Icon's latest Derelict goes back to the 1960s with a fine example of a Willys Overland wagon. The car has been thoroughly restored and overhauled, though you wouldn't be able to tell as it looks like it just left the factory. Powering the car is a 5.3L GM Erod V8 that provides plenty of power and is mated with a 5-speed manual transmission. 

The inside of the car gets a Dynamat coating throughout to protect from corrosion and it helps reduce road noise for a quieter ride. You'll also find an Art Morrison chassis with independent front suspension, Hydroboost four wheel disc brakes, rack and pinion steering, a modern air conditioning system, and a modern audio system with Bluetooth connectivity and iPhone dock.
