ICON’s FJ44 ‘Old School’ Build Adds V8 Performance & Tech To A ‘72 Land Cruiser

The timeless good looks of a 1972 Toyota Land Cruiser are pretty hard to improve upon, so ICON 4×4 kept them mostly preserved with its latest build, the FJ44 Old School. The hand-built truck keeps the classic look of the iconic off-roader but adds loads of improvements everywhere else.

One of the most significant enhancements on the ICON FJ44 Old School is under the hood, where you’ll find an aluminum LS 6.2 V8 from GM making 430 horsepower and 450 lb-ft of torque. The beefy engine is mated to a five-speed manual transmission from Aisin Warner, while Brembo Sport brakes, Dynatrac off-road axles, and Fox Racing coil-over sport suspension all ensure that ICON certainly didn’t skimp when it came to outfitting this FJ44 with the best parts available. That applies to the vehicle’s creature comforts, too. The truck sports a NEX 8600 multimedia system that’s complete with Apple Carplay, a backup camera, Bluetooth, and more. This rugged labor of love will keep you comfortable and looking good on and off-road, and you can order one for yourself starting at $237,000.

Purchase: $237,000+
