For Sale: 1980 Land Rover Series I in Lithia Springs, Georgia


Vehicle Description

The original and still undefeated champion of go-anywhere, do-anything utility has to be the evergreen Land Rover. This remarkable 1980 Land Rover Series III Santana is a rarity, especially in left-hand drive. It makes for a desirable setup that also continues this 4x4's tradition of being the first over terrain where many others can't follow.

The Series III is part of the original Land Rover evolution. So the well-presented aluminum body keeps that absolutely iconic shape. The secret to this car's uniqueness is in the name. Santana assembled Land Rover kits for the South American market. So this Colombian import means a life in a warm-weather climate and it comes in left-hand drive... two things that are a desirable rarity when looking at a classic Land Rover. This example is finished in a soft green that just looks like it's ready for a jungle adventure today. It even has all the right features for a true voyager, like the classic solid off-road wheels, full-size spare tire mounted to the hood, and even a trailer hitch. And while the full package announces to the world this is rugged and vintage, also take a moment to recognize a few handy recent investments. There's a new khaki soft top that looks terrific against the green, the turn signals are now bright LEDs, and fold-up side steps now make it easier to hop inside.

Just like the exterior, the interior keeps the classic style with just the right well-placed upgrades. For example, the front seats have the clean and complete look of a more recent investment, and you even get proper shoulder seatbelts. The stock-style middle seat still comes with the sale, but right now, we bet you'll appreciate the cup holder center console even more. But even with the upgrades, you never lose that Land Rover ruggedness you love. It has a terrific classic feel with the thin/grippy steering wheel, tall gearstick, Veglia gauges (speedometer is in km/h), and proper red and yellow levers for four-wheel drive. The rear is built for plenty of function. You have a drop-down tailgate to add big cargo, and the hallmark jump seats allow you to bring along plenty of family and friends whenever you like.

The 2.25-liter motor is part of the robust tradition of durable Land Rover power. And this continues to run like a well-maintained classic. The four-speed manual gearbox is a full synchromesh setup that makes the Series III desirable, and the control it provides is the true secret for how these Land Rovers conquer every hill they see. And the two-speed divorced transfer case is another key to the go-anywhere ability. But the overall condition of this one doesn't look like it spent its life off the pavement, and even power brakes make it a bit more everyday easy.

If you're a true lover of the outdoors, this is the ultimate tool to get to your favorite places. And even if you just are going to the hardware store, this looks awesome rolling through town, too. Call today!!!
