1987 Land Rover Santana 2500 DC / Defender 90
This is a 1987 Land Rover Defender Santana DC 2500 edition that was imported from Valencia, Spain in 2019. It has a fully rebuilt 2.5 liter 4-Cylinder 12J Diesel engine and 5-speed manual gearbox. There has been a lot of money invested in this truck! It even comes with a $22,000 receipt for recent servicing included! Its next owner will be one extremely lucky individual! Rust free and refinished inside and out in a wonderful color combination, it's a beautiful truck with fantastic curb appeal. The classic Defender 90 body style has been stripped and refinished in "RAF Blue," the Land Rover color supplied to the British Royal Air Force, with the (completely removable) roof set off in Indigo, and color matched wheels with oversized tires. Inside, the front seats have been recovered using new foams and a combination of back sides with tan/white/blue multi-stripe cloth seating surfaces. Four individually-folding rear jump seats have been reupholstered to match, and they can be used for normal seating, folding up out of the way, or removed entirely in minutes, allowing exceptional flexibility of the rear compartment. Comfortable and stylish, the color scheme couples classic British Military styling and modern touches. An updated Defender grille and modern LED lighting front and rear subtly modernizes the look, combined with short rear bumpers and other details. Underneath, the chassis is rust free and straight. With a recently rebuilt drivetrain, it runs and drives excellent with no mechanical needs. The fresh and legendary "12J" Defender diesel engine has been recently overhauled from the block up and fires up quickly. Clutch takeup is correct and the truck changes gears up or down crisply. The factory power steering is precise and direct, with a light feel at parking speeds and pleasant weight on the highway. With the well-damped suspension, the Santana feels planted and sure in all conditions. Everything works as it should. With the brawny, muscled-up good looks of a late Defender, fully sorted and ready to go, this truck is ready for its next loving caretaker. A superb value and exciting opportunity!
