ICON has a talent for breathing new life into long-forgotten classic 4×4 vehicles. If you take a minute to comb through their site, you can see for yourself just how capable and impressive they truly are. With this 1960 Willys Overland Wagon, they have proven themselves, yet again, as both visionaries and craftsmen. Taken from West Virginia, where the Overland was used to ferry kids around a summer camp and the surrounding town, the resurrection of this workman’s wagon is a truly magnificent thing.
Thanks to the care of the owners, the wagon retained its original paint and interior with only minor touch ups, including coating the cab with Dynamat to reduce noise. But, inside the engine compartment, this beauty is a modern beast. ICON engineered a modern GM Erod emissions certified 5.3L fuel-injected V8 with a 5-speed transmission, fitted a new Art Morrison chassis with independent front suspension, added Hydroboost four wheel disk brakes, installed a modern a/c, and even equipped the wagon with Bluetooth audio technology–and that’s just the beginning.
