ICON bringing 1965 Dodge pickup to SEMA 2012
Unlike other custom rigs built by ICON, the 1965 Dodge D200 crew cab pickup shown on the right in the artist’s rendering will not become a new production offering from ICON as this former military pickup is said to be a 1-off for an anonymous customer. Because of that fact, no price has been stated for the ICON 1965 Dodge D200 but based on what we can see in the picture on the right combined with the few bits of build information – this should be one of the stars of the 2012 SEMA Show.
The ICON 1965 Dodge D200 features the 4-door Crew Cab body from 1965 but this body has been fitted to a modern Dodge Ram 3500 chassis platform. Included from the modern Ram 3500 is the 5.9L Cummins Turbo Diesel engine that has been modified with help from Banks Power to pound out a whopping 975lb-ft of torque (horsepower unspecified) while also including an engine braking system to help slow this brawny vintage pickup. Helping the ICON 1965 Dodge D200 to be better off road is a 4.5” Baja 1000 Chase lift kit that helps make room for the black Hutchinson rims wrapped in proper off-road rated rubber.
