It's 2019, and the Bronco reboot Ford has been promising forever is due out next year. But that modern SUV will almost certainly lack the gritty charm that made the original pickup a stone-cold classic, which is why we're thankful for this "Four Horseman" Bronco restomod from Maxlider Brothers Customs.
The Chicago-based shop started with the frame from a '66—the year the first-gen Bronco was launched—and lengthened the chassis by 26 inches to accommodate two extra doors and seats.
A whopping 670 horsepower comes courtesy of Roush Performance's supercharged 5.0-liter Coyote V-8 mated to a six-speed automatic transmission with overdrive, while custom four-wheel disc brakes provide stopping power. And those are just of few of the major upgrades given to this undeniably awesome vintage pickup.
Car and Driver has more details:
The Bronco is four-wheel drive; the axles are from Currie Industries, with Yukon Gear & Axle supplying the driveshafts, differentials, and locking hubs. MJR Industries created the custom suspension, which includes Fox Racing shocks. BFGoodrich 37 x 12.5/20 tires wrap 20-by-12.5-inch gloss-black wheels.
Power-deploying assist steps help passengers climb aboard. The custom-fabricated interior includes three rows of seats, upholstered in marine performance vinyl, while Wetsounds Bluetooth sound bars and subwoofers help supply the tunes.
Given that the less powerful, two-door Bronco restomods we've seen before sell for around $200,000, don't be surprised to chip in another 100 grand to own one of these epic builds.
