The Icon Bronco: A Dream Team Car

This is restoration at it’s best, if you can call it that. It was created by a company called Icon in LA founded by Jonathan Ward, that takes classic 4X4s and turns them into modern performance vehicles, keeping their classic good looks. This Bronco is in a custom matt volcanic grey, with a hint of metallic (we took the liberty of adding the pink Elcyclista stripe), a 5.0 Ford Coyote engine (the one from the Mustang) with manual transmission. They have literally reconsidered every item on this truck. They re-machined everything from door handles to the wing mirrors, put in architectural glass and redesigned the graphics on the Speedo. Now that is attention to detail.

  1. At <10mpg for this monster, the team would need deep pockets!
    But perhaps worthwhile for Paris Roubaix (or Battenkill). Not so good for the high mountains and twisty hairpin descents…

  2. Never even thought of that…well since our fake sponsor will be VERY rich, we will make this our classics car and just “monster” all over the Skoda’s and Mercedes. But you are right – we may need something different for the Alps. Maybe this? http://www.autoguide.com/auto-news/wp-content/uploads//2011/01/2010_Bentley_ContinentalFlyingStar11.jpg

  3. I used to live around the corner from this shop and saw it grow from just repairing ol Toyotas to what they have now. Great story.

  4. They look amazing right. Their attention to detail is unbelievable. I would love to see what they would do if you handed them an old steel Colnago and said money is no option, bring it back to life.
