ACTUAL VIN# VSELBABL8AZ100684
NOTE: THIS VEHICLE IS LOCATED IN DENIA, SPAIN, but I ship tothe USA. Please check my feedback, and please read the entire listing before bidding.
I am an American, living in Spain, and I sell and export vehicles to the USA regularly. Although shipping costs are not included in the price of the sale, I work every month with an established worldwide shipper and will work directly with the buyer to arrange delivery to the USA. I will drop the vehicle off at the port of Valencia for you at no additional cost, prepare all the proper documentation for shipping to the USA, and handle all the US customs and importation on the USA side.
If you would like me to handle the shipping, customs paperwork, and everything for you, the cost is a flat-rate of $2500, port-to-port, to your choice of Baltimore, MD or Jacksonville, FL. No additional costs. No work on your part. You just pick the car up from the port, fully cleared and released.
Once the vehicle is in your possession, you will also have all the documents you need to register the car in 49 states (California excepted). I can even arrange transportation within the USA, from the port to your driveway. In short, I am here to help with every step of the process of delivering this vehicle to you.
You are of course welcome to fly here and test the car for yourself before you bid, but if that is not feasible, I will be happy to take additional photos, videos, etc. and send them to you. Whatever you need. We can speak on the telephone, or by Skype, so you can see the vehicle in real time before you bid.
If you have any questions, please ask and I will post as many answers here as possible.

WHAT DOES IT LOOK LIKE?
Rust free and updated inside and out for modern daily use, it is a clean, straight and wonderful looking Santana ready for adventure.
The bodywork, wearing largely original Chamonix White paintwork, is straight and free of filler. Black Defender alloy wheels, a "final edition" grille with integrated LED lighting and early split series doors (front and rear) have been combined with a new Exmoor black canvas roof and matching galvanized hoop set for a modern and flexible body style that allows easy open motoring. A military style front bumper and short rear bumperettes completely the look.
Inside, the front seats have been replaced with twin Sparco sport models covered in high-durability black cloth with white stitching, and the four individually-folding rear jump seats have been reupholstered to match.
Underneath, the chassis is entirely free of structural rust and wears its original black chassis paint with no dents, scrapes or other signs of off road use. There is no rust anywhere - not in the doors, floors, longitudinals, crossmembers, or bulkheads.
With the canvas roof in place, it is a weatherproof truck that you can drive like any Defender soft top. If the mood strikes, in about ten minutes you can remove the canvas roof and tops of the doors, and you are in a fully open truck with nothing between you and the great outdoors. And it doesn't get much better than that.WHAT'S IT LIKE TO DRIVE?
With low original miles and no mechanical needs, it drives as you would expect. Perfectly.
The trusty "12J" Defender diesel engine has excellent compression and fires quickly with little warming of the glow plugs needed even in cold weather. At idle the motor is quiet and refined with absolutely no undue smoke or clatter. Clutch takeup is correct with a firm pedal and easy modulation, and once underway, the truck pulls lustily and changes gears up or down crisply, with no hesitation or balkiness.
The factory power steering is precise and direct, with a light feel at parking speeds and pleasant weight on the highway. It goes where you point it, and with a healthy, well damped suspension the Santana feels planted and sure in all conditions. Brakes are powerful and sure with no noise, vibration or pulling.
Everything works. Every gauge, every light, every switch.
These trucks are great drivers. Never known for speed, they are nonetheless perfectly suited for modern use on any kind of roadway, including highway travel, and acceleration is brisk enough to easily keep up with modern traffic to overtake slow traffic when necessary. Remarkably comfortable on tarmac, it is of course off road where any Land Rover comes into its own, and the Santana 2500 is no exception. Relatively compact overall dimensions, precise power steering, plenty of ground clearance and legendary rough-stuff prowess makes it ideal for use on game trails, logging roads, or powering through mud and sand on its way to your favorite fishing hole, surf break, camping spot, or high mountain vista.
In an attractive color combination and with the brawny, muscled-up good looks of a late Defender, fully sorted, serviced and ready to go, it is a rig that can be easily used on road or off, every day, without worry.
