We have acquired a very nice Land Rover Santana 88. It was originally bought in 1979 and since then has travelled no more than 12,375 km! This real gem is unsurprisingly completely in original condition.

The bodywork has been beautifully cared for. The panelwork aligns neatly and the paintwork is in a good state with only a few slight signs of normal usage. The steel rims are colour coded and shod in proper off-road tyres. Your eye is also drawn to the original mudguards. The whole car just oozes authenticity. This car has clearly never been abused as a workhorse in tough circumstances.

That picture is confirmed when you look inside. The interior is as authentic as the outside. The instrument panel and controls are laid out in order for you to be able to locate them under every circumstance. This is no luxury touring car but rather one piece of useful machinery that is more than able to cope with the job in hand. The cabin offers room for three and there is also room in the back for 4 people to take their place on the side seating. So, while it is a short wheel base vehicle, there is more than enough room to transport your friends on a trip to the forest. The upholstery is in fine original condition.

The under Land Rover licence-built Santana engine has been well maintained and runs fine. The transmission offers the choice between high and low gearing and works well. The brakes and suspension are exactly in keeping with Land Rovers finest tradition.

To cut a long story short; this is not a Land Rover Santana for someone looking for a workhorse with some life left in it. This is a car for some enthusiast who will care for it in the same vain as the previous owners had done since 1979. Not just a good looker but a joy to drive as well.
