1983 Land Rover Santana 109 Series III - Richmond, VA (dealer)

1983 Land Rover Santana 109 Station Wagon, Series III

- 2.25L four cylinder diesel
- 4-speed manual transmission
- Four-door "station wagon" body in Limestone over new black vinyl
- Clear CBP, DOT, and EPA paperwork conveys
- Located in Richmond, VA (Japanese Classics, LLC)

This four-door 110 was recently imported from Spain, where we found it in the Jaen province which is known for being among the driest areas of Spain. It is extremely rust free and the chassis is entirely straight and clean. Floors, bulkhead and bottoms of doors have only minor, superficial corrosion with no perforation.

After purchasing it we found it ran pretty well, but got into sorting the mechanicals and ended up rebuilding the engine and cylinder head, plus replaced the clutch, the brake master cylinder, front and rear brakes, brake lines, flex hoses, battery, glow plug wiring, power steering pump, five new tires and tubes, all new fluids and filters, ball joint grease, etc. It is now the best driving Series III we have had, fires easily with absolutely no smoke, pulls and shifts beautifully, and does everything the way it's supposed to. And it doesn't leak anything.

Would be an awesome trail rig as-is, or you can finish restoring the interior and other little details while you're driving it. Either way, all the expensive, important work has just been done.

Available for sale at $19,500

Exterior: Limestone paint has been resprayed at some point in the recent past, and shines well, but the details of the finish are to a "driver" standard, with some minor sags, overspray and fisheyes here and there. Panels are straight and undamaged.

Interior: Front seats have been replaced with new "deluxe" units from Paddock Spares, UK and the seat frames were replaced at the same time with NOS Solihull frames from John Craddock, LTD. Rear seats have been freshly reupholstered with new foam. The remainder of the interior is original. Dashboard is complete and functional, and all gauges and lights work correctly. The interior is unrestored and shows its age, but suffers from no outright damage. An original Santana center console box is included, but would need to be reupholstered and mounted.

Drivetrain: Fresh engine with only 120 miles since overhaul fires quickly and pulls strongly with no smoke. Shifts easily through the gears, and feels as smooth and robust as any Series III we have driven. Brakes are strong and quiet, and the power steering is light and direct.

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

----------------------

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:
