A fad in every rule, brutality and muscle, with touches of exclusive refinement, this Icon Derelict ’52 Chevy Business Coupe built by the guys at Icon is my kind of classic.It’s astounding. Got a all-aluminum, fuel-injected 6.2-liter General Motors LS3 V8 and cranks out 430 horsepower.
It is the engine that mounts the Corvette C6 or the Chevrolet Camaro. It is associated with a GM 4L65Eautomatic transmission, which sends all the power to the rear axle without filters. It features an Art Morrison chassis and a completely reworked suspension.
Built for daily use and serious performance, this car has surprised many a driver as it leaves anything in the rearview mirror once the light is green!
The man behind it – and Icon – is Jonathan Ward.
In next video (in beautiful Vimeo quality) Jonathan explains why Icon does what it does and how the ’52 Chevy Coupe and this ’52 Chrysler Town and Country Wagon turned from junkers into derelicts.
