California-based high-end vehicle restoration firm ICON 4×4 is known for their exquisite craftsmanship. But even by their standards, their latest build is a unique work of art: this stunning 1970 Ford F-100 Ranger that belongs to their Reformer series.
ICON’s Reformer series is designed to maintain a vehicle’s stock aesthetics as much as possible, while offering the best in modern performance and luxury beneath the surface. This exquisite truck delivers on both promises.
Mechanically, the F-100 Ranger has been overhauled entirely. It has a Ford-sourced 5.0-liter Coyote V8 engine putting out 426 horsepower, connected to a Ford AOD automatic transmission and a dual transfer case. It boasts a modern suspension with Dynatrac ProRock Axles, Fox shocks and Eibach coil springs, and employs a hydro-boosted sport brake system with Brembos to handle the increased power. For a bit more modernity, it even has power steering.
Icon 4×4 made extensive interior modifications as well, including a new HVAC system, digital gauges and hand-stitched leather designed to match the original vinyl interior. At the buyer’s request, however, the truck still has the original hand-crank windows.
How much would it cost to recreate this build? Icon 4×4 didn’t give specific pricing for this Ranger, but assume replicating it would cost well into six figures. Icon 4×4 lists a similar vintage K5 Blazer build from 2015 on its site for $235,000. If you want a similar vehicle that’s a little cheaper, consider Ball and Buck’s new line of custom Jeep CJ-8 Scrambler pickups; those can be yours for roughly as little as $65,000.
