The Ford Bronco’s fan base is stronger than ever and interest in the discontinued vehicle has been on the rise, especially with the recent interest in O.J. Simpson’s 1993 Ford Bronco. Last one to roll of the assembly line was in 1996 at a Michigan plant and since then there have been rumors of the Bronco making a return. We still don’t have a concrete announcement from Ford on the matter and enthusiasts may not be able to wait that long for a next Gen Bronco.
Seth Burgett is one such enthusiast and he’s launched a business around the needs of Bronco fans.
Burgett will scour the United States for first-gen models in good condition that he can restore and modernize. His business, Gateway Bronco, will update the first gen Broncos mechanically and the interior will be refurbished, all within a two month timeframe.
Buyers can choose between three versions of the original Bronco and all of them will come with 5-year, bumper-to-bumper warranties.
For $80,000 you can get the Fuelie
, a first gen Bronco with a new Ford Coyote 302-cubic-inch V8 powertrain and you can repaint it in whatever color you want along with a leather refurbished interior.
model may go for $120,000 but the original paint and patina will be preserved along with a new Ford Coyote 302-cubic-inch V8 engine, leather interior, four-wheel disc brakes and more.
Or if you have a bit more to spend, maybe the Warrior
will be of interest. It comes with the Ford Coyote powertrain but you’ll also be getting four-link suspension, Wilwood brakes, heated seats with custom leather and a few more additions.
Is anyone interested?
