Car description

this is the nicest polite land rover santana 88 inch swb i have ever owned. and i have owned over 240 at least.i ship all over the world.for me..ORIGINAL IS EVERYTHING. if its not for you no problem. your choice. we all have choices.i buy only spoilt original examples..i love their history.. dents and all. and i drive them from spain to uk. over 2000 miles of slow noise.but in this case..i drove this towing another 88 inch santana on an A frame. pulled like a train. heheheheei even hit 60 mph downhill in france..this swb diesel is a late 1978, born 02-10-1978 and one owner all its life until a few months ESPECIAL MODEL. the civilian posh version.look at the alloy finisher on the lower edges.they normally fell off after a few years. but not this unit.tells me lots about the use off the vehicle. finding the alloy finishers still in tact. this one still has the dealers tag on front grill and rear window and mud flaps..41 years old mudflaps.this is also the only santana that the screen wash still works. little bits mean original.painted probably once or twice in its life. uva dries paint in hotter climates.88 inch wheel base you know. so allow me to tell you what you dont know.i am an engineer not a sales person so i talk nuts and bolts not shiny smiles.the spanish call it the later green block..the best 2250 diesel engine for series land fact they where military spec units from uk, 5 bearing engines and with santana drive gears instead of timing chain.santana lucas injection pump. 20% more power than uk models due to the huge hills in spain.decent brakes for a land rover.BEFORE SELLING..WE GO THROUGH THE WHOLE VEHICLE. photo evidence of everything we do.i really do make sure your trip from the docks is going to be safe and enjoyable.
YOU WILL HAVE BRAKES-STEERING-ELECTRICS-WATER IN COOLING SYSTEM AND EXHAUST.i see some other advertising and i would not drive to the end of my road in some which look uk we call it outside angel..dirty underwear and clean trousers.this unit has..light easy steering..try saying that with a uk series land rover. steering lock nice too.unique water drains on hard top which work drains from the roof of an old church..the rear door has both hinges on the lower with roof off...its only nuts and bolts to take roof off..the rear has a door still..front springs are new..within the last two years..rear are original and nice comfy worn feeling..sometimes replacements knock your fillings out driving.this unit has had expensive free wheeling hubs fitted from new. work fine..lighter steering..saves on tyre wear..drives better..this one has the big santana interior heater and demister all slide.engine is awesome original condition..needs nothing..good clutch and nice easy tight these land rovers are inspected twice a year by DMV in spain. this one november to may..then may to november..all old documents with sale including the current original clear title.miles of 45,000 odd is correct and in keeping. 60,000 km on speedo.
wheels and tyres i like to personally fit land rover defender modern wheels and tyres on my santana,s they drive much smoother..of course the original ones are available with decent tyres..buyers choice.but for road use..the defender wheel and tyre 7.50x16 is better.i have put photos of both for you to choose. for off road..go for rover got it right first go.
