We’ve seen more vintage Broncos used in fashion and lifestyle magazines lately. More so than their Japanese brother, the Land Cruiser FJ40. This Bronco is bone-stock. And that is a rarity in the Bronco world. They tend to get modified for all sorts of reasons. We really like this color combination too. Read More
I was reading this month’s issue of Hemmings and there is an article declaring the ’66-’77 Ford Bronco has a “Buy”. They go on to say that there is no bad time to buy a Bronco and values will continue to rise steadily in the coming years. But that isn’t the reason to buy a Bronco. They are easy to come by in various stages of condition and parts are relatively inexpensive. A decent Bronco could cost $8,000 all the way up to an eye-popping $40,000. Now let’s get to today’s featured Bronco. It is the holy grail of Broncos: the limited edition Bill Stroppe Edition. Read More
Unlike the FrankenAlfa we featured today, this Bronco is bone-stock. And that is a rarity in the Bronco world. They tend to get modified for all sorts of reasons. This one not only remains intact but it is all original right down to the exterior finish. The pictures are fairly high-resolution and it appears to us to need a good detailing to get those swirl marks out. If there is enough paint left maybe a wet sanding would work. But in either case, it will look infinitely better. Read More
This is a mostly original Ford Bronco that has remained uncut and largely unmodified for 43 years. And during that time it has accumulated only 13,000 miles. It is documented but the mileage is not really that important considering this is a 4X4 you want to use and enjoy. It is outfitted with a roll bar and the interior has been weather-proofed. Read More
These later 1st generation Broncos are our favorite. That’s probably why we feature them from time to time. This one is a first generation Bronco known in the Bronco world as an Early Bronco. Earlies were built until 1977 when the Big Bronco took its place. These early cars were pretty spartan and all were built with 4-wheel drive. Read More
We continually post fine examples of uncut, original Ford Broncos and I think we might need to explain why. There are only 3 collectible 4X4s: the Land Rover, Toyota FJ40 and the Ford Bronco (sorry JEEP CJ fans). Each one has their own distinct persona based on the country of origin. Ford product manager Donald N. Frey and General Manager, Lee Iacocca, who pushed it into production, conceived the Bronco. The same duo was responsible for bringing the Mustang to market. They must have been pretty busy guys. In some ways, the Bronco is more “all new” than the Mustang, from an engineers perspective that is.
We have featured good, solid Ford Broncos before and fans just love them. They have become so popular with off-roaders, many have been modified to cope with the demands of that hobby. We love seeing the creativity and build quality of some of those modified Broncos but it is nice to see one preserved in original condition. When we came across this ’68, we thought it deserved to be placed in our spotlight. Read More

But it was based on an existing platform: the Falcon. Read More
