Spanish Series III: 1974 Santana 109

A vintage Land Rover wagon is on our roster, and has been since we first saw one lumbering around town when we were kids. Though this Spanish built Santana doesn't have the full panache of its English counterparts, there's a lot to like here. This truck could be especially dangerous for us since it’s close by, we have some 912 money in our pockets, and the ever present itch to tick another car off or our roster grows exponentially with an open garage spot.

Early Rover, Late Motor: 1988 Range Rover

This Land Rover has the makings of a "best of both worlds"-mobile. It combines the ruggedness (hello exposed door hinges) of the early US Range Rovers with a rebuilt 4.2 liter V8 from a newer truck. It's currently on offer by the owner of a Land Rover restoration shop in Scottsdale and we'd be eager to see what a rig like this sells for.

Refined Off-Roader: 1993 Range Rover LWB

We feature plenty of these "classic" Range Rovers but this one has a lot going for it including: low mileage, no rust, and some nicely executed off-road mods. Add to that a location that's an easy drive from Moto Roster HQ and a reasonable reserve and we're itching to cross a LWB Land Rover off of our Roster.

OCD Level Work: 1995 Range Rover

This 1995 Range Rover is a final year model, and even though it has 167,000 miles, it looks like nearly showroom new thanks to a thoughtful owners and an impressive restoration. Top that with our favorite Cornish Cream color and we're wondering how many of our current cars we would need to sell to bring this Rover home.

Roster Checker: 1994 Land Rover Range Rover

September 20, 2016 range rover, land rover

There are classic Range Rovers on lots of rosters here, and though this one isn't anything particularly special, the price is right, it's nearby, and looks reasonably clean. If the price stays low it might be a great way to put a classic 4x4 in your garage and check a vehicle off of your roster.

Bottom Dollar Defender: 1994 Land Rover NAS D90

This US market 1994 Land Rover Defender has over 200,000 miles on it, plenty of rust, and according to the seller "dents on just about every panel." As the price of these NAS Defenders continue to skyrocket, it will be interesting to see what this low spec, rode-hard, no reserve example will go for.

Trans-Atlantic Partnership: 1983 Land Rover + 2008 Silverado

Our project 912 continues to occupy a lot of our Moto Roster time, but it has had brief moments of being a driver and not a project so hopes are high. As we sort through the ramifications of an engine swap performed by an unknown previous owner, we are taken with the GM hardware that has been shoehorned into this 1983 Land Rover 110.

$12,500 Almost Defender: 1978 Land Rover 109 Santana

We're fans of the vehicles that the boys at Valencia Classic Vehicles import and based on their eBay account, it looks like they just had a ship come in - literally. They have a wide array of Spanish Santana's to choose from but this scruffy 109 driver caught our eye.

Diesel Disco: 1995 Land Rover Discovery w/200Tdi

This 1995 Land Rover Discovery is on offer by Zombie Motors in Georgia who swapped a 200Tdi motor in place of the 3.5 liter V8. The truck itself is scruffy, but claimed to be rust free. If that's the case, this 5 speed, diesel Discovery for less than $10,000 could be worth a look.

Sub-5k Land Rover: 1991 Range Rover Classic

A 1991 Range Rover for less than $5,000 conjures images of rust, electrical nightmares, and lots of quality time riding shotgun with your local AAA driver. Even so, we're intrigued by this truck's history, maintenance record, and seemingly straightforward seller.

Topless Brit: 1985 Land Rover 90

April 29, 2016 land rover, 90, 4x4

As the weather gets warmer, our thoughts turn to open vehicles. While we love roadsters, our preference runs towards the "practicality" that 4x4's offer when it comes to open top motoring. With Summer fever kicking in, this Land Rover caught our eye with its LHD and stripped down simplicity. The shot if it parked next to a 110 and Syncro didn't hurt either.

Sleeper Diesel: 1995 Range Rover with a 300Tdi

How much is a 300Tdi worth? This 1995 Range Rover looks to be in slightly above average condition, but is commanding top dollar due to a ton of recent work, and more importantly a 300Tdi motor swap. We love these final year Range Rovers, and we love diesels but we're not sure if we love this one $17,000 worth.

25 Years of Range Roving: 1995 Range Rover LWB

This Rover must be rare because the seller uses that word no less than 5 times in the description. Though it has been hanging around on eBay for some time, there's no arguing that this Aspen Silver over Ash Gray truck looks to be in great condition even with over 200k miles. The 1995 model is generally regarded as the year to have, and maybe this 25th anniversary edition is the one to have now that it is old enough to drink.

1995 Fresh: Range Rover Classic

March 01, 2016 range rover, 4x4

It's hard to argue with the attention to detail that went into restoring this 1995 Range Rover Classic. New paint and upholstery look showroom new, but the work that has gone into this SUV goes way beyond the surface. Swapping a refreshed 4.2L engine into this SWB is a move we've never seen but we appreciate the effort. This thing looks like it just rolled out of the showroom in 1995, so crank up the Hootie and the Blowfish and take a trip back in time.

2 Doors & 3 Pedals: 1990 Range Rover Classic

February 23, 2016 range rover, 4x4

We see older 2 door Range Rovers floating around here and there, but this 1990 model is fresh off of qualifying for the 25-year importation rule so it's a bit novel. On paper this truck should be very appealing for the right buyer, but we're still thinking about yesterday's 109.

Perfect Spanish Storm: 1983 Land Rover Santana

February 21, 2016 4x4, santana, land rover

We featured another Spanish import from Valencia Classic Vehicles last week and mentioned that we were initially drawn to a different truck that had already found a buyer. That guy backed out, but his loss could be your gain. 4 doors, seating for 9, a turbo on the diesel, and LHD add up to a perfect Rover in our book. Add to that Warwick Green with Alaskan White paint and a through refreshing and we're trying to figure out how to make room in our garage for this rig.

Friday Garage Builder: 3 Quick Takes

A German, a British ex-pat, and a Colombian all walk into a bar. It's not the setup for the world's most obtuse joke, just a description of the 3 cars in today's Friday Garage Builder. Today we have a high mileage 944S2 for low money, a sweet Land Rover Santana, and to mix things up a bit, a guy in Columbia handmaking aluminum shells inspired by Porsche 550s.

First of the LWB: 1993 Range Rover Classic

We've had a Range Rover on our roster since day one and we're thinking that a West Coast import might be the way to go. A car in average West Coast condition like this one would be advertised as near-mint in the salt covered roads leading to MR headquarters. This LWB County has high mileage but all the right options and no rust. If the price leaves room for shipping, this California girl might need to get her snow boots out and head East.

Spanish Rover: 1981 Land Rover Santana

If you can get past the horrible paint and "gold package" that has been added to this 1981 Land Rover Santana, it could be a great chance to get that Series III that's on your roster for a good price.

Blue and Green Ovals: 1961 Land Rover Series IIa

It's a thought that everyone has had, "why don't car companies sell a classic body on a modern chassis and get the best of both worlds?" A guy in Alabama has answered that question for us, if a 1999 Ford Explorer qualifies as modern.

Diesel Land Rover 110: Roster Fodder

A diesel Land Rover 90/110/Defender has long been on our roster. This one, with some title questions, could be rig that moves it from our roster to out garage.

The Best 4x4xFAR of 1990

A Range Rover Classic is on lots of people's rosters, including ours. While the 1995 model is generally the consensus choice, the 1990 has a lot of winning points.
