2020 can’t come soon enough for fans of cool Ford Broncos, when Ford’s revived version of the 4×4 hits showrooms. Traditionalists who won’t be satisfied by any new wannabe Bronco don’t have to wait, however, thanks to Gateway Bronco in St. Louis, which offers better-than-new upgraded 1966-’77 Broncos built to order
The Restomod Fuelie model from Gateway includes a fuel-injected 347-cubic inch stroked version of Ford’s Coyote 5.0 crate motor and the option of either a five-speed manual transmission or a four-speed automatic.
Four-wheel disc brakes with a front/rear proportioning valve ensures that this souped-up Bronco stops as well as it accelerates with its boosted power.
The cockpit gets leather, seat heaters and air conditioning to help expand the number of days when you can enjoy your classic Bronco with the roof off.
Gateway says the paint is show-quality and that all panels are completely straight, doors are expertly hung and the whole vehicle is rust-protected and covered by a five-year bumper-to-bumper warranty.
The price of admission is R1 000 000.
