If you're looking to go anywhere, look no further. What we have here is a 1978 Land Rover Series III 88 Santana with rare features. Every inch of this Land Rover has been inspected and gone through to ensure dependability and reliability. This is as close to a frame off restoration as you can get without taking it off the frame! All gaskets have been replaced, Rocky Mountain Parabolic suspension added with over-sized tires, updated interior with extreme attention to detail.
World wide, it's quite understood you can't go on a safari in anything but a Land Rover. Discover your daily safari today and stand out amongst the sea of Jeeps. Take off the top and turn this Land Rover into a complete convertible and enjoy the scenery - you can eve pop off the doors for a full alfresco experience.
This series Land Rover is equipped with Power Steering and Overdrive! Left Hand Drive and rust-free, these extra features make this 88 very rare amongst comparable Land Rovers. Sure you can find other rovers for less money but they are probably littered with rust and RIGHT HAND DRIVE. Who knows what parts are added to some of these other rovers out there, not many have the updated parabolic suspension. If you want a project car buy a cheaper Land Rover.

Jump in the driver seat and turn the key to warm the glow plugs. Turn the key once more and she will crank up even on the coldest single digit mornings. Take off in 1st and enjoy climbing your way though the gears. Shifting is tight and a pleasure and other series Land Rover enthusiast will envy you as you kick it into over drive and zoom past Land Rovers lacking this gear. Worried about stopping? No big deal she stops with ease and you will look too good driving this 88 to even worry about traffic.
If you look up the definition of a rugged vehicle, this is it. Lacking unreliable computers and unnecessary features that will break, this is as simple as it gets with everything you need to rescue any jeep out there.
Everything about this vehicle is solid, gauges work, doors and windows lock, she runs and stops great. SERIOUSLY THERE IS ONLY ONE THING MISSING...a driver and new home. Adopt your Land Rover today and start making lasting memories on the road.
