A one-off Dodge D200 Pickup has been prepared in conjunction with Banks Power for the 2012 SEMA Show.
Icon is on a mission "to modernize the best in classic automotive design." The vintage-style truck specialist has been doing the motto justice these past few years, as the new Bronco and reimagined Toyota FJ-44 have garnered the LA-based firm a well-earned following for their flawless attention to detail. The company's latest project is a special one-off 1965 Dodge D200 pickup was built in conjunction with Banks Power, and is about to debut at the SEMA show in Las Vegas.
Conceived to fit in the Californian's Reformer Series, the build combines classic style with modern mechanics for a thoroughly useful and painstakingly crafted truck. The Icon D200 is based on a modern Dodge 3500 chassis with a 5.9-liter Cummins inline-six turbodiesel, good for a whopping 975 lb-ft of torque. The truck rides on a 4.5-inch Baja 100 Chase lift kit with Fox 3.0 reservoir shocks. Wheels come in the form of 17-inch Hutchinsons with Monster rims finished in matte black and wrapped in 37-inch BF Goodrich all-terrain tires.
Banks Power has contributed the iQ Man-Machine Interface, Monster Diesel Dual Exhaust, Power PDA Screen, brake exhaust system and Monster Ram Intake Manifold. A high-quality interior made with free-range bison leather sourced from American Indian Reservations won't be popular with West Coast hippies, but looks well suited from where we sit, while a high-quality audio system provides the soundtrack for whatever off-roading adventure the Icon D200's driver might embark upon.
