Fantastic Land Rover 109 Convertible Series III year 1976 and original Left Hand Drive vehicle. It's got 3 doors and the motor is in very good condition. Long Hard Top with two windows per side and a rear door in Limestone colour are also included. Brand new seats.
Fuel type is diesel and motor is 2.25 liters inline 4-Cylinder & water cooled. Motor is running very good.Original left hand drive vehicle with less than 60.000 kms. Tow bar included. Gearbox and Engine working very good. One of the hardest 4x4. The vehicle has been very well treated and it keeps most of its original parts.
This is an opportunity to buy a good appreciating classic Land Rover 109, original and very solid. VIN NUMBER:E-60636699.VIN number is European and will not appear in an USA database.
The Land Rover Santana's were built better. Particularly in the late 1960's and throughout the 1970's when Land Rover England was in the tight-fisted grip of British Leyland, Solihull assembly quality was poor and BL's investment in improved tooling and updated assembly techniques was essentially nonexistent. Land Rover England in Spain on the other hand was relatively flush, and invested heavily in improved tooling. The assembly process in Spain was superior, too, resulting in much better screwed-together vehicles. The Land Rover Santana is not the poor brother to the UK Land is a far superior vehicle in every way.

Here you are some comments I recently wrote when selling other Land Rover through Ebay:

I received a question about the spares for Land Rover. I want to share with you the answer of a person from the States who owns some of them. Hope this issue is clear:

"I have been buying, selling, restoring, driving and repairing Land Rovers for the past five years. Solihull and Santana alike. In that time, I have owned and worked on more than sixty different Santanas. SIXTY. Right now I own four. I buy everything I need from Paddock Spares in the UK (a Land Rover parts house) and in the USA, from Rovers North. In 99% of the cases all parts are identical. And in the very rare 1% of the cases where it isn’t (late 1970’s brake boosters, for example) the Rover part can be fitted with minimal hassle.

The idea that “Santanas aren’t Land Rovers” is an almost uniquely American prejudice, and invariably comes from the mouths of people who have never personally owned or worked on them. Those who have taken them apart and put them back together again know better. Santanas were built under license in Spain from 1959 to 1983, using CKD’s (complete knocked down kits) from Solihull. They are, by and large, identical.

A list of parts I have purchased for Series III Santanas, all from Paddock Spares, and which all fit perfectly, includes crankshafts, valves, connecting rods, driveshafts, ball joints, springs, suspension bushings, clutches, brake parts, seats, tops, body panels, glass and window seals, master cylinders, chassis cross members, door latches, and more. Are there differences? Yes. The Santanas are built better."

I got one more question about the shipping. Yes, shipping and USA import taxes and fees are included in the price if reaching the reserve met. It includes:

- Shipping from Spain to the US (if you are not from the US please consult me).- Custom brokerage fees and import taxes (custom clearance).
You just collect the vehicle at the port, take it home and get your State plate. I may also transport the vehicle door to door.
If reserve price is not reached, I will be helping you with the shipping process at no cost (shipping cost and brokerage fees on the buyer). I have already sent some Landies to the US and it is a very easy matter for me.

Another question I got...about getting the Land Rover plated in the USA. Hope it's well explained below:

"Importing a vehicle over 25 years old... .No problem, some forms, but easy to do. The DOT (Department of Transportation) has a 25 year cut off and the EPA has a 21 year cut off, so on an older Land Rover you are all set, no real hassles as far as there are not huge modifications from the way it came from the factory. It is a simple legal process."

I add the following comment attending to a question:
The vehicle remains totally in original condition with the exception of the paint and the seats. Old seats at sent with the vehicle, they are ok but some broken parts due to the age (front seats and rear benches with metallic structure, completely original). It is very rare to find a Land Rover 109 from 1976 in this original condition.

I have been requested to provide more information about importing a classic vehicle into the US, here you are:

What are the requirements for importing classic or antique vehicles / cars for personal use?

Generally, classic or antique vehicles are exempt fromEnvironmental Protection Agency(EPA) andDepartment of Transportation(DOT) pollution and safety requirements.

If the vehicle is at least 21 years old, there are no EPA compliance requirements upon importation.A motor vehicle that is at least 25 years old can be lawfully imported into the U.S. without regard to whether it complies with all applicable DOT Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSS).You should note that the25 year period runs from the date of the vehicle's manufacture.If the date of manufacture is not identified on a label permanently affixed to the vehicle by its original manufacturer, to establish the age of the vehicle, you should have documentation available such as an invoice showing the date the vehicle was first sold or a registration document showing that the vehicle was registered at least 25 years ago. Absent such information, a statement from a recognized vehicle historical society identifying the age of the vehicle could be used.Classic or antique vehicles are subject to a 2.5% duty rate, which is based on its worth at the time of import.

I got a question about the mechanical condition of the vehicle:

- The vehicle has recently been checked and serviced. It is in perfect driving condition, no leaks, everything is working as it should be.
