1977 land rover santana swb 88 inch diesel utility 4x4
do not ever think the santana is the poor relation. Its so the opposite.
and lhd being 40% more purchase price due to usa markets.

green photo is one we just finished. Purchased same original condition. Live the dream..pay the money..
your not leaving alive.


its dent free. Look at current photos..dent free.you are not being charged for the cosmetic dents.

look at the photos..see how it sits..the same as the restored example..its a very good land rover.
and worthy of using as it was intended or shiney..

front seats and floors are out in photos purely so we can inspect and pressure wash the underside.
we do this on ll our land rover..otherwise one cannot determine or clean vehicle properly.. rest assured nothing is hidden and everything can go back in.

last mot was 27 feb 2019. the last 6 months in spain.
registered new 19-sept-1977

this looks pants on the outside. Totally agree. But its original pants with only outer panels damaged. To be fair apart from one door a top tin basher would not buy any other panels.

but in real world it needs both outer front wings..maybe front light panels to make puka job. Talking shiney and new now..
two doors..complete. Santana uses series 2 or 3 doors..
rear door lower..or a re-skin..
roof needs just a tidy..
rear wings either repair or replace.
bulkhead is amazing. Like most -not all---from spain.
inner floor areas to cabin bulkhead needs repair panels like normal.cheap items

rear cross member is original and would be best replaced as its easy job.but not required as of yet for sure.would last years as is.

does it need anything to start using..nope.we use it every week on our land..moving trailers..doing handy work.

can come with original individual rear seats in back too..complete. So its a 7 seater.
seeatts are used and free but sooooo much better that new bench things they fold up too.

first photo is one just completed...was same as this one..£24760 later. Plus vehicle purchase.

you see the cosmetic restored ones for £25000 will this make one..
thats easy..yes.. we have no issues using this to make good..

or just enjoy it as is..like a land rover series is intended..

chassis is very good..been repaired a few times but not huge. Diesel tank looks fine.
outriggers fine..
door hinges some been welded in past..glass is good..fabric runner not.
now these santana doors front and back come apart in two parts..so one can drive with no side or back windows..cool eh.

santana come without seat belts in spain.
running gear report.
instant starter no matter how cold or how long its been standing.
its does start on 3 instant cylinders and then onto the 4th..so either injector-valve tight or piston ring..as it waits for compression.like 15seconds then clears totally..its not space ship..after initial starting its full power no smoke.. the exhaust manifold gasket leaking does not help..and exhaust parts are half pants. Exhaust is loose to manifold.
engine does not breath and runs nice and sweet for a 2250 diesel..santana improved these with 20% more power to pump when new (which gives smoke plum when revved..they all do) and some or most having deuz type valve gears instead of timing chain..one would not know if this has it until front off..

steering nice and polite. Like most santana..swivels good.
brakes feel fine work well no leaks. Standard land rover units.
hand brake is very good.
transmission..all good as just had a full rebuild we where advised and nothing tells us different. Floors are out to to check chassis and replace the reverse gear selector spring gate which lives on top of gearbox. I will do that.easy job.
gears are proper nice. All gears easy with high low and diff lock instant. Propshafts dont make a noise i will check them when next on the ramp.

we have a ramp here for any inspection during the no reserve auction.
afterwards can be made available after purchase..of course if you have the budget we have the knowledge and workshop to refurbish this to new if required.have the budget.

axles fine. Proper..tyres are tubeless modern radials. Black and round. Rims are original type and good..not perfect but could be. Spare wheel and nearly new tyre included.
comes with 3x front original seats..santana seats where good quality from new and worth re-trimming in my option..as it is..the trim is pants. But still nicer than replacement cheap seats.
rear seats could be made available..in original condition for almost free.

rear is proper solid clean and tidy..probably the nicest if not the only nice part of this santana..it has carried expensive famous cheese full story later.

any inspection invited including driving..starting from cold..ramp inspection.
all spanish paperwork is here including all mots..and if required the nova documentation if staying in uk.
we can deliver to docks..to your shipper..to your house..your mechanic. Your aunty or world shipping. Ask for prices. We have a covered slide bed transporter that does 12 mpg so no mates rates.
we are currently using it to tow things off the land..we have fruit land.so water table very high..
this santana goes into diff lock easy and pulls itself and anything else out..including recently a new horsey range rover..locked a treat dragging that off the field.

so the amazing history..
worth reading and buying just for history. One cannot make this stuff up.

bought new by the cheese maker.. northern spain.
it replaced a donkey to most days travel up the mountains and down again to check on the cheese in the caves in the mountains. Its seems..the caves make the spores than give the cheese its unique smell and taste..famous stuff..so the cheese cannot be made anywhere else.
his vehicle has gone up and down the mountain road and to town to sell the cheese. It was the cheese makers only vehicle ever.

move on several years..the mature cheese maker has attitude unworthy of the little proud very spanish whitewashed village..he has a scruffy vehicle and the the village complain to the mayor..who asks the cheese maker to tidy his vehicle as it is not in keeping with village.
so he does..badly fills the dents and paints it bright blue..one could see it ffrom the moon bright blue..
continues up and down the mountain like normal.

the mountain road is very poor condition. Council do a check on things..only 4 persons use the road ever..cheese maker being the main culprit.

mayor decides no money to fix the road and this year it was permanently blocked off to vehicles.

so the cheese maker sold the land rover to buy a donkey.
yago painted it sand again with help from stevie wonder and ray charles..

we can do a lovely photo portfolio if buyer is interested. Yago my friend travelled many hours to collect this vehicle and took lovely photos.

original once
superb history once

so its here for sale as photos or worse.
however..if i say something is good..its good..i do not need to be questioned.

the no reserve start price is less than we paid..plus transport and ferry..

its a bargain and will make a coolest land rover for you.

get bidding.

please no loony tunes, been there done that.
no spliff monsters. I cannot understand your dribbling.
sold already to two spliff multi millionaires who use the gear with no idea..
its a most honest, sits very well land rover..
if they dont sit well...dont buy them is our policy.

the most genuine land rover lhd for sale anywhere..and certainly the only one under 5 grand..yes we both know it.

2020 is your year.

we would consider something interesting. How marvellous..including things from usa..each to pay one shipping ..we have global shipping numbers so can arrange all that.
uk we need a smart van or motorcycle of same value or more.
end of auction. Immediate bank transfer required. I dont like caaash mate.
please read everything and digest and do ask relevant questions.

first funds its gone. Free storage here in kings lynn once item paid in full.
i only have one of these unrestored original vehicles. I have many like new lhd land rover santana. But only this one original with free dents.

ask anything. If i dont know the answer i have a secret weapon.
it seems my wife knows everything.
