Some love for the Bronco from Top Gear. Check out your "mention" on photo 10...

Also, I'm obsessed with the name plate/badge letters on the hood of the Dodge. Plumbing the face of those letters is such an amazing detail, for a guy who makes letters all day...

In the same industry that gives us West Coast Customs, I'm so glad Icon exists. Those little details (the stainless latch!) just make the truck, let alone the under the hood improvements.

Was cool to see the rendering on Autoblog, I read that blog everyday so it is pretty neat.

Now that answeres my unasked question, why Icon has settled for that Dodge as the next project. In my humble
eyes it lacks the monolithic simplicity that distinguished all other base designs the team had chosen to elevate
through their work so far.

In the photos I can not detect how far you reworked the rear fenders to loose some of that facade like effect that
shows on Lews photo. "Sculpting" something only from one side just doesn't work on 3D objects. (A problem, that is
also visible in the new A and B class, to an extend.)

To make it crystal clear, this nit picking is absolutely coined on the DODGE basemodel, not on the work you and the
team did to it. Would love to see more pics.

Just a technicality... 1965 was a changeover year. While "labeled" a 1965 Dodge pickup, it more correctly represents the '62-64 model.

entered production in March of 1965 (through 1967)

Thank Robbie. Some of the early process sketches. I'll add some more refined renders next.
