Originally an agricultural manufacturer, Santana purchased a CKD (“complete knockdown kit”) of Land Rover parts to assemble at its plant in Southern Spain – essentially building the vehicle under license. Santana made adjustments to the Land Rover 109 platform.   Since the Series III discontinued in 1983, Santana updated the front grill and fenders to reflect the new Defender 110 styling.  If there are any Santana experts – please share your comments (we are interested to learn more about anything that distinguishes the Santana from those assembled across the channel).

We like the functionality of the Land Rover interior.  No frills dash and power nothing.  At first glance we could have mistaken “Santana” with the band rather than the manufacturer.

The front seats appear to be aftermarket but are tasteful.  Overall condition appears to be great.  Seller says it has always been garage kept and in dry conditions.  No apparent rust, dents, scratches, or tears.
