The latest addition to ICON’s ‘Derelict’ series has been rolled out at SEMA, showing to all attendees the unique world of restomodding.
This particular project is based around a 1946 Oldsmobile that has retained its patina-infused exterior – which is a nice way to say that it looks like a piece of rusted garbage.
Under the skin however, it is much more modern. For starters, a 502 cubic-inch V8 engine has been installed, delivering 528 hp and 607 lb-ft of torque.
Bringing up to date are a fully-independent suspension up front and a four-link setup at the rear with adjustable coilovers all around, Wilwood disc brakes, a rack and pinion steering and a lightweight stainless steel exhaust system.
The cabin has also benefited from some changes like new Italian leather, Gabardine wool, hand-painted wood and modernized gauges.
