Motorcar Studio is pleased to offer this 1967 Land Rover Santana Series IIa. Manufactured under license primarily for the Central and South American markets, the early Santana (1967 and older) matched the Land Rover specification almost exactly -- so parts interchangeability and availability is not a problem like it can be on the later Santanas. This Series IIa has been fully restored both cosmetically and mechanically to a very nice standard, and also has some desirable performance upgrades such as power steering and power brakes.
Very straight alloy body with good gaps and nice paint quality; all seals and gaskets were replaced prior to paint. Nice glass, lenses, trim and wheels. Soft top with windows in great condition and all cords, hooks and grommets are functioning as they should. Steel frame is in excellent shape with no rust and no evidence of former rust repair, ugly welds, etc. The overall finish quality and attention to detail are far better than what you typically see on a Santana.
The interior presents well and has been nicely restored to its original specification. Restored banjo steering wheel and gauges look fantastic. All gauges, switches and lights are working as they should. Three-point seat belts are fitted for the front seat driver and passenger.
All major driveline components have either been replaced or restored. The 2.25 gasoline four-cylinder engine was rebuilt; it starts and runs well. It's mated to a four-speed manual transmission; clutch, gearbox and transfer case are all working as they should. This Land Rover has been upgraded with power steering and power brakes, so it's considerably less tractor-like in its driving dynamics. It's far easier and more enjoyable to drive around town than one without these upgrades.
