What happens when you pair serious off-road chops with 270-plus horsepower and classy wood paneling?With this singularly beautiful 1978 Jeep Wagoneer,SoCal clothing company Iron & Resin teamed up with New Legend 4×4 to find out.
This Wagoneer is part ofNew Legend 4×4's转轮系列。What that means is that it looks and feels like a restored classic Jeep Wagoneer but drives like a modern vehicle.
To be sure,这不是你爷爷的SUV——尽管他会喜欢你的口味。
Iron & Resin Jeep Wagoneer: Vintage Looks
Iron & Resin's vintage,hardwearing vibe inspired the rugged build and retro-cool interior.Materials like Horween leather,waxed canvas,andDel Soldiamond serape trim grace both the Wagoneer's interior and Iron & Resin's products.
Like all New Legend Runner Series vehicles,this beauty's aesthetic belies very modern modifications.Don't be fooled by the classy looks,铁树脂公司在其网站上说. "In reality,这些都是现代的，functional performance rigs with a vintage vibe that will get you well off the grid and home again without incident."
The classic brown paint job,铬装饰件，and wood panel accents really sell the vintage vibe.And the stock original hubcaps are a great touch on this retro-cool modern restoration.
钢铁和树脂的新传奇货车是关于让你觉得你开的是1978年的一辆车，but with modern performance and comfort.You do get modern amenities like upgraded steering,焦距立体声系统，air conditioning,甚至巡航控制。On the flipside,you also get classic roll-up crank windows and leaf-spring suspension.
Where this Wagoneer comes up short — in my opinion — is the four-speed automatic transmission.An old classic rig with big horsepower like this begs to be driven,not just steered.我很想看到一个五速手动换档器，经典的长距离投掷，and a third pedal in the driver's footwell.
Under the hood of this classic,你有一个非常现代的5.3L LS V8发动机。它应该适合270马力以上。That's a big improvement over the 140 ponies this 1978 Jeep Wagoneer originally came with.
And this truck should prove even more fun than the original off the pavement.A 3-inch lift,new BFG AT tires,现代的冲击使越野能力提高了一些等级。
另外，现代的刹车可以确保它在路上和越野时都能正常停车。This is especially important with the extra ponies under the hood!
Iron & Resin Wagoneer: Too Cool?
这辆车将为一些人带来各种各样的回忆，并激发那些欣赏经典4x4的人的欲望。It would also feel right at home cruising pavement its whole life with a workaday urbanite behind the wheel.This build is downright cool and defies being pigeonholed to a specific buyer.
I,一方面，would love to throw some kayaks on the roof,camping gear and cold beers in the back,and head for the mountains.This Wagoneer would take me on that adventure in style while being reliable and relatively comfortable.
Of course,最困难的部分是咳嗽，65000美元到95000美元，这是一个典型的新传奇4×4亚军系列建造成本。While many modern restomods cost in the realm of six figures these days,this one is a relative bargain.但它仍然不会便宜。
