88/109? Simply "Land Rover"?

Y a-t-il une autre vue? (pour déterminer la longueur de la Land, donc savoir si 88 ou 109)

It is a Series III (grille, hinges) and, far more interesting, it is a 'Land-Rover Santana'!
From this image I am not able to tell the wheelbase. Any chance for other images?

More than I can ask for!

Now I can see that it is a 109" Station Wagon.

The following car is a CJ-5 (or CJ-6) made by Willys (1954-63), Kaiser Jeep (1963-70), or AMC (1970-83). Depending on where this film was made it could also be the Argentinian 'IKA Jeep JA-3UB' (1956-) or Brazilian 'Willys Overland do Brasil CJ-5' and later 'Ford-Jeep U50' (1967-83).

Is this the one that gets buried in a sandstorm? I recall that one didn't have a windshield.

Watched the movie, this isn't the one buried in a sandstorm. Also, not to step on Alexander's toes, but this one is an 88" two door version, not a 109" station wagon, as seen here when it smashes into a Jeep later (note the short distance between front and back wheels):

Also, 2-3 stars since it's used in two scenes and participates in the chase after the jet through the city.

It was a licensed version built in Spain by Santana Motor of Linares (Andalusia), which at those times (1968) changed its name to 'Land Rover Santana SA'. They were also the distributors of Land Rover products in Latin America and Africa, and they also shipped in some local countries CKD kits to make them assemble locally. Santana-built Land Rovers were slightly different to the ones of British Leyland and received adaptations for the local markets.

This specific one, if the scene was shot in Morocco, could even has been built locally.
