KENWORTH LEGEND SAR
50TH ANNIVERSARY EDITION
RELEASED IN 2021
Released in conjunction with Kenworth celebrating 50 years of manufacturing trucks in Australia, the 50th Anniversary Edition Legend SAR is modelled on the iconic W900SAR, built and sold in Australia from 1975 until 1987 and the first Kenworth model designed, engineered and built in Australia specifically for Australian operating requirements.
With its sloping bonnet and raised cab position, allowing for the first use of under cab battery and toolboxes, the W900SAR (SAR standing for ‘Short-bonnet Australian Right-hand drive’) was a fusion of the W900AR and S2 models.
While more than 45 years have passed since it first went into production and other SAR models have ensued, the allure of the original ‘SAR’ still remains and is reignited with the release of the third in the series of Legends, the Legend SAR.
