Santana Motor S.A. was a Spanish car manufacturer based in Linares, in the province of Jan, Spain. The company was founded as Metalrgica de Santa Ana, SA and originally manufactured agricultural equipment. The company was set up with a startup of just 3 million pesetas, following a drive by the Spanish government in 1954 who were offering startup incentives to local businesses to encourage development in the Andaluca region of southern Spain. The company decided to expand beyond its original products line and entered into talks with the Rover car company in 1956 in an attempt to get a licensing agreement to build Land Rover series models in their factory, in a similar way to the Minerva company in Belgium, Tempo in Germany and Morattab company in Iran, all built series Land Rovers under license. An agreement was reached in 1956 and production began in 1958 it was licensed to build Land Rover models. The Santana Motor companybuilt series Land Rovers under license in CKD form (Complete Knocked Down kits); essentially parts were shipped over from the Land Rover factory in Solihull and the Land Rovers were built up from this kit at the Santana factory in Spain.
The Series II and the Series IIA are very difficult to distinguish. There were some minor cosmetic changes. Body configurations available from the factory ranged from shortwheelbase softtop to the topoftheline fivedoor station wagon. A 2.25litre Diesel was added to the engine line.
Theseries IIAis considered by many the hardiest series model constructed. It is quite possibly also the type of classic Land Rover that features strongly in the general publics perception of the Land Rover, from its many appearances in popular films and television documentaries set in Africa throughout the 1960s, such asBorn Free. In February 1968, just a few months afterits manufacturerhad been subsumed, under government pressure, into theLeyland Motor Corporation, the Land Rover celebrated its 20th birthday, with total production to date just short of 600,000, of which more than 70 percent had been exported. Certainly, it was while the series IIA was in production that sales of utility Land Rovers reached their peak, in 196970, when sales of over 60,000 Land Rovers a year were recorded. As well as record sales, the Land Rover dominated many world marketsin Australia in the 1960s Land Rover held 90 percent of the 44 market. This figure was repeated in many countries in Africa and the Middle East.
Competition to this Land Rover in 1966 included Fords Bronco, Jeeps CJ5, Internationals Scout 800, Nissans Patrol and Toyotas Land Cruiser. Documentation includes a Land Rover Series IIIIA Repair and Operations Manual.
