ICON Old School Edition FJ44 Land Cruiser Packs an LS V8

ICON is showing off its latest Old School Edition Toyota FJ44 Land Cruiser. The vehicle has been completely restored and features a wide range of modern amenities. Its aluminum body is powder-coated in a Eucalyptus Green color with a seven-layer insulated top in gray. It’s a fantastic color combination that looks old-school and modern at the same time.

The original Toyota engine was ditched in favor of a GM 6.2-liter LS V8, making up to 430 horsepower and 450 lb-ft. of torque. Power goes to an Atlas II 2-speed transfer case via an Aisin Warner AX15 five-speed manual transmission. ICON also significantly upgraded the 1972 truck’s brakes with hydroboost-assisted Brembos.

The FJ44 is ready for just about any terrain. Its suspension is completely redone with FOX Racing coil-overs, Dana 60 rear axles, and Dana 44s in front. The truck rolls on BFGoodrich all-terrain 285/65/18 tires on vintage-inspired forged aluminum wheels.

The interior is also customized with the new state-of-the-art multimedia entertainment system featuring navigation, Bluetooth, Apple CarPlay, and more. The bucket seats are completely upgraded, and a pair of jump seats were added to the vehicle’s rear. ICON is asking for a wallet-busting $237,000 for the Old School FJ44.
