    ............ready to find a new home in ca ......................

    * Through a friend in South America, I have a line on this oldie. I know the seller; his son bought an 04' DII from me. They have this old Landie just sitting in their property. I think it's coming home to me.

    Purported to be a 1987 109 ( Checked the title / Certificate of ownership), with a V8 ( ? ), I assume the 3.5L? Dual Strombergs, 4 spd manual, No AC, has rebuilt PS, drum brakes. Approximately 132K ( KM).
    ZERO RUST. Starts runs and drives well. Even has an LPG set up ( which I do not particularly care for).

    Opinions ? According to the list, it makes it, unless I am not reading it correctly?

    I own a Santana, if it is coming form south/central america it may be a Santana.
    Santana's are very close to the original Land Rovers and in some cases have nice stuff on them (6 cylinder engines,...).
    However, Santana's *never* used the V8 from factory, only 6/4 in line. And I've never seen a LPG setup on one, so this may be indeed a UK LR.
    If you have pictures, I'll be happy to check then out and give you my opinion on the truck. I've seen quite a few hundred Santanas over the years, the factory was about 100 miles from where I used to live...

    So what's the outcome? Sounds like a good story without an ending

    Well, David turned to be to be right.

    It is a Stage 1.

    Paid $6K for it.

    It's sitting at the Port of Callao in Lima. Peru, while I have someone there negotiate the shipping ( actually, grease the right people's hands to "expedite" their customs hold). Shipping is supposed to be $1400.

    No idea what it will cost to get through Customs here.

    Has a new clutch and brakes in front. Needs a right windshield.

    Believe it or not, paint IS original. Had my friend go through it with a fine-tooth comb. No sign of repaint anywhere.

    That's where it is as of now....wish me luck !
