1987 Land Rover Defender

Are you in search of the most unique Land Rover you can find?
Shopping for the off-road enthusiast who has everything?
Want a ride that sets you apart from the crowd?
Meet the SAHARA - The definitive sport utility vehicle.
We have the ultimate Land Rover experience for you! Capturing the true spirit
of adventure, the SAHARA was created for the special few with an inherent
desire to explore.
While this truck started life as a capable Land Rover Discovery, through the genius of NCF, D.A.P. Enterprises and Performance Unlimited, this is now the most awesome and unique Land Rover in North America!
Engineered to withstand years of rugged service.
It starts with the full-length box section frame of uncompromising Land Rover construction, so durable it has become the standard by which all other sport utilities are judged. Add to that a custom body of high-strength steel tubing and you’ve got a rock solid platform on which to build a most capable off-roader.
The SAHARA’s tightly packaged body has minimal front or rear overhang. Approach and departure angles are 57 and 35 degrees respectively.
Axle ground clearance is 10.5 inches, and suspension travel is a whopping 11 inches in the rear.
Rugged. Long Lived. Capable. These are SAHARA hallmarks.
Its drivetrain is unexcelled for strength and durability, not to mention the ability to negotiate seemingly unnavigable terrain. The SAHARA’s permanent four-wheel drive eliminates the need to shift back and forth between two and four-wheel drive. Where extreme traction is needed, the center differential can be locked and shifted into low range. In this range, the SAHARA can actually climb 45-degree grades, or ford water nearly 20 inches deep.
If a road is impassable to a SAHARA, it is quite probably impassable.
The fuel-injected 4.0 litre aluminium V8 provides the muscle, the silky-smooth ZF automatic transfers the torque and the LT230 permanent 4-wheel drive transfer box makes sure that no terrain is too tough! That's right; this is the same drivetrain as used in the legendary NAS Defender 90!
Of course it retains the compliant road manners of a classic Range Rover with the plush long-travel coil spring suspension, sway bars, and 4 wheel disc brakes! Equipped with knobby BF Goodrich Mud Terrain KM2 tires on Defender Freestyle alloy wheels, this beast is unstoppable!
Simplicity and ruggedness are not the SAHARA’s only qualities.
We all know the area where the Defender is lacking is the interior; it may be a bit spartan for some. We have resolved that issue with the plush carpet, full featured soft dash, fabric seats, and phenomenal seating position! The doors are easily removable for a day at the beach or trekking to your favorite mountain top. If the weather gets chilly, just pop them back on in moments!
The D.A.P. SAHARA – a unique and authentic vehicle.
So you ask, how did this vehicle come to be? It all started with the robust Land Rover quality you would expect. Then NCF, maker of unique re-body kits from England came along and decided that there should be a Land Rover pickup. These kits are very exclusive, with just a handful made each year. When the Wizards at D.A.P. saw what NCF had created, it was decided that there should be one in the stable. This one is the ONLY one ever imported to the United States! That's right, literally this is the only SAHARA in this country!
Crafted by Land Rover Experts.
Once it was transported stateside, the body and frame were married and the mechanicals sorted by the expert technicians at D.A.P. It was then handed to the experienced staff at Performance Unlimited for the full finishing treatment. Every inch of this beautiful truck has been carefully assessed and evaluated. Every individual piece was qualified as being in like new condition or was rebuilt or replaced as needed. Many pieces were hand fabricated to ensure that this is the nicest SAHARA ever built. The undercarriage was prepped and treated with Rhino Liner to ensure its longevity. All internal panels were treated with Lizard Skin ceramic insulation and Dynamat insulation to make this truck as quiet as possible. The custom Millennium Yellow paint is a premium base coat/clearcoat system by PPG to ensure the longest lasting, most durable finish possible.
Own an Exotic off-roader of legendary heritage.
If you like to be anonymous when you go out for dinner or cruise the beach, this is not the conveyance for you. It draws a crowd everywhere it goes. Ownership of this exclusive 4x4 built by the legendary professionals at D.A.P. will let your friends and envious observers know that you can afford the quality that only the pro's can provide!
