1981 Land Rover 109 Santana (Dealer)

1981 Land Rover 109 Santana, Series-III (Dealer)

From Jaen, Spain. Limestone-colored, six-seater Series-III. 2.25L Diesel mated to a four-speed transmission with Overdrive. About 80,000 original miles. No rust. Incredibly solid, very original truck suggested to us by our mechanic, Tom-the-German, who maintained this truck for the seller for a number of years. The exterior is un-restored but very straight. No noticeable or significant dents or dings. The “Limestone” paint is all original, and flat, and it has the side stripes that were standard in the 1980’s. It also has a bull bar on the front and the small surrounds around the headlamps have been painted black. Another great candidate for a driving restoration, but it’s affordable and rust and free and mechanically perfect, so it would be a great “adventure vehicle” too.

1981 Land Rover 109 Santana
- 2.25L 4-Cylinder Diesel
- 4-spd manual transmission, with Overdrive ("Superdirecta")
- 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 $15,000

Interior: The front seats have been reupholstered in fabric, with the bolster torn where the driver rubs against it (thigh) to get into the vehicle. The re-upholstery was done with a bit too much fabric, challenging the driver not to rub against the fabric when entering. The second row seats are original and in good shape. This vehicle does not have opposing rear seats. Gauges all work properly and the truck has heat as well. Windows roll easily, doors lock properly, etc.

Exterior: The paint is tired but original, and has a nice patina for the truck. Very few scratches and dents, leaving a very nice canvas for a fresh coat of paint if the new owner desires. I've tried to provide a bunch of underside photos; I realize it's dirty (it's supposed to be, after all) but the vehicle is wonderfully straight and rust-free.

Drivetrain: Strong and solid. Low range engages without issue and pulls the truck up some steep wet inclines easily (I can attest to this). Truck fires up with the glow plugs held for a few moments; a younger battery might help, as the vehicle comes from a part of Spain that rarely dips below 45 degrees and I've been starting it here in Virginia on mornings below freezing. The Normal vs. Superdirecta knob engages the overdrive, adding a nice little bump to cruising speeds. The vehicle does come with a fifth wheel, currently located in the back.

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:

I hope a deal like this on a 109 comes around when I have a built up bank account. I love these things.

Put together a video to answer some questions for someone, thought I'd share. Sorry it's goofy. A few extra photos attached of floors and under the doors. The rear doors do show rust on the bottoms, though the fronts, and the floors, are straight.

Many thanks. We're currently working to open our process to others, adding a way for us to facilitate sales and logistics from Spain. The goal is that buying something from the EU becomes as easy as buying something off eBay, with the added peace of mind that you've got two Americans going to bat for you and driving the whole process. We're running a pilot or two at the moment, but if you're ever interested in plucking something rare and different from Spain, Portugal, or France, drop us a line. Aside from being easy, our hypothesis is that this model will let folks pluck vintage trucks at a great price as well. Cheers and thanks for the note.

We got our Journey on the vehicle uploaded. Paul is taking part in the Maroc Challenge right now in Morocco, charging across the desert in a two-door '89 V8 Range Rover Classic. Wish him luck:

Beautiful truck, quick question on this, are their any major differences on these vs a 109 from the UK besides the side the drivers seat is on? Are parts interchangeable ?


Best Regards,
Mike

Hi Mike,

As you get later into the 1980's, parts interchangeability does drop off. There were different differentials used, for example, which makes sourcing a replacement prop shaft unique (1") difference. That said, after playing with these for nearly two years now in all shapes and forms, we haven't had a problem yet that wasn't solved by either Rovers North or Paddock Spares. Even the prop shaft 'issue' on a later '80's truck was resolved for $250 by a local driveline specialist. I'm sure others have valuable input regarding some of the specifics across the line, as some of the folks here even are located in Spain.

If you're interested in the truck, drop me a line. We're interested in finding it a new home.

Many thanks,
Bill
