That looks pretty sweet! I'm a big fan of the old broncos and this looks like a good remake of them. I was just talking to a buddy yesterday about if Ford would release the modern version of the old bronco, they'd have a winner on their hands. I had no idea there were actually doing it!

I've always wondered why a manufacturer hasn't rebuilt a popular model using the same sheet metal with updated underpinnings/safety. Nissan refurbished some 280z models several years back, but I'd like to see a new car.

That is already available and has been for a year or two...

ICON vehicles has been making modern retro vehicles for a while.

As stated above Icon is currently building a Bronco. Word is that the company that is stamping the bodies, from the original tooling, will soon be offering just the body. The same company already produces several different Mustang bodies that sell for $15K and up.

I was hoping Ford would build them so they would be affordable. ICON makes FJ40's and 45's as well. If you have $125k lying around, you can buy one!

I agree.....a retro bronco for $35,000 may be do-able for the average US market, but not $125,000. I am sure the ICONs are worth every penny (maybe).

Would be nice to see Ford create a Bronco that would pay homage to the original. It was a great vehicle and a classic look. (I am also partial to the International Harvester Scout....It is a shame they were rustbuckets....)
