Editor’s Note: We love scouring the internet for reasons to spend money we don’t have on cars we daydream about owning, and these are our picks this week. All prices listed are bid amounts at the time of publishing.
You may have heard some news about the 2020 Ford Bronco this week. Word on the street is the new Bronco (maybe) won’t have a V8 and will only be available with four doors. Which is (possibly) a shame, because the original Bronco looked so damn good with just two doors and sounded fantastic with a big ol’ Windsor V8 up front. So just in case the new Ford Bronco only comes with four doors and the engine bay only sees six cylinders, here are four classic Broncos in the configuration that made it famous.
1968 Ford Bronco
What we like: There may be a few niggling problems with this particular Bronco, though the modern touches make it so much more desirable. The long list of added parts should definitely inspire confidence if you ever decide to take it off-road.
From the seller: I have had the Bronco for 18 years. Drove it around for a while, then started the restoration. The Bronco was completed three years ago, is garage kept and only driven in good weather.
Mileage: 46,098 (restored)
Location: Redwood City, California
1974 Ford Bronco
What we like: If the previous Bronco is all about modern add-ons, this beauty is all about being original. It shows some signs of aging but looks incredible for being 43 years old.
From the seller: This Bronco is in pretty good shape and only has (according to the previous owner) 57,200 original miles on it. The previous owner was the son of the second owner. This gentleman inherited it from his father upon his passing. He said that it was mainly used on the weekends for fun trips up in the mountains.
Location: Laramie, Wyoming
1977 Ford Bronco
What we like: If you want the slight appearence of a classic Bronco but the capabilities of a modern off-roader and rock crawler, this is the resto-mod you’ve been looking for.
From the seller: N/A
Mileage: 500 (restored)
Location: Santa Clara, Utah
1973 Ford Bronco
What we like: And if resto-mods aren’t your thing, this beautifully restored Bronco represents the iconic SUV in its prime, working the same as, if not better than it did the day it left the factory.
From the seller: This project was intended to complete a rare goal, blending modern upgrades with a numbers-matching fully rebuilt V8 302CI drivetrain original to the truck, and an almost impossible-to-find uncut original body.
Location: San Francisco, California
