The tasteful, restomod 1966 Ford Bronco pictured above is coming to capitalize on the Bronco hype at SEMA 2018 this month.
The vehicle was sponsored by the folks over at United Pacific Industries and put together by the Bloomington, Illinois-based Bronco specialists at Maxlider Brothers Customs.
Sitting under the hood is a 5.0-liter Coyote V8 engine – just like the one you’d find the 2019 Ford Mustang GT. Paired with the engine is a Heavy Duty 4R70W four-speed automatic transmission.
The first-generation Bronco has also received “other modern conveniences,” such as air conditioning, a Bluetooth stereo and power running boards. Despite this, the guys at Maxlider were sure to keep the desirable vintage look intact, opting for brawny vintage-look off-road wheels, a two-tone blue and white paintjob and polished bumpers.
This restomod Bronco gets some features some high-end off-road equipment as well, such as Currie axle housings, Yukon Gear and Axle differentials and axles, a more robust driveshaft from Randy’s Driveshafts and BF Goodrich KM2 tires.
United Pacific’s Coyote-V8 powered Bronco will appear at its SEMA booth in the central hall of the show when it kicks off on October 30th.
