Restoring and modifying old Ford Broncos has become extremely popular. That popularity is the reason Ford opted to revive the SUV, dormant since the mid-1990s. There are many exquisite Bronco builds out there. But few will look as stunning as this 1973 Bronco that just popped up for auction on Bring a Trailer.
The Bronco is a custom rebuild by Illinois-based Maxlider Brothers Customs. The seller says it was a custom project and not one of their package builds. The Bronco has a 347ci V8 Stroker crate engine from Blueprint Engines, which puts out 415 hp and 415 lb-ft of torque. That engine is paired with a five-speed manual transmission. The new powertrain has about 4,000 miles on it since the build.
That paint job is a fetching Norway Green, a variant of the British racing green that will be the best color option on just about any car. The interior strikes the perfect balance, being clean and premium-looking but not to the point where you would have an aneurysm if your dogs get in there.
Bidding for the 1973 Bronco is already up to $45,000, with a couple of days remaining and multiple bidders coming in hot. So don’t expect it to go cheap. But if your frame of reference is an exquisite custom Bronco from Icon 4×4 or Gateway, it could still end up being a relative bargain.
