There's a lot of off-roading fans out there and I believe it's safe to say that over 75% of them are also fans of Jeeps. Thus, Jeeps are the most common choice for such adventures. But who's to say there wasn't a second...even better choice? That's right, the Ford Bronco! During the production years of the first generation Bronco (1966-77), it outperformed the Jeep in every way. It was also open to upgrades like the ability to drop in a Ford 5.0 V8 and boost to nearly 500hp. The Bronco is one mean off-roading machine and still has a cult following today. My dad is a big fan of Broncos because he has owned four of them. I decided to build the model to honor the wonderful little truck. Please comment!
About this creation
Rear view. Spare tire included. On the stock Broncos, the tire was usually mounted on the inside of the tailgate.
Side view. This is with the removable white roof on. Notice the working independent suspension.
Front view with roof on. The white fender flares were a common modification for early Broncos.
Rear view with hatch open and tire swung open. Unfortunately the tailgate doesn't fold down on this model.
Interior and rear tool setup. Gotta love those roll bars!
There is a tool palette in the back for unexpected off-roading disasters...
Front view with side doors open. Notice the brush bar and winch on the front.
Winch in action! The string extends to about 4 ft. long.
Cool, turned out great. You made a really accurate replica of the Bronco. Great details all around like the independent suspension and the spare tire mount. Great car once again! Keep building! -Anthony Dunne
