I found a passion for early ford broncos about 10 years ago. I purchase my first 1975 Bronco one day on eBay, sight unseen (would not recommend!). It arrived and on day 1, I started working and improving it. I became obsessed with understanding the nuances of the car, how to make it my own, create never before seen add-ins and customizations and just make it something special. I learned so much from that first project, but the biggest learning was the order at which I did certain upgrades/changes. To get it to the level I really wanted, I would have to undo a lot of work I already completed. So, I reluctantly sold it and vowed on my next Bronco, I was going to do it right.
5 years later, I started what I said was going to be my lifelong Bronco build. I wanted to create something truly unique and set out to get inspiration from a variety of builders across the USA. During that time, the Bronco market skyrocketed, and I found myself sitting on an asset that had tripled in value. Instead of doing the smart thing and just selling it, I doubled down and wanted to make sure I made this thing into the coolest bronco I had ever seen.
It took 5 years to complete, mainly because I would just do bits and pieces here and there, holding out for those big purchases and trying to make sure I could afford this thing long term. I built it in a way that inspired use. I want my kids to jump in and out of it without me freaking out that the paint is going to chip. I want them to jump in the car wet and not worry about the seats getting messed up. I want it to be used to create memories, and that is what I did. I also had a desire to share those memories and experiences with others, which is why I decided to list to available for anyone to drive. Too often these custom builds are left in a garage collecting dust or behind some velvet rope at a car show. I believe these need to be enjoyed and there is no better experience than to drive down a country road, music blasting, kids in the back and living in the moment.
I am excited for everyone to see and experience this incredible 1970 Ford Bronco. I have one of my favorite quotes carved into the humidor that is in the glove box that I think perfectly represents my intention with this car. "We are here for a good time, not a long time." And yes, I know its backwards from the original =).
