BaT Auction: 1969 Land Rover 88 Series IIA Santana

This 1969 Land Rover 88 is a left-hand drive Series IIA model produced by Metalurgica de Santa Ana S.A. in Spain and was acquired by the seller following its importation to the US from Colombia in 2015. Finished in light green over black vinyl, the truck is powered by a 2.25-liter inline-four paired with a four-speed manual transmission and dual-range transfer case. A refurbishment performed prior to its importation reportedly included a repaint along with replacing the tan canvas top, seats, fuel tank, brake components, and more. This Santana is now offered with import documents, recent service records, and a clean Florida title.
