KENWORTH LEGEND SAR
SALES OF THE 50TH ANNIVERSARY EDITION LEGEND SAR ARE NOW CLOSED
CONGRATULATIONS TO THOSE WHO SECURED THEIR VERY OWN PIECE OF KENWORTH HISTORY
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.
Under the hood is a Cummins X15 engine, specially painted in beige to commemorate Cummins' heritage.
Side-mounted exhausts include a wraparound cover, just like the old SARs, with exposed chrome elbows and 7” curved pipes to give the truck a commanding presence.
Flat windscreen B-series cab providing extra headroom and seat travel, delivering greater levels of comfort for the driver than the original SAR.
FRONT TURN SIGNALS
Round 4” front turn signals on the crown of the wheel arch reminiscent of the original SARs.

A traditional Kenworth bug and Legend SAR logo embroidered into the leather seats.
The interior of the Legend SAR has a premium feel and features diamond pleat trim with ‘Legend SAR 50th Anniversary Edition’ embossed into the rear wall and door trims and a wooden plaque on the glove box lid to identify the unique build number of each truck.
