Freshly imported from Granada Spain and available now in Virginia: 1976 Land Rover 109 Santana pickup. This truck has the original 2.25L four-cylinder diesel, mated to a four-speed transmission and runs about 50mph, surging a little past then as needed. We had a bespoke wood bed installed when the vehicle arrived here in Virginia. The carpenters used a Virginia milled Walnut, and finished with a marine varnish to give the bed some extra strength in the elements. The truck has new custom upholstery as well, giving the truck a cigar-brown full grain leather look with durable automotive-grade vinyl. The wood steering wheel was the final touch to set it off just right. This was a fun project for us, and we hope the next owner enjoys it as much as we did.
Driveline. The Land Rover retains it’s original 2.25L Rover 4-cylinder diesel, mated to a four-speed manual transmission. High/Low transfer case engages with ease, and the transmission shifts without grinding or issue. We’ve seen the truck hit about 50/53mph on flat stretches. The truck has five relatively new tires which should be good for years of use.
Exterior. The Grasmere green paint was applied in early 2017. The quality is good for a decent driver, but overspray and runs are noticeable. The body has dents and scratches throughout. White roof and wheels pop against the green paint. Walnut wood bed installed Spring 2018, finished with a marine-grade varnish to provide a worry-free surface for use over the coming years. The truck itself is generally rust-free; floors, bulkheads, and chassis components are sound, though some rust is noticeable at the bottoms of doors and at the bottom of the rear tailgate.
Interior. The cigar-brown interior was reupholstered Spring 2018, when the wood steering wheel and canvas door cards were also added. Truck has all the typical Series-III Land Rover amenities, to include: Heat. That’s pretty much it. They’re fairly spartan. But that’s half the fun. Rear cabin glass slides open for rear access.
