All of Icon 4x4’s Ford Bronco or Toyota FJ40 restorations are built with an eye for detail, an emphasis on substance and usability over unnecessary flash. Icon built 14 Broncos for customers in 2017, with plans to build 17 by the end of 2018, but this 1966 Bronco roadster is new territory for the outfit. It’s the first that Icon has built in the ‘Derelict’ style that it adopted for a handful of previous car builds. The concept for every Derelict build is that it has to look untouched from the outside (read: patina), yet offer the reliability, drivability, and capability of a much more modern car.
