1983 Land Rover 109 Santana (Dealer)

Good afternoon,

We've posted before, but to reintroduce ourselves: We've started a small vehicle importation company focused on bringing antiques back from Spain. We're a 2 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 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. This vehicle was purchased in October, shipped over in November, and delivered to the dealer last week.

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

1983 Land Rover 109 Santana
- 2.25L Diesel 4-Cyl
- 5 spd manual transmission
- 9 seats
- Clear CBP, DOT, and EPA paperwork conveys with the truck
- Asking $20,000
- Located in Richmond, VA

We had a little adventure getting it back to the Port, but it made the entire spine-of-Spain trek: http://www.valenciaclassicvehicles.c...tana-109-0115a

From Santiago de Compostela, Spain. Fresh Grasmere Green paintwork with Alaska White safari roof over gray and black vinyl interior. 2.25L Diesel. 5-speed manual with "campo" gearing provides a cruising speed of 80kp/h and occasional top speed of 100kp/h. Nine seats. Unusual and desirable options include parabolic springs, power steering, auxiliary fuel tank and three windshield wipers. Anything not beautifully original has been restored. No rust anywhere, and frame refinished in factory black paint. Fresh glow plugs, glow plug wiring, and most engine gaskets. Recently driven from Santiago de Compostela to Valencia. Near perfect condition throughout.

Body: There is a scratch on the left rear quarter panel, and the right rear taillight has a crack.

Tires are new with lots of life. Push button start in the center of the dash.

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

Bill & Paul

Correction: Truck arrived in Baltimore 2/9/2015, and arrived at the Dealership yesterday.

Lesson: Always be careful with copy & paste

Wow, beautiful and tastefully done truck. Incredible value IMO as well. So nice to see a survivor surface now and again. Clay

I usually don't like Santanas, I've seen a few in person, and the one that is local is just ugly as sin.

However, this particular vehicle is pretty dang cool. It oozes "obscure classic vehicle" in a way that few cars can get away with.

This is the type of rig someone should get and just keep exactly as is. Just use it and have fun with it and preserve it.

this is a beautiful looking Santana, I really wish I would have looked harder to find one in this condition. Does this truck have power steering, disc brakes, parabolic leaf springs, and a huge rear axle from the factory. If so I am very surprised that it does not have the super turbo motor, since it has the super grill.

Good Morning all,

The truck is sold. Ironically, after sailing into Baltimore and making the 3-hour trek down to the Dealership in Richmond, it'll be turning around, returning to Baltimore for good.

We're bringing back an 88 in very similar condition and color. Should arrive mid-March.

And lastly, if anyone has experience or thoughts on the 6-Cylinder Santana motors, I'd be interested in hearing them. The Cazorla trucks aren't pretty to look at, but since that motor would fit in a truck like the one listed here, we're curious what the interest (or fear) in such a motor might be.

For reference, from what I've read, Santana offered 2 motor variants over the years besides the standard 2.25L 4-Cylinder Diesel:

1) 6 Cylinder Diesel. 3.3L. Same design, with 2 extra cylinders. 94 hp / 153 lb ft
2) 4 Cylinder Diesel Turbo. 2.25L. Same design, with turbo. 75 hp / 132 lb ft

Curious what you all think. Thanks in advance!

I have a Santana, it's the 2.25, but being from Spain, I guess that is a logical way to own a LR.
The 6 cylinder has the main issue of the parts available, AFAIK, since it wasn't really a very spread out engine. Cazorlas were amazing, but when the engine goes, you are better off with a Tdi than trying to rebuild because of the scarcity of parts.
I plan to bring my own 1977 SIII 88 state side soon, but I would be curious to chat about your importing process.

Thanks David,

I can see some issues with gaskets and such, but if the 6-cylinder was based on the same 2.25L design, wouldn't most of the internals theoretically be interchangeable, and consumables (glow plugs, etc.) be the same as your other motor?

I'm playing devil's advocate. Thanks for chiming in!

Happy to help you think through the import side of the house.

Bill

Right, I meant the special things for it: head, exhaust, ...

If you read Spanish, there is lots of info about them in the CLRTTE and the Santanaligero forums.

Apart from the obvious, the block and the head everything is the same. The 6 cylinder 3.5 is just a 2 and a quarter with a couple of extra cylinders slapped on. As for rarity well my friend at Compra venta - Camion vehiculos militares ropa uniformes militar ejercito venta has 3 new heads sitting on the shelf as well as a wealth of NOS spares. You just have to know where to look. ;-) Header well that could be custom made just like any exhaust.
I have been selling Land Rover Santana for a few years and have come to find out that most things can be bought from Paddocks in the UK for these cars or a mixture of Series and Defender items can be made to fit. Not many items that are different. I sold to a guy in Texas and he wassaps me from time to time for unique parts. I find them with ease.
For example if a door window winder mechanism went then it is not hard to source another. I have started to gather a few items myself. Switches on the Supers are pretty ropey on them but a carling switch is about the same size and so much better than thee crusty old switches.
