Check Out The Fantastic Retro Look Of This Custom Ford Bronco

Marine-grade wood lends a cool surfing vibe to this Ford off-roader.

There was a time when station wagon bodies were customized with wood paneling. The situation eventually devolved into American car companies applying fake wood to the sides of pretty much any vehicle without a trunk. 

Ford’s Bronco 4×4 escaped the tacky craze of fake wood siding, so the crew at Classic Ford Broncos decided it would be cool to build one with the look of a classic surf board-toting, beach-cruising woody wagon —and they used real wood to do it.

The result is this fantastic 1974 Bronco, tricked out with real marine-grade wood, which is sure to survive the elements. 

Gorgeous surfing safari style carries throughout the cabin as well. It has a cool, custom, look that manages to remain period-correct, with a wood-trimmed headliner and wood-rimmed steering wheel.

The shop ditched the Bronco’s original engine in favor of a modern fuel-injected 5.0-liter crate engine. It comes complete with air conditioning to provide the comfort drivers expect even from their classics.

The Columbus, Ohio-area shop is asking $75,000 for this unique custom Bronco. Ford didn’t build woody Broncos, so consider it money well-spent for such a one-of-a-kind ride.
