Default Brand New Classic Ford Bronco

Brand new classic ford broncos now on sale




Gateway Bronco of Hamel, Ill., which started out as a restoration shop specializing in the classic SUVs just over two years ago, has been granted the first license from Ford to build ground-up recreations of the 1966 to 1977-era Bronco.

This allows it to manufacture vehicles with all-new frames and bodies and sell them with Ford Bronco branding, although you’ll find that they are a little different from the classics under the skin.

As it does with its resto-mods, which it will continue to sell, Gateway updates the suspensions, brakes and engines, using either a 347 cubic-inch “stroker” V8 or a 5.0-liter Coyote from the current F-150.

Several models are offered that run from the $95,000 Fuelie to the $180,000 Modern Day Warrior, which is equipped with the six-speed transmission and rear suspension from a Ford F-150 Raptor.

They’re also equipped with a noise and vibration reduction system engineered by Gateway and can be trimmed in high-end woods, leathers or pretty much anything the customer requests.

Founder and CEO Seth Burgett told Fox News Autos that a $250,000 model is being added to the mix that comes with either a Shelby supercharger or a Gateway-designed twin-turbocharger, along with other performance upgrades that include a Borla exhaust and Brembo brakes.

95-250K - pretty steep even though it's an old school classic.

"Starting at $95k"

Even still, the restored originally equipped ones are going for mid-$60's, $120k isn't nutty for a hand-built, low build quantity, and all new and updated ride. Adding $30k to integrate a coyote and electronics makes sense, but that $250k number is nuts.
