Jonathan Ward’s first sentence in his newest video was “this is a weird one” and I would agree. This fourth generation (1991-1996) Chevrolet Caprice might be one of the weirdest projects ICON has ever built. Jonathan says that ICON tends to not work on late-70’s, 80’s and 90’s cars because there is a lot of plastic and “no soul.” But after talking to the client Jonathan eventually came around and his team took the “under the radar but intimidating” design theme as a challenge. In true ICON fashion nothing was left untouched. All of the exterior badges, door handles and grill were 3d scanned and CNC’d out of aluminum. Under the hood they installed a 6.2 L LS3 E-ROD crate motor which produces 430 horsepower. Behind that sits a either a 6L80 or 6L90 six-speed automatic transmission. The flat black body rides on a full Hotchkis suspension and Baer brakes. All these mods results in one of the nicest and probably most expensive 4th-gen Caprice in the world.
