the fabric you see in the shots. Seats three across the front, with the rear wide open ready for it's next great adventure. There's some light surface oxidization on some of the interior of the upper bodywork as shown in the photos.

Exterior: The wheels and white upper bodywork are both recently repainted, and while there's some spots of over-spray evident, when taken in context along with the original blue bodywork, it looks just fine. The logo from their bakery remains on the door.

Drivetrain: It just received a new battery, which I mention as you reference Montana - we put in a big-'ol-honker of a battery, rated for 1000 CCA at 32-degrees / and 850 CCA at 0-degrees (Far). The truck fires up quickly and without holding the glow plugs here in Virginia. We just put on new front brake shoes, and replaced the master cylinder.

Misc: It'll need tires sometime in the near future if you're going to go offroad. It does include a spare, 5th wheel.

Please drop us a note if you're interested. Thanks so much!

Bill & Paul

----------------------

We've posted before, but to reintroduce ourselves: We've started a small vehicle importation company focused on bringing antiques back from Spain. It's a fun project that lets us see, touch, and drive some neat classic cars and trucks we might not otherwise have the opportunity to. We're a two man operation, with Paul based in Javea, Spain, and the other (me) here in Virginia. Our focus is to shed light on the otherwise murky process of bringing vehicles back from overseas and bring some honestly and transparency to the process. To that end, Paul works hard to document the process of finding the vehicle, capturing a story and photos on the trucks. We bring some transparency to bare by selling our trucks through a dealer. This truck is being offered by Japanese Classics, LLC in Richmond VA where it comes with a clear VA Title.

Our company is called Valencia Classic Vehicles. Our website is here:

That's no good. It deserves better than Richmond. I need it in Falls Church.

Make it yours, and I'll cover the trucking to get it back up to Falls Church! I'd love to have one of our vehicles end up in my neck of the woods for once.

If I had the cash, I'd buy this - surprised that someone hasn't jumped on it yet.

Body work

Please excuse the Landy newbie here however I have been looking for a 109 or 110 for a reasonable price for a father/son project and I like this truck. Question related to body work on a Defender aluminum body - is it impossible (expensive) to remove some of the more aggressive dents? Thanks

phenomenal choice btw. short answer is yes. probably the way to go about it is study the techniques typically used and practice on something somebody is throwing away. it would be a shame to throw away anything original to the truck. the patina is priceless imo. spend the time necessary learning the mechanicals and keep her simple and as original as possible.
