Great looks, classic styling and mean V8 power is how’d one describe the gorgeous nautical blue 5-Door Station Wagon By Osprey Custom 4×4. The world-renowned builders of custom rigs have seamlessly combined modern automotive crafts with heritage motoring with their bespoke 4×4.
Powering the beast is a bulletproof 6.2L Corvette LS3 V8 engine paired with a smooth-shifting 6L80E 6-speed automatic transmission controlled by a PCS® push-button gear selector with LED display. The heavy-duty LT230 transfer case, equipped with a center differential lock, ensures that all four wheels receive as much of the 430+ horsepower and 425+ pound-feet of torque as possible. Additionally, the vehicle boasts updated front and rear disc brakes.

The newly improved front and rear axles of the vehicle are now installed on a brand-new chassis that has been hot-dipped galvanized for added durability. The slightly raised Terraﬁrma® shocks and springs further enhance this sturdy foundation. The chassis is equipped with Terraﬁrma® caster-corrected front and cranked rear radius arms, track rod, drag link, and steering damper, all protected by a robust aluminum front skid plate. The vehicle proudly rests on striking satin black 18” Kahn “1983” alloy wheels wrapped in 275/70R18 Goodyear® Wrangler Territory® MT (Maximum Traction) tires. These tires boast an open tread design that provides exceptional traction both on and off-road, ensuring you have the grip you need even when driving beyond the pavement.
The body has been meticulously finished in a captivating Nautical Blue Metallic, giving it a deep and vibrant look. The sleek and sophisticated design is further enhanced by the deep-tinted, flush-fitting rear side and rear quarter-glass panels, creating a seamless and stylish appearance. To complete the exterior look, color-matched wheel arches and trim add a touch of elegance.
At the front, the rig flaunts a glossy black KBX® grille with a satin silver wire mesh insert, exuding an air of confidence. The gloss black light surrounds and side intake, along with the forced-air wing top vents adorned with satin silver accents, add a touch of flair and sophistication. Every detail has been carefully considered, including the Optimill® LED-illuminated puddle lamps and custom LED-illuminated, laser-etched “Osprey” black anodized aluminum door handles that exude a sense of luxury. The black anodized aluminum door, bonnet, and windscreen hinges perfectly complement the color scheme.
Modern LED headlamps were added to illuminate the night with style and precision, featuring smoked marker, turn, reverse, and tail lamps, ensuring optimal visibility and a contemporary look. The rig’s front end also features a sleek satin black powder-coated slim-line bumper, which boasts two integrated LED daytime running lamps for added safety and a touch of pizzazz.
Outback, there’s a satin black powder-coated North American Spec (NAS) step bumper specifically designed to accommodate a high-definition rearview camera, a 2” hitch receiver, and jacking/recovery points. This bumper not only adds functionality but also adds a touch of ruggedness and style to the vehicle.
