1982 Land Rover 88 Santana (Dealer)

Good afternoon,

We picked up a lovely Land Rover 88 Santana 'Normal' in the Southwest of Spain a couple months ago for a buyer here Stateside. When the truck arrived, the buyer wasn't able to follow through on the purchase, so rather than hold onto it for awhile, we've put it up for auction on Bring a Trailer this week, with a <$10k reserve to ensure it sells and we can move onto the next project.

1982 Land Rover 88 Santana | Bring a Trailer

1982 Land Rover 88 Santana 'Normal'
- 2.25L Diesel 4-Cyl
- 5 spd manual transmission
- 3 seats up front, 2 benches in the rear. Total seating is between 5-7 people, depending on the size of your passengers
- Clear CBP, DOT, and EPA paperwork conveys with the truck
- Located in Richmond, VA

No real adventures this time, but a lovely and unique piece of Spain to be able to explore while heading to see this truck: 1982 Land Rover Santana 88 Normal — Valencia Classic Vehicle Consulting

From Sanlucar de Barrameda, Spain. 137,000km. Fresh Sage Green paintwork with Old English White roof over black vinyl interior. 2.3L Diesel. 4-speed manual transmission. No rust. Frame refinished in factory black paint. Mechanically perfect, and runs and drives as new. No smoke, idles smoothly, and accelerates very well. No leaks. "Normal" specification differs from the more common "Especial" trim by utilizing Land Rover taillight assemblies instead of bespoke Santana units. Upper bodywork is removable to convert to an open configuration when desired. Beautiful condition throughout.

Body: It's probably a couple-years old restoration. I don't have the documentation (not a surprise for Spain) to outline what work was done, and when, but the preponderance of the paint is beautiful for a daily use truck. There are a couple spots where the body or roof have been repaired quickly and painted over poorly. The upshot is there is no rust on the truck.

Drivetrain: The motor and transmission feel great and have no issues. To steal Paul's word, 'no signs of significant leaks.' I'd like to learn how to get these things to hold their fluids someday.

Misc: Tires are new with lots of life.

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. In this case, the 109 is being offered by Japanese Classics, LLC in Richmond VA where it comes with a clear VA Title.

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

Bill, why don't you bring this up to Cars & Coffee tomorrow morning? I'm tempted to attend, this could put me into committing.

Thanks everyone!

It's sitting comfortably in the safety of the dry indoor dealership down in Richmond. Our 280GE will be here in a week or two, and I'll definitely be swinging up to C&C with that.

If the weather holds up, I'll pull one of the Datsuns out of the garage and meet you up there in the morning. Cheers!

I'll likely be there in the 130, I'm sure you'll be able to track me down!

Actually not true...that's where I pulled the tools out of when you had the trouble starting that diesel Santana last fall! Or were you too preoccupied getting your rig running to notice ?

Oooh! I just assumed it was a 110! Shame on me. So, a little bit of both though... I definitely was in a subdued state of panic trying to figure out what I'd broken

I have made it a point to tell everyone who encounters these trucks about that kill-switch plunger, recounting that story and my abject horror alike. Learn from my mistakes....
