This Series III 1986 Land Rover Santana 88 has had a recent, full nuts and bolts restoration and is an amazing example of this now collectible classic. It has had just two owners from new and the last owner bought it as a project with just 17,000 documented km's from new.
It is ready to be driven and enjoyed and will steadily appreciate in value the longer you own it.
The Land Rover series I, II, and III are off-road vehicles produced by the British manufacturer Rover Company. The Land Rover was the first mass-produced civilian four-wheel drive car with doors on it. In 1992, Land Rover claimed that 70% of all the vehicles they had built were still in use.
Land Rover entered production in 1948 with what has later been termed the series I. This was launched at the Amsterdam Motor Show. It was originally designed for farm and light industrial use, with a steel box-section chassis and an aluminium body.
The successor to the successful series I was the series II, which saw a production run from 1958 to 1961. It came in 88 in (2,200 mm) and 109 in (2,800 mm) wheelbases (normally referred to as the 'SWB' and 'LWB').
The series III had the same body and engine options as the preceding Series II, including station wagons and the 1 Ton versions. Little changed cosmetically from the II to the series III. The series III is the most common series vehicle, with 440,000 of the type built from 1971 to 1985.
Santana Motor S.A. was a Spanish car manufacturer based in Linares, in the province of Jaén, Spain. From 1968 Santana began to develop its own versions of the Land Rover series models, developing new engines and new models and this close relationship with Land Rover led the company to change its name from "Metalúrgica de Santa Ana, SA" to "Land Rover Santana, SA"
