1973 Land Rover 109 Santana
From Tarragona, Spain. Dark Yellow-colored, 5-seater Series-IIA. 2.25L Turbo Diesel mated to a four-speed transmission. It's an older restoration; the owner claiming it was done over the course of the past 5-10 years. The paint shows a little patina as a result, though the seats appear to be recent additions from Paddock Spares or similar. The engine fires quickly and shifts / drives strong. The vehicle is very, very rust free. We're quite pleased with this one; the upper bodywork (white) is removable, leaving an open body with window frames. The tires have a fair amount of life left. The truck is just a joy to drive.

Interior: The newer seats make the interior pop. The front has three across, with only two in the second row. No jump seats in this truck currently. The switches and indicators all work well, including wipers, etc.
Exterior: The paint has a little patina from age, but looks absolutely fantastic. The hood-mounted wheel adds a nice touch. Not much to add here - it's fairly spartan, but works great.
Drivetrain: Diesel motor fires quickly and shifts well. Low-range engages easily.

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.
