Default The new "old" early bronco

I was somewhat excited until I watched the video. Cool bronco no doubt but still the same body and frame. 200k for restoration? Give me a break. Still love the early bronco though, mine gets a new tranny everynow and then

ICON builds nice vehicles - but agree - way overpriced....

200k is a little steep, but that would be a sweet ride!! I have a 94 with 167k miles on it. I wish ford had taken the excursion chopped out the middle of it and welded it back together, that would have made an awesome new Bronco!

My friend had one of those that was restored and updated. I thought his looked better than this one and he sold it for 50k. Very similar internals but also had ARB airlockers and a nice cage. LOVE these Broncos.

Icon does build very high end stuff. They are usually not restorations. Complete custom brand new builds with the best of everything. I bet they have 100k-120k in each one. Still leaves a pretty high profit margin.

I owned a 1974 with a 302 and 4:11 rear, 4:09 front. It would take a camaro off the line (and sound like it would blow up at 65mph). No jeep could touch it in the mud! That being said, 200k, LMAO! If I pay 200k for a vehicle it would be 2 ZO6 vettes and a convertible (for rainy days, haha).
