1983 Land Rover 109 Santana Turbo Diesel / 5-Spd (Dealer)

1987 Land Rover 109 Santana - Restored Turbo Diesel / 5-Speed

Something a little different this time. This is our most ambitious project to date, having spent nearly six months undergoing restorative work in Spain prior to export. More details below.

From Leon, Spain. Warwick Green, Nine-seater Series-III. 2.25L Turbo Diesel mated to a five-speed transmission. Good for about 70-MPH. Fresh paint, bodywork, mechanicals, rust-repair, upholstery, tires, etc.

The full story of our adventures with this one can be found here:

1983 Land Rover 109 Santana Turbo Diesel


We bought this truck with the intention of bringing back a solid turbo-diesel with fresh bodywork. We had the graphics package removed and the body prepped and painted with a fresh coat, before sending it over to our mechanic for a once-over prior to export. His response was something akin to, "Beautiful truck. Shame about the rust." We were devastated. Turns out the floors and some of the outriggers had been rusted through and shoddily repaired. Rather than opting to sell a pig with lipstick, we went ahead and had our good friend Tom-the-German cut out and weld in all new replacement panels before sending it back to paint to touch up the new floors, bumpers, etc. We also had the front two rows of seats reupholstered along with new carpet. Tom also gave it a mechanical overhaul, changing fluids and totally rebuilding the turbo. The end product is something very unique.

Truck has dual fuel tanks from the manufacturer. About 72,000 original miles. Speedometer reads MPH and KPH. Interior seats nine, with freshly reupholstered seats across the front two rows in black vinyl with beautiful stictching. Five speed / turbo combination is good for about 70MPH, - maybe a tad more - with enough highway. I had it out for a couple hours this past weekend down in Richmond and hit 70 without stressing the engine. It's a rewarding truck to drive, but hey, I'm a bit biased.

1983 Land Rover 109 Santana Turbo
- 2.25L 4-Cylinder Turbo Diesel
- 5-spd manual transmission
- 4-door truck, seats 9 (2, 3, 4)
- Clear CBP, DOT, and EPA paperwork conveys
- Located in Richmond, VA (Japanese Classics, LLC)

Available for sale at $24,900

Interior: Front five seats were reupholstered in fresh black vinyl with beautiful stitching. Rear, opposed-facing four jump seats are still in great shape. New black carpet installed in the front, and fresh vinyl installed in the rear. Gauges and switches all work as intended, to include the spare-fuel tank switch which toggles between the main tank and the auxillary stored beneath the passenger seat.

Exterior: Fresh Warwick Green paint, the truck's original color, applied in August 2015. Rusty outriggers and floors were cut out and replaced with new metal sourced from Paddock Spares between August and November 2015. Four brand new tires were installed in late 2015 as well. Wheels and roof were painted and Alaskan White at the same time as the body.

Drivetrain: 2.25L Four Cylinder Turbo Diesel pulls strong, thanks in part to the freshly rebuilt factory turbo. Five speed transmission provides room to stretch your legs and hit 70MPH or so.

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:

My apologies for the photos. The sun bleached out the green this last weekend when I went down to snap shots in Richmond. The green is closer to the first couple photos shown in the above post.

Good looking truck. Did it sell? I'd appreciate your insight regarding compatibility of D100 parts with the Santanas. Thanks.

I have been following the threads on ValenciaCV's post for the 1987 Land Rover 109 Santana - Turbo (Dealer). The question about compatibility of D100 parts has been asked, but I don't see an answer. I have not done a search, but am asking the seller who has experience with these trucks about his knowledge of parts.

Bill (the seller) is a nice guy to chat with and I'm sure if you called him he could provide the information you're looking for about parts.

In my experience there are lots of parts which are in common but also lots which are not. There shouldn't be a problem sourcing parts but most of the usual Land Rover parts websites don't sell Santana bits so you would need to turn to suppliers in Spain. But I'm sure Bill knows more than I do on the subject.

Hi all. Very sorry for the belated reply. The sale did actually fall through so I came here to update and saw the chatter. I'm not going to have the most satisfying answer, but will try to talk from our experience. Engine components are obviously identical (consumables, etc.) except the turbos which are a Santana addition. If one were looking to replace a turbo you'd have a rebuild or replace option, and I can't speak one way or the other on replacement availability. I will happily do some research this evening. Drivetrain wise I've had to replace a prop shaft and haven't had issues (Rovers North helped ID the differential and we were golden). Interior bits... seats especially, are easy bolt in replacements from Paddock, etc. We've found that Santana specific bits like dash switches and the "Especial" trim level taillights are only available used. We have found a couple parts yards and individuals who have fields of Rovers ripe for plucking. We have before, and will again be happy to help our customers or others find these weird bits. I'd hate to scare someone away from a solid truck because a replacement tail light is hard to find. Thanks for listening. Bill

Thanks! We re-did that as part of our work prior to export. Paul has a wonderful upholsterer near Valencia who we're pleased to use on as many of our trucks as we can. From what I understand, he's been trying to convince Paul to do something in Leather for a year now. Sure... we'll just go Alligator while we're at it!

Cheers.
Bill
