1987 Land Rover 109 Santana - Turbo (Dealer)

1987 Land Rover 109 Santana - Turbo

From Jaen, Spain. Limestone-colored, nine-seater Series-III. 2.25L Turbo Diesel mated to a four-speed transmission. Truck has dual fuel tanks from the manufacturer. About 95,000 original miles. The interior has cloth seats in the first two rows, with vinyl jump seats in the rear. The turbo adds a nice little extra pop to the truck. The exterior is unrestored and up close shows it's age. Sections, such as the tailgate, have been repainted quickly. It wears a full roof rack with an access ladder in the rear. Another great candidate for a driving restoration or trail truck. The bottom is oxidized but I haven't found any structural rust.

1987 Land Rover 109 Santana Turbo
- 2.25L 4-Cylinder Turbo Diesel
- 4-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 $11,900

Interior: The front and middle row seats are fabric, with a few small tears as pictured. The rear vinyl seats are intact and swing freely, adding another 4 seats to the rear. Has a functioning radio with a single speaker, as well as functioning heat, lights, signals, etc. Dashboard is straight, if not slightly discolored with age.

Exterior: The paint is tired, and has been redone in spots. The roof rack and ladder add a nice visual and functional touch. The later-style front grill is reminiscent of it's UK brethren, and from what I understand, a carryover from when Santana added a six cylinder motor and required the extra room.

Drivetrain: All things are strong here. Low range and 4WD both engage easily and without issue. The truck fires up quickly, and the turbo is a pleasant surprise; not overwhelmingly different, but around the roads of Richmond it made life a little easier (or other drivers a little less frustrated... your pick).

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:

Bill I'd say you're fairly spot on.

Hi Mudd. We've only owned it for about 4-5 months, and half that time it was parked on a boat. That said, when I went to drive it this past Saturday, it was the first time it'd been fired up since it arrived, and it did so quickly and drove fine. We had a pre-purchase inspection conducted in Spain prior to departure, and they didn't turn up any concerns. It's an older truck that shows some use, but the four-door turbo combination was interesting, and something we wanted to try out prior to the arrival of another turbo next month.

I know little about the mechanical differences between Santana and LR of the same era, but looking at the shift knob would suggest you have a LT77 5speed box not the 4speed you credit it with in your description.
Want to take it out for another drive and see?

So wrong

The LT77 was first used on the 4 cylinder 90's and 110's from 1983 through to the 1990 Model Year.

The LT77S first appeared with the introduction of the Discovery for the 1990 Model Year and was also migrated to the 1990 Model Year Defender along with the introduction of the 200Tdi Engine.

The main differences between an LT77 and an LT77S is as follows. The LT77S has double cone synchro hubs and larger bearings on the layshaft. The last of the LT77 (Suffix G gearboxes) had the larger bearings on the layshaft but no double cone synchro's. Both boxes sufferred from the mainshaft wear problem but this is caused / cured by the transfer box input gear and not the main gearbox mainshaft. The MOD also used a variant of the LT77 with a lower ratio first gear in their 2.5 NA diesels. This gearbox has a 51A prefix. As it appears that you are fitting a V8 then you could really do with having the larger layshaft bearings which means an LT77 suffix G or an LT77S.

The pitfalls of advertising a truck too quickly: Copy and paste.

Yes, with the turbo and 5 speed this truck can do 100kph with relative comfort, and could, against better judgement, be pushed past that briefly.

Thanks all for the correction and detail. Rocky, I owe you a beer. Drop a note when you're in DC. Cheers.

For all you guys who are experts in the Santana model, do the doors from 110's and other components fit directly as replacements? For example, if you were replacing the doors, seats etc, on this 109 would it be the same as replacing a door from an English made 110? Thanks

Parts Availability

I am wondering if people could weigh in on how available parts are for these trucks? If I were to get one, I presume I would wrench on it myself and figure it out but are manuals, etc. available in English?
