Bizarre Car of the Week: 1987 Land Rover Defender custom pickup

Built by the Land Rover specialists at D.A.P. Enterprises in Springfield, Vermont, this custom "Sahara" pickup may be the most unique Defender that can be found Stateside.


  1. Does it still have a 6 volt generator and positive ground?

  2. Looking great!

  3. Positive ground? Well was Lucas Electric named, "the prince of darkness."

  4. Ah, 6 volt electrics. Remember hooking up two batteries in parallel, so the car would start on sub-zero mornings?


Please keep your comments polite and on-topic. No profanity
