Based on a first-gen “shovel-nose” model, Icon’s 1965 Jeep Wagoneer is the perfect American beach ride for the family, packing modern precision and reliability in a handsome timeless package.

The project started with a “nice old example in respectable condition,” which has been blasted to raw metal. The team at Icon 4×4 then fitted the truck with high-performing parts such as a U.S. steel chassis by Art Morrison (powder coat finish), four-bar rear suspension, radius arm front suspension, Eibach coils and Fox Racing shocks, Dynatrac Dana axle assemblies, Brembo brakes, and a no-nonsense large stainless steel TIG welded fuel tank. Serious power comes from a fuel injected 420HP LS3 V8.

Inside, the offroader sports a cleaner dash with cool metal knobs inspired from the originals, a restored steering wheel, Bluetooth audio system, interior cargo lights, and quilted-pattern seats in high-quality Knoll fabrics. Finished with a fresh coat of paint and a sweet-looking side trim and wood insert, this truck oozes pure vintage style and is ready to put many more miles under its wheels.
